Hi,
looks like your touch screen is faulty . it could just be dust / dirt under the edges of the screen. If dust is trapped under the edge , it can effectivly be pressing the screen a little causing letetr to change or dissapear. See if you can get to clean under and around the edges , if the cleanup doesn't work then most likely cause is a faulty touch screen which will need replacing. Good luck.

Hi there why is it that my sat nav only allows me to enter part of address or postcode and blanks out the rest of the input keyboard. There is no setting on my device to allow all functions of the alphabet...


magellan gps is that kind.the blanking out is to prevent errors. let put it this way. 123 west pine lane . for example
type city... then street. as soon as one letter is typed. search is narrowed to a minimum to make it easier to gps to search your destination with much less errors
type p.( for pine)
then. all letters visible. are for all street names that start with p in the city you selected before. .
then p i
a few letters will be displayed.meaning that only names that start with pi will show. like picture picnic pine pin pint pine pines
when you type pine as for address..
it wil show you all streets that matches city and street
123 west pine
123 east pine lane
123 north pine lane
123 south pine rd
123 south pine ave
your selection will be 123 west pine lane.
if you dont want to strugle with that gps. i highly recommend GARMIN GPS devices

Missing letters


NO
Try a screen recalibration to see if that restores your missing letters

Missing letters from my alphabet


You will most likely need a firmware upgrade from this website to fix the problem: http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
It will walk you through the steps and your letters should be back to normal after the update.

Two Letters have disappeared


same thing happened to mine, except it is the B and S. No pun intended... I push mode, then change it to british, and use the letters there. Inconvenient, and it doesn't fix the prob, but at least you can find what you are looking for.

My garmin nuvi 250 special edition comes up with a scrambled alphabet. Some duplication and some letters missing and one blank space. A@BDEFG @ JKHMN MPQRPTU VWXXZ Can it somehow be reset,...


Hey... I found a USB cable that fit my Nuvi and then downloaded updated system software from Garmin's support site. It included a bug fix for corrupted keyboards. After running the update, it works! My keyboard is all correct again.

Try setting your GPS mode to WAAS and then back. It's a calibration issue. Also, make sure you update your unit.

Missing the letter S


I called Garmin customer service and they told me to plug the unit into my computer and it would reset itself and all the letters would be restored. I did this and it worked! I realize the usb cable does not come with the Garmin nuvi 250, however you may have a cable that came with a cell phone or a digital camera. My camera cable worked great.
