Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver
My Garmin comes on and then after showing the "Garmin" start up it goes to a blank white screen with a little black dot in the bottom left corner and it says "press dot". But I press the dot and nothing happens. It is stuck on this screen.
The actual answer is to press the dots, but use a dull plastic tool that fits "within" the dot. Otherwise the width of your finger is too imprecise to calibrate the dots and screen.
Hope you, and others, get this and try it. It works. I just discovered it and did it, successfully after only about 10 presses.

I found the answer on another site and it worked! You need to use a plastic tool that is smaller than the dot. (I used the corner tip of a plastic ruler.) Very precisely touch the dot WITHIN the dot, do not overlap on to the white space. After about 6 - 10 times - Voila! It's fixed! It's some kind of calibration function. What I thought might take hours to figure out was fixed within a minute thanks to some valuable people who gave me the answer. I wanted to pay it forward!

OMG!!!! For months I have not been able to get past the "press dot" screen - the people who offered the advice of something plastic and not bigger than the dot - were exactly right!! It works again!!! Thank you sooo much!!! After about 5 "press the dots" - it recalibrated etc... I am happy again!!!

Have you tried pressing the dot? Press all of them until the screen has been calibrated and hopefully you'll come back to a main menu.

July, 2012: Nuvi screen stuck - white back with black dots and direction to 'press dot'. I tried everything I read on-line (including here) with no results. next morning I took it to Radio Shack (N Main, Prov RI) where I bought it thinking need new GPS fast (business reasons) and techie took it, turned it on and played some kind of game with the dots, like he were playing PacMan. Bingo. GPS screen came up 'recalibrated' and works fine. Advice: go to amazing techie at Radio Shack in Prov RI. Run, don't walk. :)
