    Hi All,

    Apologies if this is in the wrong thread, but I wasn't sure where else to put it.

    Does anyone know how to fix the "insert battery" error on the Garmin 660? After seeing this message I replaced the battery with a new one and after powering on the unit, I'm still getting this error, even when I unplug the unit from the bike (and/ or an external power source).

    I'm a bit baffled. Any one experienced this problem and/ or have suggestions to fix it? I'm two weeks away from a big trip across Europe and if I can't get the unit to work, I'm guessing Waze/ Google maps will be the path forward.

    Thanks kindly,

    Jeff
