Each Garmin is a little different. There is a icon in the top left that looks like an eraser on most models. Just touch that to erase the character before the cursor.

Other units will have a left pointing arrow with a x in the middle. This is your backspace icon. Since each unit is different I suggest visiting GPSCity and downloading the manual for your specific unit for better clarification.

Try recalibrating the touchscreen. The procedure can be found here:

Press each dot to recalibrate the screen.

Do a screen calibration. There are different ways to get to it depending on which GPS you have but that usually fixes problems like that.

Keys will not function properly

If the buttons on your GPS aren't working at all, your unit is likely defective (obviously). The best course of action is to either get a refund and return the unit to "Century_depot", or see if Garmin can provide you with a replacement. Best of luck.

The only way to unlock a PIN locked Garmin is to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location where the PIN was set. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.

Keying in street addresses

To find streets that are numerical, not names, enter the address normally to start. Enter the State, City, and House Number. When it asks you to enter the street, look at the bottom of the keyboard. You will see a key marked 123. Press this key, and numbers will show up instead of letters. Type in just the numbers (25 for 25th Avenue, etc.) and hit Done. The street should show as (25th (St., Ave., etc)). Press the correct entry.
