Hi,

Once it is on the main screen, can you touch and HOLD your finger on the screen and slide your finger around the the whole screen to get ANY of the buttons to highlight?

If there is no improvement, that means that you have a 95% chance of a hardware failure of the screen. So your choices are to either
1) have the unit repaired for a "flat rate" by Garmin (about $80), or

2) replace the unit with a new one.

If you consider that there are newer units available for about the same price of repair, or maybe just a few dollars more, AND you would get the latest maps AND a new 1 year warranty, that may suggest that it is a better deal to just replace the unit.

If you want to explore the Repair option, you can click the link below to start the process.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Touchscreen on a Garmin nuvi 1350 doesn't work. How do I fix this.


Try recalibrating it using the following method:

Nuvi 11xx, 12xx, 13xx, 14xx, 24xx, 25xx Series: Turn off the Nuvi. Place your finger on the upper left-hand corner of the screen and then push down on the power button to turn the unit on. Release the power button when the Garmin logo appears. Continue to press on the upper left-hand corner of the screen until you see the calibration screen. Press all of the prompted dots.

Once completed the Nuvi will display Calibration Complete

This will recalibrate your touchscreen to the LCD display.

If this doesn't resolves your problem. then your touchscreen may be defective and may need to be replaced.

Don't have a manual. Charging in electrical outlet at home and don;t know how long to charge for. Plug in shows a red and green lite, both on and I have been charging for over 4 hours. Comments


Most garmin nuvi satnavs take 4 hours to charge with a mains charger or a car charger. It takes 8 hours with a computer. There's a batter indicator on the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP. It will probably only appear when the charger is disconnected if it's the same as other garmin nuvis.

You can get the manual in Adobe Reader format from http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/nuvi680_OwnersManual.pdf

The screen in my garmin nuvi 680 is no work


You will need to recalibrate your screen. If the screen is not working at all, you can go search for the support article at Garmin. Use the keywords touchscreen and 600. This may temporarily fix the problem, but if you have a lemon, the touchscreen may need to be replaced. (The solution is also posted at this site from other users.)

Garmin Nuvi 680 Touch Screen "touch" works intermittently


Recalibration has nothing to do with repairing this problem. If the touchscreen is non-responsive, how are you going to recalibrate it when it doesn't recognize the key presses?

The problem is caused by a defective touchscreen. SHARP substitued a different touchscreen into the 6xx series that fails even when the glass isn't damaged. The problem is caused by a defect in the manufacturing process where the touchscreen connections becomes detached from the tail that plugs into the board.

The touchscreen connections between the screen and the tail are made from conductive ink that can fracture, most likely caused when pressing on the screen over time.

These defective screens can be identified by a white tail cap at the end of the tail, whereas the original touchscreens have a maroon tail cap. The original touchscreens will only fail if the glass has been broken.

I only use the original touchscreens for all of my repairs.

Unit touchscreen works randomly after update


Updating the firmware may have replaced the calibration settings.
You've a menu from where you can run re-calibration again.
It will ask for 4 or 6 points to click, and that's it.

Touchscreen on garmin nuvi 680 GPS stopped working


Try reseting the nuvi, there is a reset button on the bottom or on the back, some models have it on the front under the display cover.

if that doesn't help the digitizer which is the part on top of the lcd display that registers the touch could have failed and may need to be replaced.

I haven't seen many garmin repairers, you might have to get in touch with garmin about it, check ebay for replacement parts but if I remember correctly garmin takes care of it and don't distripute much parts.

My 2 year old Garmin Nuvi 680's touch screen no longer responds. I have tried "re-booting" but that doesn't work. Is there anything else I could try?


there's not much you can do if the screen is not responding.
the solution is to replace the touchscreen preferably at a specialized center.
