I have a Garmin Nuvi 650 with an unresponsive screen...can anything be done? Thanks

Power off your Garmin 660 unit. Press on continuously the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
To back up your Garmin.
  • From the garmin drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  • After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Garmin, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  • On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Garmin where they are actually stored

  • This should reset your Garmin then I would suggest updating your device at the Garmin site. I will attach a link.

    Garmin is unresponsive. Won't power up or turn

    I have a Garmin c340 that would not turn on.
    I found the hidden reset button and it works now.

    With the display unit facing you, the aluminum cover plate has the the word GARMIN on it. Use you fingernail under the word Garmin and the cover plate comes off. The left part of the cover stays attached to GPS and the right side lifts up exposing the RESET button. I pressed RESET and POWER together and it works now.

    Garmin 775T screen is frozen

    If you hold the power button down for about 4 seconds or so, it should ask you if you want to power off. If the screen is still unresponsive, if you hold the power button down for 10 seconds, it will hard reset the device, powering it off with no screen input needed. At that point, I would check the firmware and make sure that it's up to date, as well as try to figure out how old the battery in the device is as well and consider replacing that as well.

    My garmin nuvi 670 touch screen is not calibrated

    Have you tried using the screen calibration command? Press the Wrench symbol, then the Display symbol and then Calibrate screen. Press the dots as it tells you to and you should now have a calibrated touchscreen.
