Give the screen a thorough cleaning with a soap and water cloth (NOT SOAKING) and allow to completely air dry. Then try recalibrating.

Stuck in preview mode


If the back button does not work, power off the Approach.

Connect the Approach to your computer and try running the Garmin WebUpdater to load or reload the latest version of software. This will resolve most issues.

Power it back on and try doing a screen calibration by pressing the wrench in the bottom right corner and arrow down and press Calibrate Screen. Press on the dots using a stylus or the round part on the back of a plastic pen.

Garmin 1100lm locked in press dot game?

Your unit is in calibration mode. There should be a black dot to press on the calibration screen. Keep pressing the dot as it moves around the screen, you may need to press very firmly and use a stylus until it says calibration complete.
This usually occurs when a unit is dropped or left in extreme temperatures or jammed it a glove box or console with things jammed against the screen. It could also occur if you are touching the screen as you start.

White "press dot" screen

The actual answer is to press the dots, but use a dull plastic tool that fits "within" the dot. Otherwise the width of your finger is too imprecise to calibrate the dots and screen.

Hope you, and others, get this and try it. It works. I just discovered it and did it, successfully after only about 10 presses.

My garmin 760 screen reads "press dot".


All you need to do is use a ds pen (or something that is plastic and will fit within the black dot) - our fingers are to big for the calibration. Ive just fixed mine. It should correct its self within 10 dots and away you go again :)

Garmin Nuvi 350 Calibration Issue

Turn the unit off. Press and hold down the power button and keep holding it. You will see the screen light up and it will say "pre-boot mode". Keep holding down the power key. It will then say "booting". Keep holding the power button down. You'll then come to the calibation screen. Select the dots and you'll be back in business.

Have you tried performing a soft reset by pressing the reset button on the back of the unit, then turning it on again?

How about a hard reset?

With the unit powered off, hold your finger on the upper right- hand corner of the touch screen and tap the power key. Continue to hold your finger on the screen until you get a warning message. Tap "OK" to reboot the GPS.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Try to calibrate the touch screen. Push and hold the power button on until you see a white dot on the screen. This is the calibration mode. Touch the dot and another dot will apppear, now touch this dot again, keep doing this until the unit reboot.

If you touch the 1st dot and nothing happens then the digitizer on the LCD is dead. If the unit is still under warranty, get a RMA and return it to Garmin.

Garmin nuvi 200 wont calibrate

I think I just solved this!
(I had the same problem.)

Hooray for google!
I found the answer here:

"72 Troubleshooting - Screen:
If the touch screen is not responding to your taps properly, calibrate the screen.
Turn the Nuvi off. Then, slide and hold the Power button to the left for about 30 seconds."

After you slide, and hold, the power switch to the left (ON position) for 20-30 seconds, the next screen that comes up should be the calibration screen, telling you to press the dots on the crosshairs.

I recommend using your finger to press the dots, just as you would in your vehicle. I thought I could be more precise using a stylus when I first got the device, but apparently that is what caused the problem in the first place.
Live & Learn!

FWIW -- I have the Garmin Nuvi 200 (not 200W).
I don't know why this problem is listed under 76Cx.
