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:

My garmin c330 turns off when plugged in, there's no-problem w/the cord or plug.


I had one that would do that when it was fully charged, might be your problem also.

Garmin 255W will not power on. The screen will flash the Garmin product screen and beep, but will never turn on. Its just over a year old. Any ideas?


I don't have this model, but have you tried charging the battery up before you attempt to switch it on? My sat nav will not switch on if the battery has died, just wondered if yours is the same. When mine was new the first thing I had to do was charge the battery (similar to a new mobile phone). This is worth a try.

Garmin Nuvi 265WT says loading loader


I left my GPS on and unplugged over night (I upgraded at 6pm) until the battery died. When I plugged it in to charge this morning it worked just fine with no problems.

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 won't turn on


I hope this helps, I had the same thing happen today. I noticed on the face under the word Garmin you can pop the face off and underneath on the right side is a reset button I held it down for 10 seconds popped the face back on and pressed the power button it came on. I hope this works for you.

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.
