Garmin offer new maps, the majority in different formats such as online downloads, pre-loaded SD cards, or on DVD.

However, these are pretty costly for all they are worth. For the same price as a map, you could easily buy a brand new device with full EU maps.

SOURCE: Garmin nuvi 660 goes into

There is a transient diode across the switch. Most likely it's shorted, casuing the symptom as if you were holding down the power switch and never letting go. I've seen and repaired this before.

Garmin nuvi 660 goes into pre-boot mode, then loading, then loading software, then back to pre-boot mode and keeps looping through the 3 steps, and it won't shut down

Charging doesn't display map when charging


I learned that with the unit off - hold the on button down - don't release it. A PRE-BOOT MODE message will appear at the bottom and may flash. Continue holding down the start button. The first time I did it a series of dots came on the screen and I was instructed to touch each one. After that it started as normal. I plugged into a wall charger and but git the pc and nuvi icons again. I repeated the process - holding the on button on and let the PRE-BOOT MODE appear and kept holding but this time a different message came on and then the PRE-BOOT MODE appeared again. I let it go and took the unit to my car and plugged it into the Garmin car charger and it worked as it used to - normal. However, when I plugged it back in the house to the wall charged I got the pc and nuvi icon again. It appears that I am using the wrong wall charger as a previous writes stated. But the nuvi still worked in the car plugged into the nuvi charger. I hope this helps.

In case it is a software problem try this and see if it will fix it......follow these steps.
1. Power off the unit.
2. HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display. KEEP HOLDING the power button down and the display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode message disappears. This seems to take a long time (60 seconds at least).
3. Once the pre boot mode message disappears release the power button and your device will perform some activites to try recover from the problem.

Stuck with pre boot mode on screen


"Will not turn off, stuck on with display saying 'pre boot mode'. Does nothing but this - please help!"

This indicates that the on/off switch is shorted out. You can duplicate this problem by taking a working Nuvi and keep holding down the on/off button when turning it on. It will stay in this mode until you let off on the power on/off button.

Are you running this unit while it is charging? Does the Nuvi 660 have a sufficient charge?

Try to do a hard reset on the unit.

Won't acquire satellite


There is currently an Update (Vers 5.10) available at Garmin.com Check only the Nuvi 350 click on it and the Nuvi 350 will appear. In the Upper Right Corner you will see a Category of Updates. Click on it and you will be advised that you need to Download UpDater. Do so, uncompress it, then attach your Nuvi to your computer and run Update. It's simple, just follow the instructions on the screen. However, it sometimes take a couple of tries before the Nuvi actually accepts and shows that it has been updated to Vers 5.10 I guess I was lucky. Mine accepted the new update with the 2nd install but it sometimes takes 4 or more. If you are uncomfortable with the foregoing or it doesn't work for you contact Technical support at Garmin. They are really helpful and you can e-mail them at techsupp@garmin.com
