What happens when you replace the fuse, plug in the charger without plugging the charger into the 660? Does it blow then? If not, the 660 is damaged internally and causing the fuse to blow. If it still blows, then there is a problem in the charger.

I have garmin nuvi760 gps when ever I hook it up in my car fuse in car charger cable blown up, I changed the fuse several time ,it does the same thing,it takes 3amp 250V fuse.I realy need help.


You need to determine if it is a charger problem or a problem in the Nuvi.

If you have the AC wall charger, plug that into your Nuvi. If the unit boots normally, then you can discount that there is a problem with the Nuvi. Does the Nuvi power up on its own internal battery with the charger disconnected? When you change the fuse and it blows, is the charger plugged into the Nuvi?

Try changing the fuse and powering up the charger without it being plugged into the Nuvi. If the fuse still blows, then the fault is with the charger. Please also be aware that the charger converts +12VDC from the car battery to +5VDC to power the Nuvi. Some chargers can fail and provide +12VDC directly to the Nuvi. This can damage the Nuvi and will certainly blow the fuse.

Will a garmin gtm 20 charger work with a garmin nuvi 660 gps


Yes! The GTM-20 is a charger with a built-in traffic receiver. The charger plugs into the cradle for the Nuvi 660 and then the Nuvi 660 snaps into the cradle.

However to receive traffic with the GTM-20, you will need to purchase a subscription, either yearly or lifetime. The traffic receiver receives traffic information from FM radio broadcast stations, which broadcast traffic data.

I've borrowed a friend's Garmin for a trip and when I use the car charger, it doesn't display anything. Once I disconnect, it becomes visible again. I'm going on a long trip and worry. ...


Assuming there is power at the cigarette lighter jack - turn the Nuvi off - then connect the charger. It should display charging battery or charging complete.
If nothing - does it charge with the wall charger? If so check the fuse in the car charger - it's usually in the tip of the charger which can be turned to get the fuse out.

Garmin nuvi 660 battery will not charge from car charger


Make sure the fuse to your DC socket isn't blown. Check the fuse in the tip of the charger. When your Nuvi 660 is plugged into the cradle, you should see a yellow lightning bolt over the battery icon. If you don't see this, then your Nuvi isnt getting voltage from the car charger.

You can also have a bad cradle or charger plug that plugs into the cradle. More info can be found here:

660 nuvi charges fine with AC charger, but not with 12v car charg


The real question is this:

1. When you plug the Nuvi onto the cradle, do you see a yellow lightning bolt appear over the battery icon at the main menu?

Compare it with the AC charger. If you don't see the lightning bolt, then you either have (2) problems:

1. There is a problem with the car charger not feeding power to the Nuvi.
2. There is a problem with the rear cradle socket on the Nuvi.

I have fixed both problems before. More info can be found here:

Hi,

Reset button behind the Antenna, press this in for a few seconds.
Use the Web-updater at Garmin, to update it too,
Jack it to a PC and run the update,
If still playing up, Use the Firmware update at Garmin for it,
(( google Garmin 660 software updates ))
Should be good then

Garmin Nuvi 660 shutting off


It sounds like your battery is defective. They can be replaced. The Motorola phone cable is not wired exactly like the Garmin, and your Nuvi thinks it's connected to a PC. Radio Shack carries a charger for the Nuvi. I have one myself.

Let me know if you need additional help with your battery problem.
