Thanks for pointing this out, exiting Garmin Mobile Xt and re-entering in this manner does not elicit keyboard upon N8 Belle although I can use the up and down arrows to scroll nearest "Cities" and other "Categories".
Makes another reason for not updating my E7 to Symbian Belle!

Same here on my N8 (Symbian Belle). I contemplated a roll-back, but experience so far has taught me that resisting upgrade roll-outs eventually leads to more frustration than the upgrades cause themselves.
Extremely annoying .
I just discovered that the menu key work-around works on my phone! Thanks for your trouble in figuring it out.
It made me wonder whether the problem involves updating the screen with the keyboard display and tried the lock button. It works! Get to the Garmin edit box prompt, lock-unlock the screen and tap inside the edit box to display the keyboard.
