My garmin 200 gps is not coming on?


Try performing a soft reset on the unit.
Resetting Your nüvi
If your unit stops responding, turn off the unit, and then turn it back on. If this does not help, perform a reset using the reset button on the bottom of the unit.
Caution: Do not reset your nüvi with a ballpoint pen or other sharp object, which can damage your unit.
1. Disconnect the nüvi from external power.
2. Press the Reset button on the bottom of the nüvi.
3. Connect the nüvi to a power source.

A hard reset can also be done but will erase all the user data.
This is done by with the unit off and pressing and holding the bottom right hand corner of the screen while turning the unit on.

You could also try running the Garmin WebUpdater.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

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?
p>If your nuvi 2xx is not acquiring satellite signals, you may need to download and run our WebUpdater program.

Go to:

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.
