Hi there, if you have tried all the reset options etc and this still does not cure it then I am afraid it is going to need a new touchscreen. They are available on ebay here . A guide is available to replace the touchscreen here but if you are worried about doing this yourself then you might want to ask someone a little more hands on. Obviously if this unit is under a year old then it is covered by the Garmin warranty and you should give them a call.

Unfortunately this is a very common problem for the Nuvi but hopefully with the above links you should be able to sort it out quite easily.

I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

My Garmin 660 Nuvi touch screen will not respond I have put in the latest update, held the start button down untill the touch dot calibration shows and tryed the reset button none of this has worked, no...


This is a common problem due to certain style of touchscreen that is known to fail due to temperature. if you can not recalibrate the screen, then the touchscreen needs to be replaced. More information, including the recalibration procedure can be found here:

Screen on my Garmin Nuvi 650 is frozen (no reaction to touch). Cna move through screens via the on/off button. Haven't updated maps...ever. Seems like most repairs will cost me $25 just in shipping. ...


The problem with the gps device is a minor one. First you ensure it is properly charged, then you reset it by holding down the power button for about 15 seconds, then it will restart and you will be able to touch the screen once again. If that does not work, then you need to calibrate the screen, take note that calibrating the screen does not just work the moment you try it, you need to try it repeatedly till you get it right. This is how to calibrate your nuvi:
  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.

Touch screen does not work. Have already reset


If you have reset your garmin and it still does not work, then the problem is a hardware problem and most likely is the touch screens sensor that has gone bad. The solution to that is for you to disassemble the garmin nuvi then take out the sensor board and replace it with a another. Once that is done, then the problem will be solved.
Hope this information came in handy.

Not touch sensative


In 90% of the cases it's the digitizer (the touch sensor that is mounted in front of the screen). You can try to replace it yourself or send it to a third party gps repair service.

Nuvi 660 : no response on touch screen


Use your fingernails to lightly pry the screen surround away from the screen. Mine did this and the casing was touching the screen. Once I did this, all was well.
Be careful, you are not trying to bend the case, just get it off the screen.

Garmin Nuvi 660 touch screen freezes up. Soft


I sat on the phone for 30 minutes waiting for Garmin support when my Nuvi suddenly had no touch screen response. They had me delete a file on the device (with it hooked to my computer) then reboot and it went thru a touch screen alignment and it worked.

Sadly, it has frozen again and I don't recall the file (it had been a GCD file in all caps, that is all I know and I don't see a file in all caps any more). I will be calling support tomorrow.

My take is that it *is* a firmware thing *and* there is some way to reset the firmware.
