You have to make a screen calibration to get it on track again ...To do that look in the menu and see where is that feature and engage it ..it will calibrate the touch location with the icon on screen ..
Here is a manual that might help you do that if you are not sure what to do ...in the begining page ..it says the screen calibration is on page 74 if I remember well..anyway it is in the list ..

with unit off slide the power switch to the Left as to power unit on BUT HOLD the switch to left about 30-45 sec then you should see the calibration screen. Tap the corresponding taps very lightly and use a pencil eraser to be more precise with your touches.

It is the full manual from start to finish with complete operating procedures as well as schematics, operation instructions complete with pictures, and trouble shooting section and even other contact numbers to deal direct with Garmin, if your model is not covered in this manual.

Tap the letter or number and display shows the letter or number directly below.


This is due to a miscalibration of the touchscreen. The touchscreen needs to be recalibrated. A procedure can be found here:

When I press in a letter I get the next one over to the left. Difficult to get the end letters


Run the touch screen calibration routine by pressing the Menu Button, choose Display (if you can) and press the Find button. Follow the on-screen instructions to calibrate.

My touch screen keeps messing up, certain letters dont work.


I recommend you backup your favorites.

Then attempt a hard reset.

Finally, replace the firmware and system software using webupdate.
Replacing the system software will most likely correct the malfunctioning keying of letters.

I hope that helps.

How do I space when putting in an address


To add a space you touch an icon on the screen which is beside the letter M and just above the Done button on the enter name screen.
