Not hard to do at all, you have two choices for that. Although one is a long shot by now.

Your first choice is that you could register your Nuvi with Garmin if you haven't already and see if they'd still let you qualify for a free update. More than likely not, but it's worth a shot.

The second choice is to buy the map update and insert the DVD into your computer and let the Update Wizard walk you thru it. It's actually pretty simple, but I will warn you that you'll probably won't have enough space to do the update so you'll have to delete some files you don't need anymore. Click on this to find out how to do that...

Use the Garmin Express program from Garmin. Down load and install the program, then connect your GPS to your PC. The program will allow you to install map and software updates.

Yes, Garmin satnavs use Navteq maps. Go to www.Navteq.com and there's a link there called Map Reporter where they take reports of map changes. I have reported several in the past and eventually they all appeared on map updates.

Have accidently wiped mapping from garmin sat nav


I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200.

The error message you are receiving about maps is actually a sign of a firmware corruption problem, which just happens from time to time with electronic devices. Updating the firmware of your nuvi will replace the corrupt firmware.

These are the steps to take to update your Nuvi 200:

Download and then run Garmin 200 WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software. Occasionally a nuvi 200 will also need a Hard Reset (preceded by a favorites backup) to bring it back to 100% operation.


I hope that helps.

Can i download free maps for my 2year old garminnuvi200 satnav and from which site


You can update mapping software on most sat nav units to take into account alterations to the road network. Either from your PC, in the case of portable sat navs; or via your phones GPRS connection, in the case of phone models. Always check the level of mapping that comes with your equipment in the first place. Is it up-to-date?
. Every couple of years Garmin will release a map update, which you can get on DVD or download - you've got to pay for it though!

I HAVE A GARMIN NUVI 200 AND IT NEEDS TO HAVE THE MAPS UPDATED. IT IS 18 MONTHS OLD AND I CAN'T FIND A FREE DOWNLOAD FOR IT.


Map updates are free for units which are recently sold with the older maps and the new maps have been published, ie you just bought a unit in 2009 which still had 2008 maps on it after the 2009 maps had been released. Rather than recall all the units from the store shelves, they offer free updates on the mapping software. Continually updating the maps on 18 month old units is not free, there is an update charge. What is free from Garmin is the unit's software. Hope this clarifies your assumption.
