660 locks when asking for Route Preview

Post by kernowing » Sun Aug 04, 2019 9:33 am

Problem is pretty much as in Topic title. If I select a custom route and request a preview, the unit sometimes locks itself--no response to any key and the only escape is press and hold "power off" for about 10 seconds, which then shuts it down. It shows good satellite reception and battery condition is good. It will show previews quite quickly for UK routes but European routes seem to be the problem. Brexit maybe??? :roll: :lol:

I don't have an answer but sometimes, on my 665, it does the same thing but I can just back out of it. I attribute it to just the way my maps are loaded, mostly on the Sim card.

But it has never locked up as you have experienced.
