Question about GPS
Your touch sensitive screen may have failed. The touch sensitive screen is a thin transparent film that is secured over the front of the display screen.
When it fails, you can no longer select or input anything into the GPS via screen. This of course renders the GPS pretty much useless. Garmin will exchange your defective GPS with a factory refurbished unit with the latest maps and provide a 90 warranty for many GPS units. The Nuvi 250 service cost is $69. I could not find your Nuvi245 model listed so you might want to contact Garmin directly to see what the replacement cost will be.
I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.
