Question about Garmin nuvi 205W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Nuvi 205w LCD screen replacement needed.

I bought Garmin nuvi 205w, few months back. The LCD screen has got damaged with cracks, seems to have been dropped. The GPS boots up but the touch screen function not working. 
Please let me know where can I get the screen replaced as the seller says he can not help in screen physical damage and also can't arrange for a screen replacement.
Regards. SK

Your only reasonable solutions are:

1) Send it back to Garmin for repair, which will probably cost you more than the unit is worth, or...

2) Check CraigsList or other places for good deals. The prices on these things have been in nose-dive mode for months and you're liable to find a very good deal for very little money. (I just bought a StreetPilot C330 for $50 from CraigsList last week.)

I have a garmin nuvi 205w.The face screen is cracked How can I get the screen replace?


You can buy a new lcd/digitizer on ebay and fit it yourself, if you are in the game! It is not to be attempted unless you are experienced in this type of repair as it is a delicate procedure and you need the right tools and environment. You could send it to garmin workshop, but it is so expensive you might as well sell it for spares and buy a new unit!. Good luck!

Garmin Nuvi 1300 (and 1490T) won't start up


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

It sounds like the ribbon cable that connects the screen to the controller might be seated incorrectly. I would check that.
