If you are not connected to a computer, there may be a small pin hole on the back of your unit marked RESET. Try that first and see if that doesn't help. Next call Garmin.

Nuvi 200w constantly turns on and off


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.

Garmin Nuvi 200 not charging


I also have a Nuvi 200 that didn't charge. The problem is the charging port disconnected from the circuit board. You can disassemble the unit and reconnect the charging port but it takes a small torques wrench and a small screw driver. You will also need a soldering iron preferably with a fine tip and a very steady hand. Good luck.

Unit goes into computer mode when I plug in the car charger lead. I go through the 'loading maps' screen, then the PIN screen, and it defaults to computer mode and I can't get any maps to show.


The rear mini-USB port is defective, making the unit think its connected to a PC. The port needs to be resoldered or replaced. Please see this link:

See the section about the PC icon.

WHAT IS SD CARD FOR??


Hello TRICOUNTY,

Your Garmin GPS has an SD card slot. You can use this slot to insert a removeable SD memory card into the unit SD memory cards for used for storage by many portable devices. The most common useage for the GPS is to view pictures taken by a digital camera (which also uses an SD card) with the GPS's picture viewer function.

I am not sure what the ads you are referring to are. Where are you seeing the ads? On the GPS screen? After inserting a SD card into the GPS?

Best Regards,
Ken

I had this problem. I discovered that I was using the wrong lead in the car. The problem resolved itself when I used the lead that came with it.
