I just had the same problem and I might have fixed it. Erase all your memory and initiallize the unit as if for the first time. Also make sure your batteries are OK and at least 50% full.

Updating your firmware will not correct that problem. I think your maps may be out of date and does not know what to do. I don't know how long you have had your unit but if its under a year old Im pretty sure your entitled to free updates for your maps. If it over a year old then you need to go to www.garmin.com and purchase new updated maps.

I hope this helps you out if it does please click YES on the web page that you are receiving this response on. Thank you

Product nuvi 200w/ powering up the device, all that is displayed is a small picture of a gps connected to a pc via usb cord. Have the update card for last year. A message displayed recently that map was...


The reason that the picture of the gps connected to a pc is shown is because the mini usb plug is not pushed in fully into the back of the satnav. This is a common problem with the 200w as it feels like the plug is fully in when it's not.
When the map is on the satnav for a year it displays the message that it's out of date. It can be updated again at www.garmin.com but if it was updated last year it may not be worth the cost of updating it again as there will be few changes. Generally I update mine every 2 years.

No data available and no maps downloaded


it may just be that the maps are deselected. to correct this go into the tools/settings/map and then at the bottom of the screen in the middle you will see map info tap that and then at the next screen it will show you the maps which are installed if there are any without ticks just tap the box. tap ok and try again if. if there are no map choices then you will need to reinstall the maps on your unit

I was in Tyler Tx. and could not pull up an address. A couple of days earlier I had a message show up that said something about I needed to update. Not sure what that means or how to go about it. ...


How long has it been since you've updated the maps on the unit? You may have gotten a message stating your maps were over a year old, and recommending you update them. The address in Tyler may have been too new for the unit if the maps have not been updated recently also. If this is not the case, you should be aware that some addresses may show as being in a different city due to ZIP code status. For instance, you may know an address to be in a certain town/city, but it may show as being in a neighboring town in the unit as they share a ZIP code. If you cannot find an address in your GPS, go back to the beginning and re-enter the address. When it comes to the city, however, try, "Search All". See if this helps.

I wa in Vancouver, and there is a new bridge that opened in june of this year. Why would the GPS not able to find it and derrect us to it, instead it was telling us to go take a ferry which is no longer...


Area maps are not drawn up every year. There is easily a several year gap before mappers get back to any given area to map any new changes since the last mapping. If that bridge was just opened, mappers wouldn't have had a chance to add it to maps, allowing it to be added to the map software so you could update your gps device. Basically, the bridge was too new for your gps to know about it's existence yet.

There may be a setting somewhere to define your 'home' position. It will probably default to this location as standard until you find the setting and reset it to your own postcode/home address

You need to go outside with a clear view of the sky and get a satellite fix with the unit turned on (usually a couple of minutes), Then the maps will show your current position. By entering your address you are trying to create a route from current position to your destination. By default the current position is set for Kansas (Garmin US office), but once you have locked onto the satellite your current postion will be the last position before the unit was turned off.

Starting system cold, no sound for 2-3 minutes


Its not worth having it looked at. $100.00 for a new 400.00 unit? My unit is doing the same thing. Turn it on and 2 to 5 minutes later it may come on. Change to video 3 4 5 etc it stop again. Only works with a cold start. Something in the unit has failed and is heat related. My original Kenwood 20/20 recevier still works. Must be 40 years old. New products just last 5 to ten years max if your lucky.
