Touch Screen and Remote Problem

My touch screen is working 75% of the time, the other 25% it will not let you select random letters or numbers, it will select the letter or number next to the one you are trying to select. Using the remote was letting me work around this problem but now my remote has stopped working completely.

Re: Touch Screen and Remote Problem

My Remote would not work, but touchscreen did.

1. Select the option to "Reset all Settings"
2. Select "Turn off remote" on the touch screen
3. Turn off the 2620 itself.
4. Turn on the 2620.
5. Select "Turn on remote"

This caused my remote to resume working.

Re: Touch Screen and Remote Problem

I just kept resetting my the calibration and the entire system. Finally my remote works 100%, so even though my touchscreen calibration is still off I can now put in everything I need to navigate with my remote. My remote was totally dead.

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.

How do i realign my touch screen?

On the main screen when your GPS boots up there will be a little wrench Icon in the lower right part of the screen. Touch this and go in to Setup. You will find a utility in there to adjust the screen touch targets. Be real careful when doing the calibration and your GPS will work like new.

Problems with keyboard, I want to press an "A" and an "H" comes u

I don't have a Nuvi 2xx with me at the moment but on a 3xx & 6xx series, press the wrench symbol and then the display icon and select recalibrate screen and go through the process and touch the dots as it tells you to do. This will recalibrate the touch screen.

Malfunctioning GPS


You may have dust particles or similar trapped under the touch membrain. This would cause random selection and result in the problem your'e describing. It's often the case that small particles can be trapped just under the edges of the screen by getting under the screen surround( bezel ).

Another similar problem can also occur if the TomTom is left in a cold car overnight after a warm / hot day where moisture can form under the touch screen membrain. This moisture can move around making random inputs to the screen.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck

Messed up with garmin

(1) Disconnect any external GPS antenna. (2) Do not turn on auto engine. (3) Turn off any other peripheral devices. (4) Simultaneusly hold down the PAGE and MENU buttons while turning on the 2620. A prompt box will appear asking if you really want to delete all user data. Touch the NO selection. Then turn off the 2620. (5) Simultaneously hold down MENU & ROUTE buttons while turning on the 2620. (6) A self-running diagnostic program will appear. Allow it to run for a couple of minutes; check to see that all parameters indicate "PASS" or other indication of being OK. If any parameter is not OK, make a note of it for potential communication to Garmin, then proceed with the following steps (7) Turn off the 2620. (8) Simultaneously hold down the PAGE, MENU & ROUTE buttons while turning on the 2620. A SCREEN CALIBRATION adjustment screen will apear. Quickly touch the points indicated as the calibration program runs. At the end of this procedure, the screen will display a window indicating that the calibration either "PASSED" or "FAILED." If it "PASSED," continue to steps (8)-(9). If it "FAILED," turn off the 2620 and repeat this step. If, after three calibrations attempts, each one is "FAILED," then also turn off the 2620 and proceed to steps (8)-(9). (8) Turn on the 2620. Press the "OK" button each time prompted to do so. Wait for maps to load and for the 2620 to initialize, acquire satellites, and display your position. (9) Press FIND button, then touch the right-hand vertical screen position adjustment to scroll screen display down to reveal WAYPOINT selection box. If unable to select WAYPOINT, or if attempting to do so only selects an adjacent box, then repeat step (7), and return to this step. (10) When various waypoint selections appear, attempt to scroll down to a selection not visible when the list of waypoints first appears, and select one of them. If still unable to select WAYPOINT box, unable to scroll screen down (or if trying to do so selects a stored waypoint instead), once again repeat step (7). If successful,then proceed to step (11). Also proceed to step (11) if you have repeat step (7) but then still can't select WAYPOINT, can't scroll down after selecting WAYPOINT, or can't select a particular stored WAYPOINT. (11) Press the upper-right hand "X" to close out the FIND screen or sub-screen within that function. If unable to close the screen, press the PAGE button. (12) Press FIND button, and when selection screen appears, touch ADDRESS. On next screen, touch the STATE line and touch the ENTER A CITY in (name of state). When keyboard appears on screen, use it to enter your city, then touch OK. Continue this procedure to enter your house number and street name, then press "OK." If all screen keyboard keys not responding, repeat step (7), turn the 2620 off and on again, wait for it to initialize, and then attempt this step again. (13) Repeat this procedure several times if not initially successful. By the second or third run-through, the touch screen should respond fully and accurately. If, after many runs through this procedure, the touch screen still will not respond, the screen sensor probably will need to be replaced ($255). The foregoing procedure brought my touch screen back to life last evening, much to my delight. Do not be too concerned if the SCREEN CALIBRATION step does nto produce a "PASS;" on my third calibration attempt it produced a PASS but all of the touch screen points still had not returned to functionality. I was unable to get a PASS during the screen calibration step after that, but the many repetitions apparently nonetheless made the difference, as by patiently following the above prcoess for five cycles, full screen functionality was restored.
