SOURCE: Nuvi 255 battery replacement
Remove the sticker on the back of the Nuvi 255 showing your serial number. Below it (I'm told) are two screws. Not sure the type. But if you feel your finger across the sticker on the back of the Nuvi 255, you can feel there are two depressions on either side that indicate to you that there are screws being covered by the sticker.
Mobile phone repair tools often come with a plastic prying tool, so if you need something to pry the plastic covers apart without damaging the edges of the casing, buying a mobile phone repair kit for a couple of bucks seems like cheap insurance. After you've unscrewed the Nuvi 255, you can use one of the plastic pry tools it contains.
It's such a sad state when companies design things without removable batteries, and they will never be rewarded by me for doing this.

If you unplug the unit and remove the battery
i would check the fuse inside the unit to be sure that it is ok if it is than
leave it unplugged and the batttery out for 30 min and if there is a reset button on this after the battery is removed hold in the reset in for 2 minutes then after the 30 min replace the battery and plug in the unit and try it again his should be enough time for the internal reset to reset it'self than just replace the battery and if this still oes not help remove the battery again and leave it sit for 1 hour to let the internal reset device reset it'self ok and you should be good to go
Hope this is very helpful
Best regards Michael

Hook your Garmin into your pc -using the USB cord provided with the kit- run the disk -then go to GARMIN dot com and look for maps for your unit. There is a charge.

Hook up your nuvi to the computer and surf to the Garmin website. They will have the latest upgrade - but they're not free! Read all about the maps you'd like to install for possible issues/bugs (we call them undocumented features). Be prepared with your credit card if you like what you see. Good luck!
