Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Deleted MP3 files still play on my Nuvi 660.

After getting my Nuvi 660, I added some MP3 files to it , then I decided to move those mp3 files and put them in the 2 GB sd memory card that I bought. My problem is , despite deleting the mp3 files from nuvi 660 , they can still play back without the sd memory card being inserted. I have searched the 660 hard drive but to no avail. I need to remove those hidden mp3 files , any suggestions ! Thanks

My nuvi 760 doesn't play sounds anymore - through the speaker or through the earphone jack. I deleted some mp3 files a while back and I wonder if I accidentaly delted a audio driver file. I'd like to check...

No, there ar no audio drivers. If you use the headphone jack a lot, it coul dbe that the headphone jack has broken loose from the board. The headphone jack also controls audio to the speaker. The headphone jack must either be resoldered to the board or replaced. Please see this link:

How do i put music on nuvi 360

You need to connect your Nuvi to your PC using a Mini-USB to USB cable. This cable should have come as an accessory with your Nuvi 360.

Connect the cable betwen the two and you should see the a PC icon show up on your Nuvi and the Nuvi will show up in your Windows directory as a storage drive... usually drive "G".

The files have to be in MP3 format (.mp3 extension). You can right click on the MP3 file on your PC and select copy, then go to the Nuvi directory and paste it into the directory folder named "MP3" on your Nuvi.

Thats it.... now make sure you "SAFELY REMOVE" the drive in windows before you unplug the cable.

When you select the MP3 player on your Nuvi, select the browse button and you should find your MP3 files.

Garmin nuvi 760, don't seem to be able to load music onto it

I have a 660, and it works fine from the sd card. Make sure the files are .mp3 and that you toggle the source from the mp3 player screen. Can you see the files in browse mode ?

Loading mp3 files to garmin nuvi 350

The device is not recognizing the file name. The Garmin GPS will only recognize MP3 files. Ipod (MP4) and other media files will not play. Converting the files to the MP3 format will correct the problem.

How do you get SD cards to play ???

Are the songs in MP3 format? Typically you connect the GPS to the PC using the USB interface and using Windows Explorer, drag & drop the MP3 files into the GPS's MP3 subdirectory.

Then on the main screen, select travel tools and then the MP3 player. Select browse and choose a song.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

When you connect your Garmin to your PC (using the USB lead)you should see the Garmin as a removable drive. Just use the file manager (Windows Explorer) to transfer the mp3 files from your pc to your Garmin MP3 directory.

No need to format and please do not try to change anything from the GARMIN files.

MP3 only can be read. Use SD to read or you can drop into the proper file when you plug to your computer. The file name GARMIN include many files. One of them is for MP3 , you will see example of music inside. Please do not play with other GARMIN FILES or you will had some problems with your unit.
Please refer to your manual 650, for the proper way to listen or insert MP3.


best regards

Use the USB cable supplied with your Garmin GPS and plug the small end of the cable into your GPS and the other end (USB plug) into any USB port on your PC. Windows should detect the USB device and now show the Garmin GPS as being a removable drive in your Windows directory. All you have to do is locate a MP3 file on your PC and drop and drag it into the drive number that WIndows has assigned the GPS. You can also right-click on the MP3 file, select "COPY" and then click on the Windows drive number assigned to the GPS, go into that directory and right-click "PASTE" to copy the MP3 file to the GPS. The GPS will only play "TRUE" MP3 files.
