It's predictive text, if you have spelt the name properly it should be in the suggested street names. If it's not then it's not on the unit.

I type the correct teacher username in but it wont let me


I don't think the system is reading your input. You need to put in your real name, then your child's real name, then your child's teacher's real name. The username alone won't work.


If this doesn't work, try counting backwards on your fingers five times, bang your head three times then repeat very quickly three times, "OWAH TEGU SIAM." All should be clear then.

I want to write something on my WALL but i want to attach my friend name on it, how can i do it ?


Type the "at" symbol and then start typing their name; you should get a little pop up after you've typed a few letters of their name. Click on their name to tag them.

Here's an example. Let's say you have a friend named "John Jenkins" who you want to included in a wall post. You can type something like this:

Hey @John

and then a pop up should appear where you can click on their name. The "@" sign will disappear and their name inserted and highlighted. Then finish typing the rest of your post

Hey John Jenkins, I heard you like chocolate ice cream. Me too!

The "@" symbol can be inserted on a US keyboard by holding shift and pressing the number 2 (above the "W" key).

Hope this is helpful. Here's a post on Facebook's blog about this: https://blog.facebook.com/blog.php?post=109765592130

Trying to input address and cannot type in street, gets three letters and goes to street name and won't let me continue to type actual name karenwallin@aol.com


Thank you for your question.

Go to the Garmon.com website. Check for an "update for your Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver. Download the update which may take a while. It's best to start downloading and go do something else for a while until the download is complete.

If this doesn't work, contact support at Garmin.

Go to the Garmin website now (click here)


If your unit was around $100 or so, it's easier to just buy a new one then to send yours in for service.

I found a discounted unit online:

Discounted Garmin GPS


Hope this helps you solve your GPS problem.

My Garmin will not let me finish typing the street name.


Hard to solve over the net like this, but it sounds like your unit thinks you are somewhere other than your current location. This can happen if you turned the unit off at your destination and you aren't allowing it to update the location prior to typing in the street name.

So turn the unit on and click on the View Map icon to see where IT thinks it is. If it's somewhere else, check the satellite bars and make sure they are GREEN. (You may have to go outside to get reception.)

If your device is showing you at the correct location, I'm at a loss on what to advise.

Is Long Lake Road fairly new? If so, it may just not be on the maps yet.

Another "work-around" (government jargon) is to use a USB cable to connect to your computer, and then use the Maps from Google to find your address. Once you do, you can transfer the address to your Garmin by selecting the "Send" link on the box the points to the location on the map.

Not letting me put in the address


It searches the database for street names. keep typing your street name until it is the only one availiable. If it cannot find your street, then either: you are spelling it wrong, you have the wrong city/state or the street is newer than the database

Entering street names


The Garmin may not recognize the street name you are entering due to a scroll error. When you type, it constantly looks up streets beginning with the letters you already entered. If you happen to hit a wrong letter, it automatically errors out. Have you updated the unit recently? If not try that first.

Load USB drivers to PC (if not done already), connect Garmin, turn Garmin on, run webupdater, follow on screen prompts.

Typing the name of the street and can not get the name


if you put in the "F" and the "L" and say "done", it will tell you all the "FL" streets it knows. So if it's not there, it doesn't know it.
