Garmin uses a connector that has a hinged part that flips up to release the ribbon cable. You can't slide the touchscreen ribbon cable into the connector until you release the hinge. To release the hinge use something small like a needle or a round toothpick. Insert the needle where the ribbon cable should go and gently flip the hinge up. Once the hinge is flipped, you can insert the ribbon cable into the connector and then flip the hinge down to lock the cable into the connector. Reassemble the GPS. Hope this helps you.

Hello, my Garmin 670 froze up on me and the touch pad does not work. I reset the unit several times without luck!! Can you help? Thank You Frank

You might just need to recalibrate the screen. Start by getting to the SETTINGS > DISPLAY page. Select RECALIBRATE and follow the directions.

Now, if the screen doesn't respond at all, you'll probably have to arrange for service. Contact Garmin Support for additional help with your nuvi 670 below:

I hope this helps!

Garmin won't fully turn on

there is a reset button under the thin frame around your screen. remove the frame by prying it up with your fingernail, push the reset button and your problem will be fixed

Battery doesen't keep the charge. I can't open the case to change battery forerunner 305

Hi Samdot,

I have just been through a similar problem through ingress of water into the device (They are not in the slightest bit water proof)

My device would power on, but only in the cradle attached to the usb and it would say the battery was fully charged after 4 seconds.

Any way, the battery can be replaced using the following method.
Take a decent, thin penknife and gently lever the top off the Garmin (follow the crease above the buttons). There are no catches to be aware of it is just lightly glued.

Once the lid is off you will be able to remove the two circuit boards (they just sit in there) and you will see the battery in the bottom of the case.

Unscrew the two small screw above the battery connections and you will be able to replace the li-ion battery which is in place.

I can provide images if that would be useful.
