    Sometimes the Nuvi 660 automatically switches to FM speakers audio.  You need to switch it back to use the Nuvi's speakers.

If you can hear audio through the headphone jack but not the internal speaker jack, then the speaker is bad.

This is a problem I have seen many times before. I will be posting an article soon on how to replace the internal speaker, however this is not a repair that just anyone can do.

You have to have skills in dissassembly & soldering.

    Also, the speaker is a 1.35" diameter, low profile speaker. The original speaker has a blue & black wire running from the speaker to a 2 position plug, which plugs into the main board. I would salvage the wires from the original speaker to make use of the original plug. I'll be posting a procedure on how to take apart the Nuvi and replace the speaker. Again, this is a procedure for those with dissassembly & soldering skills and units no longer under warranty.

    I measured the resistance of a working Nuvi speaker and its 7.8 ohms (8 ohms). If your measuring a value in the thousands of ohms, then your speaker is bad.

The phone information isn't stored in your Nuvi. Each time it pairs with your phone the call, phonebook and other information is retrieved by the GPS.

To manage your phone activity you have to do it within the cell phone itself. Clear your messages and the next time you pair with the Nuvi you'll notice everything is gone.
