    Default Noah's Ark Garmin Nuvi 710

    Gents

    I have the above unit, and it has been working 100% as expected.

    But recently the touchscreen is taking commands to the right of the screen i.e. if I key "d" it will log "j". All tap-ins all accepted horizontally to the right of the screen.

    Any way to rectify this? Or is the touch screen moertoe.

    Thanks

    Try this if the calibration is way off and you cannot get to the settings or display menu.

    I scratched around in the menu and found this under the Help Menu.

    I tried it but the screen just gives the screen locked message and nothing happens. Ah....Click image for larger version.

    Perhaps there's a way to do a hard reset on the device? That may help

    Interesting tidbit which may or may not help; it uses a resistive touchscreen versus a capacitive touchscreen (like on phones, tablets, etc). It measures the resistance in the x and y directions to determine where on the screen you're touching.

    Interesting indeed. It only works with sharp point touch such a a stylus ie if you dont have finger nails it wont take commands.

    Weird thing is it seems to start behaving and then moves off to the right again, so far of it is almost impossible to activate that function. Thus the malfunction is not consistent.

    Makes me think the screen is kaput.

    Thanks for the assistance

    By the looks of it, the Nuvi 710 is at least 15 years old. Not a bad lifespan by any means. The electronics nerd/DIYer/cheapskate in me would want to remedy the issue instead of replace it. But alas something difficult to fix may have gone wrong.

    That's me, but a bit stoopid on the electronics, always willing to learn. I will keep trying.

    I always say that God put me here to experience the utmost technical issues and persevere until I fix it
