Question about Garmin n vi 360 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Touch Screen Frozen

My Nuvi 360 touch screen does not respond at all. I cannot enter my PIN, nor can I adjust the brightness or volume (the only 2 features I can access without entering my PIN). I have tried pressing the reset button, with and without the unit plugged into power. I'd appreciate any help. Thank you.

Note: A master reset will erase all favorites1 and will restore your device to the default factory settings. If you would like to back up your favorites to your computer, you can find instructions to do so on the Garmin site
To perform a master reset on a nuvi 300 series device:
1.Start with the device OFF and unplugged from the power source
2.Touch and hold the top right corner of the touchscreen2
3.Power the device ON while continuing to hold the touchscreen
4.The message "Do you really want to erase all user data?" will appear
5.Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
6.Touch Yes
After the nuvi resets, follow the on-screen prompts, and then place your device in an area with a clear view of the sky until it acquires satellites.
Although the master reset will erase all saved favorites, any loaded custom points of interest will remain intact on the device.
If the message in step 3 does not appear when using the top right corner of the touchscreen, please repeat these steps using the bottom right corner of the touchscreen instead.

SOURCE: My Nuvi 360 volume for

It is possible to turn up the voice level...but you have to be willing to hack the voice file a wee bit with a hex editor.
Just Open the .vpm file you want to modify in the hex editor, and search for "<voice_volume>96</voice_volume>" without the quotation marks...and change the numerical value - I have Australian Karen cranked up to 96. This makes the sound level of the voice prompts comparable to the MP3 level when I hook my Nuvi350 into my vehicle's sound system via the added line input that takes the place of the non-existent CD changer. Before I did this, when I played MP3s at a comfotable listening level, the voice prompts were too quiet. Now, they're comparable.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 350 Touch Screen unresponsive

The touch screen lays on top of the LCD display. It has its own flex cable that plugs into the main board. It is possible for the LCD display to work fine while the touch screen does not. They are two separate parts and work independently!

If your touch screen all of a sudden quit working, I would ask did you ever drop it?

I have repaired many Nuvi's with a non-functioning touch screen. I can't speak for every instance but the ones i took apart, the flex screen cable was loose from the main board.

Don't attempt to fix this yourself unless you know what your doing. Email me at ks3r at sharc dot net if your interested in me repairing your Nuvi at a reasonable price. I have references.

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.

Touch screen locked unable to unlock it.


Give it back to the owner. Owners don't forget PIN and they also know the secret location where the unit will unlock itself without the PIN.

Touchscreen not responding.


There are three levels of fixes, please try them in order:
1. Reset the GPS using the Reset button, on the back, just under the Antenna Hinge. Resetting will turn off the GPS, and then turn it back on, if connected to power. Test, if fixed, great, otherwise, go to fix 2.
2. Turn the power off, then press and hold the powerbutton for up to 2 minutes. The GPS will turn on, and display a "PreBoot Mode" message. When that message disappears, and the screen calibration screen appears, follow the on-screen instructions, and you are fixed. If you still cannot use the touch screen, repeat fixes 1 and 2 several times, just to be sure., then go to fix 3
3. The touch-screen glass has probably broken or lost its connection with the GPX motherboard. You can order new touch screen glass on the web and install yourself, if you are techy in nature, otherwise do a search for "garmin nuvi 660 repair" and choose your service.
