Garmin 660 broken screen

The suction cup failed. Device seems fuction but input is impossible due to
broken glass. Garmin wants $250 to fix a piece of broken glass. I can by
a certified used one for $299. That makes my unit worth $44. Can I get the glass and fix it myself?

    I appreciate advice, but the screen is still working, the picture is perfect. When I press

    the initial "I agree" the screen procedes to the next step and displays the appropriate

    choices. From there on, the broken glass does not flex sufficiently to trigger input.

    I would like to await more suggestions.

    will peruse the garmin repair site again to see
    if I can obtain this $2 part for less than $250.

    Great Job! Your answer led me to Ebay seller nuvi2007. Also the correct name for the part I needed (the clear glass that covers the LCD)is "touch screen digitizer." It is sold as a kit with tools and instructions.

So the top part of the lcd screen is cracked the touchscreen is still working ok?

You may have to replace the whole screen, if you feel that you are up to the task, you have to take the garmin apart, remove the lcd screen from the mainboard, then you need to take the lcd screen apart and replace the glass, thats all you might have todo, im not sure how the screen is actually build in your garmin.

    Its Liquid crystal display (lcd) glass which you might get it from some repair shop if they have one in spare or else the company Garmin itself keeps the spare parts to repair those units are under warranty,

Garmin nuvi 660 froze up.


This is not caused by an update. Please check your unit's serial # to see if it starts with a "12P", "14V" or "143". If so, these units have a specific touchscreen that can fail even without physical damage to the glass or screen. The only way to resolve it is to replace the touchscreen & glass. You will not lose any of your data. The unit is not frozen and you can verify it by quickly pressing the on/off button. If you hear a beep, it's not locked up. You touchscreen has failed and won't accept any input. Please see this link:

The earplug/headset input on my Garmin Nuvi 660 is broken.


Interesting problem but I have repaired this problem before. This is not going to be something you can fix yourself.....believe me... I have 30 years of experience in Electronics.

The headphone jack either has to be resoldered or replaced. When its loose, in most cases the pins of the jack are broken and/or the printed circuit board tracks have been torn off the board. The jack is a surface mount part.

A new jack must be installed but there is no way to solder in a new jack because the printed circuit board tracks are gone. The new jack must be installed with epoxy to the board and new wires have to be soldered from the printed circuit board to the jack.

There's around 2 hrs worth of work involved in this repair.

Hello rkfowler,

While the suction cup mounts included with most GPS units are very effective, they certainly can fail. It sounds like you are doing everything you can to make it work: cleaning both the windshield and the cup itself. You also might try putting a few drops of water onto the suction cup before affixing it.

If the suction cup mounts aren't working out for you, Garmin does have a couple of other options including a vehicle mount that uses a super strong adhesive or a friction style mount. These are available from Garmin directly on their website (www.Garmin.com) or through your local consumer electronics store, such as Best Buy.

Best Regards,
Ken

Garmin street pilot c330 - Suction cup lever broken


If you cannot un-assemble the suction cup assembly to fix it, then you would have to replace it. If it is under warranty, demand an exchange.

Garmin nuvi won't turn on


folks, the garmins have an on-board battery that needs to be powered up (at least occasionally) via the usb port - like from your computer. just using the dc car power cord does nothing for this battery. i've had this exact same problem on both my 760 and 780 nuvi units. fixed it using the usb charge. seems to run down differently for all the various nuvi models. my regular charge will hold for 7 hours on my old 660, my 760 and 780 work about 5 hours. my 'power up' failed on the 660 after 10 months with no internal battery charge, but the 7xx models only took about 5-6 months to 'fail.' hope this helps. jack b :-) in midland, tx usa
