Here's an interesting one! My C-330 has a touch screen calibration problem, and if the unit was in regular operating mode, a re-calibration would be easy. The problem is, Garmin, in their want to get more money out of you for updates to the maps, forces a screen to be shown to "remind you" that you should go to their site and spend $70 for a street update. The only way to get out of that screen is to hit a screen touch button in the bottom right which says "OK". Well Garmin, the screen is out of calibration, and the first thing I see when I try to calibrate is your lousy map update screen which I cannot get rid of. MUST I send it to you and spend the money for a few streets which have been built in the past two "economic slowdown" years? or should I go buy a Tom Tom? Does anybody have a better way?

Try to remove the battery and re insert it back in to see if it will work. Or hold down the power on/off for about 15 seconds, that should do the job.
If that does not do it, then calibrate the screen, to calibrate the screen, screen calibration do not just work once you do it, you have to do it over time for it to work. Ensure you are calibrating properly. These are the proper steps to follow when trying to calibrate the screen:
Turn off your nuvi,
Press your finger on the upper left corner of the touch screen,
While holding your finger on the touch screen, turn on the nuvi.
Continue to hold your finger on the screen for about 30 seconds until the calibration screen appears(white screen with touch dot),
Then follow the on screen instructions.
Try this repeatedly till you get it to work. If it does not work, then it means there is an internal problem that need to be checked by a repairman.That should do the job for you. hope this helps.
Hi, I own a Sony Locationfree LF-X1 system with the LF-X1M (monitor). My Touchscreen Stylus Calibration was so far off the map. it was very hard to use, Only Half the Screen height could be affected. I finally attempted to reinstall the firmware update and a message during step 2 said I did not need it because it was already present. Tried it twice with same results. But Good News, It ressetted My calibration in the process. My screen is now calibrated again.
As stated on the site IMPORTANT: This update can only be downloaded and installed with a LocationFree® unit.
PS. It is very hard to define were to press to do anything on Sony support site, I was for the most part off by 2 inches, You will often Have to scroll to the bottom of the page I managed to select:
Software Drivers Option 1 (I managed to select Canada, Then it reloaded th page Then I Selected LF-X1) Then hit Continue ( Not Easy )
Then got transferred to the download page, Agreed to conditions and finally reached the updating step screen as stated above.
Hello there: please follow these instruction and this should help if not let me know and i willcontinue to get you more information for you nstructions
the screen of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the touch screen does not
seem to respond when you hit it with your finger or a stylus, you may
need to calibrate it. To do this, turn the unit off and then hold down
the "Power" key for approximately one minute. You will see a
calibration screen come up that will recalibrate the GPS unit.
the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If your GPS unit is not responding or is
stuck on a particular screen, it may need to be reset in order to
operate. To reset, remove the face plate of the unit by gently prying
it off. Locate the "Reset" button under the face plate and press down
in order to restart the device.
the fuse of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the fuse blows on the GPS,
you will need to make a replacement using an ACG/3AG 2 amp fuse.
Unscrew the adapter cord at the end and remove the fuse found there.
Put in the new fuse to see if this returns function to the unit.
the software for your Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the GPS is not
providing you with correct directional information, you may need to
update the software or download new maps onto the device. Connect the
Garmin StreetPilot C340 with the USB cord to your PC and log on the Garmin website for available updates.
Take the unit outside and turn it on. Then select View Maps, at the top of the screen it will say either "Locating satellites" or "Acquiring Satellites". Once the garmin has locked onto the overhead satellites, then it will say "Ready to Navigate".
Locating Satellites take longer than Acquiring Satellites.
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.
