Garmin NUVI 200w

My Garmin was working fine, have had it about 6 months. Tried to turn it on a couple days ago, no luck. Charger is fine. I tried the reset, still nothing. Last night i went and plugged it back in for the hell of it and it came on and worked fine. This morning went to leave on my trip and it wont come on again. Help!! Any suggestions?

    Had my Garmin NUVI 200 for a few months, & the on/off switch on the top doesn't do anything now. It just slides back and forth. Unit works fine when I plug it into the car power source. But, can't operate it on it's own batttery power. Since I use it in "the field" now and then, its hard to carry a 12 vote battery source around. Can this switch be repaired?

Garmin Nuvi 200 - pic if a sat nat connected to computer whenever I charge to the cig lighter? It had been fine for 6 months now recently come up. Do I need an upgrade or new charger?


I recommend the update, since it is the free alternative of these choices.

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.

Can not turn on my GPS Garmin nuvi 760


Can you try the direct to outlet charger? If you dont have one can you try a different charger? If that does not work then that means that the unit might be defective. Contact Garmin at 1-800-800-1020

Streets not visible on Garmin 200w


First try this: I believe simply pushing the reset button will fix your problem. The reset is located under the frame around the screen. To remove the frame, use your finger nail to carefully lift it off the screen. Then just push the reset button and you should be back in business.

please rate my answer as a fixya! Thanks.

How to install Garage cars into my Garmin nuvi 200w?


YES YOU NEED A usb MINI CORD 2.0 . iF YOU GO TO ANY STORE WHERE THEY SELL COMPUTERS THEY WILL HAVE IT JUST BRING YOUR GARMIN UNIT SO THEY CAN SEE THE TYPE PLUG YOU NEED. iT ALSO WORKS AS A CHARGER IF IT IS PLUGED INTO YOUR COMPUTER.
AFTER YOU HAVE THE CORD JUST PLUG INTO A USB PORT AND GOT TO THE GARMIN SITE. . THERE YOU CAN DOWN LOAD THE CARS FOR FREE iF YOU JUST PURCHASED YOUR GARMIN 200w THEN REGISTER IT THERE AND YOU WILL GET A FREE UP DATE TO THE MAPS . FREE FOR THE FIRST 90 DAYS. AFTER YOU REGISTER.
fyi IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO DOWN LOAD THE UPDATE. ABOUT 4HR ! THEN ANOTHER 1.5 HRS TO PUT IT INTO THE GARMIN UNIT.
