I think your battery has failed, you will need to send the GPS back to Garmin for a new battery, the battery is not replaceable by the consumer, it requires special tools, if u don't have them u can destry the GPS

My Nuvi 200 will not charge and the USB port


My condolences. I would suggest you plug the unit in to your computer's USB port using an appropriate data cable (in case you no longer have the Garmin data cable, there are lots of devices, including cameras, that use such a cable with the large USB plug at one end and the mini-USB at the other). That would give you a handle on where the fault lies -- in the auto charger cable itself vs the nuvi's socket. If the nuvi charges from your computer, you're halfway home; if not, I suspect the cost of repairing the nuvi's USB jack could exceed the cost of a replacement unit.

Garmin Nuvi 200 - pic if a sat nat connected to computer whenever I charge to the cig lighter? It had been fine for 6 months now recently come up. Do I need an upgrade or new charger?


I recommend the update, since it is the free alternative of these choices.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Not being able to start up is a sign that the system software or firmware of your Nuvi has become corrupt.

Today i turned on my garmin after a few months, it was working will for about 2 min, then it lost satellites, so I turned it off, then tried to turn it back on, but it never turned back on. the battery...


If the GPS's internal battery is allowed to discharge too far, it will not be possible to recharge with the card charger, until it is brought up to a certain level. Connect the nuvi to a computer with USB cable overnight. This will trickle charge the internal battery to a level that will allow the car charger / cradle to keep the GPS charged from that point on. Anytime the car charger fails to recharge the internal battery, the USB charge method will have to be performed first.

Garmin 200 won't turn on, flashes "Garmin" screen when plugged in


I connected the unit to the car charger instead of the USB charger and then held down the reset for 10-15 seconds, after which the system would show the computer connection on the charger and then boot up when not on the charger.

Garmin nuvi 200 pick up charger as a usb cable


The problem is very simple... The GPS unit perceives whatever you plug in depending on the power supply figure.
If you car charger is not giving enough power, then the GPS perceive the cable as being connected to a pc.... thus not charging. Check with an car electrician if you can raise the power supply on your car...

Nuvi 200 GPS


We did not have a charger to plug in the GPS to charge, so my husband plugged it into a battery charger. I guess the battery charger was low, so it drained the unit rather than charging it. It was so low it would not come on again. I have an electric charger that adapts the car charger into AC current, so I tried that and the unit came on. Problem solved and the GPS is working again. Thanks for responding.
