According to information in the link this unit does not support the real time positioning protocol and so it will not work.

It is not the software that is the problem but the GPS device. By 200W I assume this is the Nuvi 200W automative navigation unit. According to the information provided in my previous post these units do not output any form of real time position information. The 650 is in the same class as the 200W so I conclude your device will not work either.
