Please follow the instructions below to remove the "Loader Loading" message from the unit.

To fix this problem on Windows:

  1. With the nuvi powered off, press and hold the upper left hand corner of the touchscreen with your finger
  2. Continue to hold the touchscreen while pressing and releasing the power button on the device. The Garmin Logo should display
  3. Continue to hold the touchscreen while connecting the device to your computer
  4. After 30 seconds, the screen should flash white. At this point, release the touchscreen. A green progress bar should display on the device. After the progress bar completes (45-60 seconds), the device should go into Mass Storage mode
  5. Open the nuvi drive that appears in My Computer or Computer
  6. Locate the Voice folder and delete the extra Voice files that are not needed
  7. Type ".System" (without quotations) after the nuvi's letter in the address bar
    • For example, if your nuvi appears as E:\ then after typing ".System" in the address bar, it should look like this: E:\.System
  8. Locate the GUPDATE.GCD file and delete it
  9. Safely remove your device from your computer
After the corrupted update file has been removed, the device should work properly. Run the WebUpdater program to update the device's operating software.

To fix this problem on a Mac:
  1. With the nuvi powered off, press and hold the upper left hand corner of the touchscreen with your finger
  2. Continue to hold the touchscreen while pressing and releasing the power button on the device. The Garmin Logo should display
  3. Continue to hold the touchscreen while connecting the device to your computer
  4. After 30 seconds the screen should flash white. At this point, release the touchscreen. A green progress bar should display on the device. After the progress bar completes (45-60 seconds), the device should go into Mass Storage mode
  5. Open the nuvi drive that appears on the Desktop
  6. Locate the Voice folder and delete the extra Voice files that are not needed
  7. Click the GO menu at the top of the computer screen
  8. Click Go to Folder
  9. Type .System
  10. Click Go
  11. Locate the GUPDATE.GCD file and move it to your trash
  12. Empty the trash
  13. Eject the nuvi from the Mac
After the corrupted update file has been removed, the device should work properly. Run the WebUpdater program to update the device's operating software.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 660 lost Europe maps

Eventually managed to speak to a man at Garmin who confirmed that it was not loading any European maps because it didn't have enough spare memory to load them all. He said that he would email me instructions for freeing up sufficient memory, the email never arrived but I decided to delet all the voice languages that were no use to me and all the other language 'help' files and tried again - it worked.
At no point did I get a 'insufficiant memory' warning, which would have been very helpful, nor is there any guidance for how much memory will be required when embarking on the update. Take note Garmin...

When trying to put in an address the Garmin asks me for a country and then does not accept it after typing in the first letter. The other functions appear to be ok.


Hello

you need to update your map

Purchase your map updates (if necessary). You can purchase map updates for your Garmin Nuvi from the Garmin website. There are two basic options: a lifetime purchase or a one-time upgrade. The lifetime purchase gives you access to any new updates for the life of your device, while the one-time upgrade will provide you with the latest current maps, but you'll need to purchase again if you want to upgrade again later.

Make sure to log in with your myGarmin account before purchasing the map upgrade.

Connect your Garmin Nuvi to your computer via USB cable.

Open the "myGarmin" website and sign in with your Garmin account. Make sure to sign in with the account that you've purchased the map updates on.

Click the "myMaps" tab on the myGamrin dashboard. This will load a list of all of your purchased map upgrades.

Click the drop-down menu in the "Recent Map Purchases" section. Select your Garmin Nuvi from the list of devices.

Install the Garmin Communicator Plugin when prompted. This is required in order for the Garmin website to transfer the map files to your Gamrin software on your computer.

Download and install Garmin Express. This is the program that allows your computer to interact with your Garmin Nuvi.

Register your device in Garmin Express. If you haven't already registered your device, you'll be prompted to when you start Garmin Express. You'll need to register in order to update the maps.

Click the "Updates" tab in Garmin Express. This will show all of the available updates for your Nuvi, including the new map update you just purchased.

Click the "Show Details" option next to your Map Update. Click the "Install" button that appears. You will need to accept the agreement before the update installs.

Wait for the maps to download and install. Once you agree to the terms, the map update will begin downloading to Garmin Express, and will then be transferred to your Nuvi. This will likely take several minutes to complete.

unplug the Nuvi when the update is complete. The Nuvi will reboot and begin installing the updated software on the device. This may take another couple of minutes.

You can download garmin express here

How to update maps on gps


If you have lifetime maps, download Garmin Express for Windows or Mac, make sure GPS is fully charged, connect to computer. Let Garmin Express find GPS, do a complete backup, and then do a most recent map update. If you do not have lifetime maps you will have to purchase new maps from Garmin.

How do i download maps on my nuvi


If you purchased the onetime or Lifetime map update just run Garmin Express, otherwise you may need to purchase those or plan on replacing the Garmin Device. If something happened to the original maps that were on there and you are too cheap to buy new ones, there is no way to load back on those old map files

Update my garmin nuvi 1250 gps `now`


Hello,

If you are looking for map upgrades there are a couple options.
One is to purchase the update on DVD then load it to the unit.
Two Purchase a Lifetime Subscription to mapping which would allow you to update the GPS every 3 months.
You can also obtain a onetime update VIA download on Garmin.com. For best prices check www.gpscity.com

Hi, hav a garmin nuvi. Has Garmap Africa series 2008 March edition. Is it possible to update the SD card via a free download. Tnx


For maps that came with a Garmin GPS - a map can be updated for free within 60 days after purchase. The purchase date is recorded after registering the device at MyGarmin.com or when the GPS detects movement above a certain speed. If the GPS is purchased with lifetime updates - it will be free throughout the lifetime of the Garmin GPS.

Just see what happens when registering the device at MyGarmin.com. A map update will show when there's one available for your Map version.

To download the latest unitsoftware visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater First you have to set up an account at Garminusing the serial number on your GPS. Once you do that you can download firmwareupdates for free. After installing WebUpdater once from the Garminwebsite, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connectyour compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from yourcomputer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start","Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater" REMEMBER: It takes hours todo a complete a map update.
You bought the Lifetime maps so you can download 4 times per year
By the way, the correct Garmin approved powerOR download cables are a must!! Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.
