Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Cannot select another state on Garmin 660.

I live in Virginia, but very close to Washington DC and Maryland.
After I used my Garmin in Virginia for a while, I cannot change state anymore.
When select 'Where to go' and 'Address' it says:

'In which county is the address?' and state is automatically displayed as Virginia.
How can I go to the 'Select State' menu.
thanks a lot,

Re: Cannot select another state on Garmin 660.

1. From the Where To? View Map, Travel Kit page press WHERE TO

2. Press ADDRESS

3. Press SPELL STATE (should be the 2nd blue box on the page & may read SPELL COUNTY)

4. Press the letter K and Kansas + Kentucky will come up; Press the letter T and Tennessee + Texas will come up, etcetera

5. If the information does not automatically appear, hit DONE and the information will appear. For example on my nuvi 660 if I hit the letter “A” nothing happens until I hit DONE.

6. After pressing the single letter for the sate/province in which you are interested, the unit will prompt you to spell the CITY name.

You will then enter the information as it applies.

I have a garmin nuvi 680 when I push where to, then address it goes to my home state of Pennsylvania how do I change the state to virginia I see no when on screen to do this

Press Where to, and Address, In the bottom right hand corner you will see Change State/Country press it then select Spell State/Province - Type Virginia.
If not working, It could also be Penn saved in your favorite places, on Menu, select where to, favorite, and edit it from there. If you want Virginia to be your home state, but you already have Penn saved as your home state, you will have to delete Penn first before you make Virginia is your home state. You will do it from where to, favorite, home, edit, and delete, and you can set new home state by press Where to, Go home and set for Virginia.
Hope the helps
