Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver
My nuvi 610/660 won't turn on unless plugged in. When it's plugged in it only goes as far as showing the sign that reads "Garmin Nuvi".
Folks, the garmins have an on-board battery that needs to be powered up (at least occasionally) via the usb port - like from your computer. just using the dc car power cord does nothing for this battery. i've had this exact same problem on both my 760 and 780 nuvi units. fixed it using the usb charge. seems to run down differently for all the various nuvi models. my regular charge will hold for 7 hours on my old 660, my 760 and 780 work about 5 hours. my 'power up' failed on the 660 after 10 months with no internal battery charge, but the 7xx models only took about 5-6 months to 'fail.' hope this helps. jack b :-) in midland, tx usa

Sounds like the switch is broken, a common problem with Nuvi's. Here's a website that offers a repair:

Well , do you delete or add something in your NUVI before that occured.
Need more information.
Is that a new problem ?
What is the lassfrimware update ?

Same issue. You can't update the software because the computer will not recognize the unit. Nothing was added and did nothing other than try to turn it on. Now won't advance past the GARMIN startup screen. POS. GARMIN sux!!!
