Garmin 660 touchscreen inoperative


Hello,

Try performing a soft reset.
Disconnect the unit from any external power supply.
Depress the reset button behind the flip up antenna.
Reconnect the unit to the power supply and let it should work normally.

If the soft reset does not work, try performing a hard reset.
Caution: Performing a hard reset will erase all user information including favorites and bookmarks and restore the unit back to factory settings. Be sure to save any information before performing the hard reset.
With the unit off, press and hold the lower right hand corner of the screen while turning the power on until a pop-up appears. Press "Yes" to restore the unit back to factory settings.

My garmin satnav volume goes on and off just when i need it the most. pls help


Hello
Have you tried resetting unit.
Also try a different voice to see if it is a corrupted voice.
The other thing to try is to plug in some earphones and see if the voice is effected on these.
Then you will know if it is just a loose speaker problem.

Trying to input address and cannot type in street, gets three letters and goes to street name and won't let me continue to type actual name karenwallin@aol.com


Thank you for your question.

Go to the Garmon.com website. Check for an "update for your Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver. Download the update which may take a while. It's best to start downloading and go do something else for a while until the download is complete.

If this doesn't work, contact support at Garmin.

Go to the Garmin website now (click here)


If your unit was around $100 or so, it's easier to just buy a new one then to send yours in for service.

I found a discounted unit online:

Discounted Garmin GPS


Hope this helps you solve your GPS problem.

My garmin nuvi 660 is asking me for a pin and i done have it. i need help


Unfortunately, even if you perform master reset on Garmin GPS unit, it does not reset Garmin Lock security feature, which password-protect most Garmin electronic devices to deter theft. If you forget the PIN or password unlock code to unlock the Garmin unit, the best solution is to bring it to Garmin to get unlocked. “Secure Location” does not unlock a locked Garmin unit either as it’s only a temporary fix as when it’s turn on outside the security location, the device is locked again."

So unfortunately, there is only one option: You have to send your nüvi into the Garmin, who can unlock it. Remember original receipt.

Garmin Nuvi won't turn on


See if you can find the reset button on the unit and push it while the unit is on. On newer units the reset button is on the back, but on older units it may have a faceplate cover around the edge of the screen you have to remove and the reset button is sometimes located under the faceplate...this may work

Starting point is wrong


As you are turning on the unit press and hold the lower right corner then it will come up with a reset option. Reset the unit. If that does not work please reply back with the model of your Nuvi unit.

Are you running this unit while it is charging? Does the Nuvi 660 have a sufficient charge?

Try to do a hard reset on the unit.

Screen goes blank


Maybe the setting of your video display was change to higher setting, and your screen cannot handle the said setting.

When a "safe mode" message appears during opeing, select that options, then at the desktop right click your mouse, chose properties, then setting, then change the screen resolution to lower range.
