Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I have been using the password feature, and there is one issue I have with it. On my NUVII, I only get ONE chance to put in the password. If I mess up that one time, there is no second try. Most systems give you 3 trys and then revert to the second level security (the location in the case of the nuvii). As a result of this one try approach, I have had to ceased using the security because its too risky and I cannot afford to be on the road with my nuvii not functioning. Is there any way to change the one time entry to 3 opportunioties? Thanks John Baker

    It is a Nuvii 200 -- the low priced spread! I guess that means I am stuck with the "one strike and your out" security!

    Thanks for your comments

    Its a Nuvii 200 (low priced spread). I guess I am stuck with the "one strike and your out" security therefore.

If you are talking about the Garmin Nuvi 660 (and most others), there is no limit on the wrong # of incorrectly entered passwords. If you type in a wrong password and it says "Invalid Password", all you have to do is wait 15 seconds and the screen will clear allowing you to try again.

    Ok, the reason why I said 660 is because your question was posted in the Nuvi 660 area. All of the Nuvi's will allow you to retype the password after a 15 second reset, if a wrong number has been entered. Sorry, we are all at the mercy of the one who wrote the firmware. It can't be changed by the user. - Jim

Try using the correct e-mail address and/or password. If you can't remember your password, you'll need to verify your account with FB to change your password. If you can't remember your e-mail address, chances are, it's not YOURS in the first place and you should not be messing around with anyone else's account.

You're out of luck on this one that is why they put the security feature on there. You'll either have to take a chance with another password and lose your info or format the drive and lose the info anyway. Sorry couldn't be much help.

Garmin nuvii 350 - cannot register unit


You have to choose a unique username when registrating. The myGarmin page is global, so alot of the regular names are already taken up, try adding a number or two, or try a totally different username.

Cannot Enter Configuration Mode on M7310


O.K. I'll take a chance. The mnemonic I used to remember the password is either going to work or not.

Try CATMOB. I am sure it starts with 228xxx and I remember something about the cat when she's hungry.....

If it works thank Sandy the Cat.
