Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver
The keyboard entry on my Nuvi is miscalibrated. The touch is shifted by 3/4 of a character. It makes it difficult to select the right side char's (it's shifted left).
Is there any way to recalibrate the touch screen?
Have you tried the Recalibrate Screen option in the tools menu? It may be in the "Display" option. I don't have a Nuvi in front of me to walk you through the steps but there is an option for it.
It will show you dots at various locations on the screen and you touch them. By doing so, it calibrates the screen.
