    When traveling at speeds above 60 mph especially on country roads, most of the intersecting crossroads disappear. when the speeds are reduced they show back up. Is this normal for the Garmin 660 zumo

Is your screen showing that you are on a road? Could be that the maps are out of date or that you are in an area that is new and that there is no data at this time. Try driving around and see if the GPS tracks correctly.

Garmin map supplier is Navteq. Garmin do not make their own maps.

Have you updated the software since you purchased the unit? If not, go to Garmin's site, download WebUpdater and check to see if there is an update to the unit's software. If so, download this and see if it helps. If not, try downloading the same version of the software again. This might help also.

Do a hard reset on your GPS. Download and install Garmin Express from Garmin. Plug your GPS into your computer. The software will identify your GPS and allow you to download new maps to it.

Try connecting it to your computer via a USB cable. Then log on to Garmin's webiste and download a map update. Then you can put the map update on your GPS to replace the ones you lost. All Garmin customers get one free map update. After than it's about $40-$60 dollars for an update.

The Garmin GPS' are designed to read major roads and highways this way, as this is how they are marked as you drive on them. There is no way to change this.

Verify that you have the correct basemap for the country that you are in. There are two maps inside a new Garmin. The basemap which shows all the major highways and mapsource which shows all the street. If you don't have the correct basemap try changing 'Navigation' Advoidance to avoid highways and Toll Roads.
