    I've had a look inside, and theres nothing that looks like reed switch. Is there anyway of posting a picture here? If I could identify it, would it need to be disconnected or bridged? I can do either, just don't know what a smt reed switch would look like.

if that doesn't work, there is a magnet in the antenna and magnetic switch in the base that needs to be looked at inside.

Garmin nuvi 660 battery will not charge from car charger


Make sure the fuse to your DC socket isn't blown. Check the fuse in the tip of the charger. When your Nuvi 660 is plugged into the cradle, you should see a yellow lightning bolt over the battery icon. If you don't see this, then your Nuvi isnt getting voltage from the car charger.

You can also have a bad cradle or charger plug that plugs into the cradle. More info can be found here:

Garmin Nuvi takes a long time to Acquire satellite


No. 98% of the time it took 45-56 seonds for your NUVI 660. Thats the compagny set up time acquisition and it did very well.

Be sur you had your flip antenna parallel to earth surface.
660 has THE BEST SIRF Chipset for acquiring satellite.

I had 2 NUVI 660 since 2 years. It work much better than those new 7xx series who it really took 2-3 minutes to acquire satellite.

Be sure you update your version to the last one.
