Garmin 660 turns on but cannot acquire satellite. It asks if I am indoors and the date is wrong... the current street map is the last address entered. Please advise


update the firmware of the unit on garmins website www.garmin.com
I have seen this fix that problem multiple times. If you already have the current version reload it. If that all fails then its probably something physically wrong with it and needs to be sent in for repairs.

Garmin Nuvi 660 cannot acquire satellites


Hi I had this problem and its an antenna fault, give garmin a call and see if yours is still under warranty, if it is they will tell you to take it back to the retailor who will call garmin for a RA Number and they will replace it there and then. If your warranty has run out then call garmin to ask about repairs

Garmin Nuvi takes a long time to Acquire satellite


No. 98% of the time it took 45-56 seonds for your NUVI 660. Thats the compagny set up time acquisition and it did very well.

Be sur you had your flip antenna parallel to earth surface.
660 has THE BEST SIRF Chipset for acquiring satellite.

I had 2 NUVI 660 since 2 years. It work much better than those new 7xx series who it really took 2-3 minutes to acquire satellite.

Be sure you update your version to the last one.
