Touchscreen won't work

 

Hi Everyone! 1st time here. Having an issue. I have the Garmin Nuvi 605. I've never had a problem with it, until now. It seems as though the touchscreen has just stopped. I can see the screen. Audio works. It just won't respond to my touch. Any ideas?

Garmin

Why don't you give Garmin a call. Even if they can't get it working I've heard they'll sometimes swap out a unit free of charge even if it's not under warranty.

Hard Reset

It sounds like you have little choice but to do a hard reset. You'll find the step-by-step here: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/26136

Calibration shouldn't bring back a DEAD touchscreen, but I suppose anything is worth trying.

However, as I just posted in another thread, you might want to check the edges of the screen where they go under the case to see if there is any crud wedged . . that will effectively kill the device's ability to read the touchscreen if there is something there.

It can usually be cleaned out with the edge of a business card.

Can't hurt to check.

look for series 300 or 600

Make sure you also follow bramfrank's suggestions.

If all fail, then do a backup

and then try a master reset (or some call it a hard reset)
