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

How do i update my gps


A GPS will help find the shortest and fastest routes to a particular destination. When the maps are out of date, the GPS may not be able to find the best route. A GPS should be updated at least once per year. Some GPS manufacturers will allow the user to download free updated maps; however, many manufacturers require the user to purchase updated maps. Updating a GPS map isn't complicated, and will take about 2 hours to install.

1.Turn on the GPS and plug the USB cable into the USB slot located on the GPS.
2.Plug the other end of the USB cable into the USB slot on the computer.
3.Insert the map update DVD into the computer. If you have a map download, locate and open the file on the computer.
4.Click on Update Firmware located on the main menu. Click "OK" when the firmware is finished updating.
5.Unplug the USB from the computer and turn off the GPS. This will allow the firmware to reset on the GPS. Turn the GPS back on and select the language and time.
6.Reconnect the USB to the computer and click on "Update Map," then click on "Load Maps."
7.Connect to the Internet by clicking on the activation link. This will display the activation number. Find the serial number located on the back of the DVD. If you downloaded the update, a serial number was provided. Enter the serial number and activation code into the update program to continue updating.
8.Close the program after it has completed the update, and unplug the USB from the computer and the GPS. Turn off the GPS to finish the update.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Lost all my SA maps on my garman nüvi 200.


Depending on how long ago you got the maps you may be able to download them again.
  1. Go to www.garmin.com and log into myGarmin.
  2. When you're logged in click on the myMaps tab
  3. There you will see the maps you bought and under them the word "Details" in small blue writing. There may also be a message to say that there's an UPDATE AVAILABLE
  4. Click on DETAILS and this will bring you to a screen where you get the option to download the maps again for a limited length of time.
If the time limit has passed your only option is to buy an update. To do this go back to where it said UPDATE AVAILABLE and click on it. Follow the prompts.

Product nuvi 200w/ powering up the device, all that is displayed is a small picture of a gps connected to a pc via usb cord. Have the update card for last year. A message displayed recently that map was...


The reason that the picture of the gps connected to a pc is shown is because the mini usb plug is not pushed in fully into the back of the satnav. This is a common problem with the 200w as it feels like the plug is fully in when it's not.
When the map is on the satnav for a year it displays the message that it's out of date. It can be updated again at www.garmin.com but if it was updated last year it may not be worth the cost of updating it again as there will be few changes. Generally I update mine every 2 years.

How do i up date the maps garman nuvi 200w/250w


The Garmin GPS are among the easiest to use and they have the most complete mapping on the market. To update the mapping, there are several versions of the software integrated into these road gps. To name a few, city navigator version 8 and City Navigator 2008. With a newer version, you have the most recently built streets, new shops, new parking lots, etc.. To update, there are several ways to proceed. First, before you update your maps, I recommend you check if there is a newer version of the maps, visit garmin and download the plugin. You can also view the maps version directly on your gps.

This 200 series was purchased several years ago and was never registered. I need to update the maps so what do I need to do? I do not have the PC cord.


First you need to buy the correct USB lead that will connect you unit to your PC. They can cost upto £19 brand new.

Then you need to go to myGarmin and register your unit ID with the secure website. Because you will already have maps already on the unit you can buy lifetime updates for £99.

You may have to perfom an unit update prior to the map updates as you have never hooked it up the Garmin website.

Hope this Helps.

2009 map update not loading


Does it recognise the Nuvi? Are you connecting it through a usb Hub. Are the drivers for the nuvi installed properly? Usually there is a folder named USB, thats where the correct drivers reside, and that's where you tell the computer to look when it asks for the drivers.
