Take care

I have a Garmin 200 W nuvi gps. I received it a little over a year ago. I was able to just plug it into my car and it would always work. Now after only 2+ hours it shuts down on me. I plugged it into...

if your GPS wasn't in use for long time, the battery could have lost it's charge completlly and in that
case the battery is irreversible damage and won't keep the charge as it used to.
When this happens, the charging circuit inside the GPS sensing the condition of the battery and shuts the unit down to prottect it from damage.(fire/explosion)
Hope am wrong, but in the case if I am not, you need to replace the battery (if it's internaly hard wired) by somone who is competent to do so, or get a new GPS and don't let the battery to go flat.

GPS keeps freezing, then shuts off, then restarts again, and it goes through the same process over and over again

I had a similar problem with my Garmin Nuvi 255. What I found was I needed to downloaded Garmin Webupdater from their website (not sure of the url) and download the new GPS software to my computer and then into my GPS ( in that order, they insist).
Make sure beforehand that you have charged your GPS at least 3-5 hours so that it has enough power to stay on during the entire process otherwise it could be rendered inoperable from the download.
