The unit I received works fine. The unit my parents received works fine after I determined over the telephone that their's needed to have the touch screen calibrated. They had trouble scrolling down the screen and could not select the save button found in the lower right of some menus. It would help if Garmin made the calibration utility accessible from the tools setting or display menu in addition to the method detailed below that I found after a web search:

How to calibrate the Garmin GPS screens [].

To calibrate the touchscreen of a nuvi 11xx/12xx/13xx/14xx/16xx/22xx/23xx/24xx/25xx series unit

1.Make sure the nuvi is turned off
2.Press and hold the top left corner of the touchscreen
3.Power the unit on while applying pressure on the top left corner
4.Continue applying pressure to the top left of the screen
5.After about 30 seconds a small black dot will appear on a white screen
6.Release the touchscreen and accurately touch the dots as they appear (The dots will change location as touched)
7.Once complete a message will appear, ‘Calibration Complete’, Touch OK
