    once "press dot" appears, then what? As soon as you let go it disappears and reloads but nothing changed. Is there something else I should be doing?

  • champdog99 Sep 01, 2010

    Okay, I called the company and this does work. Note though, if you have connected it to a power cord from say a camera (because it doesn't come with one other than a car charger) it doesn't provide enough power to the battery and the dot won't stay on long enough to calibrate the screen. You need to plug it into the car. When the dot appears, it actually moves around the screen each time you press it until the screen is calibrated, then it will tell you the calibration is complete and you are then good to go.

Even if you were able to get past the setup, you would still not be able to use the phone. Since you have already performed a factory reset, I would suspect the actual hardware to be faulty. Get it serviced at an authorised service centre

A lot of people are having the same issue after the update. Since you cant connect it to computer, my best advice is to get it replaced unfortunately.

I get no response when i push i agree on first screen


Then you have to calibrate the screen since it is not responding to touch. To calibrate the screen, follow the steps below:
  1. Turn off your nuvi,
  2. Press your finger on the upper left corner of the touch screen,
  3. While holding your finger on the touch screen for about 30 seconds until the calibration screen comes appears (white screen with touch dot),
  4. Follow the on screen instructions.
It is an easy fix. The solution above will help you out on that. Another solution is for you to remove the battery and fix it in back. That should also help.
