Updating garmin 660

30 Sep

You can get details of how to update your maps at When you're updating you get the option to select onetime or lifetime updates.

Note that lifetime refers to the lifetime of your satnav not your life.

Maintaining updated Garmin Zūmo 660 software prevents crashes and maximizes hardware and system performance.

Using outdated or corrupt Garmin Zūmo 660 drivers can cause system errors, crashes, and cause your computer or hardware to fail.

best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

These are some questions which can arise when least expected.

If I knew I'd have so many problems with this unit, I would not buy Garmin.

Why is a Nuvi 660 screen unresponsive when touched?

Need to perform a master reset on your Nuvi 660 and don’t know how?

I could not work out a way to recover from this as the upgrade failed (not fully complete) and the only option was to reset the unit via the power button.

When the unit came back up again the following error came up on the screen: "system software missing" The Nuvi would not boot! HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display.
