Device: Garmin Nuvi 660 NA. After power on, nuvi boots thru to the "Where to" page. On the prior page, the touchscreen will not click "Enter" but after a time delay, nuvi proceeds to...


*Master reset your Garmin Device:


1.Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power;

2.Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil

3.Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON

4.Release the power button when the device powers ON

5.You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?

6.Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays - Touch Yes

7.The device will automatically reset. Please follow the on screen prompts on the nuvi .


*If the touchscreen is incorrectly detecting where your finger touches the screen, the screen may need to be calibrated.


1.Power the unit On.From the Where to? and View map screen, touch Settings . Touch Display>Touch Re-calibrate


2.A new screen will display that says Press Dot,Touch the Center of the Dot.

>Keep touching the center of the dot as it moves around the screen.


3.When Calibration Complete appears on the screen, please touch OK.

The screen will now be Re-calibrated.



*If the screen is not responding to touch, the device may not have enough power to function properly. Recharge the battery completely and try again. If the battery does not charge, it may need to be replaced.

If the screen is still not responding to touch commands or displaying properly, the display may need to be replaced. If sound comes from the device, it is likely the motherboard is working, and only the display needs to be replaced.

Refer to:Garmin Nuvi 660 Screen Replacement Guide

Before replacing the display, check that the ribbon cables connecting the display to the motherboard are connected securely.

I know the GPS coordinates of a place, I want to be. How do I enter those to start finding a route from where I am?


I am assuming this is a Quest or Quest2 GPS.
Using the map screen use the larger 4way "navigation" button on the front panel and cursor the screen pointer to the location you would like to save. You may need to zoom in on the location. At the bottom of the screen you will see the "lat/long" displayed. The further you "zoom in" the more precise you can get with the "lat/long". Once you have the pointer at your desired coordinates, hit the "OK" button. This will bring up an address or some other feature name. If there are multiple choices, simply pick the one that is most appropriate and again his "OK". At the bottom of the screen you will see 3 "buttons" (save, find near, and route to). Select "save". Now you will see a screen with several windows that contain the lat/long data, perhaps an address, a map icon, and the name you selected in the earlier screen. You can again use the large 4 way "navigation" button on the front panel to switch between the displayed fields. This will allow you to select a map icon such as a house, store, marina, or whatever. You can then use the "nav" button to select the lat/long window and make any final adjustments to the lat/long data. You can also move the cursor up to the waypoint name box and change it to whatever you prefer. Once you have all of the data fields to your preference on this page, you can use the "nav" button to cursor down to "OK" at eh bottom of the screen and then hit the "OK" button on the front panel. The waypoint should be stored with the correct data in the GPS.

We want to reset the clock from am to pm or start beginning questions all over again.


1. Turn on the TomTom unit. 2. Tap the screen to bring up the menu. 3. Tap the "Change Preferences" icon 4. Keep hitting the arrow to go to the next page. Clock setting is on page 6 of the preferences dialog. 5. If the Set Clock option is greyed out, you will need to perform a system reset and then perform these steps over again.
To reset the system, start with the power off. Then, hold down the power button for about 15 seconds, until you see the TomTom logo appear on the display. When the logo appears, release the power button. After this reset, you should be able to turn the unit back on and proceed with your setup from scratch.

The screen on my Tom Tom One fades and then goes blank the voice still is on, how do I get to battery settings? Someone told me that it might be battery savings setting


Try touching the screen instead of the power button

If that brings up the display try the procedure below.

It can usually be fixed and tends to be just an option in the preferences menu

Touch a regular map display once

Now touch the Safety Preferences once

Press Done until you see the Turn Off Map Display

Select NEVER

Select DONE

Select DONE one last time to return to the map.

You didn't say how old it was and if it has a lot of use and is coming up to 2 years old it may need the battery replacing.

Geko 101 wouldn't turn off. Removed/inserted batts, wont turn on


Press the power on button while holding OK until the unit switches on- that puts the 101 into Service mode. Then press the up key until the screen contrast is about right. (or press the down key... to make it darker). You'll be able to see if all the tests pass. Then when you're happy with the setting, turn off.

Welcome Screen


Go to the 'Main Menu' page and bring down the menu. Click on 'Owner Information' to bring up the owner information page. Tab to the bottom and uncheck the box that says 'Show At Power-up'. Personally, I would want the info to display at power-up so that honest people would see it. You can speed up the display sequence by pressing the page key after each screen loads up.

Etrex - can't find satellites anymore. Just stopped one day after downloading Points to my pc


Hi,

To my knowledge, a reset on a Garmin eTrex would require:
Holding down the PAGE and PAGE UP buttons while simultaneously powering the unit. The Garmin eTrex will enter the service mode/display:
- Bravo Version
- Software Version
- Time
- Internal temperature of unit
- Battery voltage
- External voltage
- Button presses
- Other tech info

You can also perform an LCD display/screen check by pressing the PAGE button 2X.

A firendly word of advice: While entering the service mode is interesting and useful, be careful which buttons you press because it is also possible to rest the unit to factory settings within this mode. Pressing "up"+"enter"+"on/off" keys in service mode will reset the eTrex to factory defaults. All presets and data will be lost.

To exit just turn it off as normal, and then turn it back on as normal. Unless you deliberately reset the GPS, nothing should have changed.

Alternately, you can try: Hold down the find, click-stick, and page buttons. Press the power button, and when the title screen appears, release the buttons. This will clear all memory (you will lose all waypoints, etc. back them up first).
Find button: bottom button on the left
Click stick: the button on the face of the unit
Page: the top button on the right
Power: the bottom button on the right

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
