    I was able to remove my gps board with a 1.5mm philips screwdriver. I bought a micro screwdriver kit from Helipad, item #LT-0034. It's kind of expensive, but everything needed is there.

    It's called Phillips #0 size. Any common set of "Precision Screwdrivers" (found in typical stores) is likely to have it.

    I was thinking more like a #000 size. I have a #00 and it seems too big.

    Just buy a jewelers set. They're cheap and you have different sizes.

    Or a standard PC repair set from any cheapo computer place also has the right size.

    Great Question Kelvin . You most definitely need a special type. The Size & Tip hardness are crutial to successfully removing & Installing screws. I went through many different types and have had the most success with a Company named ...."wiha"...tool # 261/PH))x40 (made in Germany) I found this Web address for you that shows the Pic ect...

    It would be nice if there was a decent quality slotted screw driver set with Philips and hex rather than all the torx stuff.
