Hello, and sorry you're having problems. It sounds like your touch screen needs to be calibrated to fix this issue.

To complete a touchscreen calibration on these devices complete a "Software Update" (at the following link): https://support.garmin.com/support/searchSupport/case.faces?caseId={8576ba20-e948-11dc-d6fc-000000000000} and then use the following directions:

  1. Start with the device powered off and disconnected from power
  2. Touch and hold the upper left hand corner of the touchscreen when in the landscape position
  3. Power the device on
  4. Release the power button when the screen turns on but continue to apply pressure to the screen
    • On the zumo 595, "System" will appear on the screen for approximately 30 seconds
  5. Release the touchscreen when it changes and "Touch Dot" or "Press Dot" appears
  6. Accurately touch the dots as they appear
    • The dots will change location
    • A stylus may be used to accurately touch the dots
  7. Touch OK when "Calibration Complete" appears

The touchscreen is now calibrated. Repeat the above steps as needed.
