Save your favourite Garmin Satnav!
on 9 May 2012
My Nuvi 660 stopped holding its charge and only worked sporadically when connected to the car charger. Garmin support advised that this model was no longer supported and advised looking for replacement batteries on Amazon. However, before you hit the 'Buy Now' button, have a look at the Youtube video which takes you through fitting the battery, step-by-step. You will also need to purchase a screwdriver set, as the screws are not your normal Philips or cross-head.
The screws are extremely tight and the only warning I would give to the diy person, is to take great care when releasing the spring on the antenna, or as with me, it will jump across the room and you will spend half an hour on your knees looking for it! Otherwise it is straightforward and you will save yourself £100 buying a replacement Garmin.
I have listed below a very helpful Youtube video step-by-step guide and links to the items required (all avaliable from Amazon)
