Re-calibrate Screen on Tom Tom One Regional

When I'm entering an address or postcode the letters touched are not the same ones coming up on the screen. Does the screen need re-calibrated, if so, how? Steve

Re: Re-calibrate Screen on Tom Tom One Regional

I tried this to fix my tomtom one, but it didn't work.

It may be worth a try on other models, though....

Re: Re-calibrate Screen on Tom Tom One Regional

Same problem here. The bottom of the screen seemed to go wrong, so hitting any of the buttons there would register as hitting the button above. Big problem when press 'Done' or backspace!

For a while, I resorted to keeping a pen in the car, and using that to touch the buttons instead of my finger. Touching the buttons at the very bottom seemed to have a bit more success.

Eventually though, I gave up and ended up getting a newer Garmin unit. It's disappointing that TomTom don't have any any way of recalibrating the touch screen though, as this kind of feature is common on most other touchscreen devices that I've used.

When i try to type in address the wrong letters keeps coming up

Do a screen calibration. There are different ways to get to it depending on which GPS you have but that usually fixes problems like that.

My garmin nuvi 670 touch screen is not calibrated

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.

We have a problem putting in names and addresses.

All tomtoms are more or less the same. You tap the screen to make selections.
Switch on , let it boot up / Tap the screen / Then tap " Navigate to" / then tap "address" / Then tap either "City centre" or " Street and House Number , or Postcode " ( you select one of these by tapping screen ) . Lets say you just tapped "Postcode" . A keypad will appear on the screen for you to enter a postcode. NOW, enter the postcode ... as you enter the postcode , streetnames will appear and you can either continue to enter the postcode OR you can choose one of the street names that appear. Once you have done this , the tomtom will ask you to select a "house number" . if you don't know the number then just 'try' selecting number 1 . Once you have done this , select "Done" and the tomtom will switch for that screen to the "route calculation screen" . if you now tap the screen once more your tomtom will start giving you direction both visual and audible , to your destination . ( you must begin to move before it will start ) . ....................... Once you have completed the journey , you can now cancel the navigation by once again tapping the screen , then use the "right arrow icon" to move through the menue screens. When you see an icon with a RED CROSS through it , and underneath it says " clear route" , select that by tapping and the route / navigation will be cleared. ... Good luck , hope this helps.

Tom Tom 720 keeps jumping to main menu

Well I finally figured it out for those who might run across this problem.

It seems that when it got hot and expanded the grey bezel around the screen would touch the screen just enough to activate it. I gently pried the bezel up just a bit and it seems to have solved the problem.
