Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver
I charged my Garmin nuvi 200 in my truck for a couple hours. it was working all day. and when i plugged it in it said "battery charging" so i know it was working but when i took it out i couldnt get it to turn back on. iv tried holding the slide button for several seconds. what can i do? i bought it from my buddy and it was brand new. all that came with it was the car charger. please help me
Our Garmin didn't turn on. We unplugged it, pushed the reset button on the bottom and then plugged it in again and it WORKED

Tried everything subscribed on many of the GPS sites, including the reset button. It was only THIS thread which describes the MANNER in which the reset button must be pushed, that does the trick.
Your finger is NOT ENOUGH to fully depress the reset button. I used the corner of the small end of the USB connector to depress it AFTER disconnecting it from the unit. Nothing happenend when I released the reset button, but when I plugged it back into the laptop via the USB cable, it turned on automatically.

I have the garmin nuvi 200. It won't turn on. I disconnected it from the external power source, then pressed the reset button, but itstill won't come on. I didn't throw it up against the wall yet but I'm getting close.

Did you try resetting the unit?
1. Disconnect the nuvi from external power
2. Press the RESET button on the bottom of the unit
3. Connect the nuvi to a power source
