My Via 1605 touchscreen is suddenly acting strange. If I click on the right side of the screen, only different buttons on the left are acitivated. If I click on buttons on the left, the buttons on the left are activated normally.. I was trying to calibrate the screen but when I connect the device to my computer to adjust the cal.txt file, the GPS doesn't show up in Windows explorer and I can't see the files on the GPS. I need help!

Please help

    Try a drum reset on the unit by holding the power button about 20 seconds till you hear the drum sounds.

    Hi
    @ChickN
    Only the early NAV2 devices that use TomtomHome have access to the operating system....
    The NAV3, NAV4 & NAV5 (Wi-Fi) have NO access to the operating system....

    Hi @ChickN

    Can you carefully check you have not got something between the screen and the bezel also screen savers can cause similar issues.
