Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

Garmin nuvi 650

I purchased a 650 nivi, now I need to learn how to install music that will play on this unit. I read somewhere that it must be formatted, and also fat 32, or something like that?
I am not a techno geek but can do a lot of basic stuff if given the correct info.

Thanks
PS: it is the 650 not the 660

  • abouya Feb 22, 2008

    i am trying to load mp3 files onto my nuvi 760 through my Mac.
    I cannot find the 'mounted volumes' that the manual refers to.
    I called customer support and they said to create my own new MP3 folder and try that. Didn't work. Help? Please? I bought this unit specifically for that feature.

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.

Disassembly nuvi


The clips are part of the connector and can not be purchased separately, however it is possible to remove a clip from another connector and install it on the connector with the missing clip. It takes a steady hand and there is a trick to get it on. We've done it many times in our repairs for our customers.

Garmin nivi 200 won,t turn on


The mini-USB jack needs to be either resoldered or replaced. When the jack is loose, you will not be able to charge the internal battery. The jack becomes loose from overuse. The jack needs more mechanical support to the pronted circuit board. I have fixed this problem many times.

How to put music on my tom tom go 730 Can't figure out how to put music on my Garmin Nuvi GPS 650


It should work the way other Garmin units work. Plug the unit into the computer via the USB cable. The computer should recognize the unit as a mass storage device. Click on the Garmin (it should be shown under your storage devices) and you should see a folder marked MP3. Drag and drop the music files you want into this folder, then disconnect the unit (safely, of course). That should do it.

Garmin nuvi 650 unlocking


If you are the legitimate owner, you can send your unit back to Garmin to be unlocked. Be prepared to provide rock-solid proof of ownership because Garmin has a program that prevents stolen units from ever working again. It's one of the reasons that I purchased it. As word gets out that you cannot unlock a stolen unit, thieves will be deterred from stealing them in the first place. And if you try to open the unit to see if there is any easy jumper or something, you will permanently destroy it.

Garmin Nuvi 650 660 680 6XX SD Card PNY 4GB SDHC Works


just got my A-Data 8GB card today and proceeded to load it up with 7.2GB of MP3s (nearly full capacity).

I timed with my wrist watch the bootup times and there was no difference in the boot times whether the SD card loaded up with MP3's was inserted in the unit or not. What did change is that even one minute after booting up the songs wouldn't show up in the "MP3 Player" window, it just had a blanked out browse button and a generic icon like it has when no music is loaded.

It took a full 90 seconds or so for the MP3 player to actually become responsive and show my selections, but after that it was working normally (from what I can tell).

Best Regards,
