Can not calibrate the screen


Here is the procedure to calibrate the screen if you can not reach the calibration screen through the GPS menus.

Nuvi 2xx/2xxW Series: Turn the Nuvi off. Place your finger on the upper left-hand corner of the screen and then slide the on/off power switch to the left and hold until you see the calibration screen. Note: Some 2xxW models require the procedure below for the 7xx.

Nuvi 7xx Series: Turn the Nuvi off. Touch the screen anywhere and keep your finger there while moving the on/off switch to left (don't wait for Garmin logo to come up) and then quickly moving the switch the right (lock position). After a short while, you will reach the calibration screen. Go through the entire procedure of pressing each dot as it appears on the screen until it says "Done".
Now if you go through and press the dots and it keeps looping without saying "calibration complete" then the touchscreen has drifted out of specification and must be replaced.
Please see this link for more information about touchscreens and how to get it replaced.

How do I lock the screen on the Garmin nuvi 500? (not lock the device--just the screen)


on the power switch you should see a slide where you slide it to the right. This will put it in safe mode operation, meaning you cannot touch the buttons until you are stopped. If you do not have the slide switch and you have the push button switch, then navigate to tools/settings/security. You will have two options, the first one is garmin lock, don't worry about this one. Look at the other one, it says safe mode. turn this on. The screen will only be locked as long as you're moving. When you stop, it will not be locked anymore until you start moving again. If you touch the screen while moving, it will ask you if you want to turn safe mode off. Hope this helps.

GARMIN NUVI 850 AM SCREEN KEEPS LOCKING UP PROBLEM APPEARS TO HAPPEN AFTER ABOUT 15 SECONDS OF BEING TURNED ON NO MATTER WHAT SCREEN IS BEING DISPLAYED. YOU CAN MOVE THE SLIDE SWITCH SWITCH TO THE LOCK...


Garmin used to have good products, but seem to be slipping badly lately. I have an 850 and it does the same thing. I have downloaded all new software that is suppose to fix it, but it is still happening. Great they have a removable battery now. Little did we know that it is removable so we can reboot the piece of junk!

Try the latest software and keep youe dingers crossed.
