Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver
I'M TRYING TO DOWNLOAD THE FIRST UPDATE AND THE MEMORY SAYS FULL. I ADDED A 1GB SD CARD AND IT STILL WON'T TAKE THE DOWNLOAD. TRIED A HARD REBOOT STILL NOTHING. PLEASE HELP THANKS
The Garmin Nuvi 200w comes with a 1GB solid state drive. The problem lies with the fact that the North American map preloaded with the 200 series is already around 910MB plus the help files and additional languages most of us don't use like Russian, Korean, Japanese etc etc that push it past 980MB or so. Now do the math and you'll find that the 37MB update doesn't fit in there, so you can choose not to update.
You can plug the Nuvi to your PC and explore the Garmin folder and get rid of the Help folder, which will not hinder the operation of the unit but will disable the HELP button when you power up the unit, and you can also remove all the languages you don't use from the Speech and Text folders.
Also when you add a 1GB SD card to the Nuvi, it doesn't add the extra storage to the actual unit. It just allows you to add more maps or pictures to it, but you cannot update the main file in the Solid State Drive by just adding more memory. The main files' name is GMAPPROM.IMG by the way and it's the biggest one at around 900 some MB's. You can just follow my instructions above and you'll be fine, if by any chance you bought another map you could load it up on the 1GB SD card. Except for ALL of Europe because that's 1.4GB if you load up all of it, so I would choose only the countries I know I'd visit.
