Recycle the power by taking the battery out and leave it turned off for 10 mins and then connect the batteries and it should work

The unit should still operate even though the map is old. If you press the OK button and nothing happens, most likely the touchscreen is bad and needs to be replaced. An old map should not stop you from using the device.

Trying to input address and cannot type in street, gets three letters and goes to street name and won't let me continue to type actual name karenwallin@aol.com


Thank you for your question.

Go to the Garmon.com website. Check for an "update for your Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver. Download the update which may take a while. It's best to start downloading and go do something else for a while until the download is complete.

If this doesn't work, contact support at Garmin.

Go to the Garmin website now (click here)


If your unit was around $100 or so, it's easier to just buy a new one then to send yours in for service.

I found a discounted unit online:

Discounted Garmin GPS


Hope this helps you solve your GPS problem.

My 660 is not receiving a satellite signal. Software has been updated and unit has been completely reset. Garmin has offered to replace with lower end unit. Any hope for the 660?


Hello,

If you have preformed all the above then the GPS receiver in your unit is probably dead and you should take the replacement from garmin as the 660 is an older unit and probably out of warranty.

Garmin Nuvi 660 cannot acquire satellites


Hi I had this problem and its an antenna fault, give garmin a call and see if yours is still under warranty, if it is they will tell you to take it back to the retailor who will call garmin for a RA Number and they will replace it there and then. If your warranty has run out then call garmin to ask about repairs
Best Of Luck

Password


All you need to do is ask him where he was when he entered the password. Go to that location and power up the unit. It won't ask you for the password when you are at the location that it was entered. If you don't know the location, you will need to send the unit back to Garmon to be reset.

Good luck!
