The Garmin Nuvi 660 is the ultimate Navigator, Translator, Entertainer and Tour Guide. The Garmin Nuvi 660 is the stand out member of the Nuvi family.
With all of the features found on the Garmin Nuvi 360 including Voice Turn-by-Turn directions, Bluetooth, SD Card Expansion slot, Garmin Lock, Pre-loaded Maps of USA and Canada, Street Name Announcement and more, the Garmin Nuvi 660 goes one step further with the addition of an FM transmitter, included GTM 20 Portable Traffic Receiver (built into the 12V DC power cable) and Color 4.3" diagonal Touch Screen
FM Transmitter: Connect your Nuvi to your car stereo wirelessly!
Using the internal FM Transmitter found on the Garmin Nuvi 660, you can listen to the Nuvi's MP3 player and Turn-by-Turn directions through your car stereo. Simply set the Nuvi's audio output to "FM Transmitter", select a FM frequency with steady static on the Nuvi screen and then turn you car radio to the same station. Now just sit back and enjoy the drive.
Portable Traffic Receiver: Find out about traffic delays before it's too late
The GTM 20 is an integrated FM-band receiver, antenna, and cigarette lighter adapter that provides real-time Traffic Message Channel (TMC)* data to the Garmin Nuvi 660 - which then depict and identify problem areas on their moving-map displays. All you have to do is drive around the problem.
Color 4.3" diagonal Touch Screen: Bigger is better!
Not much more can be said. The Nuvi 350 and Nuvi 360 both have a 3.5" diagonal screen and the Garmin Nuvi 660 has a 4.3" diagonal screen. The choice is yours!
Place hands-free calls with Bluetooth wireless technology
The Garmin Nuvi 660 along with its counterpart the Garmin nuvi 360 integrate wireless technology with a microphone and speaker that lets you make hands-free mobile phone calls. Simply dial numbers with the nuvi's touch screen keypad to make a call on a compatible Bluetooth phone. To answer calls, just tap nuvi's screen and speak directly into its built in microphone (optional external microphone is available).
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 nuvi's extensive points of interest database - including hotels, restaurants, stores, and attractions.
Navigate with Ease
The Garmin Nuvi 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, 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 the included GTM 20 FM TMC traffic receiver, you can avoid traffic tie-ups by simply pushing a button to calculate a new route.*
Enjoy Travel Kit full of entertainment and useful tools
Navigation is just the beginning. Nuvi 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
