Hi all,
First of all, I travel every week all over the US and Canada and that is why I have the 660 GPS. I try to carry just one charger for everything I have (ipod, phone, bluetooth headset, nuvi 660, etc...). I bought the versacharger and some USB tips that takes care everything I carry except my 660. Do you know if there is a cable with USB on one end and the other end going to the 660 suction cup mount charger slot? Thanks.

I think the response to your question says it all. I recall some threads on this forum dealing with USB cable specs for the Nuvi connection but no one has mentioned one with a connector for the suction cup.

I don't understand what use such a cable would be other than to charge a different item via suction cup mount. If that's the reason, you still have to end up carrying a separate cable (to replace the charger cord for the other item.)

Gatorman,
I'm not so sure if I understand you, but my whole point is to cary 1 charger for all my toys when travelling. If there is a USB to 660's suction mount cable, I can use my versacharger to charge my 660 while navigating and leave the 660's FM traffic charger along with my razr, ipod, Plantronic charger home.

Perhaps just charge through the mini USB port then?

I do not believe that one can connect the car charger to the mini USB and still use the gps for navigation at the same time. That is why I'm looking for this particular cable.

I used my 350 for navigation in the car. The 12vdc charger pluged into the side, no problem. If it was charging at the same time as it was navigating I don't know, but it worked.
I plan on ordering a 12vdc charger for my 660 to use my pickup. I use the 110vdc charger in my Avalon to navigate. Are they charging charging?....don't have the slightest idea, but they work.

If you use the Garmin OEM charger, you can navigate and charge via the mini USB port in the side of the 350. If you clip the 350 into the OEM cradle, you can use any USB charger to plug into the mini USB port in the back of the OEM cradle.

Be careful with non-OEM chargers if you use the mini USB on the Nuvi itself. Many of them don't have the proper resistance which makes the NUVI think it's hooked up to a PC and won't allow you to navigate while it's hooked up. I had this problem with a non-OEM charger. Works fine with the OEM charger.

OEM chargers are in my opinion the only safe way for any equipment. I've used other type of chargers, but never would I use one on my Nuvi.

Okay, I'm a little confused. The 660 OEM car charger is not USB unlike the 350/360 and only can be connected to the cradle which is also not USB. Are you saying that I can use the USB car charger (Like the one came with the 350/360)to charge the 660 while navigating? I do not have the 360 car charger, but when I have my 660 turned on and as soon as I connect the Garmin Home charger to its side USB, the map disappears and it thinks that I'm connecting it to a computer. I would think it goes to 'computer mode' when connected to its side USB regardless. Am I wrong?

Sorry for the confusion. I don't have a 660 but I can't imagine the data/power source is any different than the 350. The connector on the body of the 350 is a mini-B USB connector. It allosw for charging and data transfer. The connector on the back of the 350 cradle accepts the mini-B USB connector but ONLY for power, not data transfer.

. The OEM Garmin car charger does not force the Nuvi into 'computer mode' when connected in this manner. You can navigate and charge at the same time. At least this is how my 350 behaves.

I had an email thread with Garmin on this topic.
You'll be disappointed.
Read below - appologies for the length of the message.

Problem:
I have recently purchased a NUVI 660.
My unit stops displaying the maps and goes to a splash screen as soon as the
USB port is connected, either to a PC or to a USB car charger/adapter.
Please advise regarding possible re-configuration to allow the unit to
continue its GPS navigation function, even when the USB port is connected.

Thank you.

Thank you for contacting Garmin:

Correct if you connect a USB cable to the USB connection on the side of the
unit it will charge and go into the mass storage device mode. In the car
you will need to use the 12V power cable/traffic receiver that it came with
to power the unit and you will not want to use a USB cable in unit while in
the car.

Subject: Re: Tech support request for nüvi

I am interested in the possibility of powering my nuvi-660 with an USB car
charger/adapter connected to the side of the unit.

Many cars, including mine, have a center armrest-console with power outlet
and AUX input jack.
I would like to be able to use the nuvi-660 as an MP3 player, positioned
next to these connectors.
Currently, in addition to having to mount it even if no navigation is
needed, the FM bands in any major city suffer from interferences.

Also, my state law - Minneapolis/Minnesota, prohibits attaching the suction
cup to the windshield; same as California's law.
The current geometry with the power cable connected and extending at the
bottom of the mount impedes access to parts of the dashboard.
It would be easier if there were an alternative powering mode, such as an
USB power cable connected to the side of the nuvi-660 unit.

Are there plans to enhance the functionality of this specific model to
accept power from an USB car charger/adapter without disabling its MP3
player mode?

Please forward this feedback.

Thank you.

Thank you for contacting Garmin:

The Nüvi 660 will only be able to be powered from the 12V power/traffic
cable that comes with the unit that connects to the back of the mount for
the Nüvi. The side port will only be for the connection for the computer or
charging the unit with an A/C charger.

Thanks for a very helpful reply. This is why I asked if there is such a cable made by Garmin or third party on my very first post of this thread.

They failed to say that you can nagivate with the 110vAC plugged into the side of the N660 and the charger plugged into a 110vAC automobile outlet (some have them). I wanted to be sure and emailed them.
This is the answer I received from Garmin on the subject:

Hello

Thank you for contacting Garmin International!

I am happy to help you with this. Make certain to use the A/C adapter which came with the 660 when using this outlet.

Bob72,
Do you know why is so important to use the AC adapter provided by Garmin?
Is it a matter of power supply compatibility, such as its exact output: 5volt/1amp?
Does that AC adapter provide protection against power surge, or something else?

Do you think I would risk damaging the N660 unit using a generic USB car charger with a similar power profile: 5V/1A output?

I would appreciate your help.

Thanks.
