This was just suggested for the exact same problem with my StreetPilot 2620 and worked like a charm: (1) Disconnect any external GPS antenna. (2) Do not turn on auto engine. (3) Turn off any other peripheral devices. (4) Simultaneusly hold down the PAGE and MENU buttons while turning on the 2620. A prompt box will appear asking if you really want to delete all user data. Touch the NO selection. Then turn off the 2620. (5) Simultaneously hold down MENU & ROUTE buttons while turning on the 2620. (6) A self-running diagnostic program will appear. Allow it to run for a couple of minutes; check to see that all parameters indicate "PASS" or other indication of being OK. If any parameter is not OK, make a note of it for potential communication to Garmin, then proceed with the following steps (7) Turn off the 2620. (8) Simultaneously hold down the PAGE, MENU & ROUTE buttons while turning on the 2620. A SCREEN CALIBRATION adjustment screen will apear. Quickly touch the points indicated as the calibration program runs. At the end of this procedure, the screen will display a window indicating that the calibration either "PASSED" or "FAILED." If it "PASSED," continue to steps (8)-(9). If it "FAILED," turn off the 2620 and repeat this step. If, after three calibrations attempts, each one is "FAILED," then also turn off the 2620 and proceed to steps (8)-(9). (8) Turn on the 2620. Press the "OK" button each time prompted to do so. Wait for maps to load and for the 2620 to initialize, acquire satellites, and display your position. (9) Press FIND button, then touch the right-hand vertical screen position adjustment to scroll screen display down to reveal WAYPOINT selection box. If unable to select WAYPOINT, or if attempting to do so only selects an adjacent box, then repeat step (7), and return to this step. (10) When various waypoint selections appear, attempt to scroll down to a selection not visible when the list of waypoints first appears, and select one of them. If still unable to select WAYPOINT box, unable to scroll screen down (or if trying to do so selects a stored waypoint instead), once again repeat step (7). If successful,then proceed to step (11). Also proceed to step (11) if you have repeat step (7) but then still can't select WAYPOINT, can't scroll down after selecting WAYPOINT, or can't select a particular stored WAYPOINT. (11) Press the upper-right hand "X" to close out the FIND screen or sub-screen within that function. If unable to close the screen, press the PAGE button. (12) Press FIND button, and when selection screen appears, touch ADDRESS. On next screen, touch the STATE line and touch the ENTER A CITY in (name of state). When keyboard appears on screen, use it to enter your city, then touch OK. Continue this procedure to enter your house number and street name, then press "OK." If all screen keyboard keys not responding, repeat step (7), turn the 2620 off and on again, wait for it to initialize, and then attempt this step again. (13) Repeat this procedure several times if not initially successful. By the second or third run-through, the touch screen should respond fully and accurately. If, after many runs through this procedure, the touch screen still will not respond, the screen sensor probably will need to be replaced ($255). The foregoing procedure brought my touch screen back to life last evening, much to my delight. Do not be too concerned if the SCREEN CALIBRATION step does nto produce a "PASS;" on my third calibration attempt it produced a PASS but all of the touch screen points still had not returned to functionality. I was unable to get a PASS during the screen calibration step after that, but the many repetitions apparently nonetheless made the difference, as by patiently following the above prcoess for five cycles, full screen functionality was restored. Thank you for rating this solution. Good luck and save you $250 for something else!

SOURCE: Cannot load map in my Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS

i dont think you can upload maps to an i3, it can only load pre-loaded maps on micro-sd cards.

SOURCE: Free map updates

Unfortunately, they don't offer free map updates. You can purchase map updates for around $70, but they won't update them for free.

Also, the base model of the C330 does not have enough memory to store the entire 2008 Map Update. Unless you have more memory than it came with stock, you may have to choose which maps to include. For instance, in North America you have to choose between US and Canada - there's insufficient memory to hold both.

No signal how do I fix it


You have not said what model garmin nuvi ?
The touchscreen on a Garmin nuvi GPS usually loses sensitivity or stops responding if it's lost calibration.
This usually happens after prolonged usage.
Touchscreen problems are also caused by dirt, smudges and improper care.
If your Garmin nuvi's screen isn't performing as expected, Garmin provides solutions and tips to not only improve the device's performance, but prevent premature wear and tear.
Calibrating the Screen

If the Garmin nuvi's touchscreen isn't working, you need to calibrate the screen.
Calibration resets and repositions the screen for optimal performance without deleting saved settings.
Before calibrating the screen, press and hold the "Power" button to turn off the device.
Pressing and holding the "Power" button again for about 30 seconds automatically displays the calibration screen.
Pressing the dot on the white screen calibrates the touchscreen automatically.

Updating Software.
If The Garmin nuvi's touchscreen is still unresponsive, updating the device's firmware to the latest version can solve operating system problems that lead to touchscreen problems.
Before updating the device's firmware, connect the GPS to the computer using the USB cable. When the computer detects the GPS, the "AutoPlay" menu appears on the screen.
Tapping the arrow on the menu automatically opens the "myGarmin Agent" download page.
From there, follow the prompts to update your Garmin nuvi's software quickly and safely.


Cleaning. In some cases, the Garmin nuvi's touchscreen won't respond to touch if the screen is dirty. Touchscreens are sensitive to dirt and smudges that decrease sensitivity.
If the screen is dirty, cleaning it with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth improves performance.
If the screen is severely dirty, using water, isopropyl alcohol or eyeglass cleaner removes tough stains.
To avoid damaging the screen, apply liquid to a cloth instead of directly to the touchscreen before cleaning it.

Tips.

Refer to your Garmin nuvi's maintenance and storage information found on the device's manual prevents premature wear and tear.
If the screen stopped working after prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures or water, the device's hardware is most likely damaged.
In such a case, you need to contact Garmin for additional troubleshooting and possible repairs.
Attempting to disassemble and repair the GPS yourself only increases the risk of damaging the unit even further.
also it could be a battery problem if the nuvi is not getting power ?

Garmin 1300 touchscreen has no response when i press the map button it does not respond, some buttons do respond but most do not, the buttons that do work send me to the incorrect application


It sounds like your nuvi would benefit from a simple screen calibration. You do this as detailed on page 47 of the manual. Since it is a very short procedure - I have transcribed it here for you.

1) Shut off the nuvi.

2) Press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds until the calibration screen appears (White screen with press dot").

Simply touch the dot as it moves on the screen. You might consider using a stylus or other relatively pointed object for the most accurate results.

That's it! If this was helpful, please rate it as such. Thanks & good luck!

3:Touch the "Settings" icon which appears as a wrench.

4:Push the "Restore" button at the bottom of the screen. A confirmation message will appear asking to confirm restoring the Nuvi to factory settings. Push yes to restore the factory settings

Try this for hard reset .

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen [ Don't let go ] , and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press “Yes” to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
