Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver

2 Answers

I have a broken digitizer in my nuvi 255w. I found a place to buy one, and have a friend who replaces these in cell phones. Does anyone know if there's a trick to opening the housing? Or just pry open gently?

    Also, are you aware that there have been (3) versions of LCD's used in a Nuvi 255W, all using different styles of touchscreens? - Jim SHARCNET-USA

    Having replaced hundreds of Nuvi touchscreens, if you try to pry open the unit, you'll certainly damage it for sure... why take the risk? - Jim SHARCNET-USA

On the 255w there are 2 hidden torx screws under the serial # sticker on the bottom..use a hair drier and twizzers to pull it back on each end of the sticker so you dont ruin it. remove the screws and carefully split the case(i use my finger nail)

Locked out of my nuvi 255w askin for a 4 digit num code bought it from a friend of a friend help plz


This problem cannot be solved. You will need to send it to Garmin with an original receipt from an authorized Garmin dealer in order to have Garmin reset the password. Otherwise, you will need the friend of a friend to give you the PIN to unlock it. This is a security feature on the Garmins and cannot be bypassed.

WHEN I POWER ON MY NUVI 255W IT SAYS NO DETAILED


sounds like the map folder in the gps software got corrupted. you will have to connect your device to your computer, get on the Garmin website, and let the garmin site update your device. Once updated, it will re-install the correct folders and maps to their proper place. the gps should work as before after that.
