Nuvi routes to destination are too long

My nuvi 200 takes scenic routes to get me to my destinations. a ride that should not take more than 1 hour, will take me almost twice as long. What can I do? At this pint, I'd rather use mapquest

Perhaps it is set to Pedestrian Mode instead of Automobile Mode.  This can be changed in the settings.

I don't want to go the route the thing picks. I want to go via a different town. How do i make it do it?


When you input the destination let it pick the route. Then, without cancelling the route it selects, again press WHERE TO and put in the town you want to go via. When you press GO it will ask you is this a "new destination" or a "via destination". Select "Via" and it will guide you through that town.

I CAN'T GET MY GARMIN TO SHOW THE COMPLETE ROUTE MAP IT WILL ONLY GIVE ME DESTINATION OR HOME POINT


When you select your destination, before you select go there is an option for map at the bottom of the screen. That will show you the entire route.

Nuvi 200 screen freeze


Freezing up is a sign that the system software or firmware of your Nuvi has become corrupt.

I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200W.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

I am trying to put in multiple destinations for the same trip. When I try to put in my second destination it keeps going back to my home site not my first destination. It starts the trip for my second...


The Nuvi you have does not support multiple destinations in a route. you can have 1 destination and 1 via point. So if you are going to a destination and you need to add a stop in the route, you can add the 2nd point to go to and then continue to the original destination.

Garmin nuvi 200 route calculation problem


Sounds like a major software failure. . .

Hold a finger on the upper right corner of the screen while powering up the unit. This should do a master reset.

The go here to download an update.
