Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver
I was able to use a PNY 4GB SDHC4G4-FS Class 4 card with my Nuvi 650. I picked it up at Best Buy for $35US on sale.
It should work with the 660 and other 6XX series, I'll check with my brother's 680. My 650 has firmware version 4.2.
Even though the PNY package says it's limited to High Capacity devices, it works just fine.
When your Nuvi is connected to the computer, the SD card should show up as an extra drive. You can load it up with MP3s, JPGs, and audio books, or load it up with using a card reader.
Once you turn on the Nuvi with the SD card installed, it treats the SD card memory as part of the main unit memory, it's all contiguous and seamless. You won't see any icons or anything to tell you are accessing the SD card.
Has anyone tried higher capacity cards?
Wow! I just went out and bought a PNY SDHC 4gb memory card. Loaded it into my NUVI 680 and hooked it to laptop with USB cable. Saw the 4mb G drive right away. Havent synced music to it yet but cant see any problem. Thank you.

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).
