Drive 60LMT - 1.screen sensitivity 2.should I get a screen protector


Overall I'm happy with the my new Drive 60 but I have been having a challenge with panning. I use one finger similar to how I would with my phone. It seems though that the screen doesn't pan well and when I'm trying to move it barely does and then as I move say right to left or up and down it suddenly zooms in. Is there a "best practice" way to pan ?

Also I've been thinking about a screen protector but now am a bit concerned about how that could affect the screen sensitivity as well. Has anyone else experienced challenges panning on their GPS ? Thanks

    My new drive pans extremely well, better than my nuvi 2508. It does have pinch to zoom though, so that may explain one of your issues if you're using a pinch movement trying to pan the map it will zoom instead.

    If it doesn't work as well as a recent model phone then I'd say something is probably wrong with it. Their first capacitive screen model, the Nuvi 3790, had a lot of touchscreen issues like this. But the newer ones seems to be very good.

    Does the Drive 60 have a resistive or capacitive screen? I can't keep up with them anymore. ;) Some older resistive screen models had this kind of problem too, like the 1xxx series. But that was quite awhile ago. If yours is still under warranty I don't think you should settle for a problem like that.
