Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Low Battery Just got the Garmin nuvi 200W series for Christmas. I used it for a total of approx. an hour when I started getting a low battery signal. Now when I try to turn it on it shows the name Garmin, searching for maps and then shuts off.

    Found the problem.

    The fuse for my cigarette lighter was blown. I put a new fuse in and all is working fine.

My Garmin nuvi 200W has had a battery recall and replaced by Garmin. It powers up OK and locates OK but hangs after approx 0.5-1 hours. I cannotr even turn it off without pressing reset. I have updated the...


Send it back to Garmin. The fault may be coincidental, but unless you fancy buying a replacement model it's worth seeing what Garmin have to say. It should only have been a straightforward battery swap, but if the technician forgot to wear an earthing strap it's entirely possible that a component suffered static discharge damage.

I've been holding back from sending my nuvi 770 in as the battery seems fine and I've often had problems with shoddy recall work on digital cameras and similar devices in the past.

HOW DO I INSTALL A BATTERY IN MY GARMIN NUVI 660


Replacing the nuvi 660's battery is actually not all that hard as this video demonstrates:
utube.png You-Tube video "S2KEu_if7wA" placeholder (do not delete) utube.png
The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to do this yourself if you'd like. See: http://www.newpower99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=GARMIN+NUVI+660&Show=ExtInfo I swapped the battery of a friend's dying GPS using the aforementioned kit and all went well. His nuvi 680 is back up and running smoothly.
