Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver
Where did you try this? GPS signals are "line of sight" only and will be blocked by even thin metallic coatings. Some high-end european cars have window coatings that block GPS signals.
If the unit is new, it may take it a long time to get its first fix, It trys to look for the satellites it thinks it should see at whatever location it last was and at whatever time it thinks it is. After it first locks on to a satellite, it will eventually download new ephemeris data and correct itself, but this may take a while.
make sure you are trying this outside where the GPS has a clear view of the sky. You can go to the system settings page and set your location and time and that will help it find satellites quicker than it would if it thinks it is somewhere else at some other time.
If you still can't get satellites, you may have a bad internal antenna or receiver.
If you have already tried what I suggest, contact Garmin for their free technical support.
