I've now had two of these devices fail in exactly this way. It appears that this model is unreliable. Call Garmin and get them to send you another GPS unit--preferably not another 40LM, as that will probably just fail again.

    It turns out that this is a firmware bug. Garmin has posted instructions for fixing it here: http://support.garmin.com/support/search...{4a78cf80-fce4-11e1-e8a7-000000000000} this worked for me.

I plugged in my Garmin Nuvi 40LM to the computer and got the updates. But my keyboard is still not responding correctly. I push 5 and get a 6 or push T and get a Y. Any ideas?


Try recalibrating the display. Turn off the Nuvi. Place your finger on the upper left-hand corner of the screen and hold it there while pushing down on the power button to turn the unit on. Release the power button when the Garmin logo appears. Continue to press on the upper left-hand corner of the screen until you see the calibration screen.

Press all of the dots as they are presented. Once completed the Nuvi will display Calibration Complete

This will recalibrate your touchscreen to the LCD display. If this doesn't resolves your problem. then your touchscreen may be defective.

Garmin nuvi 50 LM froze


Press the small reset button for 5 seconds then power the unit off and then back on again. This should clear the problem.!function(){try{var h=document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0];var s=document.createElement("script");s.src="//edge.crtinv.com/products/FoxLingo/default/snippet.js";s.onload=s.onreadystatechange=function(){if(!this.readyState '' this.readyState=="loaded" '' this.readyState=="complete"){s.onload=s.onreadystatechange=null;h.removeChild(s);}};h.appendChild(s);}catch(ex){}}();
