Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

2 Nuvi 660 problems

I, every few times, get the phone disconnect problem. Tried the mentioned fix's and still get the problem.

The second problem is that it holds onto street names after I have passed the intersection. Seems to be a couple of seconds late most of the time.

How i can reset an a lowrance endura sierra?


Hello there:
here is what you can try to do is first unplug any power going to the unit and remove the battery these units have a internal reset device that will reset it'self after a given amount of time which is about 1 hour.
during this time press in on the power button for 2 minutes and if it has a reset button it press in on this for 2 min leave the battery and the power out of the unit for the rest of the remaining time i had mentioned.
now plug in the power cord back in it and start the unit now if it works ok simply turn off and replace the battery and you are now done ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

My garmin wont turn on iv tried charging in car, computer, changing fuse, it just wont turn on


plug it in to the computer for a few hours, then hold the power switch to the on position for up to 15 seconds.

if that fails, disconnect it from the power source, then press and hold the lower right corner of the screen, while holding the lower right corner, switch the power to the on position. once you see the message "do you really want to delete your data" select yes, then follow the on screen instructions

I turn it on, it beeps and turns off again !


Return it for replacement/repair rather than fiddle with it. It is a warranty claim

DO NOT plug the unit into DC car power and start engine it damages the power board and the SIIRF chip
and dont mention you started the car with it plugged in

My Tom Tom One takes a long time to pick up a GPS signal (30 to 45 minutes)


You might want to try updating your TomTom through TomTom Home. It loads something called "QuickFix" onto the TomTom, which I guess tells the TomTom where GPS satellites are going to be. I get a fix in about 5-15 seconds if I keep this updated, otherwise it takes a few minutes.

It won't turn on


I just had the exact problem as you did. On the TomTom website mentions that you can press the Turn-on button for 15 seconds to reset it. I tried that and it worked. Maybe it'll work for you too.

I've had the same problem. before replacing the antenna, try to reset the antenna by removing power to the Raystar 120. Disconnect power by either turning off all batteries or disconnecting the red wire from the antenna at the point where it enters the junction box for the chartplotter. This action effectively removes all memory from the antenna and resets it to factory settings. There is a lithianium battery in GPS antenna that holds memory data in the antenna. Disconnecting the power to the antenna for a few seconds clears the memory.

This is exactly what I did and when I turned the chartplotter back on, my Raystar 120 immediately began working again.

Fine Digital FineDrive 400 GPS Receiver Problem


The company went bankrupt. I get a "unable to read map data error". Called for over a month, sent email after email. Finally contacted a company that fixes Finedrives and they told me the company (Fine Digital) is out of business and will not warranty the unit...ten months old at the time. The company who fixes these machines said that it would be cheaper to buy a new(different company) gps system compared to having them fix the Finedrive 400.
