    It worked fine and then one day, whenever I would try to spell anything, it would freeze.  And now it turns off completely.  Is there any way to fix it.

Sounds like corrupted firmware. Go to www.garmin.com and download their webupdater. Run it and connect a USB cable between your Nuvi and the PC. Let the webupdater look to see if there are any firmware updates. If so, install them. If not, let it reflash your current version.

When I go to spell a state, the screen goes immediately to the Select State Screen. It will not allow me to spell the state.


When you type a stae it will automatically show the list of states you can scroll down to check if the states is in the list or if the states is not recognize try to check the region make sure your in lower 48 states.

Unable to use spelling option


Option 1: Use the reset button under the antenna.
Option 2: with the nuvi on, press and hold the upper right corner of the touchscreen until a message pops up about erasing all user data, tap yes, it will roll back to factory state. Now connect it to the usb port, of the computer, go to the garmin site and download and install webupdater and let is check if the machine is up to date software wise. let it install the required updates. When finished, power down, power up and try again to find places. BTW any SD cards installed? If yes, remove that card.

Cannot select another state on Garmin 660.


1. From the Where To? View Map, Travel Kit page press WHERE TO

2. Press ADDRESS

3. Press SPELL STATE (should be the 2nd blue box on the page & may read SPELL COUNTY)

4. Press the letter K and Kansas + Kentucky will come up; Press the letter T and Tennessee + Texas will come up, etcetera

5. If the information does not automatically appear, hit DONE and the information will appear. For example on my nuvi 660 if I hit the letter “A” nothing happens until I hit DONE.

6. After pressing the single letter for the sate/province in which you are interested, the unit will prompt you to spell the CITY name.

You will then enter the information as it applies.
