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.

You can't. Do you not remember your security location? As long as you take the unit back to this location, it will unlock. Otherwise, you'll have to send it in to Garmin with your original receipt to get it unlocked.

Owners can select a pin code to use which locks the unit preventing use by theives. Sat Nav theft is a big market. The unit needs to be sent to Garmin who will verify you are the registered owner and unlock it for you. If you bought at a market is there a good chance it may have been stolen?

SOURCE: add Europe sd card to Garmin 660

No. When you plug in the SD card, the Nuvi will load the map from your SD card. Once you get to the main menu, select the wrench symbol, then the map symbol and then "map info". You should see both the US and Europe map. Make sure the Europe map is checked. You can uncheck the US map. This is how you switch between maps. The reason why you have to have the extra map on the SD card is because the Nuvi can only have one map on it's internal drive, one at a time.

However, backing up your US map is a good idea.

Good luck,
- Jim

I DO NOT REMEMBER MY PIN HOW DO I RESET IT


If you forget the PIN or password unlock code to unlock the Garmin unit, the best solution is to bring it to Garmin to get unlocked. It is a anti-theft feature, you can't clear it.

Neither of us remember password for garmin 660 how do u reset?


You have three options for unlocking a PIN locked Garmin:

1 - Enter the correct PIN
2 - Take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered
3 - Send the unit back to Garmin

Unfortunately, these are your only options as this is a security feature to prevent unauthorized use of a stolen GPS

My garmin nuvi 650 is locked, the touch screen will not do anything, I have a 5yr extended warranty w/Repairtech and they are out of business


Please explain "locked"..... do you mean locked with a PIN code or locked in that it wont accept any inputs from your finger?

If the second, I can help you with that issue. Please see this link:

My garmin nuvi 660 is asking me for a pin and i done have it. i need help


Unfortunately, even if you perform master reset on Garmin GPS unit, it does not reset Garmin Lock security feature, which password-protect most Garmin electronic devices to deter theft. If you forget the PIN or password unlock code to unlock the Garmin unit, the best solution is to bring it to Garmin to get unlocked. “Secure Location” does not unlock a locked Garmin unit either as it’s only a temporary fix as when it’s turn on outside the security location, the device is locked again."

So unfortunately, there is only one option: You have to send your nüvi into the Garmin, who can unlock it. Remember original receipt.

If you start it up and are located in the place where the pin code was set, then the unit should unlock once it acquires sufficient satellite signals.

Unlocking security code


The first thing you have to do is enter the correct PIN or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was set. It will now unlock. You can then press the icon that looks like a wrench, and look for an icon that says Garmin Lock (it is in different places on the different units, and I forgot exactly where it is on the 660, sorry.) You can then change the security code from there. If you are trying to unlock the unit without the PIN number, you will be unable to do so without taking the unit to the security location. In that case, your only option is to send the unit to Garmin.

PIN CODE


The only way to unlock a PIN locked Garmin is to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location where the PIN was set. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.
