I have a Nuvi 255 that has been given to me by a family

Customer Question

JA: Hi. How can we be of help?
Customer: I have a Nuvi 255 that has been given to me by a family member. I find the unit to be good except when I plug uit into my power source in my vehicle it continually beeps, and I have do not have any idea why it does this, and/or how to stop it.
JA: What model of Nuvi are you using? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: No really. . . but it is not a new model of that I am sure.
JA: What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: Not sure I understand your question. Nothing has "popped up" so to speak. I just use the usb cable to connect to the power source of the vehicle to ensure that I have battery life. . . then this continual/irritating beeping starts??
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I have looked at the user manual which I downloaded but cannot recognise this particular problem in the trouble shooting section/s
JA: Anything else you want the GPS expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: By connect me what do you mean? I thought that you were the help line person/expert? . . . But to answer your question. . . no, nothing else that I can think of.

If you connect the Nuvi when it is powered off, does it beep in that state?

Or when you turn it on, at what stage does it start beeping? e.g. at the welcome screen?

Are the beeps regular? e.g. 1 beep per second, 1 beep per 5 seconds
