Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

Turn Garmin off

I am not able to find a way to turn my Garmin off. How does one do that? I just unplug the little thing and let it die and when I need it again, I plug it back into the lighter.

Does someone know how you go about turning tis little thing off and on.

    Same problem. Will not turn on without external power source and only turns off by removing from car adaptor or pushing reset button.

Have you tried holding down the on/off button for 3-4 seconds? Does this button work? If not, please read this article that I wrote:

Dark screen


It's either the logic board or some component that has gone bad. No real way to repair it, unless you tear it down and it's maybe a bad joint or something simple like that.
Best I can tell you to do is to FULLY discharge the battery, as in turn it on, let it die and keep pushing the power button to make sure it's dead. Takes about 48 hours. Once you do that, plug it in and DO NOT try to turn it on, just let it do it's thing and see what happens. Maybe hooking it to a computer after that and seeing if an update will help, also make sure that if there are any cables, external antennas, or cards plugged into it, to remove them during all of that. Best of luck for a resolution.

I have a nuvi 3790 s/n 1W6063565: James Gleason is my name. It died last night while on the road. Wasn't acting up before. I trave for a living throughout 5 Southern States. The icons were on, yet not...


  1. Start with the device turned off and unplugged from power.
  2. Power on the device.
  3. When the first copyright screen appears press and hold the lower right hand corner of the display portion of the touchscreen.

Frozen Screen


I had this problem and the only way to solve a frozen screen is to let the unit run out of battery and bring it back to life. Battery will die out on you for 6~8 hours. Once battery is dead you must do the following.

Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers

Garmin c530 wont power up. Did it once, took it apart and worked for a few days, died again.


Did you reset it? lift off the cover plate by slipping your fingernail into the little slot just beneath the Garmin logo. There is a reset button hidden under the cover...

My garmin c340, only a few months old just died--cannot get it to turn on and it definitely is not the fuse. Help!!


I took the faceplate off very gently starting under "garmin". I plugged it into the cig lighter in my car and turned my car on. I pressed the reset button and it turned on (THANK GOD!!). I then let it charge a little.
