Re: add Europe sd card to Garmin 660
No. When you plug in the SD card, the Nuvi will load the map from your SD card. Once you get to the main menu, select the wrench symbol, then the map symbol and then "map info". You should see both the US and Europe map. Make sure the Europe map is checked. You can uncheck the US map. This is how you switch between maps. The reason why you have to have the extra map on the SD card is because the Nuvi can only have one map on it's internal drive, one at a time.

CN North America NT 2015.40 ( Lower 49 States NE)
NE = NORTH EAST... California is not in the North East of the United states. This device only has a small internal memory so you need to use a 4 GB memory card and load maps to that card with MapInstall:
As long as you can see the software on the list of Maps, you'll be fine. It wont show any maps right now because there are no European maps for your present location, you need to be in Europe for the maps to show on the screen.
Buy the package first from Garmin.com
SD card, download, disc, which ever.
in your Menu, touch maps, map info, tick the box when loaded on the device.
You may need unit I.D. to activate it,
it's in your tools-system-about menu
and serial number on the bottom of device.
I hope this helps
The new maps will be unlocked to your GPS using the code Garmin supplied you.
You will have to add these maps to a second SD card if your present card is full, or else purchase a larger card. Since all the Mapsource NT 2008 Europe maps are 1,395MB in size, you'll need to purchase at least a 2GB SD card.
(Untried) For C330 owners that want to have both Canada and US 2008 map update on their GPS this is what you have to do.
Must have: 1 - Street pilot C330 2 - 512mb SD card 3 - SD card reader of some form (some cameras will suffice) 4 - Garmin 2008 Map Update North America
What to DO:
1 - connect the GPS to the computer 2 - Insert the Map update disk 3 - Install the Lower 48 states, United States (Reason - the C330 has around 1000mb of memory and the "US 48 states" map uses around 900mb" while Canada uses 400mb...which is why you will need that 512mb SD card later)
4 - Once the GPS is updated with the US map. Browse the Map update disk contents. This can be done with going to "My Computer" right click on your CD/DVD drive and click on "Explore"
5 - Open the folder called "img"
6 - Copy the file called "gmappromU.img" file is around 430mb. (This is the map file for Canada)
7 - Insert your SD card into your card reader and connect it to your computer. A window should pop up. If not you should see it on your "My Computer"
8 - Once you have navigated your way into the SD card directory. Create a folder on the SD card named "garmin" (no caps)
9 - Go into your newly created "garmin" folder right click and paste the "gmappromU.img" file. (This may take upto 20 to 30 mins)
10 - Once the process is complete, Rename the "gmappromU.img" file to --> "gmapsupp.img" (watch for spelling, no caps at all)
11 - Remove the SD card, Turn off your GPS, Insert SD card into GPS.
12 - Turn on GPS, let it load, and there you have it, the FULL North America Map.
When you are searching a state or province (depending where you are located) it will give you an option which map to use, Canada/Alaska or the lower 48 US states. Select your map and you are set to Go.
You cannot replace American maps with European maps. Garmin does this in order to protect the European retailers. The European SD card eliminates the need to load the maps into the 660, however, if you need to use the card slot to store extra data such as MP3s then you might be better off buying the 670.
