Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

My Bluetooth interation suddenly stopped working

I have had no problem for two months then yesterday the unit stopped working with my phone. The Icon is up on the screen but does not see my phone numbers and will not dial home if asked. If someone is calling in it does not give the option to pick up and if I pick up from the phone I need to disable the unit for me to hear my caller on the phone. Both the phone and the unit say they see each other.

Thanks.

    My suggestion is to delete the phone profile from your list in your Nuvi and re-pair them up again. If that doesn't work, see if you can pair up your Nuvi with another phone. See if it works on the other phone. Perhaps the bluetooth transmitter has failed in either the Nuvi or your phone. Another option is to perform a factory reboot on your Nuvi. Also try turning off your phone and then back on again.

Many problems related to pairing can be corrected by verifying that the latest firmware is loaded to the GPS unit and the phone. To update the firmware on the GPS, please use the WebUpdater program. To make sure the phone has the latest firmware updates, please contact the phone service provider for more information.
One additional tip is to always pair the phone with the GPS from the phone itself. Do not attempt to pair to the phone from the GPS unit.

My garmin 765T does not have the bluetooth icon under settings any more. How do i pair up my blackberry to the garmin


This is usually caused by a corruption in the bluetooth firmware.


First make sure you have the file "006B055301.GCD" within the "Garmin/Remote SW" folder. You will need to connect the Nuvi to a PC with the USB cable to confirm the file is there.

If it isn't there you will need to download it and put it there. A copy of v3.4 can be found here:

http://www.shcbc.net/gps/006B055301.GCD

Next, SAFELY REMOVE your Nuvi from windows before removing the data cable.

1. Go to the screen that shows the map and where your current position is.

2. Press the icon in the lower left-hand corner that shows your arrival time.

3. You will now come to a dashboard screen. Press and hold your finger on the odometer gauge until you come to the diagnostics page.

4. Press the next button until you reach the bluetooth page.

5. Press the button that says "clear". This will erase any saved phone pairing information on your Nuvi.

6. Now press the UPDT button. You should see a flashing bar at the bottom of the screen that says its upgrading the bluetooth firmware. Wait until it reaches 100% and the flashing bar goes away.

7. Once the update is complete, press exit and you should now be able to enable your bluetooth and see the bluetooth icon. You will need to re-pair your phone with your Nuvi.


The problem is, that the bluetooth update file, named "006B055301.GCD" is corrupted, so your unit is locked in the updating bluetooth mode.

I have lost the bluetooth


The Bluetooth symbol on the bottom left of the screen will not show up unless the unit is linked with a compatible phone and Bluetooth is turned on. When the phone is not connected or the Bluetooth is turned off, you will not see this icon. The same thing goes for the Traffic icon. If you do not have an active traffic receiver connected, the Traffic icon will not show up either.

Gps not working


You most likely need a firmware update. My company designs and programs GPS units and software and about 3 months ago the government changed the sats. in such a way that certain Chinese gps units stopped receiving data. Email me at justin_a_mitchell@live.com and tell me what you can about the make and model of the unit itself and I can see what I can do about getting you a firmware upgrade.

Dont have cell phone icon anymore on nuvi 360


Have you tried to re-pair it with your phone? What does the bluetooth firmware version show up as on your Nuvi? If it says 0.0, you need to reflash the bluetooth firmware. You can find the firmware version by selecting the wrench icon, then sekect the gear symbol and then select "About". Use Garmin's webupdater and connect your Nuvi to the PC and let the webupdater reflash yoour Nuvi. Garmin just updated the bluetooth firmware on November of 08 to v3.4 so you would want to do it anyway. When you reflash, you have to repair the phone to the Nuvi because the reflash erases your phone setup.

Bluetooth/phone


I suspect you may need to 'pair up' your phone by bluetooth first if you haven't already done so-then once they are paired the icon should appear on your unit. Instructions for pairing should be included. Hope this helps!

Garmin NUVI 660 BlueTooth


I had the same problem, and this is how I fixed it. Now it's working fine.


Thank you for contacting Garmin International,

If you are currently running the most current version of bluetooth software, and you are still seeing issues where your compatible phone is still not connecting properly, please try the below procedure, which will reinstall the version of bluetooth you have downloaded in case there was any corruption during the transfer or installation of the bluetooth version.

1. Power the unit on

2. Touch View Map

3. Touch the ETA/Speed button in the bottom left hand corner.

4. press and hold your finger over the speedometer for 10-15 seconds until a new screen appears.

5. Touch next at the bottom of the screen until the top blue banner reads Bluetooth Status.

6. Touch UPDT P, then Touch yes.

7. At this point the unit should go to a page that says Updating Bluetooth Firmware, allow this to finish, once finished, press quit, then press and hold the back button. At this point, go back through and try to connect your Bluetooth device again.

My Garmin 680 bluetooth stopped working w/ my LG Vx8600


I have found the only thing that works thus far is to click on the red phone in progress icon then go to "call options" then click transfer audio to phone, then transfer audio to nuvi. Sometimes I have to do this twice. but it works.
