There is a quick, easy way to reset your Nuvi, but it will result in loss of all saved points. If at all possible, back up your data files first! To reset, do the following:

  1. Turn the unit off.
  2. Hold your finger (or eraser end of a pencil) in the lower right corner of the touch screen.
  3. Turn the unit on, keeping your finger in the lower right corner.
  4. After a few seconds, a screen will appear asking if you want to reset.
  5. [REPEAT: YOU WILL LOSE SAVED DATA.] Select Yes. The unit will reset.

Only one and you wont like it....
The chip is possibly damaged and is expensive to repair. Not generally considered a warranty job so thye bin is your cheapest way to avoid costs.
Always avoid plugging in GPS and starting engine. plu in after engine started, helps preserve the chip and the other sensitive components

See the FAQ on Marbella Australia, most of their tips pertain to all GPS units that othr companies would do well to provide, rather than making money from repairs due to no information!

Of course it's still frozen because the touchscreen is defective. If your unit's serial # begins with a 12P, 14V or 143, then you have a style of touchscreen that can fail. Please see this link for more info.

Hello,

I would suggest you reset the unit,if that doesn't solve the problem, then you will have to update your garmin nuvi, I think its out of date and needs to be updated. Follow the procedures below on how to update your garmin nuvi:

1. Plug one end of the USB cable into your GPS and the other end into your desktop or laptop computer. The GPS device will load the appropriate driver automatically, and a message on your GPS tells you that it is connected to your computer via USB.
2. Open your Internet browser of choice and type in the following web addres: "http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 "
3. Download the appropriate version of the software for your computer (Windows or Apple) and Install the WebUpdater by following the wizard (accept defaults).
4. Click "Start," "Programs," "Garmin" and " WebUpdater" to update your firmware and your maps. Periodically check and make sure your software is current.

Also, in case you don't know how to reset your garmin nuvi, you can follow the steps below: There are two types of reset;

Performing a Standard Reset

1. Slide the power switch all the way to the left (with the Nuvi's screen facing you).
2. Hold the switch in the position for at least eight seconds.
3. Push the switch to the right to power the Nuvi back on.

Performing a Factory Reset

1. Turn your Nuvi off by sliding the power switch to the left.
2. Press your finger against the bottom right corner of the touchscreen. Hold your finger in this position.
3. Slide the power switch to the right to turn the Nuvi back on. Continue to hold you finger against the screen until you see the factory reset prompt. Tap "Yes" to perform the factory reset.

Take care.

Touch Screen on my Garmin doesn't work


I believe simply pushing the reset button will fix your problem. The reset is located under the frame around the screen. To remove the frame, use your finger nail to carefully lift it off the screen. Then just push the reset button and you should be back in business.

please rate my answer as a fixya! Thanks.

Screen is frozen


Are you saying that nothing at all happens every time, or sometimes you get the wrong thing i.e. you touch Prog and Rep screen comes up? Have you ever recalibrated your screen? This should be done regularly - at least every six months, but I do mine monthly. The catch is that in order to do this, you need to access the Set Menu and if your screen is not responding at all this would be impossible. In the Set Menu on the last page (I think) there is a "Color Touch Screen Adjust" button. Use this to access the calibration screen, and you must touch exactly in the centre of the two crosshairs until they turn green. Instructions are on Page 31 of my manual.
