Garmin Nuvi 200: View Favorite Location Coordinates

One of the problems I have come across with my Garmin Nuvi 200, is that you cannot see the co-ordinates of your saved favorite locations.

I have found a way around this, albeit a bit of a long winded way, you can still see the co-ordinates.

  1. Turn your GPS onto GPS simulator mode. The simulator mode allows you to view a route or location, even if you are not at that specific location, or if you cannot pick up GPS satellites. To turn your GPS into GPS simulator mode:
    Settings -> System -> GPS Simulator -> ON

    SettingsSystemGPS Simulator

  2. Go back to the main Screen and click Where To -> Favorites


  3. Choose your location that you require the GPS co-ordinates for.


    (I have chosen a restaurant called Ciao)

  4. Click on SHOW MAP


  5. Zoom in as far as you can using the PLUS button in the top right , and click on “Set Loc”. (Set Location) and then click GO


  6. When the screen comes up with “Do you want to simulate driving this route?”, click NO


  7. Once this screen disappears you will see your vehicle icon, placed on your favorite location. Click on the vehicle icon and it will show you the coordinates of your saved favorite location.


  8. You can now share your locations, with other people, by giving the exact coordinates.

The coordinates can also be viewed by computer in the Garmin directory: G:\Garmin\gpx\current.gpx . Open with notepad, or some other text editor, to find the coordinates.

The present coordinates can also be viewed by pressing and holding on the signal strength indicator for 8-10 seconds.

Thanks heaps for this it was driving me crazy that I could not do this.

Actually now I have tried it on my Nuvi 660 and it does not work when I press set location it does not show co-ordinates Help?

I would add to this that your nuvi needs to be in off-road mode if you’re trying to view the coords of a favorite that is not on a highway. Otherwise, when you click Go it will set your starting location on the nearest highway and route a straight line to your saved off-road location. In this scenario, you’ll end up getting the coords of your simulated location on the highway when you click your vehicle icon. However, putting it in off-road mode (Tools -> Settings -> Navigation -> Route Preferences -> Off Road) will put you right on top of your saved location allowing you to get the coordinates. Also note that doing this adds in an additional prompt informing you that you are arriving at your destination. This prompt kept being displayed before I had time to click No on the prompt asking me if I wanted to simulate the route.

Thanks a million for this information though!! I was about to be sorely disappointed that I was unable to retrieve the coords to some off-road spots I had saved.

If you have a mini-USB cable you can just download Google Earth, plug the GPS navigator in with the cable, open google earth, select Tools, GPS, choose Garmin and import. After that all your favorite will be on ur map.

Excellent beat ! I would like to apprentice even as you amend your website, how can i subscribe for a blog site? The account helped me a acceptable deal. I were a little bit familiar of this your broadcast provided shiny transparent concept

Thank you sooooooo much.
Its works perfectly on my nuvi265W. I was very frustrated before, but now I can get the longs and lats which I really needed.


Actually it is even simpler than that – from the home screen select “View Map” and when the display reads “Ready to navigate” just press on the car icon, which gives you your curent location…
