Install maps from CD after maintenance mode on Nuvi 660


Hi if it is saying problem with removalbe drive G this will mean their is either problem with the lead.
If this is not the case then it is either your usb port or the unit itself you might find that the prot works fine but the computer is not recognising the sat nav.
have you installed this disk that came with the satnav on your comp this might be the problem try opening this programme before you plug satnav in.
The only other thing you could try is plugging it back in do you leave the satnav off whilst it is plugged into your comp.
When it is plugged in try using the tool search for new hardware run this file when it has finished look on the list and the satnav should be in this list.
If it is then you will need the disk that cam with the satnav select satnav from the list then select have disk put the disk in and try reinstalling the software that came with the satnav.
Are you sure that the port is working properly that you are trying to use.
Let me know how you get on ok

Download update problem


Are you trying to update a Nuvi that already has European maps installed or are you trying to install European maps into a Nuvi that does not already have them?

If it's a map update, are you getting the error when you download the update to pc, or when you are trying to install the update to the Nuvi?

When I install US map updates into a streetpilot or Nuvi, it typically ends with a download error but the maps do in fact get updated and the new software versions are shown in the setup menus.

The Garmin rep I spoke with says that is normal.

If you are in the United States, I can get you maps, updates, and even install them for you if you wish.

Feel free to shoot me a message if you're interested.

I am updating my nuvi 200 with map update 2009 of city navigator north america nt. Canada is not loading to my gps through my computer. Looking for a solution.


when updating from the city nav update disc, it will only update the maps currently on the unit. Since Canada isnt included, it will not add it on. What you need is the Pre-programed City navigator chip for Canada. Normally retails around $59.99

Garmin Map update 2008


you will need to install the usb driver which should be located on the 2008 disk. When you attach the gps to your computer it should ask where the usb driver is located. If your dvd drive is (D) click browse and go the disk and find usb driver folder. I have purchased the new 2008 disk and had problems with it freezing on loader loading. I then browsed the disk and downloaded and then was able to get to the maps. I did not install it due to it asking what map I want to download. I wanted the whole thing so needless to say I am taking it back to walmart. I hope this helps.
