The standard method of charging the Garmin Nuvi 200W involves plugging the Nuvi into your car's power outlet using a car charger. However, two alternate methods are available. You can either use a USB-charging cable or a wall-outlet charging cable. Neither cable comes standard with the Nuvi 200W; you'll have to order the optional accessory to charge the Nuvi 200W without a car charger. The typical charging process takes about two hours.
