Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver
There is no evidence of any sats beig located when looking at the sat data screen. There are no errors in the error log screens. The problem was at first intermittent and then came hard on. Occurred whilst driving with no screen changes at the time. All other aspects of the GPS are working ok.
Latest software has been loaded.
This unit has always been "suss" in satellite discovery. Have 760 as well that I use extensively, as well as Street pilot and an old model 45. Perhaps the last garmin I will buy.
Low battery level is one reason for poor connection to satellites. However your problem may be a faulty SIIRF chip. Now I have to say that connectinhg the unit prior to starting the engine can damage the chip so refrain fromn doing this in any future GPS operation. The reapair for bad chip if not under warranty is arms and legs cost
go to Marbella Australia ( Marbella Altina) website to look at two units in products area A 8010 and A860 I think both are excellent units well supportede and maps are Polstar for whatever country you need. use the contact button to make an enquiry or go to the order button you will be contacted back within hours, great service!
Garmin are OK but jolly expensive to repair and upgrade and have lousy backup service
If you decide to buy a relaible GPS get an ALTINA they make the boards for most GPS units on the market Except tom Tom and Mio which are cheap and nasty there are so many faults on those brands on this forum i am surprised they are still in business.
