Question about Garmin GPS

Open Question

I´m having a problem with my 8 months old Garmin Ni=uvo 200w. It was working normally and suddenly I´m not able to reach the keyboard. If I try to find a new location by typing the address, I´m able to go to main menu choose address, choose the State and after I choose type the city nay the device goes off. I´m also not able to retrive the favorites that was stored. Looks like I´ve lost all the stored information. Someone can help? Thank you in advance. Paulo Iijima Scarsdale NY 914 355 8996

Check to make sure your maps are checked off. Go to settings, Map1.gif, then press Map Info at the bottom of the screen. Make sure City Navigator North America NT v8 has a check mark on it.

Did you try to perform a map upgrade to 2008? Turn on the Garmin and from the main menu touch the wrench, then press Map, then look for Map info.

Your Nuvi has suffered the firmware or system software equivalent of a stroke.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi running like new:

  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Streets not visible on Garmin 200w


First try this: I believe simply pushing the reset button will fix your problem. The reset is located under the frame around the screen. To remove the frame, use your finger nail to carefully lift it off the screen. Then just push the reset button and you should be back in business.

please rate my answer as a fixya! Thanks.

Missing letters from my alphabet


You will most likely need a firmware upgrade from this website to fix the problem: http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
It will walk you through the steps and your letters should be back to normal after the update.

How do I get the garmin 200W to communicate with me in English.


1. Press the icon with the wrench (tools menu button) on the main screen
2. Top left icon that looks like 2 gears is the Settings menu, press this
3. The menu items are System, Display, Navigation, Time, Language. So the 5th menu item down ... select this item.
4. You should then have 3 things to set, they are Voice, Text, Keyboard. When you press the buttons to the right of each of these 3 items you can select the language. The second language offered should be American English. Or if you don't want to set these 3 options, you can select the button at the bottom right. It is the "Restore" button and if you were in English it would say "Restore".

Hope that helps.
