If you are a bit technical, copy the contents of the card to a folder on a PC. Plug in the Garmin. It should assign a drive letter to your unit. Open that drive letter and navigate to the folder GARMIN. copy the contents from the card to this location. There should be a file called gmapprom.img. You need that file as that's your map file.

Take note that it may take considerable time for it to copy it to the Garmin.

Garmin nuvi 1390t won't read or recognize microsd


The 1390t works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it will not work in older devices.
You need to go with microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

How do i upgrade my garmin nuvi 200 gps? (never been upgraded


Hello,

Download and install the Garmin commuicator plugin to your computer
http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator/
This will allow the nuvi to transfer data back and forth to Garmin's server.
Connect your nuvi to your computer and run the Garmin WebUpdater to update the software on the nuvi.
Download and Install WebUpdater.
To update the mapping, you will need to purchase a map update subscription.
https://my.garmin.com/maps/chooseDeviceType.htm?
Once the subscription is activated and registered to the nuvi, follow the download instructions to download the map. This will usually take from 3 to 4 hours or more depending on your internet download speed.
The nuvi 200 is a discontinued model and you may want to consider upgrading to a new GPS as a new nuvi with lifetime mapping can be purchased for about $150.00.

I bought my Nuvi 200 in Thailand. I also bought an Australian card. How do I get the voice in English instead of Thai. Tom


  • Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol bottom right of the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP) It might take a little trial and error if you don't speak Thai but it should be possible.
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol)
  • Press VOICE (The lips symbol)
This brings you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
Press each in turn and change each to English.

Whenever I turn on my Nuvi 200 it shows the mass storage mode icon and will not display maps. How do I get rid of this problem?


With a Nuvi, If a Garmin or Garmin compatible power cord is not used, GPS will stay on the USB Mass Storage mode and will not go to Map Screen even though connector fits fine. In this case GPS can slowly charge. So, you need to find/obtain a power supply that works right.

I just bought my Garmin Nuvi 200 and just stays black screen?


My Garmin 200 did the same on two occasions. On the bottom to the left of the serial number is a tiny reset button. Press that using a pencil point and all will be reset. And you don't lose any map data, so don't worry!

Cannot start to work


There are two work arounds. If you can copy the data from the card via a card reader, save it to the desktop of a computer. Plug in your garmin to the USB. Transfer the card data to the Garmin folder which should have come up when you plugged in your garmin.

Map


The Nuvi 350 does have an SD cart slot in the side, which will allow you to purchase maps of other countries on an SD card, and use them in your unit. Garmin has a list of available maps for purchase on their web site.
