You will need a 60/40 solder and you will have to take it apart it will probley not be waterproof but if it is not in waranty it will not matter. mine broke all the way to the circuit board and it has a spring that is soldered directly to the board but it works now! IMO very sorry design for a waterproof rugged unit! The guy at Golf Logic agreed the battery compartment could of been made better! I am looking for a design with a snap out battery compartment rechargeable of course!

USB port on the backside of the Garmin Nuvi 265WT GPS broken. Can someone repair/replace the port?

The cost of repairs will be more than the cost of a new unit. A special tool is needed to open the unit to depress the multiple spring pressure locks all at the same time.

Where you plug in to charge is broke


If you broke the lighter socket on car dash, replace it.

If you broke the cable replace the cable. Here the spare:Garmin Power Cables

If you instead damaged the power socket on your Garmin, call the Garmin number listed in the owners manual. The Sat Nav must be sent to Garmin for repair:Garmin ' Contact

Next time use a Suction Mount Windscreen Holder

My Garmin GPS nuvi 265WT had the usb port in the back stop working. I think its basically because the plastic cover broke and when i tried to put the charger into it it bend and broke one of the metal...

Yes your a captive audience, only Garmin has the parts and they want to do the repairs. Maybe you could find a broken one on Ebay and strip it for parts is all I can think of.

I hope this helps you out if it does please leave me some positive feedback

I have a garmin 238 gps and 2 pins on the back broke off. How can i get them repaired. I live in the cayman islands

More than likely they broke off due to corrosion. Are these the power pins? You can send it to either garmin and pay a flat rate fee, or to Mid-Shore Electronics in Ocean City, MD. 410-228-7335. I hear they do pretty good work.

I would contact Garmin and get their price for a repair. Navigation is too important to trust to a repair that may or may not be correct. Just go to and click on the support tab.

Thanks for using

Screen broke

Here are your options:

1. Contact Garmin to repair your unit.
2. Purchase a As-Is Nuvi 3xx on eBay with a working screen and repair yours.

4. Purchase a new GPS.

My screen broke

Garmin will replace the screen for a fee. Mine broke when the suction cup mount came loose and it hit the gear shift. To be clear, it was the touch sensitive "grid" that broke on mine, and not the actual display part. The Garmin support person put my repair in as a "no charge", and they did it for me for free.
