Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Nuvi turns off after loading maps

A friends of mine is having trouble with his new Garmin nuvi 200w.

He had used it today and it worked fine for a while but after turning it back on it goes off again after the loading maps dialogue at the bottom of the screen.

Is this a software problem or the batteries?

I'd be grateful for any assistance.

    Same problem today with a nuvi 360.



    In addition to power, also wondering if it might be a firmware issue?

    Mine does it too when the battery is very low.  Battery drains awfully fast.

    Nuvi 200w turn off after loading maps, i try to reset it an still the same.

    I have a Garmin Nuvi 265WT with the same problem where you would turn the unit on and all that would happen is the Garmin message would come up followed by the screen picture you selected then it would shut down. It seems as though the unit does not boot up. Even with the USB cable plugged in I still cannot get the Garmin to come up. I had the unit for about a month now and it worked great until it decided to stop working right in the middle of a route. I placed a call to Garmin and the tech assistant was helpful with the RMA but I have to admit I am a little flustered with this experience. I was careful with the unit and I hope Garmin has better reliability with their commercial avionic product line. If it happens again with the replacement unit, Garmin will not like me that is for sure.

Your Nuvi has suffered the firmware or system software equivalent of a stroke.

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.

When garmin 200 is turned on it says it is loading maps and after you hit the agree button it says"no detailed maps found that support routing. the nuvi cannont be used without them".


Not being able to start up is a sign that the system software or firmware of your Nuvi has become corrupt.

No Maps on My GARMIN nuvi 200W


I bought the nuvi 200w and when I registered the unit it said that there was an updated map available so I down loaded and installed it. When I turned the unit on, it said no detailed maps available and would not work. I called garmin and they said that to fix it I had to hook the nuvi up to my computer and start>my computer>nuvi>garmin there is a file called gmapprom.img (shows over 1,000,000 mb) delete this file. Open all programs>garmin>mapsource highlight the areas on the map that you want and click on the add to device icon. After doing this, my nuvi is working fine. The explanation was that the original file had files for Canada that were not unlocked. Try this and good luck!

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.

No data available mess


Did you try to perform a map upgrade to 2008? Turn on the Garmin and from the main menu touch the wrench, then press Map, then look for Map info.

Garmin is stuck at loading maps


I had a 200 W Nuvi with the same problem. Luckily it happened with the first 3 months, so i could return it to Garmin under warranty for a free replacement
