Most likely the switch is bad. Do you feel it click when you put it back to the center position? Is it in the center position? How does the switch work when you use it to turn the unit on & off? That switch has (2) sections to it.... one for on/off and one for screen lock. It's possible 1/2 of the switch is bad. I've replaced them before.

Unable to unlock Nuvi 780 screen. The slideing button on the top left dosen't work, it lost the grip and just move on either direction with out any action. Please help


Try to remove the battery and re insert it back in to see if it will work. Or hold down the power on/off for about 15 seconds, that should do the job.


If that does not do it, then you have to calibrate the screen. To calibrate the screen, follow the steps below:
  1. Turn off your nuvi,
  2. Press your finger on the upper left corner of the touch screen,
  3. While holding your finger on the touch screen, turn on the nuvi.
  4. Continue to hold your finger on the screen for about 30 seconds until the calibration screen appears(white screen with touch dot),
  5. Then follow the on screen instructions.
That should do the job for you. hope this helps.

I have used Garmin Nuvi 780 for the last one year. But recently the message of "requiring pin #" pops up. I don't have a pin #. What shall I do?


If you have a Garmin Lock on your nuvi, zumo or StreetPilot c500 series and you have forgotten your 4 digit PIN number you can unlock the device by returning to your Security Location. The Security Location is the location that you set when you first enabled the Garmin Lock on your device. Returning to the Security Location will unlock your device.

If you have forgotten your PIN and Security Location please contact Product Support for assistance. Please note we will require a copy of the receipt and there will be a charge to unlock the device as this issue is not covered by the warranty.

To contact Product Support in your area go to http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/supportcontact

No reset on my Garman!!!


Try holding the power switch to the left for 8 seconds, then switch on (soft reset). If that doesn't work, try a hard reset; remove the SD card, hold the bottom right corner of the screen and keep it pressed while you switch the power on. This resets all user data, but if you haven't used it yet, it won't be a problem. Good luck
