Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Garmin comes through

I had the same problem with the external speakers not working. I called Garmin customer service and, even though my unit was out of warranty, they replaced it. I just got the replacement today. Good company. I'm thinkin' they must be aware of the defect. I suggest others do the same.

No car radio / stereo for use with Garmin nuvi 750 GPS


Every Garmin Nuvi unit I've seen has a (loud) built-in speaker. The only demand our 250s and 265 make of the vehicle is a 12V power supply (and they'll even work without that for a while, until the battery goes flat).

Missing the letter S


I called Garmin customer service and they told me to plug the unit into my computer and it would reset itself and all the letters would be restored. I did this and it worked! I realize the usb cable does not come with the Garmin nuvi 250, however you may have a cable that came with a cell phone or a digital camera. My camera cable worked great.

Garmin Nuvi always behind


Is WAAS enabled? If not then turn it on. This will give you better accuracy. You could also try using an external antenna if something inside the car or the windshield is causing interference with the GPS signal.

How fast are you traveling when approaching the turn?

Failure to acquire satellite


To reset the unit, pry off the silver faceplate.
Turn the unit on using the power button on the right side.
Press the reset button that was hidden behind the face plate.
The GPS unit should restart, and display its software version.
Make a note of the software version in case you have to call customer service.
To acquire satellites make sure the GPS has a clear view of the sky.

For Garmin customer service, call 800-800-1020.

GPS GARMIN 340 turn it off by itself.


Does the unit comes on by itself once power is applied to the unit? If it doesn't come on by itself, then there is a problem with your power supply. The unit is designed to detect when an external power supply is applied and turn itself on. It is also designed design to detect if you unplug the unit from the external power supply. It will say "Lost external power, shutting down in 30 seconds". BTW are using Garmin cables?
