    I've been checking several posts regarding conversions but none for older units.
    Can the nuvi 660 be converted to any newer/higher model firmware?

    @birro
    I haven't been able to determine the PCB P/N for 6x0 so it's not possible to check its hardware relationship to other units which is what indicates likely successful cross-flashing: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    It's quite unlikely that there is any possibility to convert a 660 or any other related earlier nuvi imo.

    Thanks a lot Neil.
    My 660 is very old, yes. But still I can't find any model at the moment as an upgrade for mine.
    Lower current models are still below the old 660 functionalities. So I think I'll rely on it for a while longer...

    I recall that a couple of years ago, when Garmin released 2X5 series, a few older nuvi could be converted. I was looking for anything regarding the 660 without success at that time.
    I really thought your great table could match...

    Sorry for stressing the subject out... Is there any ways for me to check the PCB P/N? Maybe on my unit... or maybe something that could help a newer donor firmware unit?
    (lol... I'm trying my best to keep hold of my unit... but... it seems it won't last much longer...)

    No way to check the PCB P/N with 6x0 that i'm aware of. Search in hex plain text or unicode yields nothing and it's not present in the hidden menu behind the clock. Sorry, maybe one of the Software Experts has found a way.

    PCB P/N with 6x0 may be absent as fact. 6x0 is the greatest dinosaur with Garmin proprietary SW, HW and FW.

    Hi , any one here can post links for nuvi 660 firmwares in version 460 and 470 and 480 because i experience some problems with the bluetooth functions on the firmware 490 ( i ever had this problem on the past and i tryed much solutions like enter in maintenance mode to update bluetooth firmware, and other things but the only thing that solved for a long time my troubles was to revert the device with older firmware but don't remind if it was 460 , 470 or 480)

    the trouble is that when i try to activate the bluetooth in the nuvi = the device freezes and does not whant to boot ; i need to put off the device and reboot him , but the bluetooth is still off and if try to activate again it freezes again........

    so please if you can post links for 460 , 470 and 480 thanks a lot
