Your unit appears to have an SD slot. It should be as simple as putting your MP3's on an SD card and then placing the card in the GPS device. You will need an SD card and a reader/writer for your computer to accomplish this.

Will my garmin play music?


Yes, if it has a media player. The 660 will. It will play MP3's but you have to load the MP3's onto the GPS using a USB cable between the GPS and your PC.

How do i put music on nuvi 360


You need to connect your Nuvi to your PC using a Mini-USB to USB cable. This cable should have come as an accessory with your Nuvi 360.

Connect the cable betwen the two and you should see the a PC icon show up on your Nuvi and the Nuvi will show up in your Windows directory as a storage drive... usually drive "G".

The files have to be in MP3 format (.mp3 extension). You can right click on the MP3 file on your PC and select copy, then go to the Nuvi directory and paste it into the directory folder named "MP3" on your Nuvi.

Thats it.... now make sure you "SAFELY REMOVE" the drive in windows before you unplug the cable.

When you select the MP3 player on your Nuvi, select the browse button and you should find your MP3 files.

Garmin nuvi 760, don't seem to be able to load music onto it


I have a 660, and it works fine from the sd card. Make sure the files are .mp3 and that you toggle the source from the mp3 player screen. Can you see the files in browse mode ?

How do download music to a garmin


The music must be in a MP3 format with an .mp3 extension on each file. You need a USB cable to connect your Nuvi to your PC. Once you have the files on your PC, just copy and paste them onto your Nuvi directory in the MP3 folder.

How to put music on my tom tom go 730 Can't figure out how to put music on my Garmin Nuvi GPS 650


It should work the way other Garmin units work. Plug the unit into the computer via the USB cable. The computer should recognize the unit as a mass storage device. Click on the Garmin (it should be shown under your storage devices) and you should see a folder marked MP3. Drag and drop the music files you want into this folder, then disconnect the unit (safely, of course). That should do it.

How do you get SD cards to play ???


Are the songs in MP3 format? Typically you connect the GPS to the PC using the USB interface and using Windows Explorer, drag & drop the MP3 files into the GPS's MP3 subdirectory.

Then on the main screen, select travel tools and then the MP3 player. Select browse and choose a song.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Garmin Nuvi 650 660 680 6XX SD Card PNY 4GB SDHC Works


just got my A-Data 8GB card today and proceeded to load it up with 7.2GB of MP3s (nearly full capacity).

I timed with my wrist watch the bootup times and there was no difference in the boot times whether the SD card loaded up with MP3's was inserted in the unit or not. What did change is that even one minute after booting up the songs wouldn't show up in the "MP3 Player" window, it just had a blanked out browse button and a generic icon like it has when no music is loaded.

It took a full 90 seconds or so for the MP3 player to actually become responsive and show my selections, but after that it was working normally (from what I can tell).

Best Regards,
