Have you tried using the screen calibration command? Press the Wrench symbol, then the Display symbol and then Calibrate screen. Press the dots as it tells you to and you should now have a calibrated touchscreen.

I was having a similar problem with my Garmin Nuvi 670. The screen would freeze and would become unresponsive, it turns out that the problem was the metal case surrounding the touch screen was slighlty bent in, touching the screen causing my GPS touch screen to become unresponsive. To fix the problem I took a mini flathead screw driver and CAREFULLY slightly pried the metal case that surrounds the touch screen away from the screen and now my Garmin and I are best friends again!!! Hope this will help with you touch screen problems on your Garmin Nuvi 670.

I have a similar problem with my nuvi 660. I discovered a temporary fix is to hold down the power button for 2-3 minutes during power up and the recalibration process is started.

How do you get a new # on the phone and onto the screen?


There are several ways to enter a number into your Phone Book:


1. Call GreatCall Customer Service for assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-733-6632.
2. Create an account at mygreatcall.com and modify your Phone Book online.
3. Manually enter a number into your phone.


To manually enter a number, it depends somewhat on what model phone you have - either the Jitterbug Original/One Touch or the Jitterbug J. In all cases, you will need to open the phone and access the Phone Book menu option. With an Original or One Touch, this can be done by pressing NO until you see PHONE BOOK listed at the top of the screen. With a J, you will press YES once the option for PHONE BOOK is highlighted in the center of the screen.

Press the up arrow and you will see the option EDIT PHONE BOOK. Press YES to select. Press YES again to select Add. Now you will be prompted to type in the name of the contact using the Triple-Tap method. Each number corresponds to 3 letters. Tap the appropriate number in quick succession until you see the letter you want to enter. Use the "#" to enter a space.

Example: To enter the name "John," you would press 5-666-44-66.

Once you are satisfied with the name, press YES to select DONE. You will then be prompted to enter the number. It is recommended that you include 1, the area code, and then the 7-digit number even if it is a local number.

Example: 1-760-555-4321

Once done, press YES again. You will see the message Successfully Added and you are done!

Problem with entering anti-theft radio code for Honda Fit: The radio screen says: "Enter Code:" I enter the confirmed correct code, but when doing so when the actual code (all numbers) turn into letters or...


when you use the "preset keys" (the keys on the radio with numbers on them) to enter the code, each time you press a code number, a letter appears [c, o, d, e]. once the word is spelled out, from entering the correct 5 digits, the radio is reset, ready to go.

BUT if you miss a number, enter a wrong number, whatever, each number pressed, still makes a letter appear from the word "code". once the word is spelled out, by entering ANY 5 numbers, if ANY of the 5 is wrong, the radio displays a message "Error" and then a number 1 thru 10.

When you see the word "Error..."

the next preset button you push, starts the whole thing over again. The radio says "Enter code". That is when you enter the 1st of the 5 digits, the letter C appears, enter the next digit, the letter O appears, enter the next digit, the letter D appears, enter the last digit, the letter E apperas, the radio is reset, ready to go, if you got the 5 correct numbers entered.

you have 10 chances to enter the right 5 digit code. Each wrong try of 5 digits yeilds a display of "Error 1", "Error 2", "Error 3", etc 'till you get to 10 incorrect tries of 5 digits each.

If you dont get it right in 10 tries, you have to leave the radio "on" for an hour, then it will let you start the 10 tries over again.

Good luck!

Problem with the touch screen on my Garmin Nuvi 350


Have you tried the "recalibrate" touchscreen command?

Press the "wrench" symbol at the main menu, then the "display" icon, and then "recalibrate".
Go through pressing the dots as requested and see if that cures your problem.
