Can you tell me where I can get directions on how to work the garnin nuvi 200w gps

The manual for the 200W is no longer available as the satnav has been replaced by the 205. However the 205 is almost identical and the manual for the 205 has instructions that will allow you to operate the 200W. You can get the 205 manual at

My nuvi 200w had voice yesterday, but today won't talk to me. I have the mute box unchecked and have also tried it in the checked position as well. No luck. Roger

Try changing the announcer's voice first to see if you have any sound. To do this tap TOOLS - SETTINGS - LANGUAGE on your main screen.

Try a couple of different voices. Select ones that end in TTS (Text-To-Speech)

If you still do not have any sound, check again that the mute box is not checked and increase the volume to 100%.

If that doesn't do it, reset the unit to factory default settings.

Late response on turn-by-turn voice directions- garmin nuvi 760

Hi, my 760 had the same problem, and a stutter when speaking street names. I fixed both by upgrading the software to v4.60 using the Garmin Webupdater.

Garmin 760 - No Voice Directions

Go back into your tools and settings and re select the voice of american jack and see if it comes back on.
I lost the voice 2 days ago while on a trip from tenn. to florida and this fixed it. we never shut off the voice but somehow while using bluetooth or FM trans it shut off voice transmiting.

Deleted voice

Hello Sallilou,

If you deleted the voice files without backing them up you can try running the Garmin WebUpdater software. This program updates the operating software for your GPS and can be used to update maps and other files. It may be possible to reinstall the voice files using WebUpdater. (To download the WebUpdater software go here.)

Some of the Garmin products do have voice files available for download via the Garmin website. (Namely the Quest product.) However the Nuvi 200W does not appear to have such files immediately available for download.

If you aren't able to update the voice files this way I would suggest you give Garmin a call directly.

Best Regards,
"Go Ahead. Use Us."
