Does your Garmin Nuvi 200 or 200W Freeze at Loading Maps?
Does it lock up or stop working?

This tip will describe how to perform a hard reset of the device, and how to backup your 'Favorites' in case the hard reset erases them. The next step in fixing your Nuvi when it doesn't start properly is to update its system software using Garmin WebUpdater.

A hard reset (or Clear All User Data) has been known to resolve unit quirks and strange behavior. It's generally recommended to perform it after a firmware update but is not required by any means. However, if you're seeing quirks and strange behavior with your unit after the firmware update, it is a good idea to do a hard reset of the unit.

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
Perform the Hard Reset:

*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit

  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Remove the battery and wait several minutes.
  3. Install the battery.
  4. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  5. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears.
  6. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite almanac data.


You have now performed a hard reset of your Garmin Nuvi 255W GPS unit.

I hope that helps.

Bought a Garmin Nuvi 200W Turn it on and all it says is No maps loaded..blah blah...It won't do anything!??!


If you just bought it, then you should take it back and have it exchanged. No need trying to fiddle with something that is new, when it can easily be exchanged. Sure, you can call Garmin, wait on hold and have them fix it for you but it will be much easier to exchange the unit. This is not normal for a new unit right out of the box.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 200 and I just bought it from the pawn shop. It is locked...Can someone help me please and thank you.


I am not sure if this will work for a locked unit, but try, with unit OFF, pressing bottom right corner of the screen with your thumb. While still holding down on the screen with your thumb switch the power on and this MAY reset the unit and give you access to the unit. If this does not work call Garmin support at 800-800-1020 and they may be able to help. Good luck.

Question: Why will my nüvi 2xx not find satellite signals?
Answer:
p>If your nuvi 2xx is not acquiring satellite signals, you may need to download and run our WebUpdater program.

Go to:

http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater/

If you are still having issues after updating the software on your unit, you may need to do a full master reset. Please note that a master reset erases Favorites and waypoints. Before proceeding, you may want to back up information you want to keep.

To do a full master reset to the nuvi 200 series unit:

1. Turn off the device.
2. Place your fingertip or the eraser end of a pencil in the bottom right corner of the touchscreen.
3. Apply pressure in the bottom right corner of the screen.
4. While pressing down on the screen, power on the unit and continue pressing on the screen. A message displays to confirm that you really want to delete all user data.
5. Touch Yes.
6. Your unit restarts automatically. You must go through the set up procedure again.

Once you complete the reset, place the nuvi unit outside where it has a clear unobstructed view of the sky for 15-30 minutes. Keep it in a stationary position until it reacquires satellites.

Hard wiring the Nuvi 660


Make sure you use the proper kit for hardwiring. The Garmin DC adapter setp down the voltage from 12vdc to 5vdc. If you don't get the right kit you could fried your unit.
