Short answer, is yes, you now have a nice dash ornament, as for repairs not to likely. Motherboard on this would have been live right up to the point that it shorted itself out. Time to look for a new one. Sorry

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...


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)
