Just push the regular off button. It may take a time or two but hold the off button for about 5 seconds it will shut off then.

How do I recharge the battery on my Garmin Nuvi 255WT? I would also like to know how to update my Garmin?


Recharging the battery is done by connecting the nuvi to a vehicle power cable in the car through the vehicle power accessory outlet or cigarette lighter.
The unit can also be charged via a powered USB port off your computer via the USB power/data cable or an AC power adapter through the USB power/data cable.

I have the garmin 255wt and the box said 255wt but the unit said 255w and the instructions were for a 205 but thru trial and error and the help of forums I came up with the solution that the power cord has to be plug in and in the area that has fm and when it asked you for the ativation code you dont need it for lifetime subscriptions it just works
