Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver
I'm trying to download the 2009 map and it's telling me i dont have enough memory. It comes with 105 mb and the map is only 37 mb. Why wouldn't it work? I just bought this yesterday.
Teamhs, I am assuming you have the Garmin Nuvi 200w or 200 which comes with a 1GB solid state drive. If so, 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 now you have 2 choices.
1.- You can choose not to update.
2.- 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. I removed all but American English and Spanish along with the help folder and was able to succesfully update my Nuvi. Now whenever I press the Help button in my Nuvi all I get is NO MATCH FOUND, which is no biggie to me. Hope this helps...
