    Have you tried recalibrating the touch screen? Maybe the screen has gone bad or the internal flex cable has come loose.



    Make & model?

Reset did not work. Still cannot enter state. When I hit spell state the gps responds no matches found. When I hit back - the alphabet appears but as soon as i hit a letter the GPS responds no matches...


The problem may be because the text language is British English. To be able to enter a state it must be in American English. To change to American English follow the instructions below;
  1. On the 'Main Menu' press the 'Settings' icon.
  2. Select the 'Locale' icon.
  3. Change the 'Text Language' to 'American English'.
  4. The unit will now allow 'States' to be entered.

Missing letters from my alphabet


You will most likely need a firmware upgrade from this website to fix the problem: http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
It will walk you through the steps and your letters should be back to normal after the update.

Tomtom 730 cannot enter address with a letter such as 2N124 If I enter just 124 I do not get the correct location. I can enter this on a Magellian gps and it works.


When you're typing the address, at the bottom of the onscreen keyboard is a button that toggles the alphanumeric characters from the alphabet to the numeric keypad. That should allow you to type in numbers and letters as needed.

Does that solve your problem?

Two Letters have disappeared


same thing happened to mine, except it is the B and S. No pun intended... I push mode, then change it to british, and use the letters there. Inconvenient, and it doesn't fix the prob, but at least you can find what you are looking for.

Garmin nuvi 200w my alphabet is sometimes missing letters. what do i do?


I just this moment resolved this problem with Garmin's Tech Support. Here's what to do:

1. Turn off your NUVI.
2. Find a standard USB cable with a mini connector on one end.
3. Connect the NUVI to a booted computer (I did this with a Windows computer) and let the computer recognize the GPS as a MASS STORAGE DEVICE.
4. AFTER the Nuvi has been recognized as a hard drive, correctly disconnect the GPS from the computer.
5. The Nuvi will turn on in locked mode. Follow the on screen instructions to unlock it.

Your problem should be resolved. The technician I spoke to said that this procedure fixes the problem 99% of the time.

Good luck.

Cannot select another state on Garmin 660.


1. From the Where To? View Map, Travel Kit page press WHERE TO

2. Press ADDRESS

3. Press SPELL STATE (should be the 2nd blue box on the page & may read SPELL COUNTY)

4. Press the letter K and Kansas + Kentucky will come up; Press the letter T and Tennessee + Texas will come up, etcetera

5. If the information does not automatically appear, hit DONE and the information will appear. For example on my nuvi 660 if I hit the letter “A” nothing happens until I hit DONE.

6. After pressing the single letter for the sate/province in which you are interested, the unit will prompt you to spell the CITY name.

You will then enter the information as it applies.
