Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

Garmin Nuvi 660 - Razor V3XX

I follow the directions when pairing my phone to the GPS and everything seems go fine when the connect. I am not seeing my contacts refresh on the GPS and my phne locks up and doesnt disco when dropped in timely fashion or at all. The real issue is when I dial out the GPS dials but nothing after that.
I believe this worked one or two times the day I got the phone but not again.
I called Gamin today in an attempt to gain some assitance on this to no avail. The girl kept saying sounds like, it's probably, and I had to delete and repair mine several times. She was no help. I downloaded some software from Garmin but still nothing.

Re: Garmin Nuvi 660 - Razor V3XX

Ok very easy. Your RAZOR is not properly recognize by the GPS. Your GPS unit is ok. It's just a little firmware update. Did you do ?

Try to delete your old connection and try again after the firmware update.

if don't call again GARMIN but ask for Automotive technician 2 shift.

Mentionned your problem with the RAZOR and ask if the last firmware include the update for MOTOROLA.

I had one MOTORALA not a RAZOR and it work fine. it should with MOTOROLA.

Best regards

Nuvi 660 + omnia

Hi, version 3.1 is supposed to help with disconnects. Please see this link:

However, Garmin released 3.4 which will include the changes in 3.1 and also makes the bluetooth compatible with more phones.

You need to go to and download their webupdater and run it with your Nuvi connected to the PC with a USB cable. It will check (via the Internet) if you need a firmware upgrade. The latest firmware version for a Nuvi 660 is v4.7. There is a second menu after the main firmware option that allows you to select additional software. Select yes and check the bluetooth 3.4 box and the Chipset "G" box if it's shown.. The Chipset "G" is the upgrade for the receiver in the flip-up antenna. Let it download. When finished, select to safely remove the Nuvi. You can now unplug the USB cable. Your Nuvi will reboot and load in the new changes. Whatever you do, don't turn your nuvi off! Let it go and update. You will see it say "Loader", then "Loading Software" and you'll see a task bar that says "Updating Bluetooth Software" and "Updating GPS Software" (if required). Once you get to the main menu and there are no more texts coming up on the screen. Press the power button and turn your unit off and then back on again. Check the GPS and Bluetooth firmware versions in your Nuvi. It should be 3.0 for the GPS and 3.4 for the Bluetooth. Check the firmware version if you selected v4.7. You will have to re-pair your phone with your Nuvi as the update erases any previous set-up. Let me know how it went for you. If you have trouble with this, let me know. I can do it for you. I have done it many times. Please rate my solution if you found it helpful.

The phone information isn't stored in your Nuvi. Each time it pairs with your phone the call, phonebook and other information is retrieved by the GPS.

To manage your phone activity you have to do it within the cell phone itself. Clear your messages and the next time you pair with the Nuvi you'll notice everything is gone.

Stop transfering voice from Sony Ericson P910i and Garmin Nuvi 660

Can you update the firmware on your unit
my k800i sony phone had a problem synchronising and would freeze, then one day the nuvi 660 updated the firmware by itself and has been fine since, only problem being the volume, a bit low when trying to contest with large diesel engine, onboard speaker keen to distort over 80% volume

When you connect your Garmin to your PC (using the USB lead)you should see the Garmin as a removable drive. Just use the file manager (Windows Explorer) to transfer the mp3 files from your pc to your Garmin MP3 directory.

My Garmin 680 bluetooth stopped working w/ my LG Vx8600

I have found the only thing that works thus far is to click on the red phone in progress icon then go to "call options" then click transfer audio to phone, then transfer audio to nuvi. Sometimes I have to do this twice. but it works.
