Try recalibrating the display. Turn off the Nuvi. Place your finger on the upper left-hand corner of the screen and hold it there while pushing 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 dots as they are presented. 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.

3 choices:
  • Don't.... Just get a new one.
  • Don't.... use it without because the device will power on by it's self when plugged into a car

I have installed all suggested updates from the Garmin site, but still do not see my 50 when the USB cable is plugged in.

I've now had two of these devices fail in exactly this way. It appears that this model is unreliable. Call Garmin and get them to send you another GPS unit--preferably not another 40LM, as that will probably just fail again.

The older Garmin has a Nickel metal hydride battery, and they do deteriorate over time, however, if it works when plugged into the USB port of a computer (5 volts), it should work when plugged into the car charger (12 volts to 5 volts) even if the battery is bad.

As long as you are certain it works fine on the computer, replace the battery for 25 bucks. However, technology has moved on, no more plastic screens and 'Lane Assist' is an absolute godsend!

You will need to go to the Garmin website on your computer or laptop and set up an account. I think the sign up is free. You will then need to connect your Garmin to the computer and update it that way.
