Garmin 660 locked up / frozen

I was just listening to an audibook I loaded onto my 660 and the nuvi locked up suddenly and now is frozen with the screen on. the touch screen does not work and the power button has no impact. any advice? also, does resetting the nuvi erase anything saved on the unit (ie maps, audio books, favorite lists, etc.)? Thanks!

Resetting the device merely resets the power connection, on some devices there is a reset to manufacturer defaults on settings, but not your stored data. Working with GPS's 40 hours a week I constantly have to use the reset button when they lock up. Just press it in for a few seconds then if it doesn't power back up just hit the power button and everything should be fine.

Will my garmin play music?


Yes, if it has a media player. The 660 will. It will play MP3's but you have to load the MP3's onto the GPS using a USB cable between the GPS and your PC.

Garmin Nuvi 660 touch screen freezes up. Soft


I sat on the phone for 30 minutes waiting for Garmin support when my Nuvi suddenly had no touch screen response. They had me delete a file on the device (with it hooked to my computer) then reboot and it went thru a touch screen alignment and it worked.

Sadly, it has frozen again and I don't recall the file (it had been a GCD file in all caps, that is all I know and I don't see a file in all caps any more). I will be calling support tomorrow.

My take is that it *is* a firmware thing *and* there is some way to reset the firmware.

Cant enter pin or screen is frozen


Look near the SN # and press the reset button.

or

with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.

I did connect it to the computer via my USB cord - a Garmin menu came up and after opening a couple of the choices the Garmin was workable again. I don't really know why. But all is good here.
