    Hi
    @smarty63
    Welcome to the site....
    Have you tried a Soft/Drum roll restart on the device ??? This restarts the devices Operating System afresh

    Charge the device for at least 2Hrs….
    (Preferably using something like a Smartphone Charger using the Tomtom USB lead)
    OR have the device plugged into a power supply while the device is restarting
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound then release the on/off button.
    You won’t lose anything; it’s just like rebooting your PC
    I use a Soft/drum-roll start after any upgrade large or small.
    It’s also useful to keep in mind for sorting out most minor niggles....

    Hi
    @smarty63
    It's usually the early Resistive screens that give problems....
    I've not seen many if any of the problems you describe on the Capacitive screen devices like your Truck 6000....

    Edit... Do you have a Screen Protector fitted they can cause problems....

    You may have to contact Tomtom support....

    Yes I've used a soft drum restart several times but it's still the same it's just the left side about a fingers width from top to bottom, cant use any digits in that area
