Touch screen doesn't work


The touchscreeen must be replaced. Over time, they can drift beyond the ability to recalibrate it. If you want to try and recalibrate it, here is the procedure.

If you find that the unit will not recalibrate, then you must replace the touchscreen. More info on that is here:

Touch screan does not work on nuvi 760. Everything else works. Does not respond when touching screens. Can't change menus


Hello,

Try performing a soft reset or a hard reset to the unit.
The soft reset is done by holding the and sliding the power button on for at least 10 seconds and allowing the unit to power on.
A hard reset is done by pressing and holding the bottom right hand corner of the screen while the power is off and then pressing the power button on. A pop up will appear asking to confirm the reset.
The hard reset will erase the user data, so it is advisable to save the data if possible.
Installing and running the Garmin WebUpdater to load or reload the latest update will resolve most issues.

How do I change the country on my Garmin nuvi 255W?


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Stuff happens. Try this:

This may be a result of a previous software version on a device or possibly some one changing the settings. If a device does power on with a foreign language that you can not understand it can be corrected by going through the settings to change the text language.
To change the text language:
  1. Touch Wrench icon on the screen with the Magnifying Glass and Map icon
  2. Touch the Gears icon
  3. Touch the down arrow
  4. Touch the second option from the top1
  5. Touch the middle blue box on right
  6. Touch the up arrow until American English appears2
  7. Touch American English
  8. Touch OK
  9. Touch Back
The device should be in selected text language.
Note 1 - In some cases, if there are Custom POIs loaded to the device then it may be the first option at the top.
Note 2 - If American English is not the language needed, please selected the desired language

The bottom right hand corner of my garmin nuvi does not respond. all the images appear but when i touch the screen, it does not respond.


Sounds like the cable connector to the touch sensitive piece of the screen may be loose. (easily happens if the unit is knocked).

Try taking the unit apart (with care and the right type of screwdriver) and reseating the connector just behind the screen.

Holding the on/off key down for a while will force it to the re-boot/recalibrate screen.

This will probably invalidate your warranty so beware.

GPS touch screen sprayed with Windex; doesn't work.


After reading sharcnet's reply yesterday that putting the unit in the freezer was absolutely the wrong solution, I was very panicked! However, once the unit thawed out it worked fine. We tried the freezer because we've used that tip before to "freeze-dry" cell phones that got wet. Luckily the LCD was not damaged & everything is working fine now. And my husband knows not to spray Windex on any electronic screen!

I purchased a NAVMAN S-150 GPS In-Car Unit last week from ****-smith online shop. I have been testing this device for several days now. Why is it that the various touch screen buttons respond differently...


I have the same problem, the s150 touch screen is pathetic, Got the same story from Strathfield Car Radio..it was normal and had it in for repairs twice when the screen went crazy with vertical lines, same fault both times. I went back to using my s50 and will sell the s150, it is a highly complex, very pretty lemon. They wont refund you or give map upgrades for inconvenience caused by their faulty product. To sum the s150 up. A truly Miserable experience. Rate it out of ten? its a minus.
