Juice spilled on a garmin nuvi 205

Does anyone know how to crack open a Garmin Nuvi 205? Juice was spilled on it and it still turns on and works but it blinks alot, I think if I could open it to clean it up a bit and let it air out it would be fine. I just cant seem to find how to open it! There are absolutely NO screw holes at all, and I'm a bit nervous at just wrenching it open. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

NO NO NO!!! There are hidden screws under the decal.... if you try to pry the case open without removing the screws you will crack the case. I've repaired literally hundreds of Nuvi's.

I would not recommend taking the unit apart as you risk damaging the unit. If the spill is around the LCD, the touchscreen & glass may need to be removed from the LCD and cleaned. It takes special care to separate the two without cracking them.

Also, you need to use the right cleaning agent or you will make the problem worse.

If you put 2 thin screwdrivers into the left hand side of the unit near the indentations and push them in you should be able to get it open that way there are a couple of clips that hold the unit together... if the unit is working fine then i honestly dont suggest trying to open it you may break something inside and damage it beyond repair.

Nuvi 205: I pushed the SD Micro chip into the wrong part of the slot. It disapeared into the back of the casing. Does anyone know how to open the casing?


Garmin uses small Hex / Torque type screws to close the casing for the Nuvi and Dezl range.

A Hex / Torque tool set in different sizes can be found in cellphone repair shops or hardware stores.

Unlock maps


I do know a 'workaround' to Garmin's copy-protection for maps you legally are entitled to use, but before that, when a Garmin Nuvi 205 stops working or behaves strangely, there are two steps you can take yourself to try and get it going again:

  1. Perform a Hard Reset,
  2. Run WebUpdater to reinstall that firmware.

I hope that helps.

Spilled juice in my purse this morning and the garmin nuvi 255w got water on it. now it will not come on at all!


Place your gps in a gallon jar with dry rice in it. Leave it for 24 hours or more. The rice will draw the moisture out of the unit and into the rice. Place on charger as normal, then power up.

My garmin nuvi 205 is not talking


hello. Begin by turning the volume all the way on. It is the little dial on the upper right side of the garmin. If that doesn't give you sound, return the unit as it is under warranty.
