How do i reset my garmin nuvi 200w satnav it says no detailed maps found how can i reinstall them


Locate the reset button, located on the back of the device, in the lower left corner. Remove the sticker covering the button, and use a straightened paper clip to depress the tab.

To reinstall maps

Connect your Garmin Nuvi to your computer via USB cable. You can only update the maps through connecting to your computer.

Open the "myGarmin" website and sign in with your Garmin account. Make sure to sign in with the account that you've purchased the map updates on.

heres a link to the site;


http://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/login.htm.

Click the "myMaps" tab on the myGamrin dashboard. This will load a list of all of your purchased map upgrades.

Click the drop-down menu in the "Recent Map Purchases" section. Select your Garmin Nuvi from the list of devices.

Install the Garmin Communicator Plugin when prompted. This is required in order for the Garmin website to transfer the map files to your Gamrin software on your computer.

Download and install Garmin Express. This is the program that allows your computer to interact with your Garmin Nuvi.

Register your device in Garmin Express. If you haven't already registered your device, you'll be prompted to when you start Garmin Express. You'll need to register in order to update the maps.

Click the "Updates" tab in Garmin Express. This will show all of the available updates for your Nuvi, including the new map update you just purchased.

Click the "Show Details" option next to your Map Update. Click the "Install" button that appears. You will need to accept the agreement before the update installs.

Wait for the maps to download and install. Once you agree to the terms, the map update will begin downloading to Garmin Express, and will then be transferred to your Nuvi. This will likely take several minutes to complete.

Close Garmin Express and unplug the Nuvi when the update is complete. The Nuvi will reboot and begin installing the updated software on the device. This may take another couple of minutes.

If you weren't automatically prompted to install Garmin Express, you can download it from

I have a Garmin Nuvi 255w. I've had it about 2 yrs ago. Had recently gotten message that I needed to update maps, so I went on the website to see how much it would cost. Decided not to update maps,...


Did you try a reset. There is a hard reset button under the sticker at the bottom of the unit. It is located directly under the check mark on the sticker. It will clear out all you favorites etc.. so copy them first if needed. Gently push the reset and it will reboot and ask to confirm and choose yes. See if this works
I will attach Garmins contact info. Thanks for using FixYa.

Free map updates for Garmin c330


Garmin has released new maps. Most of their units are entitled to a free update if the unit was purchased recently Just a heads up to anyone who recently purchased a C330. According to Garmin's tech support, the map udate 2008 is not free to those of us that recently purchased a C330. Only to those who purchased a C340 and up. Their excuse is that it is a "low end" unit, and also that the memory cannot hold the full US maps on the DVD. Gee, I can purchase the update for $69.99 and load a subset of the maps if I want, according to the person in tech support, but I cannot receive it as a free update. So, apparently buyer beware if you purchase Garmin's "low end" units. You will apparently not be able to receive a free update of maps, even if the unit you buy is already out of date.

Steve,

It's so easy to become dependent on this technology isn't it?

If you have access to a computer and the right cables to link your Garmin, try this:

Go to www.garmin.com

They will have a web page dedicated to whatever model you have.

Once you have found that page look for a box in the upper left hand corner that has some links in it.

One of the links will be labeled something like "downloads and updates"

Click on that link and download the most recent software update.

If you're not comfortable with computers, try taking the GPS to West Marine. They have stores all over Florida and most of them will have some tech type guy that can download the update for you. Also you could probably get it done at the Geek Squad desk at Best Buy.

If updating the software doesn't solve the problem then there is probably something wrong with the hardware, and it would have to be sent to Garmin for repair. They recently told me the flat rate to repair my streetpilot 550 was $250.

Saving Favorites before updating Garmin c340


Use MapSource to transfer the Waypoints from the unit to your PC. If you lose them, you can then transfer them back. (I updated a C330 from 4.40 to 6.10 and did NOT lose them, however.)
