The reset button on the back will NOT erase your favorites. That would require a hard reset (wipe user data) to do that.

I don't know if it's frozen or not. I'm thinking it is. Freaked out when I couldn't home one evening and ended up getting even more lost. It would not register a satelliate and when I got home finally was till not able to get it up and running. I love this gadget and am lost with out. I don't even know where the reset button is. HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP

Try resetting your unit with the reset button on the bottom. If this doesn't work, slide the power button all the way to the left and hold it for 8 seconds.

Get frozen old the time my gps garmin 660


if its frozen to the point that it will not turn off, lift the external antenna and push the reset button, then start it up again and see if its ok. if not

make sure its has a good charge,plug it in to the usb port2.gif on your computer for a few hours.

if that fails, try a reset

note: the master reset will erase all your saved data

with the unit off,and unplugged, try pressing and holding your finger on the low right corner of the screen and slide the power switch to the on position until you see the message "confirm if you really want to delete all user data?" hit yes and let it restart. then it will set up the nuvi again, so follow the prompts.

hook up the nuvi to the web updater and get the latest update



you can get the Web Updater HERE

Frozen


doing a soft reset does not erase your information. Only hard resetting. For future reference, you can backup all your favorites etc using the mapsource (from the garmin website) Then if you ever do lose your imformation, you can reinstall it. 

Hard reset Just FYI:

with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.

Garmin nuvi frozen


Did you press the reset button located under the antenna?

Garmin 660 locked up / frozen


Resetting the device merely resets the power connection, on some devices there is a reset to manufacturer defaults on settings, but not your stored data. Working with GPS's 40 hours a week I constantly have to use the reset button when they lock up. Just press it in for a few seconds then if it doesn't power back up just hit the power button and everything should be fine.
