    Wow, I did the same tap on the bottom right hand of the screen, and boom, everything is fine (for the moment). I was about to throw it out after sitting idle for almost 3 years. Thanks sillyguy.

I had this problem too with the one I got from my sister. If you tap your finger in the lower right of the touch screen mine came back on. I think it resets the screen with commands that come back into the screen area. Try that and let me know. Dale.

Ditch it and buy another brand. These guys have very poor support.
they promised new maps. nothing.
they promised a fix for the Q: My MN2707 gets stuck on a screen that says "It is important that digital maps and PO", but the rest is cut off. NOTHING.
you call them and they say the fix is coming. They have abandoned us so I say don't give them another nickle.

I have a discontinued model Garmin 2820 Street Pilot - How do you update mapping software?


I had a problem when I went to the Garmin site to update my 2820. After the update, the touch screen function didn't work--it would freeze and I'd have to reboot it. In contacting Garmin, even though this was a high-end GPS and was not inexpensive when it came out, they said they would no longer support it and they wouldn't offer any suggestions as to how or who to go to in order to return its functionality. It looks like what happened when they stopped their customer support that they combined the software from the 2820 with their Nuvi software and while that might work for the map, it deactivated the touch-screen and bluetooth function. My unit still does not work.

The touch screen doesn't work with my finger tip, only when my nail touchs screen, also did the screen calibration, did not not help


It may be a resistive screen rather than a capacitive screen which is not as sesitive to touch. You may need to use a stylus as it may need slight pressure vs just touch if it is a resistive screen.

Touch screen doesn't work


Have you tried the screen recalibration; by touching the upper right of the screen for 30 seconds or so while turning on the unit. This usually cures the problem.
Next try; sliding the "Power" key to the left position and hold it for eight to ten seconds to reset the Garmin. I have attached a link to the Garmin manuals for your 255W.
Once you get it going you should update your unit also at the Garmin site. The updates will fix the software glitches.

My garmin nuvi 255w keeps freezing up at loading maps screen...i have tried the hard reset but that doesn't work, when i push on the bottom right corner and start the gps, it doesn't even make it...


There is a hard reset button under the sticker at the bottom of the unit. It is located directly under the check mark on the sticker. Once you get it going fully charge the unit then go to the Garmin website and register and update your 255w. I will attach the link to the Garmin Site. Thanks for using FixYa

My Garmin Nuvi 660 touch screen is frozen. I've tried to reset it with the switch on the back. I've tried connecting it to my computer to reset it. Powering on and off don't work.


Sounds like your firmware needs updated. Just go to Garmin’s website then downloads and update your firmware. As long as there is no screen damage but just touch screen not working that will fix it. An easy test is to take out the battery and if the unit works for second then freezes you just need to update firmware. Turn off unit plug into computer via usb cable and do firmware update, that easy!!!! Hope that helps?

My garmin freezes on startup. Can't master reset


Hi,

You could try pressing and holding the power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, try a master reset by:

Start with the unit off and unplugged from power.
  1. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  2. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit on.
  3. Release the power button when the device powers on.
    • You will see a new message: "Do you really want to erase all user data?"
  4. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  5. Touch "Yes"
  6. Restart the unit
Please let me know if it helps.
Thanks

Garmani nuvi 780 freezes on "updating bluetooth firmware 0%" when turned on


Worked for me but not sure why, I had the same problem of freezing when updating Bluetooth firmware on a Nuvi 770. I chose to reset all user data (press lower tight hand of touch screen while powering on) and next reboot it updated firmware sucesfully. No idea why this worked.

Freezes at pin request


Can you enter the PIN number? Is the touch screen working? Many times a unit will appear to freeze when the problem is the touch scfreen. You need the PIN number and a working touch screen in order to get back into the Garmin and restore to default.
