    Answer:

    To recalibrate the touch screen please follow the instructions below:

    1. Turn the nuvi device off.
    2. Press the power swith over into the on position and hold for 45 secs.
    3. You should see a message on the display that says 'Press Dot'
    4. Keep pressing the dot as it moves around the screen until the calibration is finished.
    5. Once this is complete, there will be a message that says "calibration complete".

  • On a Nuvi 205, I got the "dots", counted hitting over one hundred of them. Then screen was blocked with "Trouble finding satellites." Continue searching? No Yes.
    Answer/reply is blocked by original problem.

    Edit: Placed in a window of house, it finds sats quickly.

    Screen is sometimes responsive BUT way "offset"
    (several inches) to the point of being useless.
    Need to clear old settings better
    Update: I got nowhere.
    Bought this 01-09. Failed quick. (We used it on two trips.)
