Hi
Recently purchased a 660LM for motorcycle use.
Comparing the screen quality of 3D mapping to my TomTom 1005 the Garmin is very poor.
Have everything set as it should be, I think, but the lack of detail is very striking, is this normal for a Garmin.
The map info shows 3D along with a an identical map with the same description and wording other than saying 3D.

Do you mean 3D view? If so it certainly shouldn't look the same as the 2D view. You don't say where you bought it from but I'd take it back there and ask to try another one, as yours appears faulty.

Just check that Tools, Settings, Map, Map View is set to 3D and Tools, Settings, Map, Map Detail is set to highest.
