Trying to input address and cannot type in street, gets three letters and goes to street name and won't let me continue to type actual name

Thank you for your question.

Go to the website. Check for an "update for your Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver. Download the update which may take a while. It's best to start downloading and go do something else for a while until the download is complete.

If this doesn't work, contact support at Garmin.

Go to the Garmin website now (click here)

If your unit was around $100 or so, it's easier to just buy a new one then to send yours in for service.

I found a discounted unit online:

Discounted Garmin GPS

Hope this helps you solve your GPS problem.

Corrupted the software

It depends on how the files were corrupted. If the source of the corruption is not physical or magnetic damage to the memory chip where the software is stored, you should be able to reinstall the operating system software and the new maps right from your own PC.

First I would recommend going to the Nuvi 660 page in the Garmin website, look for the link to "downloads and updates", and download the most recent software update. The update is free.

Once you have done that, try reinstalling your maps. You can only load Garmin maps into your Nuvi.

If you are in the US and your memory storage is not damaged, I can update your GPS and install the map for you if you prefer.

Trouble with garmin 660 GPS

My Garmin 660 after going thru the initial start up of "loading map" it will just SHUTDOWN. I have tried to clear the data in the diagnostic menu as recomendated by Garmin support to no avail. At the start, the trouble is it will just stay in the loading map stage. Then later it begin to shutdown.

Nuvi 660 not working

1-Check if you have 500 waypoints, Thats the maximum.

Be sure you delete the recents search via the menu. the recent use when you did a search for a place or adress, just delete.

2- could you confirm both of you if you did not add any other maps into the units ?

3- How many MP3 you have into the GARMIN files ?

Need this to answer your question properly ?

It should not happen if you did not overload the unit 660.

Everything has a maximum who is published by the manufacturer.

Best regards
