    I am in the same boat, but mine has been doing this since summer. I purchased it last November. Garmin was to have emailed the cure, but I have not received the email since 2 weeks ago. They did tell me to press the lower right corner, but nothing happened

In case it is a software problem try this and see if it will fix it....Try this and see if it fixes your problem...follow these steps.
1. Power off the unit.
2. HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display. KEEP HOLDING the power button down and the display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode message disappears. This seems to take a long time (60 seconds at least).
3. Once the pre boot mode message disappears release the power button and your device will perform some activites to try recover from the problem.

That simply shows that the power adapter/cord is bad. To confirm it, all you need to do is to borrow another charger then plug your garmin nuvi on it to see if it charges, if it charges, then it means what you have to replace is your charger. The former battery is not bad since it can power on and off the gps.
Solution, Get a new charger for your garmin nuvi 660 gps receiver. Am very well convinced that,replacing the charger will do the job.
Hope this piece of information helped.

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.

Garmin nuvi won't turn on


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
