SOURCE: audio gone from my gps garmin nuvi 660

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.

Best wishes,

SOURCE: How do I see the

you should see it now
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.

SOURCE: cracked screen

The only way to repair it is to send it to Garmin for service. They recently told me the flat rate to repair my streetpilot 550c was $250. (!)

Where does the touchscreen attach to the main body on a Garmin 660?


The touchscreen is a 4 conductor flat flex cable that connects to the motherboard by sliding into the latching connector on the board.

The loose red wire that you have is most likely one lead of the microphone that is used for bluetooth.

With is loose, bluetooth audio will no longer work with your phone.

Just changed battery in nuvi 660 and now I have a very poor display. Like a computer screen with no video driver. Every thing was put back exactly as taken apart. Could it be the new battery?


No, one of the LCD flex cables is not fully inserted into its connector. unlatch the lock down flaps and reinsert the flex cables back in and lock down the flaps. Most likely this is a problem with the larger flex cable. If the screen lights, the smaller flex cable is OK. Its located to the right of the larger one in the center. The flex on the left is for the touchscreen.

Just replaced the battery in my Nuvi 660, and now can only get a blank white screen.


Your LCD flex cable (largest one) is not seated correctly in the board connector. What you are seeing is just the backlight lit. Hopefully you didn't damage the LCD locking flap.

With the power off, you need to lift the locking flap up re-insert the LCD flex cable and then lock the flap down.

The latch is fragile, so be careful not to snap it.

How do i get a new ribbon that runs from the main board to the viewing screen of the garmin nuvi 660


Sounds like you took your unit apart. Sorry, you have to replace the entire LCD display. The flex cables are not replaceable. Hopefully you didn't damaged the LCD connector or the unit is now toast.

Changed the battery with an aftermarket one and unit wont work


Either the touchscreen has failed or you have accidentally disconnected the touchscreen flex cable. Many people break the flex connectors trying to change a battery. The LCD does not need to be disconnected in order to change a battery.

Replacement antenna and flat cable for Nuvi 370


The flat antenna flex cable is attached to the main PCB and receiver board by connectors. The top of each connector has a flap, which you pry up with a very small screw driver. This allows you to slide the cable out. To put it back in, you slide the cable into the connector and push the flap down on the connector to lock it in place. The cable will not go back in unless you lift the flap. Trying to insert it into the connector without lifting the flat probably caused the cable to flex and crack.

You're best bet is to buy an AS-IS unit on eBay that is dead or has a defective LCD screen and use it for parts to fix yours. Stay away from any units that claim to have antenna problem. I know you can buy replacement screens for the Nuvi on eBay but I haven't seen replacement flex cables.

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

Good Luck!
