I have the same problem essentially. The only thing I can do is pan left and right in map mode. I can't access any of the buttons that appear onscreen as the touch screens calibration (or something) seems wacked out. The only time the unit functions even remotely normal is if its *VERY* hot. Almost too hot to touch. Anyone have a solution?

Garmin 2460 software reset


Hello,

There are 2 different reset modes, a soft reset and a hard reset.

A soft reset is done by holding down the power button for at least 10 seconds and letting the Nuvi restart.

A hard reset will return the Nuvi to factory specification and will clear all user data like the favorites.

Hard Reset:
1.Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
2.Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
3.Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
4.Release the power button when the device powers ON. You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
5.Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
6.Touch Yes
The device will automatically reset. Follow the on screen prompts.

The soft reset is done by holding down the power button for at least 10 seconds and allowing the unit to power back 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 touch screen may need recalibration.

Keep pressing the top left corner of the screen until the calibration screen appears.
Use a stylus or the round back part of a pen to press the dots to calibrate.

My TomTom GO 630 is frozen on locating a GPS signal. How do I reset


Mine does this about once every couple of weeks. It just requires a "soft reset." To do this you just take a pin or paper clip and press the reset button located on the bottom of the TomTom Go 630 to the left of where you plug in your charger/usb connector. This is a "soft reset." None of your settings are changed... it's just like rebooting your computer. It just clears your temporary memory (like RAM) so all it would possibly lose is your current route if you had just set one. You probably can't since yours is frozen but DO NOT go through your device menu screens and "reset to default" because you will lose all of your settings and saved locations that way.

My GPS just stopped responding to touch.


can you soft or hard re-boot your GPS?

Frozen


doing a soft reset does not erase your information. Only hard resetting. For future reference, you can backup all your favorites etc using the mapsource (from the garmin website) Then if you ever do lose your imformation, you can reinstall it. 

Hard reset Just FYI:

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.

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.
