Peel off the serial code sticker on the bottom. There is a tiny tab, pressing it in with a paper clip will reset your 255 and it will be good to go. I hope this helps.

No serial number on my Garmin 255 Nuvi, can't regester


The serial number should be on the bottom of the unit on the decal. If your decal is missing, the unit is not new and has been tampered with.

How do i reset it


There are (2) versions of this model.

1. Version one has a reset flap on the bottom where the decal is. Push on the flap and hold for 8 seconds.

2. Version 2 is reset by holding the power switch to the left for 8 seconds and releasing.

This info comes from the manual.

Do i have to charge gps in car before first use . brand new want to make sure i dont ruin life of battery


No, When your using the GPS with the car adapter, its running on an external power source. The battery charge status is unimportant at this point. To charge the battery just move and hold the on/off switch to the left until the screen says "Charging Battery" and then release the switch.

Nuvi locked up wont shut off or do any thing


Try holding the slider "on" until it resets. the 255W doesn't have a hard reset button.
