Go to:

Or, if this doesn´t work, go to, click on "support", click on "legacy products" (left) and click on "eXplorist 210 Europe" (do NOT click on "eXplorist 210 North America")

On this page click under Updates/Upgrades on "version 2.57", and follow the instructions. You will have to register your GPS; register under a european country and it will work out fine.

After you have installed the firmware you will have the basemap and some new windows on the GPS. Good luck and enjoy!

Can we download European maps onto our Garmin 200W for travelling with motorhome

If you bought the satnav in the USA it won't work in Europe. If you bought it in Europe you can download the maps but the full map of Europe won't fit on it. You can fit Western Europe or add and remove countries as you need them. It's probably not a satisfactory solution when traveling with a motor home. You can put the map on an SD card but the nuvi 200W has problems reading maps from SD cards of 2 Gb or more. The map of Europe would take a 4 Gb card to hold it all.

You would probably be better to buy a cheap satnav of Europe. You can get them from
if you want to buy on line or Halfords shops if you prefer to deal with someone face to face. Some of them cost less than €100 and would be near the same price as buying the map of Europe.

Or if you want a satnav that covers both the USA and Europe and will work in both the Garmin nuvi 1370 or the 2370 would do the job but costs a bit more.

I hope this answers your question.

Europe maps microSD card problems

You didn't mention where you live. If you live in the US and you have the SD card with the Europe maps plugged in, it's going to grab the Europe map first. Try going into set-up by clicking on the wrench symbol, then the maps symbol and then "map info". You should see your original map and the europe map. uncheck the europe map to get back your original map. This screen allows you to toggle between both maps.
