    Default Garmin touchscreen problem.

    I have an old Garmin Nuvi 1310. It is fine for my needs but recently if I try and use the touchscreen it accepts the letter or numeral to the r/h of the one I actually selected . I cannot afford a new one right now!
    Anyone experienced this? Is it at all fixable?

    Check Garmin's site
    There is instructions on resenting the touch screen (I do not have time to find it now)
    It will fix it so do not stress too much it is easily fixable

    close to this

    I am sure there is a menu option / routine where you have to touch each corner to align the keyboard.
