Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

All of a sudden my "Touch screen" does not work!

I cannot use my garmin now b/c the touch screen doesn't work, so there is no way for me to navigate through the functions without the touch screen. Pretty bummed...i was hoping that it would have lasted for longer than 16 months.

My older garmin came with a remote and my touch screen went bad. So in order for me to use it at all, I have to use the remote control.

The touch screen doesn't work with my finger tip, only when my nail touchs screen, also did the screen calibration, did not not help


It may be a resistive screen rather than a capacitive screen which is not as sesitive to touch. You may need to use a stylus as it may need slight pressure vs just touch if it is a resistive screen.

Touch screen not responsive after speaker replacement It worked before speaker replacement.


To calibrate the touchscreen on a nuvi 300 or 600 series:

1. Power the unit On.

2. From the Where to? / View map screen, touch Settings (wrench icon).

3. Touch Display.

4. Touch Recalibrate.

5. A new screen will display that says Press Dot.

6. Touch the center of the dot.

7. Keep touching the center of the dot as it moves around the screen.

8. When Calibration Complete appears on the screen, please touch OK.

The touch-screen will now be recalibrated.

Garmin Nuvi 610- working perfectly then sudden crackling and now loss of sound/or at best crackly and intermiitent sound- but map/navigation and on-screen directions fine


Check the audio output setting on the nuvi. There is a possibility that the FM Transmitter setting has been turned on or that the device has been muted.
To check the audio output setting:
  1. Touch the Speaker icon below the Wrench icon.
  2. At the bottom of the screen, touch Audio Output.
  3. Make sure that the Internal Speaker is selected and touch OK (660, 670, 680, and 5000 models only).
  4. Make sure that the MUTE box does not have a check mark in it. If it does, touch the box to clear the selection.
  5. Make sure the volume level is at a reasonable percent level.

The touch screen will not work. can't navigate


The touchscreen needs to be replaced. I have run across a batch of touchscreens found in the Nuvi 6xx series that quit working even though they have no apparent physical damage to them. Apparently they are made from a different vendor than the ones the manufacturer was originally using. The only way to repair it is to replace it.

Touch screen on my Garmin Nuvi 660 just stopped functioning


If after a calibration the screen fails to respond then its the scrapheap i am afraid The cost of fix exceeds the value to replace
You could try a claim on insurance to have it replaced, especially if it was accidently dropped

Garmin Nuvi 660 touch screen freezes up. Soft


I sat on the phone for 30 minutes waiting for Garmin support when my Nuvi suddenly had no touch screen response. They had me delete a file on the device (with it hooked to my computer) then reboot and it went thru a touch screen alignment and it worked.

Sadly, it has frozen again and I don't recall the file (it had been a GCD file in all caps, that is all I know and I don't see a file in all caps any more). I will be calling support tomorrow.

My take is that it *is* a firmware thing *and* there is some way to reset the firmware.

Touch screen does not work


My c330 has a reset button if you take the outer frame off, and it's on the right hand (center) side. Also, I was having issues with my screen too. I work in construction, so I cleaned it around the screen and found a small piece of something which was obstructing my path. I cleaned it, and it works fine.
