660 Owner, March 21, 2013 The Garmin Zumo 660 is well made, the fit and finish is exemplary and it comes with the requisite accoutrements to use it in a car as well as on a motorcycle. As it is still winter, it snowed today, I have not used the Zumo 660 on my bike yet. I have used it in my car. The interface is intuitive, intelligent and easy to comprehend. My location has been accurate on any trips I have made. The 16:9 aspect ratio 4.3” screen can be seen in bright sunlight and will automatically mute its colours at night.
When entering a destination addresses, it must be precise. I entered an address that the Zumo 660 did not know. It turns out that the address was just outside the boundary of the town that I entered. The address was advertised as being in the town, but it was not. This can make it difficult to find addresses. This not a fault with the Zumo660.
The use of micro SD card to store routes and music requires a specific directory structure. This is not covered in the owner’s manual. I found the correct data path on a discussion site. Using the Garmin site to update the software was easy.
The Zumo 660 paired easily with the Bluetooth headset in my helmet. When switching from streaming music to intercom,the Zumo 660 is smart enough to automatically pause the music and then resume once I finish using the intercom. Navigations instructions take president over all audio.
I am well pleased with the Zumo 660 and would recommend it.
When researching satnavs, I read on the Garmin site the Zumo660LM comes with lifetime map updates and found it at other online retailers priced at $649.99. The Garmin site did not differentiate between the Zumo 660 and the Zumo 660LM as the 660 is a discontinued model. I found the Zumo 660 on sale for $599.95 at gpscity.ca. Thinking I found a great deal, a $50.00 savings, and would have lifetime map updates, I purchased it only to find out afterwards that it was a discontinued model and did not come with lifetime mapupdates. Contrary to saving, this “sale” will end upcosting me more. To purchase lifetime map updates costs $82.43. That’s a $32.44 lesson I shan’t soon forget, especially when asked for advice on purchasing a satnav or GPS related items.
Roaddog, December 19, 2012 I've only used this on my motorcycle a few times and already
it is paying off. It is easy to read and weatherproof. I also
can see the screen without my glasses.
GG, December 14, 2012 A little issue with the item not in stock when web site
said it was in stock. 13 days to receive but communication
from GPScity was good.
Miss the zumo 550, November 30, 2012 Technology should improve as time goes on not get worse but
it has here. The 660 and 665 are BOTH not as good as the
old Zumo 450 and 550s were. They calculate slower which is
a real frustration and even DANGER while on a bike if it
needs to recalculate and youre coming up on turns with cars
behind you. The mounts not as secure, the units actually
bulkier which is a pain when you get off the bike and need
to stick it in a motorcycle jacket,the screens arent as
quick or easy to manuver through and last but not least the
thing wont work right when the battery is anywhere near
low. This is really a concern because it make you wonder
what it would do if you lose power in an emergency but need
to navigate somewhere. Ive condensed this review a LOT but,
seriously, read this carefully and really THINK about the
points ive brought up here because the things ive listed
here are definitely unacceptable. They'd be fine if not for
the fact that Garmins OLD motorcycle GPS is FAR superior.
You know the one im talking about, the OLD one which they
decided to just stop offering so they could sell
these "updated" more expensive units. You know what? I
wouldnt have a problem paying this if the unit worked as
well as the old one but it doesnt and ive used BOTH the 660
and 665 now. They're actually slower than the 550 ever was,
harder to carry around, more expensive, have a cheaper
mount and they act very strange when the internal battery
is low. They also arent as beefy (tough) as the old zumo
550 or 450, they also made the cover where the SD card and
computer cable go make the unit not work when its off. The
old one you could pop the flip open cover and ad or remove
the SD card no problem. Now its a pain. Just amazes me how
they can make something that worked GREAT that they
discontinue and replace with something thats WORSE and yet
MORE EXPENSIVE. How does that work!? Whos responsible and
why arent they looking for a new job?? To be fair, it will
get you where you want to go though. All im saying here is
its a so called newer updated motorcycle GPS that doesnt
work as well as the ones it replaces and ive used BOTH the
660 AND 665. Neither are as good as the discontinued zumo
