Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

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 problem as we are unable to use the GPS and it is very frustrating. Regards, Leanne Dalglish

Garmin Nuvi 610 not Acquiring satelites. it was working fine and while driving suddenly said something about poor reception, now nothing


Hello,

Its sounds like your GPS's internal receiver is broken, you may be able to fix this with a firmware update but it is likely you will have to purchase an external antenna for your GPS to be functional.

Hope this helps!

Getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted. Don't skip the hard reset step (or the backup step!)

I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Was working fine and suddenly deided to lose maps. message on screen says "no detailed maps found that support routing. The nuvi cannot be used without them." What happened and how do I GET THEM BACK. ...


Call up Garmin and have them walk you threw a trouble shooting procedure. It sounds like your unit has erased itself by no fault of yours. Garmin will replace it once you get ahold of them. There is not anything that we can do without thier support.

You need to call garmin to have them help you unlock your unit. It sometimes requires the 25 digit unlock code which they have on hand. 1-800-800-1020 I believe.

How old is the gps, if you answer is more than 2 years could mean you have a bad antenna, i would look into purchasing the extended antenna from the manufacturer if its not too expensive to test that theory.
