Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. In order to calibrate the Garmin 2720 please follow the steps below.

1. Calibrate the screen of the Garmin 2720 to fix the touch screen when it will not recognize that you are pressing it. Press the "Menu" button of the remote. Select settings and then display from the remote. Hit the "Recalibrate" button and follow the instructions on the screen, which will tell you where to touch the screen for calibration.

2. Check that the batteries are in the remote correctly. Look in the battery compartment on the rear of the remote to check that the "+" and "-" on the remote and the batteries and align them if they are not correctly matched "+" to "+" and "-" to "-" polarity. Point the front of the remote at the IR port on the front of the Garmin 2720 and press any button to see if the remote is working. If not, get new batteries.

3. Replace the two AAA batteries in the remote. Put the new batteries firmly into the battery compartment with the + and - polarities of the batteries lined up with the appropriate polarities in the remote. Put the back on the remote and test it by pointing it at the IR port and pushing a button.

4. Reset the Garmin 2720 to the original settings to clear data. Press the power switch on the right side of the unit if the looking at the screen to turn the unit off. Press the power switch again to turn the Garmin 2720 on again. Press down and hold the "Find" key on the front of the Garmin 2720, which is the button near the top right corner of the screen. Hold the button down until you see the message on the screen that reads "Do you really want to erase all user data?" Select "Yes." Be aware that doing so will delete all of your data, including your recent finds.

5. Load the USB drivers to fix connection problems with your computer. Insert the USB driver CD-Rom into the drive on your computer. Select "Start" and Run" if the software does not load by itself. Type the letter of your computer's CD-Rom drive and then type "setup." Press the "Enter" key. Your computer will walk you through the rest of the installation process of the USB drivers. This will be different for each computer depending on your operating system.

6. Connect the power cable of the Garmin 2720. Plug the mini-USB connector into the connector on the back of your Garmin. The connector is located underneath the weather cap, which is toward the bottom on the left side of the back of the unit. Access the connector by lifting the weather cap flap. Insert the available end of the cable into a USB connector on your computer.

7. Call Product Support in the U.S. at 800-800-1020 if you have any other issues you cannot fix by following these directions. Call 44-0870-850-1241 if you are in Europe.

Screen calibration screwed up.. need to know how to reset it?


You can get back into the touch-screen calibration routine if you start up the machine with both of the needle offset buttons pressed at the same time ... once you've calibrated the touch-screen you'll be OK again.

Touch problem


Hello,


Nokia designed the N97 with a touch-screen calibration program to remedy problems with the touch screen. Opening the touch-screen calibration program requires you to use the touch screen, which can prove difficult. You're forced to judge where to tap the screen because the screen isn't recording the precise location of your taps. To find the touch-screen calibration program, open the main menu, select "Settings" and then "Touch Input." The program provides on-screen instructions to help you finish calibrating the screen.

What does calibrating a ipad mean


Whoever used the term "calibrating an iPad" may have been referring to touch screen calibration.

Some touch screens need to be adjusted, or "calibrated", or the device may act as if you touched a different spot on the screen than you did. The iPad screen does not need to be calibrated.
If the iPad make a mistake about what spot you touched, the error may be due to:
  • a defect or damage;
  • a screen protector;
  • a cold finger;
  • a hand that is holding the iPad and inadvertently touching the screen;
  • a finger that is inadvertently touching the screen.

Its saying calibration problem on the screen


When the Reader device is started for the first time or is reset back to factory settings, the screen must be calibrated. The Reader device will display a calibration screen that requires you to touch the stylus to the center of an "X" at several points on the screen. This is to make sure the touch screen properly recognizes input.
The process requires you to touch the "X" in the following locations on the screen:
  • Top left
  • Bottom right
  • Top right
  • Center
If the screen is accidentally touched someplace other than the center of the "X" during calibration, the Reader device will display a message stating Calibration error detected. Please restart calibration process .
If this happens, please start again in the top left corner and touch the stylus to the center of each "X" as it is displayed, being careful not to touch any other part of the screen. After the sequence is completed the Reader device will display Touch Panel calibration completed . Click OK to continue to the next step in the setup process.

"Calibration wizard. You have to calibrate the touch-screen. Click anywhwere on the screen with your stylus to start calibration".

Of course you can´t but there´s no other option because it won´t accept any other input until it´s calibrated apparently. Does anyone know how to bypass this calibration wizard on start up?

Calibration of my MobilePro off


We've put together some useful tips on calibrating your MobilePro * When calibrating your touch screen be sure to use the same amount of pressure that you apply during normal use. In general, the lighter the better. This allows the screen to recognize taps consistently. * When calibrating your touch screen hold the stylus over the calibration point until it moves to the next point. Holding it for this period will lead to greater accuracy than just tapping the spot quickly. * When calibrating your touch screen support the screen from the back with your other hand. Try not to grasp the screen from the side with your thumb on the front. * When calibrating your touch screen do not let anything other that the stylus accidentally touch the screen. For example, don't rest part of your hand on the screen to help steady the stylus. * Once you've completed the stylus calibration, be sure to perform the double tap calibration as well. This will ensure greater accuracy.
