If you can hear audio through the headphone jack but not the internal speaker jack, then the speaker is bad.
This is a problem I have seen many times before. I will be posting an article soon on how to replace the internal speaker, however this is not a repair that just anyone can do.
You have to have skills in dissassembly & soldering.

Please read the solution that resolved this problem for someone else. Most likely, you have already tried this. However, the antenna of your Nuvi 660 is the same as the 3xx Nuvi series. I know this because I have worked on them.
If the above procedure does not work for you, the entire antenna assembly will need to be replaced.
The other option is to purchase an external antenna for your Nuvi and plug it into the external antenna port (gold connector) on the Nuvi antenna assembly.

There is a known hardware bug in the Garmin 600 series relating to the detection of the connection of an external antenna. The GPS is supposed to do this automatically and when it detects an external antenna plugged in it switches out the internal antenna. Unfortunately, this circuitry doesn't work correctly in some versions of the unit and sometimes it get's comfused and thinks there is an external antenna connected when there is not. This causes the behavior you describe because, for all practical purposes, there is no antenna connected.
Garmin can fix this and they've been known to fix it even on units that are out of warranty. There is a fix that can be done by someone with the right equipment and know-how which requires disassembling the unit and bypassing the antenna switch. Not to be attempted by anyone not experienced in micro surface mount PCB re-work.
