The touch screen doesn't work with my finger tip, only when my nail touchs screen, also did the screen calibration, did not not help


It may be a resistive screen rather than a capacitive screen which is not as sesitive to touch. You may need to use a stylus as it may need slight pressure vs just touch if it is a resistive screen.

The touch screen is not working. I've tried the reset and re-calibrating but neither have helped. can the touch screen be replaced?


yes it can be replaced, quite cheaply too you just need to be very careful when removing the old one as it is glued to the lcd so there can be a risk of breaking the lcd. use a scalpel or craft blade to prise the touch screen up and gently score inbetween the two to remove it

Garmin gps keyboard -- left upper corner fails to work when press ''A'' is C and others on left side are incorrect also. How do I fix?


Sounds like you need to recalibrate the screen. This can be done by following the steps below:

To Calibrate the Touch Screen on a zūmo®:
1. Turn the unit Off and make sure it is not attached to any outside power source.
2. Power the unit On, continue to hold the Power button for 1 minute. 3. A screen will display that says, Press dot in the lower left corner. 4. Release the Power button and touch the sequence of dots until your unit says Calibration complete.

Good luck!

My touch screen has froze up & know matter what i do i can't the proble


Assuming that you cannot switch it off and on again, try removing the battery for a couple of minutes before re installing. Failing that a cold reboot my work ..... with the unit switch off press and hold the bottom right corner of the touch screen and the press the power button. The Zumo splash screen should appear....continue to hold the botton right corner until the reset default screen instrution appear and follow them. This has work in the passed.
If you have recently download a latest software via the Garmin web updater this can sometimes cause conflicts and you may need to re-install a prervious version. from the Garmin link attached.

Touch screen not working properly


I'm not familiar with the Zumo family of GPS from Garmin, but if they are similar enough to the StreetPilot, you should be able to recalibrate the screen. In the StreetPilot series, to recalibrate you turn the unit off. Press and hold the bottom right of the screen and turn the unit on. Keep pressing the screen until the calibration information begins. Try this, see if it works on the Zumos, too.
