Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver
****HELPFUL HINT**** Before you do anything with the Garmin unit, you might want to make a folder somewhere on your computer and name it something like NUVI CONTENTS. Then copy and paste or drag and drop, however you want to do it, all the contents of your NUVI. This way if you do something you didn't mean to, like delete a language, you can just put it back in.
Now what you need to look for are 3 folders, one is the HELP folder which is pretty useless once you get the hang of the Garmin unit. As a matter of fact I never even used the HELP button on the Garmin unit, because it's so easy to use.
The other folder is the VOICE folder, open it and start deleting the languages you are not likely to use or need. Make sure you DO NOT delete American English, unless you want to stick to British English. Of course I am assuming you need English, but regardless it goes for whichever language you want to keep. Assuming you are keeping American English these are the names of the files you need to keep in the VOICE folder english_american_.sum and English_American_.vpm.
The last folder is the TEXT folder, open it and delete all the files if you want. American English is the default so it won't go away, but regardless you'll have a back up anyways...RIGHT? LOL
I hope this helps you, and if you have any questions lay them on and I'll see what I can do for you. But I will say that I just bought my Nuvi back in April of this year so I am still learning a lot about it. I am working on tweaking the XML file so that it will ready more than 1 map on the SD, right now we are limited to 1 map per SD card.
