How to install Garage cars into my Garmin nuvi 200w?

I've tried the little cheat sheet they have on the Garmin site but it doesnt work because I did not get a usb connection with mine. is this something i have to buy seperately? my friend who already has this just uses a memory card to put in the cars he downloads. I tried this but it hasnt worked. If you guys have other suggestions then it would truly make me happy. Thanks!

YES YOU NEED A usb MINI CORD 2.0 . iF YOU GO TO ANY STORE WHERE THEY SELL COMPUTERS THEY WILL HAVE IT JUST BRING YOUR GARMIN UNIT SO THEY CAN SEE THE TYPE PLUG YOU NEED. iT ALSO WORKS AS A CHARGER IF IT IS PLUGED INTO YOUR COMPUTER.
AFTER YOU HAVE THE CORD JUST PLUG INTO A USB PORT AND GOT TO THE GARMIN SITE. . THERE YOU CAN DOWN LOAD THE CARS FOR FREE iF YOU JUST PURCHASED YOUR GARMIN 200w THEN REGISTER IT THERE AND YOU WILL GET A FREE UP DATE TO THE MAPS . FREE FOR THE FIRST 90 DAYS. AFTER YOU REGISTER.
fyi IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO DOWN LOAD THE UPDATE. ABOUT 4HR ! THEN ANOTHER 1.5 HRS TO PUT IT INTO THE GARMIN UNIT.

My Garmin Nuvi 200W, when I turn it on sometimes it failed and after few hours when I tried again sometimes it works


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.

I have Garmin Nuvi 200W that I'd like to add Australian Maps to.


You can purchase maps for download at https://buy.garmin.com/shop/buymaps.do?null&ra=true. Garmin does sell the maps for Australia at that site.

There are other maps available from third parties which are compatible but you'd have to confirm that from the seller.

Hi,
You will have to buy a version of European maps. After you download them into your Garmin it will work just like in the US.
Here is a link I found for you. It looks like you need to buy all of Europe but there may be a way to just buy individual countries. Best wishes on your trip.

Garmin nuvi 200w screen keeps going off when select state


I would first connect the GPS to the computer and use the Webupdater program at Garmin.com to update all the software on the GPS. If that doesn't fix your problem you will need to contact Garmin. They have a program where they repair or replace GPS system for a flat fee. It seems to a very reasonalble price also.
