It should have come new with some charge on it. There is a 12V to small USB cord that comes with it. The USB port on the device is small and on the back, plug one end of the cable there and insert the other end in a cigarette lighter in auto or truck. As an option you can charge from any USB port on a computer, but you need an optional cable that goes from standard USB to small USB. This is the same cable used on a lot of digital cameras, so you may have one. Just plug it in for a few hours.

I think your battery has failed, you will need to send the GPS back to Garmin for a new battery, the battery is not replaceable by the consumer, it requires special tools, if u don't have them u can destry the GPS

Garmin Nuvi 200 not charging


I also have a Nuvi 200 that didn't charge. The problem is the charging port disconnected from the circuit board. You can disassemble the unit and reconnect the charging port but it takes a small torques wrench and a small screw driver. You will also need a soldering iron preferably with a fine tip and a very steady hand. Good luck.

My garmin nuvi 200 worked fine the first 3 times


Connect your GPS to your computer with the USB cable and this will charge the GPS internal battery. Of course your computer will have to be on during the charging process. After a few hours turn on your GPS and see if it now works. If it now works then go to http://www.garmin.com and register the GPS. While you are on line also download the latest USB drivers for your computer and install them. When you reboot your GPS should be properly connected to the computer for Operating system downloads etc.

Is m Garmin nuvi 200 GPS charging


Merritt, Your Garmin Nuvi does not have a charging indicator similar to say your Cell ph. Simply a battery charge indicator scale. Normal full charge time is approximately 3 to 4 hr. If you looking to ensure your unit is in fact charging Plug in & then remove the connection, Your unit will pop-up a screen to request if you wish to remain on battery power. I hope this helps you.

GARMIN NUVI 200 SAYS NO DETAILED MAPS FOUND THAT SUPPORT ROUTING


You can download new maps..........free......................but..........

I had this problem last year with my garmin 200 and when I called they said that I was out of the 60 day time window for a free map upgrade but they would give it to me anyway. They gave me detailed instructions on how to download a new map free of charge but they didnt explain which selection replaced what I already had on mine.
As a result, I downloaded the wrong maps and have much less detail. Even though its the "2009" version, its less acurate than my old maps were. But its worth a shot, better than paying for them.

Nuvi 200 does not charge all the way only 2 bars at a time


How are you charging it? With the computer? Some computers have a limited amount of current on the USB port. The best way to charge it is with the car adapter or wall charger. if that doesn't work, then you may need a new battery.
