Question about Garmin StreetPilot 7200 GPS Receiver
After owning this unit for 18 month, now out of warranty, I have this recurring problem where it is as if someone is remotely pushing the menu button on my touch screen. You can hear the tick, tick, tick and the screen will end up on “Save As Favorite” screen, at which point the touch screen will not respond when any button such as BACK or Menu is pressed. I have to power down the unit several times, or unplug the power to reboot the unit. This works sometimes and will bring me to the Touch Screen Calibration screen, which may fail to calibrate until the third attempted. I have updated to the newest map 2008 software but the problem still pops up. Anybody else have this problem, Garmin wants $350 to repair their SteetPilot 7200 ouch!
As a last resort, you can try a master reset. With the unit off hold your finger on the power key for approximately 15 seconds until you see a message "This operation will erase all waypoints, do you want to continue?"
Tap yes and the unit should reboot then attempt to acquire satellites. You will lose any favorites you have saved but it may save you a trip to the factory.
If the problem persists I would say you have a problem with the internal circuits and repair is the only option.
