No signal how do I fix it


You have not said what model garmin nuvi ?
The touchscreen on a Garmin nuvi GPS usually loses sensitivity or stops responding if it's lost calibration.
This usually happens after prolonged usage.
Touchscreen problems are also caused by dirt, smudges and improper care.
If your Garmin nuvi's screen isn't performing as expected, Garmin provides solutions and tips to not only improve the device's performance, but prevent premature wear and tear.
Calibrating the Screen

If the Garmin nuvi's touchscreen isn't working, you need to calibrate the screen.
Calibration resets and repositions the screen for optimal performance without deleting saved settings.
Before calibrating the screen, press and hold the "Power" button to turn off the device.
Pressing and holding the "Power" button again for about 30 seconds automatically displays the calibration screen.
Pressing the dot on the white screen calibrates the touchscreen automatically.

Updating Software.
If The Garmin nuvi's touchscreen is still unresponsive, updating the device's firmware to the latest version can solve operating system problems that lead to touchscreen problems.
Before updating the device's firmware, connect the GPS to the computer using the USB cable. When the computer detects the GPS, the "AutoPlay" menu appears on the screen.
Tapping the arrow on the menu automatically opens the "myGarmin Agent" download page.
From there, follow the prompts to update your Garmin nuvi's software quickly and safely.


Cleaning. In some cases, the Garmin nuvi's touchscreen won't respond to touch if the screen is dirty. Touchscreens are sensitive to dirt and smudges that decrease sensitivity.
If the screen is dirty, cleaning it with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth improves performance.
If the screen is severely dirty, using water, isopropyl alcohol or eyeglass cleaner removes tough stains.
To avoid damaging the screen, apply liquid to a cloth instead of directly to the touchscreen before cleaning it.

Tips.

Refer to your Garmin nuvi's maintenance and storage information found on the device's manual prevents premature wear and tear.
If the screen stopped working after prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures or water, the device's hardware is most likely damaged.
In such a case, you need to contact Garmin for additional troubleshooting and possible repairs.
Attempting to disassemble and repair the GPS yourself only increases the risk of damaging the unit even further.
also it could be a battery problem if the nuvi is not getting power ?

My Nuvi 650 screen reads "The following map data is more than a year oldand should be updated. When I touch the "OK" on the screen, nothing happens, it seems the screen has become unresponsive.


I would suggest some caution here. I have noticed a trend in anything that can be updated by the consumer---they just blindly do it and I have also seen as the result of this dozens of units crash and burn---if you have not issues and the unit functions why risk losing it?

Turn this unit off and see later if turned on it functions or not, failing that the only way out of the mess would be a call to the maker.

Don't just blindly say ok, kind of like getting a email with a virus and saying OK.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 650 with an unresponsive screen...can anything be done? Thanks


Power off your Garmin 660 unit. Press on continuously the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
To back up your Garmin.
  • From the garmin drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  • After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Garmin, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  • On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Garmin where they are actually stored

  • This should reset your Garmin then I would suggest updating your device at the Garmin site. I will attach a link.
    Thanks for using FixYa

    Touch screen on my Garmin Nuvi 650 doesn't work


    You may need a new touchscreen, but to make sure it is not a software problem, do this: The software on your gps system may be corrupted and unreadable. You will need to update it/re-install the software on it. To do that, you can download this software which will automatically search for the latest updates: http://www.tomtom.com/services/service.php?id=16&tab=87
    If that does not work, you need to get the touchscreen to be replaced.

    My garmin nuvi 650 will not go to next screen it


    have you tried the master reset?

    plug it in to the usb port on your computer for a few hours.if that fails,then try the master reset.

    note: that the master reset will erase all your saved data

    with the unit off,and unplugged, try pressing and holding your finger on the low right corner of the screen and slide the power switch to the on position until you see the message "confirm if you really want to delete all user data?" hit yes and let it restart. then it will set up the nuvi again, so follow the prompts.

    if that fails, hook up the nuvi to the web updater and get the latest update.

    download the updater HERE

    (actually i would do this either way)
