Bruce & Alexs Cameron, April 3, 2008 We bought our Nuvi 660 to replace the maps and books that we previously used as navigational aids. In way too many instances when we were in new cities, we had lots of problems finding street signs while avoiding rush hour traffic and trying to read the maps at the same time. Our new GPS has outperformed our expectations in every way.
Impressive! Our 1st test was the drive from the airport in Ft. Lauderdale to our hotel late at night when we were tired and the traffic was busy. Wonderful results! My wife who had previously questioned why I wanted more useless technology praised me for buying the NUVI 660 after we arrived at our hotel with no missed turns and no arguments. Now, she has named it Jill and has laid claim to her. She does all of the set ups prior to departure. She especially likes the feature that helps her locate and get to malls.
Before leaving our hotel, the clerk advised of 2 major traffic accidents on the interstate so we just proceeded leaving the routing up to the GPS. The re-routing feature was absolutely fantastic as the alternate route took 2 minutes longer than the original estimated routing time.
A few days later, our 660 helped us by finding the closest gas station when the warning light came on in our rental. Wow, that was a blessing as had we kept going the way we were, the next gas station was close to 40 miles down the road.
The last feature I appreciated was the announcement of an accident and the estimated time delay.
The only recommendation is with regard to the keyboard. I still find it hard working with the alphabetized keyboard after working exclusively with the QWERTY style.
On a scale of 1 to 5 stars, my wife and I rate it 5 plus.
Dan, January 5, 2008 hi there, I recently bought my 2nd Garmin GPS, but found couple issues as bleow: 1. I drove from Toronto to Mississauga 43km apart, my first Garmin Street Pilot 2610 guided me on HWY 401W Express on the way and it really makes sense to me, but the NUVI 660 took me to the "Collector lane" instead which has more megering traffic & Exits I have to deal with! 2. On the Street Pilot 2610, it shows me the direction arrow but the Nuvi doesn't show this important info in the 3D routing mode until I touch the screen to get the North up 2D view OR the Trip info page on the busy roads, it's too dangerous to do so! 3. In the driving mode, Street pilot shows me the street name & even the number that I'm driving on but the nuvi doesn't do that, shows street ahead only. 4. when doing find on Street Pliot 2610 for the INTL airports in Toronto, Canada, it shows me Pearson INTL airport T1 Arrival, Departure, T2 Arrival, Departure & T3 Arrival, Departure, perfect! However, Nuvi only shows me 4 same names of " Pearson INTL airport"??!! don't know which one is T1, T2 and T3??? they're miles apart!!! 5. As you've been aware from many reviews, the FM Transmitter to pick up a CLEAR radio channel, I've to connect to a MCX external antenna but it's now no that handy but a little messy.
Joe, December 29, 2007 I got my Nuvi 660 for Christmas and have been playing with it for the last few days. The unit is really easy to use and will only highlight some of my observations/frustrations. Since I am in the Montreal area the 660 is really comical in the speech of French names when using it in English. Also, street names are preceded by rue(street), chemin(road), etc. and the 660 cannot find the addresses. I also found that I have to enter the exact format and spelling to find addresses, ex: mount xxxx could not be found until I looked at another map on my PC and found it was shown as Mt. xxxx. The FM option is not too reliable and lost the signal often no matter how many times I re-tuned the FM frequency. The car mount is not really useful for me as the windshield on both cars is too far away and I don't want to use the mounting pad provided because I am afraid it will damage/mark the dash when I want to take the pad off. One other observation, since I have been handling the unit often to input information, I found myself shutting off the 660 inadvertently as the position of the power switch is at the corner where I tend to hold the unit. I am happy with the 660 but since it is my first experience with a GPS unit I can't really comment on what it does better then other units on the market.
Peter, November 7, 2007 I bought the 660 about 8 months ago and am very pleased with it. My last GPS was a Garmin eMap which I still use (purchased from GPSCity when they first started) The Nuvi is such an advancement I don't know where to begin. Excellent screen day or night, fast calculations, greater accuracy and user friendly. I have'nt looked at the manual once, very intuitive. I took the unit to Houston and Montreal so far and have easily paid for the unit in gas and time savings. Little bit of a querk when reading french road info in english - can be comical at times but overall I'd definately put this unit on your list if you are looking for a great GPS.
