    Below is Garmin's response. I can't believe they want $110 to fix it. I paid $500 for it 1 year ago at Costco. Costco no help. Garmin no help. I'll check for a different manufacturer on eBay.

    Thank you for contacting Garmin International.

    I would be happy to assist you with that. If the touchscreen is not working on that unit, then it would not be able to be calibrated, so it would need to be set up for a repair. The unit is out of warranty, so it would have a repair fee of, $110. If you decide on a repair, I cannot set it up through email since there is a payment due.

    With Best Regards,

Try reseting the nuvi, there is a reset button on the bottom or on the back, some models have it on the front under the display cover.

if that doesn't help the digitizer which is the part on top of the lcd display that registers the touch could have failed and may need to be replaced.

I haven't seen many garmin repairers, you might have to get in touch with garmin about it, check ebay for replacement parts but if I remember correctly garmin takes care of it and don't distripute much parts.

Nuvi 680 screen is frozen


Hello,

I would suggest you reset the unit, if that doesn't solve the problem, then you will have to update your nuvi.

Frozen nuvi is as result of software problem. So you either reset or update. Update helps to reinstall the operating system file of the nuvi, thereby, putting it back to order.

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.

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.

Please let me know if non of the above solves your problem so that I can help you further.

Good luck.

Hi,

I will suggest you reset your GPS, to reset your gps, follow this steps, turn off your device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen, and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase 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.
Once the GPS unit is reset, remember to place the device outside where there is a clear unobstructed view of the sky for 15 to 30 minutes in order for it to requires fix to GPS satellites. with this, the problem should be rectify.

The screen in my garmin nuvi 680 is no work


You will need to recalibrate your screen. If the screen is not working at all, you can go search for the support article at Garmin. Use the keywords touchscreen and 600. This may temporarily fix the problem, but if you have a lemon, the touchscreen may need to be replaced. (The solution is also posted at this site from other users.)

Unit touchscreen works randomly after update


Updating the firmware may have replaced the calibration settings.
You've a menu from where you can run re-calibration again.
It will ask for 4 or 6 points to click, and that's it.

My 2 year old Garmin Nuvi 680's touch screen no longer responds. I have tried "re-booting" but that doesn't work. Is there anything else I could try?


there's not much you can do if the screen is not responding.
the solution is to replace the touchscreen preferably at a specialized center.
