SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 660 touch screen freezes up. Soft

I sat on the phone for 30 minutes waiting for Garmin support when my Nuvi suddenly had no touch screen response. They had me delete a file on the device (with it hooked to my computer) then reboot and it went thru a touch screen alignment and it worked.

Sadly, it has frozen again and I don't recall the file (it had been a GCD file in all caps, that is all I know and I don't see a file in all caps any more). I will be calling support tomorrow.

My take is that it *is* a firmware thing *and* there is some way to reset the firmware.

My garmin nuvi 660 touch screen dosen't work


To calibrate the touchscreen on a nuvi 300 or 600 series:
  1. Power the unit On.
  2. From the Where to? / View map screen, touch Settings (wrench icon).
  3. Touch Display.
  4. Touch Recalibrate.
  5. A new screen will display that says Press Dot.
  6. Touch the center of the dot.
  7. Keep touching the center of the dot as it moves around the screen.
  8. When Calibration Complete appears on the screen, please touch OK.
The touchscreen will now be recalibrated.

If your touchscreen is not responding to any touch and preventing you from recalibrating the touchscreen using the instructions above, please follow the steps below:
  1. Connect your nuvi to your computer with a compatible USB cable.
  2. Open the Garmin Nuvi drive located in MyComputer/Computer. (Note: Mac users can locate the Garmin Nuvi drive icon on the Desktop.)
  3. Open the Garmin folder.
  4. Locate and delete the GUPDATE.GCD file.1
  5. Safely disconnect your nuvi from your computer.
  6. Power the nuvi Off.
  7. Power the nuvi on by holding the power button.
  8. Continue holding the power button down for 1-2 minutes until the screen calibration option displays.
  9. Touch the center of the dot as it moves around the screen.
  10. When Calibration Complete appears on the screen, please touch OK.

The touchscreen will now be recalibrated and should respond properly.

Garmin nuvi 660 froze up.


This is not caused by an update. Please check your unit's serial # to see if it starts with a "12P", "14V" or "143". If so, these units have a specific touchscreen that can fail even without physical damage to the glass or screen. The only way to resolve it is to replace the touchscreen & glass. You will not lose any of your data. The unit is not frozen and you can verify it by quickly pressing the on/off button. If you hear a beep, it's not locked up. You touchscreen has failed and won't accept any input. Please see this link:

Not touch sensative


In 90% of the cases it's the digitizer (the touch sensor that is mounted in front of the screen). You can try to replace it yourself or send it to a third party gps repair service.

My garmin nuvi 670 touch screen is not calibrated


Have you tried using the screen calibration command? Press the Wrench symbol, then the Display symbol and then Calibrate screen. Press the dots as it tells you to and you should now have a calibrated touchscreen.

Garmin Nuvi 670 has frozen and will not switch off. I have held down the power switch for ages and this has no effect. Just got a locked screen of where it froze.


with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.
