Windows XP is a very old system in computer years. You should probably try using on another computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows 10. If you check the Garmin website it will most likely support what I have described.

The Nuvi 200W is NOT Bluetooth capable, I'm sorry to say. Therefore, there is no option to find.

With access to the internet go to the Garmin website. http://www8.garmin.com/updatemaps/

If you have a newer GPS you might be eligible for a free map update(if not go to next paragraph). If so there is an icon where it says "free" that when you click on it, it will ask you to type in the serial number which is on the bottom of your GPS. This will lead you step by step through the process which will involve you to create an account with Garmin and also registering your product. You may also want to update your software as well which you will find on your "Dashboard" when you have your account through Garmin.

If it is past 60 days since your purchase of your GPS you will need to purchase your map updates. At the website in the beginning of this post you may select either one update or a lifetime map update. Select the one you wish to choose. Then choose the map you want to update and go through purchasing your map. You may be asked if you want a disk update or a download. The download is the easiest and updates it right away but don't use this if you have dial-up. You will be takes through the process on how to update your maps which will include creating an account through Garmin if you don't have one and registering your GPS. It will walk you through these steps. Conact me if you have questions

I know I've tried. You either live with the old map or but the latest version.
I bought the life time maps updates and I'm glad I did.
I've updated my maps at least 6 times.
New maps are about $70.
Life time maps are about $99 (when I bought mine)
BUT FIRST make SURE you have the latest software in YOUR computer and in YOUR Garmin before you load any maps.
You can get that FREE at Garmin here:


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.


Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

Map updates are free for units which are recently sold with the older maps and the new maps have been published, ie you just bought a unit in 2009 which still had 2008 maps on it after the 2009 maps had been released. Rather than recall all the units from the store shelves, they offer free updates on the mapping software. Continually updating the maps on 18 month old units is not free, there is an update charge. What is free from Garmin is the unit's software. Hope this clarifies your assumption.

it was on the box it came in, it is also on a sticker on the bottom of the GPS unless someone peeled it off. it is a number with a bar code

Hello,

To update your garmin nuvi, get it connected to your computer, back up the maps that are on it, then go to the main garmin nuvi's site to check out for latest updates, then update it.

It will be updated immediately, then you can reinstall the maps back on it. And your nuvi would be updated.

Take care

sorry to have troubled you while i was out driving camera alerts started working again thanks anyhow.

Garmin nuvi 200W... | Answered on Apr 11, 2016


The original message of "No detailed maps to support routing" is typically caused by a missing or corrupted map file. It can also be caused by not having the proper map unlock key installed on the unit.

If that problem has been resolved and you can't obtain an address when setting a route, make sure that the map is turned on.

Go to settings, select the map icon and then the map info button. Make sure there is a check mark in the square next to the text that lists the map that you have installed on the unit.

If the map info button is grayed out, then you still have a map issue.

If the square does not have a check mark in it, press the square to place a check mark in the square. This will activate the map.

With this unit, you can put several maps on it and you can select which map will be active or inactive with the check mark.

Often caused by a loose USB port where the pins have broken away from the printed circuit board. See this page for more info:

I had the same problem being in Brussels, but I do not think it was due to settings. Rather the fact that the gps has cash machine POI only for UK.

To download aditional POIs into garmin, you'd need the POI Loader: http://www8.garmin.com/products/poiloader/

On the same page you may find "POI Sources" link. Maybe there is some POI list for Spanish cash machines... I'd try http://www.gps-waypoints.net/gps/
