I dont leave the Garmin in the car for fear of it being stolen (first model was stolen). So I put the Garmin in my purse which then got a quarter stuck in the card slot. Is this fixable?

Yes, but most likely the unit will need to be dissassembled. I would not use the unit with the coin inside as it can short out power leads that power the SD card. It may damage your Nuvi. I have fixed this problem before.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 255W, It was put in a box with other stuff in an Auction that I bid on. It looks in good condition but, it has a pass code that doesn't let me get in. Is there anyway of breaking...

Contact Garmin at that pass code is put in the unit by the owner in case it is stolen. Then the person who stole it cant use the unit because they dont have the pass code. When you get on Garmins page set up an account with them and then go to technical support there are email address's and phone numbers you can call to see if they can help you remove the pass code. When you get to Garmins webpage look at the top right hand corner where it says My Garmin click on that and then set up your account from there you can contact their tech support.

I hope this helps you out if it does please leave a YES on the page I have given you this response on. Thank you.

There is no master code, you have to send it in to Garmin to have it removed. This is to keep it from being used if it is stolen.

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.

I would take it back and demand a new one or replacement one. Some how someone must of you your serial number to register there, and now garmin seem to think that yours is stolen. Even though it is not. Garmin will lock the unit if a product gets, stolen and if someone else will try to update.
