I depends on what you cleaned it with.

Any high value solvent cleaner will quite possibly damage it as will anythin abrasive or lots of water.

Suggest leave it for a few hours in a warm (not hot) dry places and make sure it is turned off.

If it does not dry out and still fails to work your next best bet is a replacement touch screen from EBAY.

One day my nuvi 245 continues to show "press dot". So I keep pressing dot only for somewhile because after just 1 second from "turning on" touch screen does not work. That means even...


Your touch sensitive screen may have failed. The touch sensitive screen is a thin transparent film that is secured over the front of the display screen.

When it fails, you can no longer select or input anything into the GPS via screen. This of course renders the GPS pretty much useless. Garmin will exchange your defective GPS with a factory refurbished unit with the latest maps and provide a 90 warranty for many GPS units. The Nuvi 250 service cost is $69. I could not find your Nuvi245 model listed so you might want to contact Garmin directly to see what the replacement cost will be.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Clean the screen with a clean soft cotton cloth is the step #1

Step 2:
SEE FULL instruction HERE

Calibrate the touch screen
The command buttons and fields are displayed on the screen image at specific pixel points. To initiate a response, the touch screen interface needs to recognize exactly where a fingertip or pen touches the screen relative to the pixel position of the display. Each user has a slightly different hand-eye coordination response. Calibrating the touch screen allows the interface to compensate between where the program is expecting a touch and where the touch actually occurs. To calibrate the touch screen, place the tablet notebook in the desired orientation and do the following actions.
  1. Click or tap Start > Control Panel > Tablet PC Settings to open the Table PC Settings window.
  2. On the General tab, select the option to display the menus in either the Right-handed or Left-handed position.
  3. On the General tab, select the desired screen orientation from the drop-down menu, and click or tap Calibrate . Follow the instruction to touch the screen at the specified points. Repeat this calibration action for all four of the screen orientations, then click or tap Apply .
  4. On the Handwriting Recognition tab, select the Use the handwriting personalization option.
  5. At a later time, you can return to review the Go to Pen and Input Devices and Go to Input Panel Settings options to make using the touch screen to control programs and input text easier and more accurate.




Compare your version of the firmware to the latest one at HP offical site HERE

Always get the latest firmware to avoid problem.

Always keep the screen clean!

The touch screen is not working properly when you


Turn the unit off and make sure the power cable is disconnected as well, get a good SCREEN cleaner. Not the same as Windex or other product. Clean the screen well, you need to get rid of the oils and dirt on the screen. Once you are finished and the unit has been dried off power the unit back up and in one of the submenus you will find a screen calibration option. Use this and you should then be finished and the unit should go where you touch. Hope this helps

Raynav 300 the gps is not working


The GPS antenna with the 300 is not a GPS receiver unit like all the later Raymarine units and is no longer made. However the unit will accept input from a GPS receiver with Seatalk output. So you could use a 112, 120 or 125 receiver.
