Audiobooks on a Garmin Nuvi 650 GPS

How do I load an mp3 audio book into my Garmin Nuvi 650? I purchased the audiobook from iTunes, put it onto an SD card, inserted the SD card into my Garmin unit, but can't find the audiobook on the Garmin menus, nor can I find the SD card via the Garmin menus?

I just read on the Garmin website that only regular MP3 files will work -- not books or music purchased through iTunes.

I have an AA file that I downloaded from audible.com, it's a book. When I try to sync it to the Sony Walkman from Windows Media Play, I get an error. The error says "Windows Media Player cannot sync...


The "AA" file type is not supported in the NWZ MP3 players. However, you are still able to place audiobooks onto your player if you convert the file to one of the supported file audio formats: MP3. WMA, AAC-LC, and PCM. Remember that there are several iterations of MP3, such as variable bit rate and frequency range and the player does not play some of them.

What I do is that I pull the file into Audacity and convert it there. Another option is that if you can burn the audiobook onto a CD, you can then rip to WMP and then sync it to your player. That is how I get my language audiobooks onto my player. The last option, which I have never tried, is to get it into ITunes, then sync it to your player that way. ITunes will automatically convert the file before syncing it onto the player.

Hope that helps.

Click "gear" icon next to the audiobook file name, then you are allowed to choose output format as MP3, M4A, AAC, WAV, WMA, FLAC. Of course, MP3 format is the best choice for Amazon Kindle Fire.

Audio book download


The RCA Opal supports Audible audiobook downloads almost exclusively. You can transfer audiobooks that are in mp3 or wma format, but they will not play like regular audiobooks - they will play as one continuous file. I would use Windows Media Player to transfer the audiobooks to the player, but you can drag and drop using Windows Explorer also.

You need to tag the .mp3 so it has a genre of "Audiobook". Google "mp3 tagger" and you'll find utils to do this for you.

Audiobook to ipod


That is the problem. iTunes will only allow you to put audiobooks in that section if they were bought from the iTunes store. It's very annoying, but i suggest just making a playlist to hold all the files. iTunes doesn't let you set the type as "Audiobook" for files.

How to activate my nuvi 660 using my mac and itunes or audible.com


I had the same problem and was able to resolve it using the procedure (listed below) from Audible technical support.  It's wordy, but the long and short of it is that you need to activate the Nuvi on a PC machine, then you can use it on the Mac.  To transfer files, open iTunes audiobook window, then drag your books of choice from that window to the Nuvi icon on the desktop.  I had no problems using this procedure.

Thank you for contacting Audible.com. On its behalf, I would like to apologize for any inconvenience and I am most committed to satisfying and resolving your inquiry to the fullest of my abilities.

As per your email I understand that you wish to use your Garmin GPS with Audible on your Mac.

Unfortunately, the Garmin is not supported on a Mac with Audible audiobooks unless it is first activated on a Windows PC. If you have access to a Windows PC please follow the requested steps below to activate it on a PC first. Once successfully activated you will be able to use your Mac to transfer your audiobooks onto it.

If you have access to a Windows PC to activate your Garmin GPS through the Audible Manager software please do the following to get started.

Make sure Audible Manager is installed in your PC, otherwise please go to: Audible Software page ( www.audible.com/software ) and download the version for Download for Windows 2000, XP, or Vista. Select Run or Save. During this installation process, a message: "If you already own an Audible Ready mobile device, please select it from the choices below", will prompt, please select Garmin GPS Devices from the list.

If Audible Manager is already installed on your PC: Launch Audible Manager, click on Devices > Add new device. You will be asked to connect to the Internet. Click Yes to connect. From the list of devices, select the Garmin GPS Devices, and click ok.

Once installed successfully now please follow the requested steps to activate your Garmin Nuvi using the Audible Manager software. 

Ensure that the device is connected to the PC and Internal Memory is selected to activate the Main Memory of your GPS. Please note you may transfer your audiobooks onto the SD card as well if you have one. 

Right-click the Garmin plugin in the bottom left corner of Audible Manager ( below Mobile Devices ) and choose activate. 

After entering your username and password, click ok. 

Once your Garmin has been successfully activated using a Windows PC you may now use your Mac to transfer your Audible audiobooks to your Gramin. 

Before you can transfer your audiobooks on to your Garmin device please follow the requested steps below to download your audiobooks.

Please log into your Audible Account, Click on My Library on the top of the page next to Home, Once you are in your online library towards your right hand side, you will find a tab called "Download It". This will start your download action from our server to your computer. 

This will download the selection onto your desktop and open iTunes. If the file downloads to your desktop, double click or drag the file into the iTunes library. 

Connect your Garmin device to computer. 

Drag the book from iTunes onto the Garmin device.

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,

How do I load an mp3 (audio book) into my Garmin?


If your audio book is in mp3 format you simply connect the USB cable to your unit and then drag and drop the mp3 files into the mp3 folder on the Nuvi650 device. If the audio books are in Audible format (.aa) then drag and drop them the same way into the Audible folder. Disconnect your unit from the computer and look for your audio book in the appropriate folder (mp3 or Audible) ... and no, mp3 Audiobooks and Audible Audiobooks are not the same format.
