Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver
If it hasn'tbeen used it probably has an old set of data for the gps satellites. You may need to do a reset on it. This is in your user manual near the end for this model. I don't have that here but it will involve either pushing a reset button while turning the power on or holding down the screen and the power button or just going ino the menu and selecting reset.
Regardless of which way it does the reset this blows out the old data and then downloads the new one from the satteites. When you do this you want to have the unit charged and running on the charger. You also want to do this with a clear view of the sky to soeed it up. On the 200;s it can take as little as 5 minutes to as much as 45 depending on how many satelittles it sees and so on. Anyway you set it up , plug it in, reset it, and leave it alone utill it downloads an starts up and thats the entire process. After this is down it will now be able to synchronize the time and have a valid data map of the satelitles it should expect to see. When you use the unit more often it updates these as it boots up but if you don;t use it and this info gets outdated it won't be ale to see anything or know where it is.
