Clean between the screen and the gps housing by running a piece of greeting card material between them. Dirt collects there and makes your unit do strange things... like locking up your screen.

Touch screen not responding at all. Garmin powers up okay.


This is Garmin's response to me after having the same problem on a 2 year old Nuvi 650: We are no longer replacing or repairing this model unit. However, let me give you some steps to try to calibrate the screen of your unit. The following 'Fix' did not work. I won't be buying another Garmin.
To recalibrate the touchscreen on your nuvi 600 series device please follow the steps below:


  1. Plug the device into the computer via USB data cable
  2. Double click My Computer (Mac Users can skip this step)
  3. Double Click the Garmin or nuvi drive
  4. Double click the Garmin folder
  5. Delete the GUPDATE.GCD file (if this file is not on the device please skip to the next step)
  6. Unplug the GPS device from the computer
  7. Power the device off
  8. Press and hold the Power button
  9. After a short period a screen should appear that says Touch Dot
  10. Release the Power button
  11. Touch the dots as they move around the screen.


Your touchscreen should now be recalibrated.


If the screen is still not responding, then the unit will need to be replaced with a new unit at this time.

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.
