Garmin Street Pilot C330 - screen problem

My Garmin C330 has a touchscreen problem recently.
The alignment on the screen is off. When you touch the middle of screen, it activates the "screen button" at the bottom of the screen. When you touch the top of the screen, it activates a "screen button" at the middle of the screen. If you need to select something at the top of the screen, you can't touch it high enough for it to register.
If the screen has a problem, can it be fixed, or am i stuck in having to either pay $150 for a repair, or trash and buy a new one?
Thanks for your help.
Mike

    Yes, I tried that (holding on button and finger on screen for 30 seconds) and it works for a little while. After about an hour or so of use, it drifts enough so that punching in street numbers will be off by a little.

    Garmin Street Pilot C340 - touch screen is off alignment. I tried recalibrating and it is still doing the same thing.



    For ex. when I push a "1" it shows a "2"



    Very frustrating!

    I have the same problem too. Even I took it back to Best Buy the problem not being solved. Now it was still in Best Buy for third time repair ( I have bought the extend warranty for this item ) but I don't think they can fix it either. Anyway ..............you know......... I just waste money.

This doesn't fix Sitfar's problem, but for those how might find this helpful from Garmin's site: Question:  The touch screen is not responding correctly when I touch it. How can I recalibrate the screen?
Answer: To recalibrate the touch screen:

  1. Turn the unit off.
  2. With the unit off, touch and hold the Power button for 30 - 40 seconds.

Cracked screen on Garmin street pilot 330


Given the cost of buying a new LCD with touchscreen is about $130 USD + shipping. Your best solution is to sell the existing unit and buy a new Nuvi or recondition C330.

Garmin will repair the unit for $150 and provide the lastest update and map.
