The eBay seller / store http://stores.ebay.com/Nuvi-2007 sells replacement Nuvi screens which include the tools to open the Garmin case. came wiith color diagrams, but it just says "OPEN CASE WITH TOOLS" so I am trying to find a little more information to avoid breaking somethingin the process - but their documents and tools seems pretty right on.

    First, look on the bottom of the nuvi 205 for the serial# sticker, peel it off carefully, as you want to replace it later.
    You will find two screws there, they are torx #5, remove those, then take a small flat-head screw driver along the seam, and carefully pry open, you will hear clicking, as it releases.
    open the top first, as there is a fragile cable on the bottom connecting the screen to the unit.
    you will then see the battery and circuit board. four phillips screws will remove board, so you can unplug battery, and replace it.

Does your Garmin Nuvi 1450 Freeze at Loading Maps?
Does it lock up or stop working?

This tip will describe how to perform a hard reset of the device, and how to backup your 'Favorites' in case the hard reset erases them. The next step in fixing your Nuvi when it doesn't start properly is to update its system software using Garmin WebUpdater.

A hard reset (or Clear All User Data) has been known to resolve unit quirks and strange behavior. It's generally recommended to perform it after a firmware update but is not required by any means. However, if you're seeing quirks and strange behavior with your unit after the firmware update, it is a good idea to do a hard reset of the unit.

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
Perform the Hard Reset:

*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit

  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Remove the battery and wait several minutes.
  3. Install the battery.
  4. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  5. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears.
  6. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite almanac data.


You have now performed a hard reset of your Garmin Nuvi 1450 series GPS unit.

I hope that helps.

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.

Garmin 660 na repair


Please do not try to repair this problem yourself. You risk damaging the case and/or LCD display. In many cases, the headphone jack connections must be reinforced with wire and the jack itself needs to be epoxied to the board.

Open the case of a Garmin nuvi 255w


i am wondering why you want to open it.

There are some small parts that will fall out unless you are very careful and even more difficult to put back when you try and close it up
. Other than to change the battery there are no fuses or user repairable parts inside.
