It would appeasr you have no satellite connection to reset it to a new destination. Make sure the battery is fully charged first and that you are in a location that is clear to the sky. 3 mins maximum to connect is what should happen. Ifr at any time you have started the engine with the GPS connected it could and does affect the SIIRF chip and will never work again. It also damages the battery over time.

Check that you can even access the satellites by using settings.

I bought a used 660 on ebay, it seems to have some propriotory splash page and on display page there is no option to change splashpage. how do i get it back? also on whereto page there is no go home...


At the menu, press the wrench (settings), then the display icon. On the display menu, select "splashscreen" and you'll be able to change the boot-up screen if there are other images on the unit. You can add your own images by uploading them to the unit via a USB cable connected between the GPS and Nuvi.

You have to set a location as the HOME destination first. If you already entered your home address, press "WHERE TO", then "FAVORITES" and click on your home address. Select EDIT and you should see a prompt to set the address as your home address.

Do you have to type in your home address before you type in your destination address and do you always have to remove the map film covering to do so?


You can set your home destination so you don't need to enter it more than once. To do this;
  1. Press WHERE TO
  2. Press GO HOME
You'll be given a list of options. You can either enter your home address, Press SELECT CURRENT if you're at your home address, or select it from recently visited locations.

There's no need to enter it again. When you want to go home just press WHERE TO and then GO HOME.

The plastic film that covers the screen can be removed and left off

Was just given a TomTom and car adappter to use on my trip from MI to MD. I've never used a GPS and no manual was included how to program it from start to final destination


The TomTom only needs for you to enter your destination address. Once that's in, you're ready to go. Along your route you can tap the center of the screen to find POINTS OF INTEREST such as FOOD, LODGING, etc...but will retain destination info 'til either cleared or changed to new destination.

To enter your destination, tap center of screen. There you choose house address, business address or city's center. If you choose street address screen opens to:keyboard. Type in destination State, ie; Maryland. Once you've typed state, hit DONE in bottom right corner. The screen then goes to CITY. Type in destination city then hit done again. Follow the same steps for STREET NAME & HOUSE #. Click DONE & CONTINUE as prompted. TomTom will then target your location and you're ready to hit the road. It will show you your distance and time (ETA). It will also show you the speed limit where you are and the actual speed you are going.

When you pull over for gas, food, lodging, shopping, sight-seeing or whatever, it will automatically account for this and will continuously update your coordinates to get you back to the highway/road you need to be on. And when you're ready to come back to MI all you have to do is hit the home icon and it will automatically map your trip back.(Home is - or should be - set to the home address of the owner of the GPS).

All-in-All it is user friendly and very simple to use.

If you need additional info, please don't hesitate to ask.

I hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!
Have a great trip and drive safely. :-)

Changing home address


  • Tap the screen to bring up the menu
  • Tap the 'Change preferences' icon
  • Tap the arrow to the right to the 'Change home location' icon (looks like a house with a spanner)
  • Choose the best option to identify your address (postcode, address, recent destination, etc)

How to program a destination


In general, once you key in an address and then select a route, the name/route will be saved in "recent destinations." If you want to use that destination, just select it. If you want to add it to "Favorites", then select "Add Favorite" and all your recent destinations will appear. Select the one you want and rename it: E.g., instead of "220 W. Walnut St." rename it "Grandma's House" and it is set.
