Good Points
When it works it's great.

Bad Points
Unfortunately reliability is not a strong point.

General Comments
I had my first Garmin Nuvi 660 in December 2006, all was good until the speakers just produced an audible distorted mush, Garmin promptly swapped units at a cost to me p+p but that was ok a new model arrived about a week later, a few months in other problems started, bluetooth sync with phone kept failing meaning had to restart both the phone and the Nuvi, then on start up bluetooth installing new software would come up this would take a few minutes, this happened every time got rather annoying, also the spinning blue balls would appear, contacted Garmin we went through a complete reinstall of unit a couple of times still no joy, so this time drove to Southampton a round trip of about two and a half hours returned with another new Nuvi 660, third time lucky.. unfortunately not after a few months, spinning blue balls, bluetooth sync problems and yet again the speaker failure, have tried to contact Garmin via the U.K. website, through the U.K. press office and the press office in the U.S and no reply. I am not impressed.

Just to update, had a reply from the U.S. press office, and the following day Garmin U.K. contacted me, my nuvi is being returned to Garmin, fingers crossed for better reliability from this new unit.

I am now the owner of a newer model, thanks to the US and the UK press office, they were great and organised the exchange.<br/> <br/>The new unit is superb and fingers crossed all will be well.
