Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS
My 200W has no port that could be used for downloading updates. The only port on the body is where you plug in your power cord.Questions:
#1: Where can I find North America updates for my 200W?
#2. How do you download any updates and import them into the 200W?
I am asking these questions even though I have only had my 200W for about three weeks, because I have had several occassions where the unit could not locate the destination I was looking for.
On the 200w the power slot is actually a mini usb port that you can use to plug into your computer to charge and install updates. Start HERE for some basic information and links to the manual. You will also need to purchase a usb cable if you do not have one that works. Click HERE for an inexpensive cable I have ordered for my clients.
To download the updating software click HERE Once you have downloaded and installed the software open it up and plug in the gps unit and the software should automatically recognize it. Click next and it will look for firmware updates (note: not map updates)
For map updates you must enter the serial number off your 200w HERE.
If you have any more questions let me know. Please rate me well if this has helped you.
