Touchscreen not responding. Frozen


Two thing can cause this. If your unit is running firmware version 5.3, this version has a bug where the touchscreen will work for about 5 seconds then the unit will lock up. Updating the unit to version to version 5.4 will fix the problem. More info can be found here:

If you are running firmware version 4.9 or 5.4 and the touchscreen still does not respond, then the touchscreen will need to be replaced. On the Nuvi 7xx, the touchscreen may be soldered to the LCD display, so if you don't have any soldering experience, please have a professional replace the touchscreen. More info can be found here:

You can try order a replacement touchscreen on ebay and replace it yourself

You have a software problem with your NUVI . I recommend you to reset [ restoring default factory settings ] your NUVI

To reset your NUVI , please follow one of these procedures :

............................................................................................
Try this for hard reset .

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen [ Don't let go ] , 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.

After that you can try again with updating .

Only half of the screen appears the other half shows a maze


Reads like the crystal is broken...

It is possible to have  the screen replaced in these devices, however the cost is normally above 50% of the original purchase price, of said device as the touchscreen is the most expensive part.

I never take mine out of the car unless it is in the protective case,(purchased separately) to prevent
this from happening. I've dropped mine twice. The $25 I paid for the case, is priceless given how much our 760 costs!
