Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Hello pretty please, if you could help rescue one problem. I have a navigation nuvi 660 Yesterday I got through the web updater updates loaded. Then I start navigation, and now I can not find more satellites. I noticed that during boot the screen displays the ongoing GPS modernization, below is a line that is not filled and remains at 0% and goes. I also noticed that if I connect the device again with the web updater, we always offer updated GPS Chipset Type G. Still ticking this update to download, own transfer (initialization) in the normal way to 100%, we then show that the update was successful and to click Finish to exit. Please if you could help me to solve this problem and can fix the heart of the peaceful journey of the leave. Greetings Thomas Merc

This is referred to as the "Zombie Mode". It happens because the main board in the GPS can not communicate with the flip GPS receiver board to poll for its firmware version, so its trying to reflash it but it can't.

My nuvi 660 turns on but displays "loading maps"


Hello,

The problem is that the nuvi 660 gps receiver is jammed and needs to be reformatted.
What you have to do is to disconnect the gps, and connect it to a computer, then format it.

After formatting it, you download the self extracting archive files for your nuvi on to your hard drive, then connect your nuvi to a free USB port on your PC interface cable and allow your nuvi to initialize and enter USB mode, Unzip the files by running the downloaded executable files, then follow the instruction provided by the launched update application on your PC.

Then install it back in your car and turn it on, it will work once again.

Take care and good luck
i hope this helps?

Use the Web-updater at Garmin, to update it too,
Jack it to a PC and run the update,
If still playing up, Use the Firmware update at Garmin for it,
