The hottest little number in automotive GPS navigation has grown up. The Garmin nuvi 660 has the same great features of the nuvi 360 but with three major improvements: an FM transmitter feature, , and, most noticeably, a 4.3" diagonal color touch-screen. The nuvi 660 is still sleek enough to fit in your pocket, albeit a slightly deeper one. It also features a Bluetooth chip for hands-free calling and dial-a-POI services, as well as plug-and-play compatibility with the same software as its cousins, the nuvi 350 and nuvi 360.
Place hands-free calls with Bluetooth wireless technology
The nuvi 660 integrates 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.
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 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 ("text-to-speech"), and a fingertip touch screen interface - making navigation easy. It accepts customized points of interest (POIs) such as school zones and safety cameras. .)
