Roadmate 760 and Calibration

 

Is there a way to calibrate the touch screen on a Roadmate 700/760? Mine is off and I don't see anywhere to calibrate it. I am hoping there is a hidden menu somewhere I am not finding.

From Nuvi 7xx Owner's Manual:

Slide the Power key to the right (lock). Hold your finger on the screen for about 30 seconds until the calibration screen appears. Follow on-screen instructions.

Thanks

Thanks for the TIP! As soon as my wife gets home I will try it. I don't have a sliding power switch though, just a push button, but I wil try holding it down or something. I am sure it is similar.

Uber360, I think you thought he was asking about a NUVI 760, but he was asking about a Magellan Roadmate 760 me tinks:)

I'm not sure how similar the Roadmate 700 is to the Maestro 3225, but if the firmware is similar, here is what you can do:

1. Press 'user options'
2. Press 'system settings'
3. Press 'next' at the bottom
4. Press 'diagnostics'
5. Press 'touchscreen test'

Now you can calibrate your screen by following the prompts.

Found it

Thanks, it was slightly different, but I found it. Unfortunately it will not recognize an upper right corner screen tap. Luckily I can use the hard keys for cancel which is usually what I need to press in the upper right corner.
