Summary: Garmin has firmly established itself as the go-to veteran manufacturer for navigation hardware, and with the Nuvi 660 the company has taken all of its past experiences and lessons to form what is probably the finest navigation product on the market today. If you are willing to fork over the cash for the substantial price tag for the expanded travel tools, you will be rewarded with an exceptional gadget.
Summary: If you can afford the hefty price tag, the Garmin Nuvi 660 is a solid-performing and versatile GPS device that offers all the navigation basics, tools for the world traveler, Bluetooth, and more.
Pros: The Garmin Nuvi 660 offers an accurate GPS receiver, text-to-speech functionality, and traffic capabilities. The versatile system also features a gorgeous display, integrated Bluetooth, travel tools, and multimedia functions.
Cons: The device is expensive, and there are no external volume controls. The system also doesn't support multidestination route creation.
Summary: The nuvi 660 adds a larger display and Bluetooth hands-free calling to an already solid previous unit, but some small deficiencies still remain. Best of all though, the pricing difference between models is minimal, so the 660 is definitely worth the extra money.
Pros: Display, User interface, Size, Solid features list, Bluetooth hands-free calling
Cons: Address searching order, Sunlight glare can be an issue, Slow re-routing times in some instances, no external volume controls
Conclusion: The Garmin nuvi 660 will appeal to those who want traffic data as standard and full European maps. The widescreen is a bonus, but in our driving using it didn't really make that much of a difference. Yes, you can see more road on the screen and it helped in the close confines of London where perhaps you were interested in seeing what roads were around your chosen path, however no more so that any other device with a smaller screen that we've tested here at Pocket-lint.
Pros: Easy to use interface, traffic support, widescreen, maps of Europe
