Have you tried performing a soft reset by pressing the reset button on the back of the unit, then turning it on again?

How about a hard reset?

With the unit powered off, hold your finger on the upper right- hand corner of the touch screen and tap the power key. Continue to hold your finger on the screen until you get a warning message. Tap "OK" to reboot the GPS.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Try to calibrate the touch screen. Push and hold the power button on until you see a white dot on the screen. This is the calibration mode. Touch the dot and another dot will apppear, now touch this dot again, keep doing this until the unit reboot.

If you touch the 1st dot and nothing happens then the digitizer on the LCD is dead. If the unit is still under warranty, get a RMA and return it to Garmin.
