NOTE: This item has been discontinued by Garmin. It is replaced by the nuvi 760 (click here), with a new slimmer design and more advanced routing features.

The hottest little number in automotive GPS navigation has grown up. The Garmin nuvi 660 at Tiger GPS has the same great features of the nuvi 360 but with three major improvements: an FM transmitter feature, an integrated GTM 20 Traffic Receiver, and, most noticably, a 4.3" diagonal color touch-screen. The nuvi 660 at Tiger GPS is still sleek enough to fit in your pocket, albeit a slightly deeper one. It also features a Bluetooth chip for hands-free calling and dial-a-POI services, as well as plug-and-play compatibility with the same software as its cousins, the nuvi 350 and nuvi 360.

Place hands-free calls with Bluetooth wireless technology

The nüvi 660 integrates wireless technology with a microphone and speaker that lets you make hands-free mobile phone calls. Simply dial numbers with the nüvi's touch screen keypad to make a call on a compatible Bluetooth phone. To answer calls, just tap nüvi's screen and speak directly into its built in microphone.

In addition, easily look-up and dial numbers from your personalized phone book or from your phone's call history log. Don't know the phone number for your destination? Simply find and dial it from nüvi's extensive points of interest database - including hotels, restaurants, stores, and attractions. To see if your phone is compatible, click here.

Sound from your Stereo

The nuvi 660 at Tiger GPS has an FM Transmitter feature, which allows the nuvi to "broadcast" navigation commands and mp3s over your car's stereo system without hard-wiring it. Simply tune the radio to an empty bandwidth and the nuvi takes care of the rest.

Navigate with Ease

The nüvi 660 comes with preloaded maps of North America, and includes automatic routing, 2D or 3D map perspective, turn-by-turn voice directions that speak street names ("text-to-speech"), and a fingertip touch screen interface - making navigation easy. It accepts customized points of interest (POIs) such as school zones and safety cameras. In addition, with Garmin's included GTM 20 FM TMC traffic receiver, you can avoid traffic tie-ups by simply pushing a button to calculate a new route. (Traffic services available only in select cities where RDS-TMC coverage exists. Traffic receiver requires subscription fee once trial period ends.)

Enjoy Travel Kit full of entertainment and useful tools

Navigation is just the beginning. Nüvi includes many "must have" entertainment and travel tools including MP3 player, audio book player, JPEG picture viewer, travel alarm, currency converters, and more. In addition, optional software packages such as the Language Guide and Travel Guides can be added for language and content support.

Customize with Optional Software

Optional software available on plug-in SD cards, lets you instantly add new features to your nüvi - without connecting to your computer.

Language Guide - contains five bilingual dictionaries and a multilingual word bank and phrase bank that support nine languages and dialects. Even get a spoken pronunciation of each word or phrase. Click here for more.

Travel Guide - gives you helpful and thorough reviews and recommendations for restaurants, hotels, shopping, nightlife, sporting events and tourist attractions. Travel Guide for Europe currently available for purchase. Travel Guide for United States coming soon.

Savers Guide - a "geo-coded" coupon book that notifies you of nearby discounts on restaurants, hotels, shopping, and more at thousands of participating Entertainment businesses throughout North America

Garmin nuvi FAQs

Q: What are the differences between the nuvi 350, nuvi 360 and nuvi 660?
A: The nuvi 350 is the base model, with a 3.5" diagonal touch-screen, pre-loaded maps, SD card expanability, and all the travel and multimedia features. The nuvi 360 adds Bluetooth support for hands-free calls, dial-a-POI, and more. The nuvi 660 features an extra-wide 4.3" diagonal touch-screen, Bluetooth support, FM Transmitter and includes a GTM 20 traffic receiver. The traffic receiver must be purchased separately for the nuvi 350 and 360.

Q: What are the differences between the nuvis and StreetPilot c550?
A: The Garmin nuvi and StreetPilot c550 are both part of Garmin's "compact and simple" line. While both the nuvi and c550 are automotive units, the nuvi is designed to be pocket-friendly as well, which is reflected in the shape and feel. The nuvis only will take the Language Guide, audible book player, picture viewer, world clock, currency converter, measurement converter, and a calculator. The nuvi also has a screen where you can view and enter in lat/long coordinates. Otherwise, the navigation detail is the same: the nuvi and c550 will provide the same routes, with the same abilities to detour and add a single stop on the way. The c550 also has Bluetooth like the nuvi 360 and 660 and includes the traffic receiver, same as the nuvi 660.

Q: What is the difference between the nuvi and the StreetPilot 27x0/2820?
A: The StreetPilot 2720/2730/2820 are larger, bulkier units than the nuvi, and are not designed to be used out of the car (although you can easily switch them from one vehicle to another). The 27x0/2820 have larger screens than the nuvi 350/360 and are less susceptible to glare in bright sunlight. The 27x0/2820 also allow detailed PC planning of a route, and have the ability to plot over 250 stops per route, making it a better choice for drivers with multiple places to visit. The interface isn't as user-friendly as that of the nuvi, however, and the nuvi is pocket-friendly and takes extra software such as Language Guide, Travel Guide and Savers Guide.

Q: What "extra software" is available for the nuvi for North America?
A: For North America, there's the Savers Guide and Travel Guide. The Savers Guide includes an FV Entertainment card and shows you onscreen where you can use it to get discounts. The Travel Guide contains Fodor's information, such as restaurant and hotel ratings, so that when you look up a Point-of-Interest, you'll get a detailed description and rating of it, not just an address and phone number.

Q: What "extra software" is available for the nuvi for Europe?
A: First off, you'll need City Navigator Europe for detailed street maps. This is available on DVD-ROM, on a pre-programmed card with all of Europe, or on pre-programmed regional cards. You can put the DVD-ROM data on the nuvi's free memory or on a blank SD card. Then you can add Travel Guide (contains no maps), with information provided by Marco Polo such as restaurant and hotel ratings, so that when you look up a Point-of-Interest, you'll get a detailed description and rating of it, not just an address and phone number. There's also Language Guide software, which turns your nuvi into a pocket translator in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Portuguese. To use all of them, your best bet is to transfer the Language Guide and Travel Guide to the nuvi's internal memory (there's plenty of room for that) and then to pop in an SD card with the City Navigator Europe maps (there's not as much room for that).

Q: The nuvi is handheld - can I go hiking or camping with it? How about boating?
A: Nu! Despite its convenient size, the nuvi is not rugged, waterproof, or capable of taking topographical or marine software. The trip computer is for automotive routes only, and pedestrian routes on streets. For a Garmin unit that can do both, try a Quest or Quest 2, GPSMAP 276C, or see the Tiger GPS Handheld GPS section.

Q: Is there a monthly fee for using the nuvi?
A: GPS Navigation is always free of monthly charges. The live traffic, however, is a subscription service, and you must purchase it separately after an initial trial period. After the trial, subscription costs will be roughly $5 per month.

Q: Can I mount the nuvi on top of my dash, instead of with the windshield suction mount?
A: The nuvi box contains an adhesive disk, which sticks on to your dashboard and lets you turn the suction cup on its head. There's also the Dash Mount for nuvi 350/360 and Dash Mount for nuvi 660. These are sturdier solutions due to their design, and are also adhesive. If you don't want to clean up your mount, you can snap the dash mounts to the Portable Bean Bag Mount, which features a rubberized flexible base that keeps your unit secure on the dash without pasting anything down.

Q: What's the deal with Bluetooth?
A: Bluetooth is a short-range communications technology that allows pieces of electronics to send data to and from each other without cables, i.e. wirelessly. Many new cell phones and smartphones have Bluetooth technology, which allow them to connect to your nuvi 360/660. You can make and receive calls through the nuvi, automatically dial up a point-of-interest, and with a software patch (free at www8.garmin.com) receive text messages, which the nuvi can then read aloud.

Excellent,needs QWERTY, May 06, 2009
Excellent GPS, does everything well. Only drawback is ABC keyboard, non-intuitive and time-consuming if you type at all. Cannot change keyboard.

Nuvi 660, January 20, 2008
This is a fantastic GPS system. The unit has had 0 problems and has more features than I could use. The couple issues I have with this are, The FM transmitter doesn't create goood "reception" in my Civic (rear window antenna). It also doesn't come with any software to allow you to change maps on a PC. You need to go to other sites to get POIs. For the money, this should come with some sort of authoring software to make changes.

Love my GPS, great features...great investment!

Limousine Driver in LA, September 18, 2007
Joseph Serners
Sirs, this is far the best GPS. I just returned the Magellan 4050. Screen would freeze up and the sound would just cut off at any time. So far this 660 is doing a great job. Thanks for a nice product.

Great Buddy, September 08, 2007
Ken Foster
This is the a great little buddy to have with you at all times. I am always getting lost, but guess what? This Nuvi 660 gets me everywhere with 100% accuracy. I have a built in navigation system in my lexus, but this unit works just as good, and much more user freindly. Highly recommended. I doubt I will pay for navigation built in on future car purchases, this one is just as good and portable.

Maps are Great, My Nuvi 660 is exceptional, I can't leave home without it.

john j smith
this is the cadillac of GPSs, I have owned other GPs, none compare to the nuvi. the best thing I find about it is that is simple to use, even a child will have no problem programming it for dad

Great Service, May 24, 2007
I ordered this item and went with the free delivery. I got it within just a few days and it came in professionally packaged.
The unit is great! I travel quite a bit for business and this unit keeps me on track so I can think about the up coming meeting I'm trying to get to.
All of the options add a nice touch and even the bluetooth works great. I think I'll have to add a separate mic. to the unit because people say that I sound like I'm in a drum.
Otherwise I have highly recommended this unit to fellow friends.

Nuvi 660, March 21, 2007
Edward Douglas
The Nuvi 660 is awesome unit. It's easy to use, has a large screen and extremely accurate directions. I recommend the Nuvi 660 to anyone looking for automotive navigation.

For the directionally challenged for sure, November 23, 2007
Mel S
Really great product for those who are directionally challenged, or those who are not. The few instances where it does not recognize a new road are far out weighed by the number of times it gets me to my destination, keeping me posted on my estimated time of arrival. I like the save feature, ability to locate all kinds of places by just entering the name. As a several times over Garmin purchaser, I find the Nuvi 660 a wonderful asset for someone like me who is renting cars from coast to coast and in constant need to know where he is going.

Garmin nuvi 660 Portable Bluetooth Automotive GPS System, December 13, 2007
Tom Strickler
Overall good system. Have had a few issues with finding things. If you are finding something in another town, the system stays where you are if there is the same name. Some of the directions are not the fastest as the system is missing local roads.

GREAT!, December 30, 2007
June Brine
The Garmin 660 worked great in our recent trip to Kauai - found our way around the island with ease! I typically spend considerable time mapping out homes to view in real estate - the Garmin has cut the time spent in mapping.
Thank you!
June Brine, Realtor

Great and easy to use, December 30, 2007
I was surprised how easy and intuitive the touch screen is to enter destinations. Speaking the street names in advance of turns and giving the fraction of a mile or number of feet without having to take your eyes off the road is not only easy but a great safety feature. The ease of finding stores and restaurants is a big plus I had not even considered when I bought it.

Works Great!!!, January 03, 2008

I gave the 660 to my wife for her birthday and she loves it. It is wonderful. We like to travel by car to new places so it will be great to leave the mapquest behind.
