Garmin 200 W problem

When I try to spell an address that I want to go to, the W on the keyboard doesn't show and instead of showing Y the keyboard shows a Q. So I have no W to use and two Qs.

    I have the same problem with my 200W, except I now have a G instead of W (2 G's). It was okay until about a month ago. I have taken no steps to resolve until now. I'm looking for answers

I bought my Nuvi 200 in Thailand. I also bought an Australian card. How do I get the voice in English instead of Thai. Tom


  • Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol bottom right of the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP) It might take a little trial and error if you don't speak Thai but it should be possible.
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol)
  • Press VOICE (The lips symbol)
This brings you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
Press each in turn and change each to English.

How do you change a garmin 265w to accept US addresses, might will not change to state/ countyt. I live in canada, can't you preprogram the American addresses?


Your unit should be preprogrammed with US addresses as well as Canadian addresses. When entering the address, you should press "Where to?", then "Address". The next screen should show you the province you are in, and the button below that should say, "Spell State/Province". Press this, then enter the US state in which the address you want to navigate to is located, then the rest of the address. Let me know if this helps, or if you are still having trouble.

When you type a stae it will automatically show the list of states you can scroll down to check if the states is in the list or if the states is not recognize try to check the region make sure your in lower 48 states.

Yes, you can enter in a specific address as follows:

Press "Where to"
Press "Address"
Select State

Enter Street

If your Nuvi has acquired a satellite lock, you will then be ready to go.

Keying in street addresses


To find streets that are numerical, not names, enter the address normally to start. Enter the State, City, and House Number. When it asks you to enter the street, look at the bottom of the keyboard. You will see a key marked 123. Press this key, and numbers will show up instead of letters. Type in just the numbers (25 for 25th Avenue, etc.) and hit Done. The street should show as (25th (St., Ave., etc)). Press the correct entry.
