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.

Try deleting the stereo from your bluetooth profile in your phone. Then try disconnecting the positive battery lead for a minute or so and reconnecting to reset the stereo. Then try again. If not, contact Kenwood support, and if it's still under warranty period, I would complain :)

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.

H170 bluetooth headset - I can hear caller but caller cannot hear me. Worked fine for many months even when I got new Iphone 3gs. Yesterday, just stopped suddenly. Very clear sound coming from person I...


Because of the design of these headsets, over time the wire leading to the mic can wiggle and break loose, which allows you to hear fine, but prevents the listener from hearing you. My bet is that it's the red wire, as it tends to have more pressure placed on it. The dismantle process isn't easy (i'm working on the very same problem at the moment!) but if you'd like to try it and are able to do very fine resoldering I can share my notes with you. Otherwise, you're out of luck and will need to purchase a new headset. Sorry I can't give you better news!

Bluetooth/radio stopped working


In first instance try to disconnect the unit from the mains and reconnect 15-20secs later 8 times out of 10 it helps. otherwise you might need to reprogram the unit processor which is more complicated and requires knowledge and understanding of electronic principles, assembler, also some devices to perform the task.
Otherwise I'm not sure about exact model of your ECU (computer) but in some cases it also gives the access to reprogrammable radio unit, so in this case laptop, one simple program (u can find it as free downloadable .exe file) and special diagnostics cable wuold sort everything out. But as I said not all ECUs offers such an option. And if you'll go for this step you need some knowledge about electronics and soldering as you'll have to build the cable I mentioned, as tu purchase one would be quite painfull for your vallet.

Hope it helped although if you need any further information just drop a line here.

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.
