Re: How do I load an mp3 (audio book) into my Garmin?

If your audio book is in mp3 format you simply connect the USB cable to your unit and then drag and drop the mp3 files into the mp3 folder on the Nuvi650 device. If the audio books are in Audible format (.aa) then drag and drop them the same way into the Audible folder. Disconnect your unit from the computer and look for your audio book in the appropriate folder (mp3 or Audible) ... and no, mp3 Audiobooks and Audible Audiobooks are not the same format.

Will my garmin play music?

Yes, if it has a media player. The 660 will. It will play MP3's but you have to load the MP3's onto the GPS using a USB cable between the GPS and your PC.

Nuvi 660

You will have to buy them from Garmin for $69.95 but before you do that read the instruction book and do a FACTORY RESET.
This may bring everything back up.

Blue tooth phonebook

The unit does not save the phone book, it loads it each time your bluetooth phone is in contact with it. To verify this, turn off the bluetooth phone, then try to access the phone book in the GPS unit. It should not come up.

Garmin Nuvi 650 660 680 6XX SD Card PNY 4GB SDHC Works

just got my A-Data 8GB card today and proceeded to load it up with 7.2GB of MP3s (nearly full capacity).

I timed with my wrist watch the bootup times and there was no difference in the boot times whether the SD card loaded up with MP3's was inserted in the unit or not. What did change is that even one minute after booting up the songs wouldn't show up in the "MP3 Player" window, it just had a blanked out browse button and a generic icon like it has when no music is loaded.

It took a full 90 seconds or so for the MP3 player to actually become responsive and show my selections, but after that it was working normally (from what I can tell).

Best Regards,

Audiobooks on a Garmin Nuvi 650 GPS

I just read on the Garmin website that only regular MP3 files will work -- not books or music purchased through iTunes.
