What is wrong with the screen when it says to Touch Dot?


You can just use a plastic pen or anything with a nib to press it, instead of using your finger. After pressing 5 to 6 times it should work

The screen on my Garmin nuvi 205 sat nav keeps going blank, although I can still see and hear that it is working. What is wrong and can I get it fixed?


Try resetting your nuvi by holding the power button for 8 or more seconds see page 42of owners manual.
Have you tried a touch screen calibration? Here is the procedure:
Turn off your Nuvi. Then hold the upper left corner of the screen firmly while turning it back on.Release the power key when the Garmin screen appears.
I have attached a link to the owners manual which explains this procedure on page 41.
Thanks for using FixYa

My Garmin Nuvi 205 touch screen will not work. I've calibrated multiple times but the screen is still not interactive


Hello,

It sounds like your screen has died on the unit and will need to be sent in for warranty, if it past the unit 1 year manufacturers warranty it is usually cheaper to get a new more up to date unit.

Hope this helps!

Touch screen on my garmin nuvi 205 stopped responding


If the touch screen is not working properly, calibrate the touch screen.

Turn Nuvi off and then back on.

Slide power key to the right (lock). Hold your finger on the screen for about 30 seconds until the calibration screen appears.

Follow the directions on screen instructions

My touch screen will not work anymore. I tried


May I recommend performing a 'Hard Reset' (different from the reset button), or replacing the firmware of your Nuvi 205?

Both actions have been known to solve the symptoms you are reporting.

I hope that helps.

Garmin Nuvi 205 screen freezes


When a Garmin Nuvi 205 stops working or behaves strangely, there are two steps you can take yourself to try and get it going again:

  1. Perform a Hard Reset,
  2. Run WebUpdater to reinstall that firmware.

I hope that helps.

Not touch sensative


In 90% of the cases it's the digitizer (the touch sensor that is mounted in front of the screen). You can try to replace it yourself or send it to a third party gps repair service.
