Hmm have only seen this once and I think I fixed it by doing a screen recalibration.. It is actually overlapping centrally.
Anyway give that a go and let me know if it worked for you.

Where can I order a new battery for NUVI 805 series/


The nuvi and Garmin Drive series devices do not have user replaceable batteries, with a few exceptions. The exceptions include the nuvi 500 series, 800 series, 805 series, and the nuvi 295W.
A replacement battery for the nuvi 500 series can be purchased on the Garmin website here.
The nuvi 800 & 805 series and the nuvi 295W use a replaceable Lithium-ion battery as well. Although the replacement battery for these devices is no longer available via the Garmin website, you may be able to purchase a replacement through a variety of dealers.
All other nuvi models do not have user replaceable batteries. These devices must be sent in to a Garmin approved repair facilities if a battery issue arises. Garmin International is the only approved repair facility in the United States and Canada. To request a repair for your device through Garmin, contact support.
If you are experiencing battery problems visit the following FAQ: How do I charge my automotive GPS device?

How to change the voice on garmin 750? /


Press the wrench/tools button at the main menu. Select the icon with the lips (language). You should see (2) buttons labeled American English. The first one makes all of the text on the Nuvi in the English alphabet. The second button is for the voice. If it just says "American English", then it will only say "Left" or "Right". Press this button and select a TTS voice (Text to Speech), like Jill, Jack, Daniel.....etc.

Missing letters from my alphabet


You will most likely need a firmware upgrade from this website to fix the problem: http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
It will walk you through the steps and your letters should be back to normal after the update.

THE USB PORT THAT MY GARMIN NUVI 270 IS PLUGGED IN TO IS NOT RECOGNIZED BY MY COMPUTER


If they don't give you a new one under warranty, are third party Garmin repair services that will fix it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI GPS repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult to solder in a new USB port.

My garmin nuvi 250 special edition comes up with a scrambled alphabet. Some duplication and some letters missing and one blank space. A@BDEFG @ JKHMN MPQRPTU VWXXZ Can it somehow be reset,...


Hey... I found a USB cable that fit my Nuvi and then downloaded updated system software from Garmin's support site. It included a bug fix for corrupted keyboards. After running the update, it works! My keyboard is all correct again.

Garmin nuvi 200w my alphabet is sometimes missing letters. what do i do?


I just this moment resolved this problem with Garmin's Tech Support. Here's what to do:

1. Turn off your NUVI.
2. Find a standard USB cable with a mini connector on one end.
3. Connect the NUVI to a booted computer (I did this with a Windows computer) and let the computer recognize the GPS as a MASS STORAGE DEVICE.
4. AFTER the Nuvi has been recognized as a hard drive, correctly disconnect the GPS from the computer.
5. The Nuvi will turn on in locked mode. Follow the on screen instructions to unlock it.

Your problem should be resolved. The technician I spoke to said that this procedure fixes the problem 99% of the time.

Good luck.
