Question about Garmin Nuvi 40Lm - Gps Receiver

1 Answer

I plugged in my Garmin Nuvi 40LM to the computer and got the updates. But my keyboard is still not responding correctly. I push 5 and get a 6 or push T and get a Y. Any ideas?

I thought doing an update would correct the issues. The GPS has been indoors overnight, so it is not cold. I can't find a place to stick a pen to reset it.

Try recalibrating the display. Turn off the Nuvi. Place your finger on the upper left-hand corner of the screen and hold it there while pushing down on the power button to turn the unit on. Release the power button when the Garmin logo appears. Continue to press on the upper left-hand corner of the screen until you see the calibration screen.

Press all of the dots as they are presented. Once completed the Nuvi will display Calibration Complete

This will recalibrate your touchscreen to the LCD display. If this doesn't resolves your problem. then your touchscreen may be defective.

Go to the Garmin site and download and install Garmin Express. Plug your GPS into your PC. The program should identify the GPS and allow you to select from the available updates.

My gps 40lm is froze. I can turn it on and off but all I can get is the Garmin logo. Is there a way to fix it?


I've now had two of these devices fail in exactly this way. It appears that this model is unreliable. Call Garmin and get them to send you another GPS unit--preferably not another 40LM, as that will probably just fail again.

Garmin Nuvi will not respond, to touch of screen and screen indicates that map needs to be updated. What do I do to get it to function again


You need to plug in your Nuvi into your computer, once connected go to www.MyGarmin.com

It will then seek your Nuvi model and ask if you like to update maps or update firmware.

I would update firmware first.

Love my Nuvi 760
