Make sure you set up your time zone correctly. That is what decides on day/night setting

Nuvi 205w screen won't light- any ideas? it's brand new and fully charged. I can tell it's on, because it generates sounds when I touch the screen.


If you can't see anything then it is a hardware issue. Return for replacement as soon as possible.

If you can see faint images in the background then your screen is just too dim. You will have to try to navigate the dim screen to the settings menu. Click on the Tools icon, bottom right of main screen. Click on "settings" then "display". Select brightness and adjust.

One other suggestion is try an update. Plug the unit into your PC and run garmin webupdater. Once done the screen may light up but its a long shot. Here is the webupdater link.

Nuvi 200 displays Garmin screen but does nothing else. Why? It does not change the screen at all. It has't been used very much.


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

I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200W.

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.
