The problem is the screen needs to be calibrated, however this sometimes doesn't work if the touch screen is failing. I saw a lengthy procedure posted here in a different solution I have yet to try. But for the calibration you will go to menu - > display -> press FIND and follow the directions on screen. If calibration fails repeat, or find the other lengthy instructions here and try those. Several people claim they have worked, again, I haven't tried them. Another option is to purchase a remote for the unit. I have one and use it for mine because my screen totally failed. I have since replaced the screen with a junk unit I purchased on EBay but prefer the remote over the touch screen for most things. Remotes are about $30 bucks. If you're lucky you might be able to find a 2610 that includes a remote for around $50 and pick up an extra set of accessories. Good luck and post back if you have any other questions.
I just had the same problem and fixed it....
Open the front panel, take out the 4 screws, open carefully the machine. Inside, there are 4 little screws that keep the computer board in place. Take them out and you'll see 2 ribbons, one smaller than the other. That small ribbon need to be pushed back into place. For that, pull the little grey slot and put the ribbon back in all the way and secure it with the plug. That's it! It works right away but it took me a few time for it to hold all the way to close the machine up.
Basically, the problem comes from that ribbon being lose or totally out of it slot!
I hope that helps! Good luck!
dust can enter the tomtom membrane that sits just above the screen. if there are dust particles in there trapped then this can effect the operation of the touch screen. It normally happens only around the edge of the screen so it is possible to clean it out after removing the screen bezel.
You can't turn the navigation back on with this method. You must once again highlight the waypoint you want to navigate to in your Fine>Waypoints screen and then press the "Go to" highlighted button on the screen.
My iway 500c kinda had the same problem. At first while driving, the screen would go from 3d to always north to always up and be switching screens 3 to 4 times a second. It would finally go back to normal. After about a month of this the touch screen would work intermittently. It finally quit working completely on a trip to Texas. When I got home I called Lowrance and the said they would replace it for $350. I already spent over $600 for it. I took the thing apart and found the grounding screw to the touch screen was really loose. I tightened it and now its working again for now. I am not happy with Lowrance support.
