I had the same problem and Garmin's answer when I emailed them was...

"There are a few things I would suggest, first we need to updated your
system software (firmware) on the unit. To update your system software
(firmware), download the WebUpdater at www.garmin.com/webupdater.

After this program installs, your unit will need to be attached to the
computer via the USB cable. The WebUpdater will attempt to update itself
and then search for your GPS unit. The program should then recognize the
unit and you will just need to click next and follow the instructions to
update your unit. When the system?s firmware is updated, you will have
the option to update additional software that is present on your unit.
It is best to look at this list as well and check any firmware or GPS
update that are available on this page.

Once the selected updates have download to your device, please
disconnect it from the computer and allow the unit to complete start-up,
during which it will ?unpack? and install all the software updates
downloaded to it.

Secondly, you may want to try a master reset, but be advised that this
may delete your favorites. To back up your Favorites folder, you will
need to connect the nüvi to your computer with the USB cable. Open the
nüvi drive in MyComputer and then open the Garmin folder. Then open the
GPX folder and copy the CURRENT.GPX file to your desktop. If the
Favorites are deleted in the master reset, you can just go back in and
copy the CURRENT.GPX file back into the GPX folder in the nüvi drive.

To perform a master reset, with your nüvi powered off, press and hold
the lower right corner of the screen. Next, turn the power on. Continue
to hold the screen until it asks if you really want to erase all user
data. Select yes. The screen will flicker a bit and then start up like
it did when it was first turned on. Follow the directions to set time
and location. You will have to reacquire satellites by turning on your
nüvi and letting it sit somewhere in full view of the sky. This one time
acquisition may take up to 20-30 minutes. The unit may still ask if you
are indoors or if you are in Kansas. This is normal. Just answer No to
both questions. If you are on the map or satellite data screen, the
green bar at the top will now read "Locating Satellites." Make sure you
leave the nüvi out for the full 20-30 minutes. If you move it or turn it
off early the initialization process may not complete.

After completing the system software (firmware) and master reset, go out
and test the unit, if still having problems, let me know. If you have
any other questions, please email or call us at 1-800-800-1020 from
8am-6pm Central time, Monday through Friday (excluding Holidays)."

It worked for me

Touchscreen not responding


If the touch screen of your phone is not responding to touch then it means you have to calibrate the screen to get it working once again.
To calibrate your screen, be sure that the nuvi is properly charged, then you follow the steps below:
  1. Turn off your nuvi,
  2. Press your finger on the upper left corner of the touch screen,
  3. While holding your finger on the touch screen, turn on the nuvi.
  4. Continue to hold your finger on the screen for about 30 seconds until the calibration screen appears(white screen with touch dot),
  5. Then follow the on screen instructions.
That should do the job for you. hope this helps.

Touch screen not working


Try to remove the battery and insert it back into your gps device and turn it on. If the screen does not still work, then you need to reset the nuvi, by holding down the power button for about 15 seconds, then the unit will restart, that way the touch screen should respond. If it still does not work, then you need to calibrate the screen to get it to work. To calibrate the screen, follow the sreps below:
  1. Turn off your nuvi,
  2. Press your finger on the upper left corner of the touch screen,
  3. While holding your finger on the touch screen, turn on the nuvi,
  4. Continue to hold your finger on the screen for about 30 seconds until the calibration screen appears (white screen with touch dot),
  5. Then follow the on screen instructions.
It might not work trying it once, so you have to try it over time till it works. Calibration is the last resort of all solutions, so if calibrating it does not do the work, then it means it a an internal problem.
