SOURCE: Nuvi 885 touch screen won't work

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

SOURCE: I purchased a NAVMAN S-150

I have the same problem, the s150 touch screen is pathetic, Got the same story from Strathfield Car Radio..it was normal and had it in for repairs twice when the screen went crazy with vertical lines, same fault both times. I went back to using my s50 and will sell the s150, it is a highly complex, very pretty lemon. They wont refund you or give map upgrades for inconvenience caused by their faulty product. To sum the s150 up. A truly Miserable experience. Rate it out of ten? its a minus.

Ipod touch screen is unresponsive but it makes sounds like normal


Fix an Unresponsive Ipod Screen
Many of today's electronic devices including cell phones, music players and portable game systems have a touch screen.
When a touch screen fails, it does not respond when you tap it with your finger or a stylus.
This can happen due to several reasons, such as a screen protector, dust or improper calibration.
You can often fix an unresponsive touch screen by cleaning it or resetting the device.
Remove the plastic touch screen protector sheet.
Some protector sheets are too thick and prevent the touch screen from responding to your touch. If you must use a protector screen, only use one that is licensed for your specific device.
Wipe the screen with a soft microfiber cloth.
Clean off any dirt, dust or fingerprints on the screen.

Dry your hands thoroughly.
The touch screen will not respond if your hands are wet.
Reset the device.
If your device does not have a "Reset" button, remove the battery, memory card or SIM card, then reinstall them.

Delete any third-party applications you recently installed.
Some third-party applications can cause your device to lock up or freeze.

Recalibrate the touch screen.
Look in the device's Settings menu for a calibration option and follow the prompts.

iPod touch: Hardware troubleshooting
If this fails to fix the problem
Press the "On/Off-Sleep/Wake" button and hold it for a few seconds, until a red slider appears. Press the "Home" button until the frozen app quits.
If this doesn't work, you can try restarting the iPod touch.
Press the "On/Off-Sleep/Wake" button if you need to restart the iPod touch, and hold it until the red slider appears on the screen.
Slide your finger over the slider to turn off the device.
Press the "On/Off-Sleep/Wake" button and hold it until the iPod touch turns back on.
If you can't turn off the iPod touch, you can try resetting it.
Press the "On/Off-Sleep/Wake" button while simultaneously pressing the "Home" button when you want to reset the iPod touch, and continue to hold the buttons for at least 10 seconds, until the screen goes black and the Apple logo appears.

I had to buy a new in car charger for my navman s30,but when i plug it in to the sat nav & cigerette socket it keeps showing a computer,usb & navman picture.


  • Turn the Navman off by holding the power button in the upper left corner of the device until the screen goes blank.
  • Plug the unit into its charger using the USB port on the bottom of the unit. The battery indicator light next to the power switch should turn orange, indicating that the device is charging. Once the light has turned green the charge is complete. If the light does not turn on, verify that the car charger is plugged into a working outlet.

My Garmin 660 Nuvi touch screen will not respond I have put in the latest update, held the start button down untill the touch dot calibration shows and tryed the reset button none of this has worked, no...


This is a common problem due to certain style of touchscreen that is known to fail due to temperature. if you can not recalibrate the screen, then the touchscreen needs to be replaced. More information, including the recalibration procedure can be found here:

My DSI opens up but does not responds on the touch screen, left and right button and x / y button. but the camera can take pictures


One time when my dinosoar of a ds was not a dino, I left it plugged in to the wall for a few days. When I went to unplug it and play a game that required the touch screen, it seemed to not know i was touching it. That night I went and bought mario bros. partners in time and played that game (which used buttons and not the screen) until my ds died and I recharged it only for a day and the touch screen worked again.

Another time I went to someones house with 2 little kids and let them play my game. They lost my pen ( and it was a hassel finding a pen small enough to fit in the slot) and started using their fingers. We ate some super buttery popcorn and kept touching the screen with our fingers. The next day the touch screen did not work and my step dad had to use windex 3 times daily for 2 days before it would work.

Make sure you try what I tried a few times. Pretty much any problem you have with the touch screen not responding can be fixed by letting your batteries run out of juice and recharging in a maximum time of 1 day. If this fails you, make sure you are using the bottom screen. You dont know how many people I have met that kept replacing their ds and ended up finding out they were using the wrong screen. Finally, replace the screen, and buttons or just replce the ds or dsi.

Touch screen not responding when using stylus.


Is it just possible you left the Navman mounted on the screen in hot weather whilst away from the vehicle? I made a little white jacket for mine with a heat reflecting liner.

My navman icn 510 is always on SIM


Your Navman is in Demonstration mode and is demonstrating a route that you have set up. It should be flashing SIM alternately with the time taken on the route so far. 
If you don't want the 'Demonstrator' to operate, you can turn it off. See your manual. If you have not got one, you can download it from the Navman site. 
I only have the iCN510 and I have to go to the main Menu screen, tap 'Route Information', then Cancel Route to cancel the current demonstration.
