My Garmin turns on for about one minute, then the screen goes black.

Hello :

I recommend you to reset your device .

Follow these steps for resetting :

1:Turn the Nuvi on.

2:Touch the tools icon on the main screen. The tools icon is represented by a wrench surrounded by a blue circle.

3:Touch the "Settings" icon which appears as a wrench.

4:Push the "Restore" button at the bottom of the screen. A confirmation message will appear asking to confirm restoring the Nuvi to factory settings. Push yes to restore the factory settings
Try this for hard reset .

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen [ Don't let go ] , and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press “Yes” to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

Did you set a "home" point? If you did, drive to that point, and it should unlock. You can then change your password to something you remember. :-) If not, you can send it to Garmin, along with proof of purchase, and they will unlock it for you.

I have Garmin Nuvi 200W that I'd like to add Australian Maps to.

You can purchase maps for download at Garmin does sell the maps for Australia at that site.

There are other maps available from third parties which are compatible but you'd have to confirm that from the seller.

If you forgot your password, Garmin lock has an option to unlock it by going to the location the password was set. This is called security location, usually your home or the drive way.

All of my Nuvi 200 settings (recently accessed, favorites, etc.) suddenly disappeared. When I entered a new destination address, however, it still worked. What would erase my previous settings?

I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200W.

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:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Nuvi 200 series manuals available here.

Innacurate Garmin Nuvi

The accuracy of your garmin is actually good. The accuracy is only as good as the accuracy of the addresses that Garmin got from every municipality.

You can not recalibrate the unit but you can reset the "home" setting by parking exactly where you want to call home and then setting that location as home.

Please rate my answer as a FixYa! Thanks

Question: Why will my nüvi 2xx not find satellite signals?
p>If your nuvi 2xx is not acquiring satellite signals, you may need to download and run our WebUpdater program.

Go to:

If you are still having issues after updating the software on your unit, you may need to do a full master reset. Please note that a master reset erases Favorites and waypoints. Before proceeding, you may want to back up information you want to keep.

To do a full master reset to the nuvi 200 series unit:

1. Turn off the device.
2. Place your fingertip or the eraser end of a pencil in the bottom right corner of the touchscreen.
3. Apply pressure in the bottom right corner of the screen.
4. While pressing down on the screen, power on the unit and continue pressing on the screen. A message displays to confirm that you really want to delete all user data.
5. Touch Yes.
6. Your unit restarts automatically. You must go through the set up procedure again.

Once you complete the reset, place the nuvi unit outside where it has a clear unobstructed view of the sky for 15-30 minutes. Keep it in a stationary position until it reacquires satellites.
