1. After punching in an address-two (2) duplicate results always show up.
2. My Zumo 550 is a year and half old. I just saw a brand new one at the local Harley dealer and it's operation was very crisp. Can mine be 'updated' to function like the new one?
3. The touch screen is not accurate. As an example; on the keyboard I will touch an 'E' and a 'M' will display.

master reset: with the Zumo off, press andhold the lowest right corner of the touch screen while powering it on, keep the touch touch screen pressed until it says something like are you sure. then press yes and follow the onscreen instruction
Has the unit ever been really wet or is there a hole in the touch screen foil? If not have you ever done a cold reset? . First turn the unit OFF, then HOLD your thumb on the furthest bottom right hand corner of the screen, push as far into the corner as you can on the screen itself. While holding your thumb/finger on the screen press and hold the POWER ON button until you see the ZUMO splash screen, once the splash screen is up you can release the power, but continue to hold your thumb in the right corner of the screen for another 5 - 10 seconds, you should see a window that pops up and asks "Do you really want to erase all user data?", make sure to answer YES to this window, if you don't see this window, then turn unit OFF and try the above instructions again, ensuring your thumb is in the furthest portion of the bottom right hand corner of the touch screen.
The problem is with maps overlaying. If you go to the little spanner and then press Map and press Map Info you should only see one Map info. If you have more than one then you need to connect to a computer and go to the Garmin drive. Remove the additional map this will be called suppmap1. Just move it for the time being to you computer just in case you need to put it back. Another way to check is to press and hold the Volume key on the left whilst powering up. This bring all the info for the unit. Press Next then More on the screen the map name is the 6th one down. Whatever Garmin tells you to do will not work. I sent mine back and they replaced it within 5 days. Service on that score is excellent.
I'm not familiar with the Zumo family of GPS from Garmin, but if they are similar enough to the StreetPilot, you should be able to recalibrate the screen. In the StreetPilot series, to recalibrate you turn the unit off. Press and hold the bottom right of the screen and turn the unit on. Keep pressing the screen until the calibration information begins. Try this, see if it works on the Zumos, too.
I have recently purchased a Zumo 550 and successfully copied across selected phone book entries from a Nokia N95 without the need to use any additional apps:-
1) Assuming the N95 and Zumo are paired via BlueTooth
2) In N95 Contacts - use 'Mark' / 'Mark All' as necessary to select the contact entries you wish to transfer to the Zumo 550
3) In N95 Contacts - select 'Options' then 'Send Business Card' then 'Via Bluetooth'
4) Select the Zumo 550 device from the list of paired Bluetooth devices
5) Contact data is transferred from N95 phonebook to Zumo 550 phonebook
Interestingly, Garmin don't seem to list the Nokia N95 as being a supported device on their website, but the above process worked for me!!
