Question about Garmin GPSMAP 76Cx GPS Receiver
My Garmin nuvi 200 is not calibrated and i CAN NOT HIT THE BOTTOM BUTTON IN ORDER TO GET TO THE SCREEN THAT LETS ME CALIBRATE AGAIN. aNY IDEAS?
Yup, same problem. All it took was holding the power button to the left for about 30 seconds and the calibration screen came up. Problem solved!

I think I just solved this!
(I had the same problem.)
Hooray for google!
I found the answer here: http://www.gpsreview.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4999
"72 Troubleshooting - Screen:
If the touch screen is not responding to your taps properly, calibrate the screen.
Turn the Nuvi off. Then, slide and hold the Power button to the left for about 30 seconds."
After you slide, and hold, the power switch to the left (ON position) for 20-30 seconds, the next screen that comes up should be the calibration screen, telling you to press the dots on the crosshairs.
I recommend using your finger to press the dots, just as you would in your vehicle. I thought I could be more precise using a stylus when I first got the device, but apparently that is what caused the problem in the first place.
Live & Learn!
FWIW -- I have the Garmin Nuvi 200 (not 200W).
I don't know why this problem is listed under 76Cx.

Hold your finger on the top left corner of the screen while turning it on. Release the power button when you see the Garmin logo pop up but keep your finger on the top left corner until the white calibration screen shows.

There should be a black dot to press on the calibration screen. Keep pressing the dot as it moves around the screen, you may need to press very firmly and use a stylus until it says calibration complete.
This usually occurs when a unit is dropped or left in extreme temperatures or jammed it a glove box or console with things jammed against the screen. It could also occur if you are touching the screen as you start.
Thanks for using FixYa
