i got n97mini, it keep ask me to pair with a bluetooth gps device


Your Garmin has Bluetooth handsfree activated, it's nothing to do with navigation. All that's happening is that it's sensing that your n97 has Bluetooth turned on and so your Garmin is asking whether you wish to pair the devices.

Paired or not, your Garmin still uses it's own internal GPS navigation and does not utilise the navigation built into your n97.

If you already use your own preferred handsfree device then just go into the Garmin's menu to turn off Bluetooth. If you don't already have handsfree then I strongly suggest that you pair your phone to the Garmin and use the facility to remain safe and legal.

If you wish to disable Bluetooth on the Garmin then on most models, starting from the homepage, you press "tools", "settings", "Bluetooth" and then click on "Bluutooth enabled" and toggle it to "disabled".

I hope that this answers your question, you can let me know by rating my answer. If not then please add a comment instead to more clearly explain what your problem is and I will try again.

Ether you got a stuck key or your bluetooth card is malfuctioning. The bluetooth is inside the computer generally underneath you need to open up the campartment and take it out. Also what you can do is go into the device manager from windows and disable the device there.

connecting bluetooth to blackberry


Hi. You didn't say which Blackberry you have. I'll assume you know who to open "Options" (if not, please let me know what model you are using and I'll give you more specific instructions.

To connect your headset, start on your Blackberry.
Open "Options"
Open "Bluetooth"
Open menu within Bluetooth
If not already on, click "Enable Bluetooth"
Open Bluetooth menu again.
Open "Options".
Turn "Discoverable" to "Yes"

Now to your headset.
Start with your headset turned off.
Press and hold down the silver call control button.
After 6-10 seconds, the light will flash blue, then it will flash red, then blue.
Release the buton when you see the red/blue.

Back to your Blackberry.
Again open "Options"
"Bluetooth"
Open the Bluetooth menu.
Click on "Add Device".
Your Blackberry will search for your headset.
If you are prompted for a Passkey, use 0000 (that's 4 zeros).
After a short time, your headset will appear on your Blackberry.
It is now ready to use.

Make sure you go back into Bluetooth Options and change "Discoverable" back to "No".

A tip: If you will not be using your headset for a while, "Disable" Bluetooth to save battery life.

Hope that helps!
