Question about Garmin GPS

1 Answer

I have a Garmin Nuvi 660 euro, and i have just applied the 4.70 update direct from the garmin site. The unit starts up and then randomly switches off after between 10 and 30 seconds. I have tried the pre boot reset but no joy. Is there a facility to roll back the drivers like you can on a PC. What do you think??

    Jim, good advice fella, spot on. I ran the update after hooking it up to a power source and it went in first time. The battery was fully charged before i did the initial update, before you say it.



    Cheers

The update should not have affected the proper operation of your Nuvi unless it was a bad flash. I would try to reflash the firmware again and make sure you properly disconnect the Nuvi from the PC by choosing the safely remove function. Also, make sure your battery is charged and don't press the on/off switch at all while its reflashing or rebooting. However, yes there is a site that offers older firmware versions.

How do you download updated maps to he garmin nuvi


You can purchase map updates from stores that sell the units, or new this year you can buy updates for the life of your unit from the Garmin website which cost $120. You can get up to 4 updates per year. If you wish you can just purchase a single update for $70.

Also download the Garmin Webupdater software from the site which allows you to connect the Nuvi to your computer and will give you free software updates for the unit itself.

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.

Can you update the firmware on your unit
my k800i sony phone had a problem synchronising and would freeze, then one day the nuvi 660 updated the firmware by itself and has been fine since, only problem being the volume, a bit low when trying to contest with large diesel engine, onboard speaker keen to distort over 80% volume

Have you updated the software since you purchased the unit? If not, go to Garmin's site, download WebUpdater and check to see if there is an update to the unit's software. If so, download this and see if it helps. If not, try downloading the same version of the software again. This might help also.
