20 Most Recent Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver Questions & Answers


How to activate my nuvi 660 using my mac and itunes or audible.com

I had the same problem and was able to resolve it using the procedure (listed below) from Audible technical support.  It's wordy, but the long and short of it is that you need to activate the Nuvi on a PC machine, then you can use it on the Mac.  To transfer files, open iTunes audiobook window, then drag your books of choice from that window to the Nuvi icon on the desktop.  I had no problems using this procedure.

Thank you for contacting Audible.com. On its behalf, I would like to apologize for any inconvenience and I am most committed to satisfying and resolving your inquiry to the fullest of my abilities.

As per your email I understand that you wish to use your Garmin GPS with Audible on your Mac.

Unfortunately, the Garmin is not supported on a Mac with Audible audiobooks unless it is first activated on a Windows PC. If you have access to a Windows PC please follow the requested steps below to activate it on a PC first. Once successfully activated you will be able to use your Mac to transfer your audiobooks onto it.

If you have access to a Windows PC to activate your Garmin GPS through the Audible Manager software please do the following to get started.

Make sure Audible Manager is installed in your PC, otherwise please go to: Audible Software page ( www.audible.com/software ) and download the version for Download for Windows 2000, XP, or Vista. Select Run or Save. During this installation process, a message: "If you already own an Audible Ready mobile device, please select it from the choices below", will prompt, please select Garmin GPS Devices from the list.

If Audible Manager is already installed on your PC: Launch Audible Manager, click on Devices > Add new device. You will be asked to connect to the Internet. Click Yes to connect. From the list of devices, select the Garmin GPS Devices, and click ok.

Once installed successfully now please follow the requested steps to activate your Garmin Nuvi using the Audible Manager software. 

Ensure that the device is connected to the PC and Internal Memory is selected to activate the Main Memory of your GPS. Please note you may transfer your audiobooks onto the SD card as well if you have one. 

Right-click the Garmin plugin in the bottom left corner of Audible Manager ( below Mobile Devices ) and choose activate. 

After entering your username and password, click ok. 

Once your Garmin has been successfully activated using a Windows PC you may now use your Mac to transfer your Audible audiobooks to your Gramin. 

Before you can transfer your audiobooks on to your Garmin device please follow the requested steps below to download your audiobooks.

Please log into your Audible Account, Click on My Library on the top of the page next to Home, Once you are in your online library towards your right hand side, you will find a tab called "Download It". This will start your download action from our server to your computer. 

This will download the selection onto your desktop and open iTunes. If the file downloads to your desktop, double click or drag the file into the iTunes library. 

Connect your Garmin device to computer. 

Drag the book from iTunes onto the Garmin device.

Playing Audible Files on Garmin Nüvi

From the Main Menu after powering on the Nüvi, select Travel Kit > Audible Book Player.
You can locate the title in the Audible Book Player by clicking on the Browse button. You can search all titles, or by Genre, Author, or Narrator. Select the category you would like to search by, and select the title. Press the Play button to begin enjoying your Audible selection.

Unfortunately, at this time we do not have any information regarding the Garmin GPS being supported on a Mac in the future. However, I will be glad to forward your email address to upper management so you are notified once the Garmin GPS is supported on a Mac.

As always, I hope I have met all your needs and requests, as it has been a pleasure assisting you today. If I could be of any further assistance, or answer any further questions, please let me know and I'll be happy to do so. 

I appreciate and value your business as an Audible customer.

I bought at Garmin Nuvi

It's strange if the plug doesn't fit the cigarette lighter socket. They can be a tight fit so if you find it a little big for the socket try putting pressure on it to push it in. If it absolutely won't fit you can buy cigarette lighter plugs in car accessory shops. If you can get one that does fit you can cut the one that's on the lead off and fit the new one.

If you cannot get any plug to fit you can get the lead wired permanently into the car. Any garage would be able to do it for you.

The GPS has gone bad. I would say just the speakers, but with bluetooth going out also, it is time for a new unit.

How do work stoped gps garmin

I had the same issue, i'm still using in 2019.. and all in Sudden no signal started appearing.. I tested all possible methods, but none of them worked.. today in morning, I opened my garmin's GPS module, and the cable was out form the circuit.. I fixed that back and wow.. it worked great. You should have tried this too.. like open the garmin screen, and then check if cable is fully afixed or not.

Memory Full - Garmin nuvi 200

Turn off the device, push and hold in right-down corner on the display, and turn on the device. Hold your finger on the display, until you see "Do you really want to erase all user data?" message. Then click "Yes"...

All private data will be erased. The user POI's too. You can backup the file G:\Garmin\gpx\current.gpx before erasing procedure.

White "press dot" screen

The actual answer is to press the dots, but use a dull plastic tool that fits "within" the dot. Otherwise the width of your finger is too imprecise to calibrate the dots and screen.Hope you, and others, get this and try it. It works. I just discovered it and did it, successfully after only about 10 presses.

Nuvi 200 can't see screen

They are not that bright light conditions. But if you cannot see anything at all something is wrong. Try it in a completely dark room and see if you can see the menu for settings - brightness.

How do know when my Garmin 855 is done charging?

Turn it on without being connected to the charger and check out the battery indicator - that will give you a bearing on battery condition.

Nuvi 660 shutting down and rebooting itself

It should still be under a one-year warranty. Contact Garmin for warranty claims. The first link below is Garmin's generic US warranty; the second is their customer support. http://www.garmin.com/en-US/legal/consumer-limited-warranty https://support.garmin.com/en-US
