    Zumo 660 map update turned it into a brick

    Sunday morning, I decided to update my Zumo 660 to the latest maps/software. It churned away all day and when I ejected it. I discovered it was now an expensive brick. No matter how I tried to boot/reset it, it would go to "LOADER LOADING" and lock up. I have to give Garmin lots of credit on how they responded. I e-mailed them Sunday night and got a response around 6:00 Monday morning. Unfortunately, the directions didn't fix it and I spent ~30 minutes on the phone with a technical rep working through it. After determining it couldn't be fixed remotely, he issued a RMA and cut the standard (out of warranty) repair price in half as he could see I was a loyal customer (4 registered GPSs in the system). I explained I was headed to the rally later this month and really needed it back quickly. He said not to worry and wasn't kidding! I dropped it off at UPS Monday afternoon and it was signed for at Garmin Tuesday morning around 10:30. Tuesday evening, I received an e-mail saying the replacement had been shipped - about 8 hours to process it. The "new" GPS should be on my doorstep tomorrow. That's some good customer service.

    Great news Bruce!! Thanks for posting as I'm about to try to update my 660. I hope I don't have the same loading issues you experienced.

    I was doing the update on a MacBook Pro and I believe there are some issues with the Macs from time to time. I updated my Nuvi this morning and it went fine (except not enough memory for the full North American maps).
