Well..opening it takes a special tool set. And, if it goes badly, then it's kaput..not under warranty by chance, is it?

How long does it take to charge a new garmin660?

If the battery is in good condition, just a couple hours. Plug the charger into the unit and you should see a yellow lightning bolt over the battery status indicator. 4 green bars means the battery is charged. Anything less and it is not.

To leave the unit in charge, press the on/off power button until the screen says battery charging. You can check the charging status by just touching the screen. If it says battery charge complete, then you are done.

LCD cracked & need to be changed I live in La


In the cse of your unit it is much more cost effective to replace it than to fix the screen. A new one would run around 110$ where the repair would cost you 120$. So i would recommend upgrading to a newer unit.

Hope this helps!

Cracked Screen

yes it can be fixed and its neither expensive or complicated and the Garmin 265 is definitely worth fixing especialy if its a 265w.

do not recycle your gps like was previously can ether buy the part or have it repaired HERE

there are two totally different parts to the screen, one is the lcd part (thats what shows you the images on the screen)..the other is the digitizer (thats what allows you navigate your screen and menu) it probably only needs the digitizer and not the lcd unless the screen is blank

the fellow in the link actually works on these everyday, same as i do and we do not have to guess at whats wrong with it or whether its worth fixing or not ...thanks to some dubious experts here on fixya i can not link you to me directly or id fix it for you for free, excluding parts and shipping.

good luck

Screen appears to be cracked but glass on the outside not broken.


If the outside panel is intact, then the crack may be on the LCD panel, located beneath the protective glass panel.

If the Sat Nav is less than one year old, then the replacement will be done free of charge.

Contact TomTom at the number listed on manual to arrange repair.

My child locked my garmin660

there are only three things you can do.
  1. return to the secure location where the password was set and it will unlock
  2. provide proof of purchase and return it to garmin to unlock it.
  3. punish the child untill they tell you the code.
the last was was meant to be funny but hey, you never know what theyll do if you threaten to take away their XBOX 360 ;)

good luck..bill

SONY NV-U94T touch screen cracked

I have the same problem. I called Sony Support and a new Touchscreen digitizer (the touch-sensitive glass pane that sits on top of the LCD screen) costs about $76. That's just for the part. Haven't been able to find another solution. I took the liberty of taking my unit apart and taking out the shattered screen, now all I need is a replacement, but Sony's is too expensive for me. Maybe it will work for you though
