Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Traffic info (or lack of) with Nuivi 610T

The 610T comes with "FM Traffic Alert". Mine, new 4 weeks ago, has never indicated any such notification and scanning for providers finds nothing. Garmin don't seem to be able to help.
Any suggestions?

    Are you in a sparsly populated area? it may not support your feature in your area... now if your in a metro area like pheonix or NYC then it should work... (It works in my area) Some areas may not have the coverage because there is no providers around.

No, I Iive close to the M11, A14, A11 in North Essex, England...and the problem continues. Really I've given up. Having tried mounting the arial in different positions in the car (both horizontally and vertically behind the front windscreen) I still have not "linked" with Trafficmaster and the only subscriptions showing are one for the USA and one for France. Fat lot of good that does me!!!!

Faint beeping sound

Someone lose a cellphone? Could be a phone function for call message on the built-in sync. There is a speed alert function for going over a predetermined speed setting. There are traffic alert tones from the Mytouch Navigation. They even have an Alarm clock and interval Alert (every selected minutes). Could be a mileage count to tone after each passing mile.

Hello, I have a Garmin nuvi 3790T GPS and also the cable with built-in FM receiver. How can I receive traffic alerts? Do I need to purchase anything? Technically I am a novice, hope you can help. Thank...

To make it work, buy a subscription on a traffic alert service (RDS - TMC) available in your region/country at For crossborder service buy the traffic service there too.

Its possible to buy a lifetime variant - meaning it will stay active for your receiver.

It does not alert me of traffic jams

¹Lifetime traffic extends for the useful life of your Garmin traffic receiver (as long as you own a compatible Garmin GPS) or (READ THIS---)----> as long as Garmin receives traffic data from its traffic supplier, whichever is shorter. (AND THIS------>Traffic content not available for all areas. See for traffic coverage areas and for program License Agreement containing complete terms and conditions.

Sounds like either the system is not getting the updates or else the updates are not being provided, but either way something is not happening someplace. Or maybe you have the traffic system shut off because it was annoying you one day.

Hope this helps

Tomtom still charges but traffic receiver stopped working

I'm using the TomTom Go 730T - I think this is the latest and the last TT with Traffic because TT stopped supplying this option. I'm having the same problem from time to time but a reset helps. Just press the Reset button and after restarting the traffic option is back. Janos

2005 Grand Jeep Cherokee Copmuter Updates

I would call the area zone manager.
If this dealership has been your only service utility I would ask the Service Manager if he could charge it out to another vehicle VIN number.
This may seem underhanded but I know it happens for good customers.

Missing new text message notification and alert sound

well i am not so sure about what would have went wrong..but you can check if you have enabled Screened messages. In that case messages do come but they directly go into the screened messages.

Garmin 265WT - fm traffic

I called Garmin about the same issue. If you will turn it on and are in one of the 50 metro areas covered it will automatically receive trraffic updates. That is exactly what I did and it worked and I got the same message you did. You do NOT have to sign up, get a code, or anything. Just turn it on in one of the areas and watch for the traffic symbol on the uper left hand side.
