I had a Nuvi 200W, and got rid of it for a 205W, which is MUCH better in terms of satellite fix. It's almost instantaneous as opposed to waiting up to 3 minutes with the 200W.

Lots of great tips there, and specifically, this one:
Which has some ways to get non-routing Garmins to route (sort of). That site is maintained by Gary Heyman, who is a contributor here.
Call Garmin and tell them you need Mapsource for backing up and viewing data. They will probably send you the DVD for free.
