Spell county? Never seen a county option on a GPS. Usually its zip or city, street, street number.

Hello how can I update my Carmin nuvi 660 and download the map of new zealand ? thank you


Details of how to update your garmin satnav are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

To get a new map of NZ you need to have your satnav registered. Details of how to do so are at the above link also. When you're registered go to www.garmin.com
  • Click on the myGarmin tab
  • Log in using your username and password
  • Click on the myMaps tab
There you'll see the map installed on your satnav. On the left hand side of the screen you'll see in blue writing a link saying "Shop for new maps" and then on "View additional maps for this product"

Scroll down as far as the map of NZ and select it. Follow the prompts.
If the map you already have on your satnav is not NZ and you want to save that too it's unlikely that both will fit on your satnav. If this is the case follow the instructions, at the above link, under the heading If the map is too large to install on your satnav for downloading to your computer and installing from your computer to your memory card rather than the satnav. Be advised maps installed on memory cards will not always work on garmin nuvi satnavs particularly if the memory card is larger than 2 Gb. Please read the article at the link above before buying.

We have a Garmin Nuvi GPS which was purchased just over a year ago. It was working fine but all of a sudden was not. The message coming up is Cannot unlock maps? What do we need to do to solve this...


Your unlock code has become corrupted or the map has been deleted from the Nuvi's drive.

Garmin nuvi 1300 Query


Usually they come preloaded with some maps and you purchase additional ones. Check the manual that came with it or the box and that should tell you which ones it has. Generally speaking a basic unit bought in the UK will come with UK & Ireland preloaded, more expensive unit may have UK, Ireland & Europe and the most expensive may have all three plus USA. It's unlikely you will have 'lost' your USA map. The unit should have a 'drop down' menu which allows you to choose which map to load. Hope this helps!

I need to install map update 2009 data card


If the map is on a SD card, just plug it into the SD slot on the side of your Nuvi with the power OFF. Then turn on your Nuvi and at the main menu, press the wrench symbol, then the map icon and then "map info". Uncheck your old 2008 map and check your 2009 map and you should be ready to go.

Nuvi 660 -- Loading Supplemental Maps


The best price I could find in the US for the
Euope maps was about $230 -on the internet - normal retail is $299. You have to buy and use it off the SD card, so depending on how long your trip is it might be more practical renting one, unless you want to try selling the SD card after you return.

Map fro Garmin


As far as I know you can only buy maps from Garmin, or a Garmin retailer.  The 660 should have all the maps for North America already loaded in it.

You can purchase Points of Interest (POI) databases from a variety of sources.  Just google POI.  These are not maps but they are adresses for points of interest such as restaurants, special services, and even speed trap cameras.
