Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Screen appears "foggy"

My Nuvi 660 is about a year old. Lately the screen is no longer clear and sharp. It looks foggy although still viewable in the evenings. Directions still work so it is just the screen that is a problem.

well everything on a touch screen device uses the screen - and tapping or touching it or hitting to hard hurts it. and they can go out easily - if its not too old - the manufacturer replaces them with waranty - and if you paid in credit - your bank even , can get those receipt statements for you showing purchase and CAN be tracked. If its brand new - take it back right away. get a new one. if past maufacturer warranty and is brand new - DID YOU KNOW THAT MOST CREDIT CARDS "DOUBLE" THE MANUFACTURERS WARRANTY. THATS TRUE. READ YOUR FINE PRINT! *wink* so find that CC statement.lol - or maybe its time for a new one.
hope this helped x404x

My screen on the nuvi 660 will not respond.


Please don't attempt to do this yourself. You need the right tools so you don't damage the case and internal parts. Also, a replacement touchscreen does NOT come with the 2mm double-sided adhesive to apply it to the LCD bezel. You have to pry off the old touchscreen & glass, clean off the adhesive residue and apply the new screen. I've done this hundreds of times. Unless you have the right tools, you risk damaging your unit. I've received countless number of units that were damaged by their owners.

System software missing


Sometimes when a GPS unit is turned on for the first time or is moved to a new location, it needs to rebuild the orbiting Satellite Database and relationship to those satellites at a specific location. Set the unit on and allow it to sit under the unobstructed sky for at least 10 minutes, could take longer if this is the problem. See if the error message clears, and normal function returns.

Buttons on screen jump around


Ok I have a few questions. When you mean it jumps around do you mean:

1. When you press a 3, the 3 button becomes a 7 graphically or
2. When you press a 3, the 7 button is highlighted and chosen.

The first thing I would do is try to recalibrate your touchscreen by pressing the wrench symbol, then the display icon and select calibrate screen. Press the series of dots as you are asked to do and see if that clears up your problem.

If that doesn't work, then I would do a reflash/ugrade of the firmware. Perhaps the firmware is corrupted. This can be done by dowloading Garmin's webupdater at www.garmin.com and connecting your Nuvi to your PC and letting the program reflash your firmware.

The last solution is to replace the touchscreen. Are you sure the screen is not cracked anywhere? A cracked screen will certainly cause a touchscreen to either not work or activate another button when pressed.

Garmin Nuvi 660 shutting off


It sounds like your battery is defective. They can be replaced. The Motorola phone cable is not wired exactly like the Garmin, and your Nuvi thinks it's connected to a PC. Radio Shack carries a charger for the Nuvi. I have one myself.

Let me know if you need additional help with your battery problem.

Garmin Nuvi 660 Can not locate Sattelites


Please read the solution that resolved this problem for someone else. Most likely, you have already tried this. However, the antenna of your Nuvi 660 is the same as the 3xx Nuvi series. I know this because I have worked on them.

http://www.fixya.com/support/t1115882-garmin_nuvi_360


If the above procedure does not work for you, the entire antenna assembly will need to be replaced.
The other option is to purchase an external antenna for your Nuvi and plug it into the external antenna port (gold connector) on the Nuvi antenna assembly.

Best wishes,
- Jim
