    seems that the calabration for the screen is off. When you hit the one a 2 will appear. Hit the 2 and a 3 will appear. As you get toward the center of the screen, it works ok. The right side of the screen is off as well. I tried to get to the calibration screen with no luck. Can anyone please help !!!!!

    I have the same problem on my touch screen. I push A and get B and so forth. Extremely aggravating.

    Crazymoose is correct about the screen calibration steps. However, my 2620 reverts back to its non-calibrated condition a day later, or when powered down and then up. I have not seen an answer to this problem

I cannot program anything into directions because the screen does not bring up the number or letter when you touch it, it brings up the letter/number to the left of it. You cannot get the numbers/letters...

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 don't have any voice and the touch screen is slow

kaelor, Yes, that would be my first instinct.. that is if I was in a shop with spare parts lying around.. but I'm guessing your not so... 1st off we are only talking about the touch screen's respones time right? You said the enter button is slow to react as well.. so that makes me think keypad too. If both are reacting well, then try resetting the user data. yes, all of your POI's would be erased if you did this.. so if you can't afford that to happen , then don't do this. 1. At user menu (upon initial boot) 2. press + key and repeat (on top) button 3. select reset user data, then select the verify yes button. 4. unit will reset, post back on here and let me know if this worked.
