The 2008 vintage 200s only had enough room on them to fit the continental US internally whereas the 250 could fit all of North America. Since the 2010 maps, there has not been enough room, even by deleting unused language files, to load the entire continental US internally on a 200.

I have all of North America on my 2008 vintage 200W, but I have to load Canada, Mexico, Alaska, and the states of Washington, Oregon, and California on the SD card in order to get the whole thing to fit. I forgot to mention that I have other maps loaded on there as well... Lakes with Fishing Hot Spots - Americas Bluechart v5 - GPSMAP 162 Tide Points - osm map - usa - NE USA Topo Part(s) 1 & 3 - Ibycus USA2 - Ibycus USA Two quick questions: 1. The fact you have 2GB of memory has me 99.9% convinced that you have a new 200W, or what I refer to as a 205W wearing a 200W case.

Or should I install ALL the new maps on the SD card, and then delete the old maps from the nuvi?

Be on the safe side and backup the old maps before deleting anything from the nuvi. Backup this file to another folder/drive elsewhere on your PC before adding the new maps to the unit or SD Card. Map updates have been known to go wrong periodically (the map update installer can be at fault as well as the user).

I am trying to update the maps on my daughter in law's nuvi 200.

I could not download the updated map to the nuvi, because it does not have enough space.

While I personally prefer to do it that way, for most people I would recommend doing what Dorkus Nimrod says and load the entire map on the SD card. The only caveat you need to let your daughter-in-law know is that it will take the 200 a bit longer to boot because it has to read from the SD card, which is a bit slower.

If you connect your GPS to your computer and look at the GPS through the File Manager (or My Computer), you'll see a directory structure on the GPS.

Product name: nüvi® 200W Registration date: Aug 25, 2008 City Navigator North America NT 2011.30, Deluxe All Regions - Limited, Oct 10 Capacity : 1.86GB Used Space: 1.65GB The unit originally had City Navigator Lower 48 States NT 2009, Deluxe, Mar 08 loaded on it. Where are the and - buttons located in the map viewer? Knowing where the buttons are placed on the map viewer and what version the firmware is will eliminate any uncertainty that may remain.

In any case, I would have rather had a 250W or 260W since both of those have enough memory for the whole of North America, but I can't complain given that I got my 200W for from a coworker.

Make sure you have not clicked the Mute option unintentionally.
