Plug your 660 with usb into the usb port, computer must not set on sleeping mode (screensaver).

It will take 3-4 hours to be full charge

The limited directions tell me to charge my Garmin 1450 for at least 4 hours. How is that done without a charger? Will it charge with the computer cable? It seems that your site will not allow me to...


Hello,

The nuvi will accept a charge when connected to a computer if the computer connection is done through a powered USB port.
Garmin part number 010-10723-00 which is an AC power adapter is also available for charging the unit.

I don't know how to register my new Garmin nuvi so we can receive the free map updates when our machine is turned on


If the unit is new you get a free map update within the first few months after that they will charge a fee, but you can still update the unit for software and fixes.
Here is what you need to do to update the map your Garmi nuvi; first make sure the unit is fully charged, then go to the Garmin web site and register your product. Next download Garmin Updater and connect your nuvi with a USB cable directly to your computer and not thru a USB hub. Let the update go directly to the GPS and not a folder. It will take a few hours even with a fast internet connection. When done follow the instructions on your screen. I have attached a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

Nuvi660,,,


Ok, first of all, in order to PIN lock the unit, you have to enter the same exact 4 numbers twice in a row. Even if your 2 year old was coordinated enough to do that, the security location for the unit is the location at which the PIN was entered. Therefore, assuming you were not touring Europe at the time the PIN was entered, the unit would unlock whenever you returned to where the unit was locked originally.

No, resetting the unit will NOT reset or remove the PIN. The only other thing you can do is send the unit back to Garmin. But beware: if you cannot prove to Garmin you legitimately purchased this unit, they will NOT return it to you.

My new nuvi 255w will not start displaying info


When using a usb from your computer it is only a trickle
charge to the garmin. Will take a day or two to fully charge. If you use a the cigarette lighter plug that came WITH the garmin, it will fully charge in 4 hours. Stick with garmin approved plugs and all will go smooth. I know, I made the same error.

Garmin 2005 will not charge, new in November of


Make sure the internal battery is charged by connecting it to your computer with the included USB cable. Make sure the computer is on and running. Let it charge at least a couple of hours and then try to turn the GPS on while still connected to the computer. If the unit still will not turn on you might need to return it to Garmin.
