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

I had the same problem and was able to resolve it using the procedure (listed below) from Audible technical support. It's wordy, but the long and short of it is that you need to activate the Nuvi on a PC machine, then you can use it on the Mac. To transfer files, open iTunes audiobook window, then drag your books of choice from that window to the Nuvi icon on the desktop. I had no problems using this procedure.
Thank you for contacting Audible.com. On its behalf, I would like to apologize for any inconvenience and I am most committed to satisfying and resolving your inquiry to the fullest of my abilities.
As per your email I understand that you wish to use your Garmin GPS with Audible on your Mac.
Unfortunately, the Garmin is not supported on a Mac with Audible audiobooks unless it is first activated on a Windows PC. If you have access to a Windows PC please follow the requested steps below to activate it on a PC first. Once successfully activated you will be able to use your Mac to transfer your audiobooks onto it.
If you have access to a Windows PC to activate your Garmin GPS through the Audible Manager software please do the following to get started.
Make sure Audible Manager is installed in your PC, otherwise please go to: Audible Software page ( www.audible.com/software ) and download the version for Download for Windows 2000, XP, or Vista.

If Audible Manager is already installed on your PC: Launch Audible Manager, click on Devices > Add new device. You will be asked to connect to the Internet. Click Yes to connect. From the list of devices, select the Garmin GPS Devices, and click ok.
Once installed successfully now please follow the requested steps to activate your Garmin Nuvi using the Audible Manager software.
Ensure that the device is connected to the PC and Internal Memory is selected to activate the Main Memory of your GPS. Please note you may transfer your audiobooks onto the SD card as well if you have one.
Right-click the Garmin plugin in the bottom left corner of Audible Manager ( below Mobile Devices ) and choose activate.
After entering your username and password, click ok.
Once your Garmin has been successfully activated using a Windows PC you may now use your Mac to transfer your Audible audiobooks to your Gramin.
Before you can transfer your audiobooks on to your Garmin device please follow the requested steps below to download your audiobooks.
Please log into your Audible Account, Click on My Library on the top of the page next to Home, Once you are in your online library towards your right hand side, you will find a tab called "Download It". This will start your download action from our server to your computer.

SOURCE: garmin 660 locked up / frozen
Resetting the device merely resets the power connection, on some devices there is a reset to manufacturer defaults on settings, but not your stored data. Working with GPS's 40 hours a week I constantly have to use the reset button when they lock up. Just press it in for a few seconds then if it doesn't power back up just hit the power button and everything should be fine.

If you can hear audio through the headphone jack but not the internal speaker jack, then the speaker is bad.
This is a problem I have seen many times before. I will be posting an article soon on how to replace the internal speaker, however this is not a repair that just anyone can do.
You have to have skills in dissassembly & soldering.

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)
