Turned on NUVI 310 this morning and it has a 7mm white stripe running vertically down LHS of screen; when used last time it worked fine. Have tried powering on-off several times together with reseting unit (button at rear) and resetting the factory defaults in menu (settings) to no avail. Any ideas ? Thanks alot.

    Very possible that the LCD display has failed. I have these in stock but I would not recommend that you to attempt to replace it on your own. Please email me at ks3r at sharc dot net and I'll provide you with a quote to repair this problem. I have references.

Garmin 1100lm locked in press dot game?


Your unit is in calibration mode. There should be a black dot to press on the calibration screen. Keep pressing the dot as it moves around the screen, you may need to press very firmly and use a stylus until it says calibration complete.
This usually occurs when a unit is dropped or left in extreme temperatures or jammed it a glove box or console with things jammed against the screen. It could also occur if you are touching the screen as you start.

Touch screen not working


Try to remove the battery and insert it back into your gps device and turn it on. If the screen does not still work, then you need to reset the nuvi, by holding down the power button for about 15 seconds, then the unit will restart, that way the touch screen should respond. If it still does not work, then you need to calibrate the screen to get it to work. To calibrate the screen, follow the sreps below:
  1. Turn off your nuvi,
  2. Press your finger on the upper left corner of the touch screen,
  3. While holding your finger on the touch screen, turn on the nuvi,
  4. Continue to hold your finger on the screen for about 30 seconds until the calibration screen appears (white screen with touch dot),
  5. Then follow the on screen instructions.
It might not work trying it once, so you have to try it over time till it works. Calibration is the last resort of all solutions, so if calibrating it does not do the work, then it means it a an internal problem.

What to do? touch screen just stopped working? worked, and then 30 minutes later nothing...turned off/on several times, can't enter PIN or push "view map".


Try to remove the battery and re insert it back in to see if it will work. Or hold down the power on/off for about 15 seconds, that should do the job.
If that does not do it, then calibrate the screen, to calibrate the screen, follow the steps below:
  1. Turn off your nuvi,
  2. Press your finger on the upper left corner of the touch screen,
  3. While holding your finger on the touch screen, turn on the nuvi.
  4. Continue to hold your finger on the screen for about 30 seconds until the calibration screen appears(white screen with touch dot),
  5. Then follow the on screen instructions.
That should do the job for you. hope this helps.

Good morning When I switch on my C70 i have not the normal screen, only vertical lines. Sometimes the screen works, but next time the same problem appers...vertical lines e can't use it. Can you help...


I recognize the problem. It mostly occurs when the plotter is exposed to moist during some days. The contactstrip which connects the computer to the screen gets moist and does not conduct in an optimal way. The result is a non readable screen with stripes

The solution is simple: press on the edges of the screen and the contact is re-established.

White "press dot" screen


The actual answer is to press the dots, but use a dull plastic tool that fits "within" the dot. Otherwise the width of your finger is too imprecise to calibrate the dots and screen.

Hope you, and others, get this and try it. It works. I just discovered it and did it, successfully after only about 10 presses.

Nuvi 650 touch screen stopped working


My Garmin Nuvi 650 would boot up and load maps, but I could not enter my access code. Screen would not respond. Turned off & on a number of times, but still same problem. This occurred on first use after upgrading the maps. Thinking it may have overheated on the dashboard of my truck, I held the device in front of the air conditioner vent for about five minutes to cool it down. When I then turned it on, it worked fine. For the rest of my 3-week vacation, I kept it cool & out of the sun when it was not turned on. No problems after that.

I have the White Screen of Death


Try pressing the reset button underneath the antenna and if this doesn't help, then you'll need to have the LCD display replaced.

Garmin Nuvi 350 Calibration Issue


Turn the unit off. Press and hold down the power button and keep holding it. You will see the screen light up and it will say "pre-boot mode". Keep holding down the power key. It will then say "booting". Keep holding the power button down. You'll then come to the calibation screen. Select the dots and you'll be back in business.
