This notice is provided in accordance with California’s Proposition 65. See www.garmin.com/prop65 for more information. Important Information Map Data Information: One of the goals of Garmin is to provide customers with the most complete and accurate cartography that is available to us at a reasonable cost. We use a combination of governmental and private data sources, which we identify in product literature and copyright messages displayed to the consumer. Virtually all data sources contain some inaccurate or incomplete data. In some countries, complete and accurate map information is either not available or is prohibitively expensive. NOTICE regarding windshield mounting; special notice to drivers in California and Minnesota: State law prohibits drivers in California and Minnesota from using suction mounts on their windshields while operating motor vehicles. Check your state and local laws and ordinances for similar restrictions. Other Garmin dashboard or friction mounting options should be used. Garmin does not take any responsibility for any fines, penalties, or damages that may be incurred as a result of disregarding this notice or as a result of any other state or local law or ordinance relating to use of the unit. (See California Vehicle Code Section 26708(a); Minnesota Statutes 2005, Section 169.71.) The California Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003 requires the recycling of certain electronics. For more information on the applicability to this product, see www.erecycle.org. nüvi 680 Owner’s Manual \u0018 Preface Caring for Your nüvi Your nüvi contains sensitive electronic components that can be permanently damaged if exposed to excessive shock or vibration. To minimize the risk of damage to your nüvi, avoid dropping your unit and operating it in high-shock and highvibration environments. Protecting Your nüvi Cleaning the Unit The nüvi is constructed of high-quality materials and does not require user maintenance other than cleaning. Clean the unit’s outer casing (not the touch screen) using a cloth dampened with a mild detergent solution, and then wipe dry. Avoid chemical cleaners and solvents that can damage plastic components. • Do not store the nüvi where prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures can occur (such as in the trunk of a car), because it can cause permanent damage. • Do not expose the nüvi to water. Contact with water can cause this unit to malfunction. • Though a PDA stylus can also be used to operate the touch screen, never attempt this while operating a vehicle. Never use a hard or sharp object to operate the touch screen or damage may result. Avoiding Theft Cleaning the Touch Screen Clean the touch screen with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth. Use water, isopropyl alcohol, or eyeglass cleaner, if needed. Apply the liquid to the cloth, and then gently wipe the touch screen. • To avoid theft, remove the unit and mount from sight when not in use. Remove the residue on the windshield left by the suction cup. • Do not keep your unit in the glove compartment; thieves know where to look. • Register your product at http://my.garmin.com. • Use the Garmin Lock feature.

Touch the button beneath Frequency Adjust. Touch - and + to select the same frequency to which your stereo is tuned. Listening to the nüvi on an FM Stereo For best results, select a frequency below 90.1 FM. When searching for an appropriate FM frequency on your FM stereo, look for an unused frequency that has steady, consistent static. If you hear slight noises and sounds in the background of the static, choose a different frequency. As you travel, you might need to change the frequency for the FM transmitter. A frequency not used by a radio station in your area might be used by a station elsewhere. Switching between the nüvi and an FM Stereo 1. On the Menu page, touch > Audio Output. 2. Touch an output mode, and touch OK. Tip: To switch the audio output between the nüvi and an FM stereo, quickly press the Power button twice. nüvi 680 Owner’s Manual 29 Using the FM Transmitter FM Transmitter Information The FM transmitter is intended to transmit your nüvi’s audio to your FM stereo. Do not adjust your FM settings while you are driving your vehicle. The distance between the vehicle power cable, the nüvi, and the FM stereo antenna may also affect the noise level. Vehicles with antennas located far away, such as a rear-mounted antenna, may experience more interference from outside noise sources than vehicles with front-mounted antennas. As you drive, you may notice changes in the background static even though there is no FM station using that channel. You may notice this as you drive through intersections where certain kinds of traffic lights or other municipal electronic systems are operating. You might also notice this effect when the terrain changes, allowing distant stations to be received by your car stereo that 30 were not received when you made your initial frequency selection. These and other sources of electrical interference may make it necessary to look for another frequency. nüvi 680 Owner’s Manual Managing Files Managing Files You can store files, such as MP3s and JPEG image files, in the nüvi’s internal memory or on an optional SD card.
