How do i upgrade my garmin nuvi 200 gps? (never been upgraded


Hello,

Download and install the Garmin commuicator plugin to your computer
http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator/
This will allow the nuvi to transfer data back and forth to Garmin's server.
Connect your nuvi to your computer and run the Garmin WebUpdater to update the software on the nuvi.
Download and Install WebUpdater.
To update the mapping, you will need to purchase a map update subscription.
https://my.garmin.com/maps/chooseDeviceType.htm?
Once the subscription is activated and registered to the nuvi, follow the download instructions to download the map. This will usually take from 3 to 4 hours or more depending on your internet download speed.
The nuvi 200 is a discontinued model and you may want to consider upgrading to a new GPS as a new nuvi with lifetime mapping can be purchased for about $150.00.

I have a 200 nuvi gps, it always takes me the long way to my destinaotion, how do I update it?


If you are willing to spend $89.00 you can purchase a lifetime maps update/upgrade through the Garmin website. All you have to do is log into their website - www.garmin.com - connect your Garmin to your computer with the USB cable and purchase the upgrade. You might want to consider purchasing a new Garmin that comes with lifetime maps as your 200 is an older unit and its life may be short. A new unit, like a 1300LM, runs $139.99 at Best B**, as of 01/30/11, will come with a new fresh battery and the newest maps pre-loaded and it will allow you to update those maps FREE for the life of the unit. These ideas might help you wayward travels. GOOD LUCK

Sd card lost frm 255w nuvi


I'm assuming your referring to the map upgrade card. If that's what you need, you will, unfortunately need to buy a new one. If that's what you need to do I'd suggest you get the lifetime map upgrade package instead. It's increased cost is modest and allows you to upgrade your maps a few times a year for the life of the unit. On the downside the upgraded map downloads take over an hour to complete with a high speed Internet connection.

Yes, you will need to download the webupdater program from Garmin to get new maps for your Nuvi 200. Transfer the files to your SD memory card and then plug that SD card into your Nuvi 200. Click on the link below to get started

I have a nuvi 200 and I live in Jacksonville FL there are many new roads, new highways and I drive a lot and want to update my GPS so I dont come to a lot of dead ends. What do I do?


You can update the maps using either Garmin or other third party maps. The accuracy will depend on how old the mapping data was that is used to create the map. So you want to find out if the map in that area is recently updated. You may also find that a regional map may show the details in some areas where a larger map won't.

To upgrade using Garmin you just go to garmins website

http://www8.garmin.com/updatemaps/

You may find the map update is free or you may update for a fee or get a lifetime update subscription. The gps is hooked up through the usb cable and will download and instal the updates. It's painless (sort of ;-]) and quick.

On the screen of my satnav it says i need to upgrade because it is more than a year old , my satnav is a garmin nuvi 200


No, Your Garmin 200W is simply informing you that a update to 2010 is avalable, simply by a date code. Depending on your area you msy have new listings in your area, Coffee shops, ATM, & Hotel listings and new roads & extits
Your current map 2008 will still work just as it did. You can update your maps to the 2010 currently out from Gamins web site, I think the cost is right at $75 per unit

Need a manual for Garmin nuvi 200. Lost manual and need to upgrade maps. Do I send the gps back to manufacturer for upgrade?


Here is the link for the full Nuvi 200 manual. No, you do not need to send the unit back. You can purchase a map online and download the map to your Nuvi using a USB to mini-USB cable.

GARMIN NUVI 200 SAYS NO DETAILED MAPS FOUND THAT SUPPORT ROUTING


You can download new maps..........free......................but..........

I had this problem last year with my garmin 200 and when I called they said that I was out of the 60 day time window for a free map upgrade but they would give it to me anyway. They gave me detailed instructions on how to download a new map free of charge but they didnt explain which selection replaced what I already had on mine.
As a result, I downloaded the wrong maps and have much less detail. Even though its the "2009" version, its less acurate than my old maps were. But its worth a shot, better than paying for them.
