Question about Garmin GPS
SOURCE: garmin 660
Have you updated the software since you purchased the unit? If not, go to Garmin's site, download WebUpdater and check to see if there is an update to the unit's software. If so, download this and see if it helps. If not, try downloading the same version of the software again. This might help also.

Try re-setting your gps by simultaneously pressing the Enter and Page buttons while turning it on if that doesn't work check your firmware i found the latest one v 3.90 would shut off my gps when recalculating v 3.70 is stable Garmin know that the new firmware can cause problems

it may just be that the maps are deselected. to correct this go into the tools/settings/map and then at the bottom of the screen in the middle you will see map info tap that and then at the next screen it will show you the maps which are installed if there are any without ticks just tap the box. tap ok and try again if. if there are no map choices then you will need to reinstall the maps on your unit

Use a Garmin 1450
The Garmin Nuvi 1450 can be used while driving or walking.
While driving, use the Nuvi 1450 to create a route to your destination and get step-by-step directions, to hear the names of upcoming streets, to tell you when to change lanes and to find out the speed limits on unfamiliar streets.
As a pedestrian, you can have the Nuvi 1450 create a route for you that uses a mixture of walking and public transportation, such as the subway or bus system, if you have purchased cityXplorer maps for that area.
Tap "Where to?" to set up a route. The "Where to?" icon is a large magnifying glass.
Tap "Addresses." The available categories are address, points of interest, go home, recently found, favorites and intersections.
Input the name of the state or county, if it is out of town.
Then tap "Spell city." Spell out the name of the city using the pop up keyboard.
Enter the address number and press "Done."
Then enter the street name and press "Done."
The "Go" screen opens automatically.
Tap the green "Go" button. The Nuvi 1450 will now calculate a route to the address.
Follow the voice prompts and map highlight to your destination.
Navigate Using Coordinates
Tap "Where to?" and then tap "Coordinates."
Tap the coordinate you want to adjust/input a new coordinate.
Tap "Format" to choose the right coordinate format for the map you are using.
Enter the coordinates. Tap "Next."
Tap the green "Go" button to calculate a route.
Use the Map Page
Navigate to your destination by following the voice prompts, highlighted route on the map and directions located at the top of the map screen.
Tap the "turn" icon located in the upper left corner of the screen to see the next turn. It may have a turning or straight arrow and the number of miles until the turn. Tap the bar across the top with the next direction listed on it to see a list of all directions.
Tap the plus or minus signs on the right side of the screen to zoom in or out.
Press the spinning arrow in the lower left corner of the screen to return to the main menu.
Tap the "car" icon traveling along the highlighted route to enter the "Where Am I?" screen and get your exact location, coordinates and nearby emergency services.
Hope this helps
