To use the extra SDCARD storage for your map should work. It's a bit of a complicated area to pull this through and requires quite a bit of reading to get it done.
Basically the install can be done from a PC / Mac with the Garmin Maps installed on there. From the Mac/PC it's installed on the SDCARD in your NUVI.
Below you find the link to Garmin's forum - read the posting where it says "Reply from Garmin International". It contains a PDF with all instructions in there. Register at Garmin's forum to download the PDF - this is the same Username/Password as used with registering the Nuvi at Mygarmin.com.
Important note about maps: Due to our high volume of sales, every Garmin portable GPS navigator sold by Amazon.com will come with the most recent map version. The current map provides data through April 1, 2007. If you purchased a Garmin GPS before April 1, 2007, you can purchase a map update on SD card. We will notify customers who purchase from Amazon.com via e-mail whenever new map updates become available.
Unfortunately the garmin 200W, like most of the garmin satnavs, doesn't have much storage space so you should be given the option to download part of the map only to your satnav. To get the full map the only option is to download the map to your computer. When you go to download the map from the garmin website select OPTIONS. In the options menu select download to computer. This installs a program called Mapinstall on your computer which contains the map. If you need to use more of the map you can then either replace the part installed on your satnav by running the mapinstall program from your computer or install it to an SD card. Note however that while garmin say that nuvi satnavs support SD cards up to 16 Gb some cards don't seem to work in them. Before spending all the time it takes to put your map on the card test it in your satnav first by putting music or pictures on it to see if it works
you will need to erase a file from the units memory. Connect your
GPS system to your computer; go to start then ‘My Computer’, and double
click on your device file (mass storage system), there you will see a
folder named ‘Garmin’.
In this folder are several different files, look for file named
gmapsupp.img. Right hand click on this file and delete as this file is
causing the maps to lock.
Try using a different website where you can download the maps for free. These should work. If they don't, you might need a software update from the same web site before getting more maps: www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00401-20
Did you tried to update your Maps? There are two maps inside your Garmin. Basemap which covers all highways and major roads and mapsource source which cover regular streets. Try reloading mapsource maps.
From the "Where to" menu select the little wrench and then select map and then select Map info. What does it say for Map Info?
If the unit is still under warranty, call Garmin and get a RMA. Return the unit to Garmin.
There are two type of maps in the unit. There is the basemap which shows the states and major highway and roads and then there is the actual Mapsource maps which shows the streets. If you go to Mapinfo and it doesn't show anything, then Mapsource maps are missing.
With the 2610 you can use a card reader for the Compact Flash Memory card to load the maps. This is much faster since the card reader is USB 2.0 while the Garmin USB is 1.1 Under device look for the drive letter which correspond to the Campact Flash card.
