Re: Nuvi 660 not working

1-Check if you have 500 waypoints, Thats the maximum.

Be sure you delete the recents search via the menu. the recent use when you did a search for a place or adress, just delete.

2- could you confirm both of you if you did not add any other maps into the units ?

3- How many MP3 you have into the GARMIN files ?

Need this to answer your question properly ?

It should not happen if you did not overload the unit 660.

Everything has a maximum who is published by the manufacturer.

Best regards

How do I delete an address from recently found?

On a Nuvi, you can not delete just one entry in the recently found list. You have to delete the entire list.

660 nuvi charges fine with AC charger, but not with 12v car charg

The real question is this:

1. When you plug the Nuvi onto the cradle, do you see a yellow lightning bolt appear over the battery icon at the main menu?

Compare it with the AC charger. If you don't see the lightning bolt, then you either have (2) problems:

1. There is a problem with the car charger not feeding power to the Nuvi.
2. There is a problem with the rear cradle socket on the Nuvi.

I have fixed both problems before. More info can be found here:
