Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Problem when receiver is plugged in to charge.

The receiver works fine until I plug it in the 12 volt or ac to charge the unit. The receiver quits functioning and only the windmill screen displays. If I unplug the receiver, then it works fine. If I am driving and need to charge the battery, the unit doesn't operate when being charged (windmill screen displays).

Are you using the charger that came with the unit? If you do not use the one that came with it, the unit may be reading this as though it were plugged into the computer. It will charge then, but will not operate unless unplugged - just as you are describing.

My Garmin nuvi 265 was working fine until 2 weeks ago. We got a screen message saying that the XM traffic was not supported, and then noticed that the unit no longer could be charged using the car...


The traffic receiver is in the car charger cable. The charger should have a red light on if it is getting power. If the light is on and the unit is not charging and you have no traffic, the charger cable is bad. If the light is off, then either the fuse did not fix the problem, blew again, or is somehow not sitting properly in the charger. Another thing you can check is by using the unit in another vehicle. If it works fine there, then the charger is not making good contact with your vehicle outlet for some reason. You will probably have to buy a new traffic receiver charging cable.

When I connect my Garmin Nuvi 200w to my car to charge it does not work. It just receive charge but does not work. If I disconnect it the GPS It work.


Are you using the garmin power cord or are you using an aftermarket cord? Some after market cords have usb plugs that although they plug right in to the power port on the unit, they tell the unit that you are updating the database. The unit displays only a picture of a computer connected to the unit and that's all it will do. Their is a way around this. Simply wait until the unit displays the about photo of the computer attached and then unplug the power cord from the unit. After the screen clears immediately replug in the power chord. This must be done quickly before anything appears on the screen. If you're too slow, simply repeat this step until you manage to replug the unit before anthing appears on the screen. Once plugged in as about the unit will operate normally on the external power source until you either turn it off or unplug it. Simple repeat above when ready to resume use.

Unit makes sounds but no display


Hi
If unit is as per pic I assume it has external antennae. Ensure the multi pin plug is secure in the rear of the unit and also use a fully charged 12 volt battery, Has it been working before?? Usually a rear plug problem. How old is unit. Just had a another thought, check that the polarity is correct, ie pos wire to RED (Pos) on battery. Very polarity sensitive.

Battery Charging, Nuvi 35


Charge the unit over night, Plug in the AC charger and you should see a lightning bolt over the battery bar graph display.

With the charger plugged in, gently press and hold the on/off power until the screen goes black and displays the text "Charging battery". After a few seconds, the screen will go black to conserve power. At any time, you can press the screen and it will light up saying its still charging.

If you let it go over night, when you touch the screen, it will say Charging Complete and you can then remove the charger. You should have full green bars on the battery indicator.

AC charging problem


okay if it charges with your DC, and it gives you plomebs with the AC, i would only charge in the car because your AC charger must not be changing the current to volts and you can easily blow it up... you can buy another charger and that should solve your problem
