    The only fuse is in the car adapter. Unscrew the tip, hold your hand over it so you don't lose the tip & spring. Pull the fuse out and read the value on the side or take it to Radio Shack and let the clerk find one for you. I would be interested in knowing what caused it to blow in the first place. Might happen again.

Online or just about any large automotive store or The Shack(radioshack) just make sure to take your blown fuse in and verify they are the same size.

Hope this helps

I needx a manual for garmin Nuvi225w

You do not need to pay for the complete Manual and troubleshooting guide.Go on Google and type in User Guide for Garmin 255w.Then click on Garmin 255w-review-Nuvi GPS.It takes you to Retrevo,and from there you need to follow the instructions.It is a 60 page printout Manual,which only prints in the middle of the page,so I cut it down to size,purchased a small binder,punched holes to fit the binder and there you have it for furture reference.

Forgot password on my garmin 255W

Page 37 of this manual gives some tips:

Basically, if you want to turn the system on, just return to your "Security Location."

If you want to reset the 4-digit code you will need to send your nuvi to Garmin and provide proof of purchase or valid registration.
