I just bought a Nuvi 660 and I love it but there have been a few addresses that it does not recognize. Does anyone have any ideas of a fix or do I just need to wait for the next revision of map to come out?
You more than likely have to wait for a map update. I also have missing roads in my area.
Do you get the message No Matches Found?
Are any of the addresses new construction and have not been mapped yet?
Sometimes I'll have issues with streets that change names or have 2 names such as Lancaster Ave./Lincoln Highway. Example: If you look for addresses in Exton, Pa I won't see Lancaster Ave. in the select streets list.
Maybe your unit knows the address using a different abbreviation for something in the address that you are looking up - I've seen some oddities in trying to input addresses with what I thought were common abbreviations that were not common at least as far as my Nuvi 350 was concerned.
Another option would be to geocode the address, get coordinates, and put those into the unit. You can geocode addresses at:
Also, if you find places that exist in life, but not on the map, report them to Navteq (Garmin's data provider) at:
Thanks for the help.

Don't know exactly what you are searching for, but...
I too have found this to be true with the c550.
I was able to find a road such as CR 1123 (county road 1123) Searches failed, but browsing the map, and zooming in to that road I found it to be listed as CR-1123. I tried everything but the hyphen while in search mode.
I have also noticed that you may need to type in the name of the neighboring city in order for the Garmin to recognize the address. For example, I had to find a guitar shop in Studio City, CA. The Garmin could not locate it but when I listed the city as North Hollywood, then it was able to find it.
