Changing settings on the device will not fix the problem. The problem is either:

1. The GPS is defective.
2. The GPS is not in a line of sight with the GPS satellites. This can be fixed by re-positioning the unit in your vehicle. You can also take the vehicle out of the car and let it find the satellites and then put it back in your vehicle. If reception is blocked in your vehicle, that won't help, but if reception is just iffy, then it will.

SOURCE: nuvi 200W GPS Receiver: how to unlock garmin 200w...

You can't. You have to send it to Garmin with original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer and they will unlock it. This security feature cannot be bypassed and there is no master unlock PIN.
