Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver
660T worked beautifully for ca. 2 years all over Europe. I then updated sys software from Garmin site, shortly after this (but possibly unrelated), it began to hang up completely after about 40mins use. It was on, was fully-charged and connected to power, display frozen, touchscreen inactive and nothing happening. If reset, the same hang up occured at say 20mins later, reset then 10 minutes later, and so on until I might get 2 minutes If lucky before freezing after reset. If I then leave it turned off for a long time I'll again get the 40 mins before freeze up etc as above. Sys softare is most current and I also paid for new mapping few weeks back - which I effectively can't use - had hoped installing this might help - it didn't - and cost me. Very annoyed with zero response from Garmin (probably Garmin-UK).
Can anyone email me the original sys software perhaps, might make this problem go away - it worked fine for me before. Other ideas?

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