Re: Change Home Location on Nuvi 660


Go into 'Where To', 'Favorites', 'HOME', 'Edit...', 'Delete'. Then from the main map screen you can tap the screen and 'Save' the location as your new home. You can't save a 'Home' location if there's already one called that in memory, so you have to delete the old one first.


(I have a 680, but I assume it's the same)

I bought a used 660 on ebay, it seems to have some propriotory splash page and on display page there is no option to change splashpage. how do i get it back? also on whereto page there is no go home...

At the menu, press the wrench (settings), then the display icon. On the display menu, select "splashscreen" and you'll be able to change the boot-up screen if there are other images on the unit. You can add your own images by uploading them to the unit via a USB cable connected between the GPS and Nuvi.

You have to set a location as the HOME destination first. If you already entered your home address, press "WHERE TO", then "FAVORITES" and click on your home address. Select EDIT and you should see a prompt to set the address as your home address.

Default state changing

If you are talking about your home location all you have to do is go to your TOOLS / MY DATA / SET HOME LOCATION. You can then set your HOME location to anywhere you want. This is the only default location I am aware of. If this isn't what you were looking for let me know and I can dig into it.

I know my PIN number but can't remember my security location. My wife has the Garmin and it's stating "invalid pin" she accidentaly entered the address of the location instead of the pin. Now she getting...

Sometimes this happen to me when I fumble the PIN entry. I have to switch it off and then re-start and enter the PIN more carefully. When choosing a secret unlock location, choose somewhere other than your home - it can be nearby but noe AT home. This is case a thief finds where you live and takes the nuvi there as most people make Home the Unlock Location.

Starting point is wrong

As you are turning on the unit press and hold the lower right corner then it will come up with a reset option. Reset the unit. If that does not work please reply back with the model of your Nuvi unit.

Take the GPS unit to your secure location, and once there, you can change the PIN number.

Resetting Home

I'm not sure I understand the question. When you take the unit outside and turn it on, does it show you in Tampa, or Decatur? If it still shows you in Tampa check the satellite status in the tools menu, you may not be acquiring your current location.

If you're talking about the home location that is saved into your GPS as a waypoint, go into your favorite places list and delete the place named "home" then go to the location you want to save as your new home and press "where to" and then "home". Since there is no home saved, the GPS will ask if you want to save your current location as home. That should do it for you.

Forget my gps nuvi pin

There is no way to unlock a locked GPS without the PIN or going to the location where the PIN was set. If you do not know these, the unit must be sent back to Garmin.
