I cant use the touch screen.. it wont work

If you have a Garmin 700 series unit, if the screen is not responding properly, Calibrate the touch screen.

Turn the unit off and then back on

Slide Power key to the right ( lock )

Hold your finger on the screen for about 30 seconds until the calibation screen appears.

Follow the on-screen instructions.

Touch screen not working

The digitizer is no longer calibrated correctly. Open a support case at TomTom.

I cannot program anything into directions because the screen does not bring up the number or letter when you touch it, it brings up the letter/number to the left of it. You cannot get the numbers/letters...

The problem is the screen needs to be calibrated, however this sometimes doesn't work if the touch screen is failing. I saw a lengthy procedure posted here in a different solution I have yet to try. But for the calibration you will go to menu - > display -> press FIND and follow the directions on screen. If calibration fails repeat, or find the other lengthy instructions here and try those. Several people claim they have worked, again, I haven't tried them. Another option is to purchase a remote for the unit. I have one and use it for mine because my screen totally failed. I have since replaced the screen with a junk unit I purchased on EBay but prefer the remote over the touch screen for most things. Remotes are about $30 bucks. If you're lucky you might be able to find a 2610 that includes a remote for around $50 and pick up an extra set of accessories. Good luck and post back if you have any other questions.

Garmin Nuvi 680 Touch Screen "touch" works intermittently

Recalibration has nothing to do with repairing this problem. If the touchscreen is non-responsive, how are you going to recalibrate it when it doesn't recognize the key presses?

The problem is caused by a defective touchscreen. SHARP substitued a different touchscreen into the 6xx series that fails even when the glass isn't damaged. The problem is caused by a defect in the manufacturing process where the touchscreen connections becomes detached from the tail that plugs into the board.

The touchscreen connections between the screen and the tail are made from conductive ink that can fracture, most likely caused when pressing on the screen over time.

These defective screens can be identified by a white tail cap at the end of the tail, whereas the original touchscreens have a maroon tail cap. The original touchscreens will only fail if the glass has been broken.

I only use the original touchscreens for all of my repairs.

Nuvi 350 Garbled voice

How is the other sound? Like MP3 sound? Is it garbled there? Try using headphones. If the sound is good there, then your internal speaker is bad.

Email me at ks3r at sharc dot net if you are interested in me fixing this for you.

My GPS system is having seizures

The solution is listed on the garmin site but it is not clear
The problem is with the infra red remote reciever on the unit
Sometimes the sun acts like the remote is being pressed and that is when it shakes
the solution, and I hope you still have the unit cause there is nothing outthere like it.

Answer: from garmin site Normally this issue is caused by sunlight from certain angles hitting the Infrared (IR) port on the unit. This makes the unit react as if the remote control was communicating with it. This makes it switch in between screens just like if you were using the remote.
You can disable the remote IR port on your StreetPilot® 26xx unit by:

  1. Powering your unit ON
  2. Press the Menu button
  3. Touch Options
  4. Touch the General tab
  5. Press the Menu button
  6. Touch Disable remote

If you wish to use the remote again you can enable the remote IR port on your StreetPilot 26xx unit by:

  1. Powering your unit ON
  2. Press the Menu button
  3. Touch Options
  4. Touch the General tab
  5. Press the Menu button
  6. Touch Enable remote

Lowrance 500c touchscreen

My iway 500c kinda had the same problem. At first while driving, the screen would go from 3d to always north to always up and be switching screens 3 to 4 times a second. It would finally go back to normal. After about a month of this the touch screen would work intermittently. It finally quit working completely on a trip to Texas. When I got home I called Lowrance and the said they would replace it for $350. I already spent over $600 for it. I took the thing apart and found the grounding screw to the touch screen was really loose. I tightened it and now its working again for now. I am not happy with Lowrance support.
