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,
- Jim

Tip

Unlock Garmin GPS


Hi,

As of now, one of the Frequently Asked problem :-

Unlocking of Garmin GPS?

The Default Code for Most of the Garmin GPS is 1234. ( Unless Refer to Your Manual for the Default Code ). This is a Security Measure and there is NO BYPASS. There is No Website and there is NO ONE OTHER THAN GARMIN who could Unlock your Device, in case if you Forget the PIN.

The Only other Solution, you could take the GPS to the place where it was Changed, It would Unlock Automatically and then you could try to Change the PIN.

You need to Contact Garmin and send it with the Receipt of Purchase. They would charge you around $100 to get it Unlocked.

Remember - Better to remember the Passwords and make sure, if you buy it from ebay or any of the Selling Sites, it should be unlocked unless Contact the Seller or Claim a Dispute.

Thanks and have a nice day!!

I push start button and hold this more than 2 seconds but the starting screen is not opening i also connect to battery charger from car and then pushing again to start but no reaction i have tomtom...


The issue could be a low power in the Tomtom and that is the reason it is not switching on. Now here the problem could be with the charging cable/wire from the car charger which might not be giving power to the GPS. Check for the fuse at the connector.
If the fuse is blown off the power wont goes into the GPS and it wont get charged and wont swich on. Look at the tip of the connector which has that spring like contact. You will be able to turn that to open it and find a fuse. Replace it with the right "amp" as the existing one. You will get one from Radioshack.
If you have already checked it and sure it is charging could be issue with Tomtom itself..Good luckKris..

Yes you can charge your satnav through your pc using the mini USB lead. It will take approx 8 hours to charge fully compared to 4 hours using a car charger or a mains charger.

How do I register and charge my Magellan GPS


In order to "register" your Mag_1440 (or any other Magellan), you need to create an account on the Magellan_GPS Web-Site. You will basically supply your name, address, tel_number, e_mail, and the model and serial_number of your GPS... Once you have created your account and registered you GPS, you may be prompted with Links for software and/or map updates... As far as "charging" the 1440/1470, you only need to plug the GPS_Unit into the Car/Auto_Cigarette outlet via the 12v power cord that came supplied in your package... One can also use any standard 120v (AC) to Mini_USB charger (i.e Motorola Razr Cell-Phone AC_Power-Pack) to charge up the GPS unit...Unfortunately, the Computer_USB to Mini_USB cable (in the box) supposedly will NOT power/charge up the GPS... This Mini_USB cable is used to download the latest firmware (v2-20) onto the GPS (approx. 75_MB)... Therefore, before you attempt to download the latest firmware onto the 1440/1445/1470, be sure that it has been sufficiently charged via the Car_Adpater, or an auxilliary AC-Power Adpater... Hope this helps...

TomTom was stolen can i close my account so the thief can't charge to it?


no one can access your account but you.
so if someone steals your tomtom device they will not know your tomtom account.
just keep the account for history purposes if you have made any payments on it.

Nuvi 650


Hello Grumpa1350,

There are several possible reasons why a GPS unit might not turn on. For example, there could be something wrong with the charger such as a blown fuse, bad power adapter, or defective cable connection. The internal battery inside of the GPS also might be defective or worn-out. Or, worse yet, the unit may have a more serious hardware fault.

You don't say how you are charging the unit. I'd recommend trying a different charge method. The GPS can be charged one of three ways: connection to you car via the automobile power cord, connection to your computer via a USB cable, or charging from a wall outlet using an optional AC adapter. If you are charging the unit in your car, try connecting it to your computer (or vice versa). If the GPS turns on after being charged using one method but not the other, then that pretty much tells you that the problem is with the cable or adapter being used for charging.

The Garmin NUVI 650 does not contain an internal fuse, but there is a common 3 amp fast-blow fuse located in the vehicle power cord. If you find that the problem happens when trying to charge the unit in your vehicle, then you should change this fuse and see if that corrects the issue. The fuse can be replaced by unscrewing the black round piece at the end of the cigarette lighter plug.

If the unit does not turn on regardless of what charge method you use, then the fault is likely with the GPS itself. Either the internal battery would need to be replaced or the unit would need to be serviced to correct whatever hardware fault is causing the problem.

I would recommend you contact the manufacturer before you attempt to open up the unit. Opening the case of the GPS may void your manufacturer's warranty (if the unit is still under warranty).

Best regards,
Ken
