The 660LM is not mentioned, would that be covered by the 665LM GPS Navigator?

If you enter 660lm in the box you'll be told it doesn't apply to that model

I had a feeling it would be coming sooner than later for my 550..... not surprised one bit. Will continue with OSM maps.

Do the OSM maps fix the problem with the new Garmin maps where the street names look like this C......... D....

The Garmin version I have is 2023.10 and they are abbreviated, my OSM I have is dated 2021 and they are not abbreviated.

What are osm maps? I can't update my 665.

Strange 660 still gets updates but not 665.

Open Street Mapping ... Google it and you'll find numerous providers of Garmin compatible maps

There are links to many sources here: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM ... n/Download
Scroll down to the region you need, pick a source that offers routable maps, preferably with an installer compatible with your computer.
Although the underlying OSM data is the same, the maps can vary in appearance, detail, and coloring, so you may want to try several to see which one works best for you. Have only one active routable map on your Zumo at a time.

Also make sure that you use the same map on your PC when making the routes... it will make your life a whole lot easier.
