Try restting the unit first by pressing the reset button under the antenna for at least 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, most likely there is some physical damage to the board where a component has been knocked loose or has broken a solder joint. Dropping a unit can also damage the LCD display too. As far as expense, it may be better to think about getting a new one. There may be intermittent connections that may show up later. Something you dont want happening while on a trip.

Garmin Nuvi 660 shut itself off and will not turn back on


Hi Sherry,

The unit should not get warm, unless the battery was fully discharged or maybe shorted out. Most likely a part has failed on the main board.

Please see this link about a Dead Nuvi:

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

are charged custom fees depending on how much
you paid for it probably not worth it, if you paid for
it with your gold mc card you are covered for damages good luck
