Re: 2610 touch screen

It dosen't seem to have any problems with the touch screen, but I haven't really used it much since I did the polishing, but it seems ok.

I did as you suggested and it does look great! Did yours give you any trouble with touch sensitivity? It seems like I have to push harder and repeatedly some times to get it to work. Perhaps this is a coincidental seperate problem!

Call garmin get a repair order started , chances are they will replace the unit N/C.

also have you tried to recalibrate the touch screen since removing the film
press menu-display-find button to recalibrate.

2610 touch screen

I have a 3 year old Garmin 2610 that started peeling the film on the screen. I peeled all the film off. I assume the film was to prevent glare.
