Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Garmin c330 My Garmin c330 will not let me use the touchscreen. When I touch the buttons, it does not respond. I am very sad about this and have been reading about other people's troubleshooting. They keep mentioning that they have "reset" it. This probably sounds stupid, but how do you do that? I can't find a button anywhere! Thanks for any help you can give me. Robin Patrick

This is a common problem due to certain style of touchscreen that is known to fail due to temperature. if you can not recalibrate the screen, then the touchscreen needs to be replaced. More information, including the recalibration procedure can be found here:

Try to calibrate the touch screen. Push and hold the power button on until you see a white dot on the screen. This is the calibration mode. Touch the dot and another dot will apppear, now touch this dot again, keep doing this until the unit reboot.

If you touch the 1st dot and nothing happens then the digitizer on the LCD is dead. If the unit is still under warranty, get a RMA and return it to Garmin.
