For everything Garmin Zumo 345/350 related
3 posts • Page 1 of 1
I have a Zumo 350 LM which has suddenly started acting up. The touchscreen is now VERY unresponsive. I have tried reloading the maps...no change. I have taken out the memory card and rebooted....no change. The onboard memory is not full (about 60%) I have held down the off button untill the unit recycles up to four times, to see if I can get a hard reset.....no change. Generally the screen may respond after 10 to 12 touches, but then its locked up again, arragh !! I have had this unit since new, so it is well past warranty. Can the firmware/software be reinstalled ? There is no physical damage to the unit, I suspect a software bug somewhere, does the touchscreen wear out ? Is this unit worth sending in for repair ? It was not inexpensive and I feel I should get more than 5 years use out of it, as it was not abused, or damaged. Thanks for any advise on this frustrating situation.

Welcome to the Forum Airfiddler, hope you find it friendly and helpful. If I could suggest @Stu could move this topic to the specific Z 350 section, you may get more views and hopefully some help. Cheers, Pete.

first i would check and make sure nothing is lodged around the perimeter and stuck touching the screen and then look to calibrate the screen.
