Please read the solution that resolved this problem for someone else. Most likely, you have already tried this. However, the antenna of your Nuvi 660 is the same as the 3xx Nuvi series. I know this because I have worked on them.

If the above procedure does not work for you, the entire antenna assembly will need to be replaced.
The other option is to purchase an external antenna for your Nuvi and plug it into the external antenna port (gold connector) on the Nuvi antenna assembly.

Best wishes,

My garmin nuvi 660 stopped receiving satellite signal. Reset has no effect. Everything else seem to work.


Power your unit on outside, make sure you have a clear view of the sky. If your unit is working properly, then it should pick up the satellites. If so, then you can put the unit back in your vehicle and make sure it is positioned to maintain a satellite lock. If you cannot acquire satellites outside, then the unit is defective.

Garmin Nuvi 660 cannot acquire satellites


Hi I had this problem and its an antenna fault, give garmin a call and see if yours is still under warranty, if it is they will tell you to take it back to the retailor who will call garmin for a RA Number and they will replace it there and then. If your warranty has run out then call garmin to ask about repairs

Try performing a reset of the unit. Hold down the bottom right of the touchscreen and turn the unit on. It will ask you whether you want to reset allk data. Choose yes and try again. This should solve your problem. Hope this helps.

660, hangs up totally after ca. 40mins use


Hi Martin,

It sounds like a corrupted firmware update. Please go to this site:

http://gpsinformation.org/perry/nuvi/

I believe the latest firmware version for a 660 is v4.7. You can try reflashing the firmware with v4.7 or trying an earlier version. Let me know if this resolves your issue.

Also, the Nuvi can lag if you have large picture files on an inserted SD card.

Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Can't find Satellites


Try this and see if it fixes your problem...first disable bluetooth then follow these steps....

1. Power off the unit.

2. HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display. KEEP HOLDING the power button down and the display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode message disappears. This seems to take a long time (60 seconds at least).

3. Once the pre boot mode message disappears release the power button and your device will perform some activites to recover from the problem.

Garmin Nuvi takes a long time to Acquire satellite


No. 98% of the time it took 45-56 seonds for your NUVI 660. Thats the compagny set up time acquisition and it did very well.

Be sur you had your flip antenna parallel to earth surface.
660 has THE BEST SIRF Chipset for acquiring satellite.

I had 2 NUVI 660 since 2 years. It work much better than those new 7xx series who it really took 2-3 minutes to acquire satellite.

Be sure you update your version to the last one.
