Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver
Recently updated Garmin Nuvi 650 online.
Will charge OK in house, but will not hold charge in car while driving- it drains off home charge, then will keep shutting itself off in the car after the in- home charge is low enough. Tried it in another car and it still did not work, so it seems like it is the plug in for the car that is not taking in power?? Or is it in the part that clips into the back of the unit with it's connectors?? We need this for a trip in the near future. Please advise!

push and Hold the power button down while you push reset, keep power button pressed til it boots again. If it does not, and it's in warranty ship it to garmin. If it's out of warranty, have someone open it up and remove the battery for a couple of minutes.

Sounds like you both have a battery problem. I experienced a similar problem when trying to charge via the USB-cable connected to my computer.
Ended up buying an original charger (expensive) and the charging went smooth.
The car charger should in any case work fine, so probably your battery is not very healthy.
Try holding your finger on the battery symbol for about 10 sec. The unit will then switch to a technical page. There you can observe the battery and charging voltage. When I plug in my computer USB-cable, I read around 4,4V and that is not sufficient for charging my battery.
When connected to the original charger, this voltage rises to about 5V which gives a nice charge. When unplugging charger, the unit displays the battery capacity. If the charging voltage is OK, but battery capacity drops quickly after you unplug charger cable, the battery is probably bad. (Of course you have to charge is for some time) I think around 4V battery voltage give 100% capacity. 3,9V gives about 90% capacity.
This will not solve your problem, but can give you an idea about what is wrong.

If you can access your memory space, check to be sure its not low on memory. otherwise, you may have to reset it to facory setting or upgrade the firmware.
