Red blinking light

Hi, Ephraim. The flashing red light indicates that the device is showing "low battery". It could be that the LG phone charger fits the charging port on your bluetooth headset but it is not compatible with your device. In order for you to know that it is charging, the device should show a steady red light(means charging).
Please take a look at the table reference below.
•With the Charger Plugged In
•Headset Indicator Headset Status
Red-----------------------------------------------Charging (battery level less than 50% charge)
Yellow-------------------------------------------Charging (battery level more than 50% charge)
Green--------------------------------------------Charging complete
With No Charger Plugged In
Headset Indicator Headset Status
Off ---------------------------------------------Power off
Three blue flashes------------------------Powering on/off
Steady blue --------------------------------Pairing/connect mode
Rapid blue/purple flashes -------------Connection successful
Quick blue flash --------------------------Incoming/outgoing call
Slow blue pulse --------------------------Connected (on a call)
Slow blue flash ---------------------------Standby (not on a call)
Slow red flash ----------------------------Idle (not connected to phone)
Slow purple pulse -----------------------Connected call muted
Steady red ---------------------------------Attempting to connect
Quick red flash ----------------------------Low battery

Note: After 20 minutes on a call or of inactivity, the light stops flashing to conserve power, but the headset remains on

Hope that'll help you in some way.

When I try to couple the BH-218 to my Garmin i press the ]as in the manual but only get voive prompt on or off, the coupling mode does not seem to function.

My guess is you don't have the headset in pairing mode. The instructions below are from the instructions for the BH-218"
Before using the headset, you must pair and connect it to a compatible phone.
1. Make sure your headset is switched off and your compatible phone is on.
2. If you've never paired the headset with a device, or you've cleared the pairings,
switch the headset on.
If you've previously paired your headset with another device, press and hold the multifunction button
for 5 seconds.
Pairing mode is switched on, and a blue indicator light starts to flash quickly.
3. Within 3 minutes, switch Bluetooth on in your phone, then set it to search for
Bluetooth devices. For details, see the user guide of the phone.
4. On your phone, select the headset from the list of found devices.
5. If asked, type in the passcode 0000.
When the headset is connected to a phone, the Bluetooth indicator light flashes
You can pair your headset with 8 phones, but you can only connect it to 2 phones at
the same time.
With some phones, you may need to make the connection separately after pairing.
Tip: Can't connect the headset to a compatible phone? Make sure that the headset
is charged, switched on, and paired with the phone.

How to connect to phone

Pairing the Headset
*You are required to pair the headset with your mobile phone or other device before using it.
1. Ensure the headset is off, then press down the P2 button until the pairing mode (both Blue & Red-LED's are flashing
alternately), then release. This will take about 6 seconds.
2. Initiate pairing process of your mobile phone. Refer to the manual of the mobile phone for the direction. You will see a new
item "BT headset" added in your Bluetooth device list after the searching process.
3. You will be asked to enter a pin code to complete the pairing. Enter 1234 and confirm. (Note: the 1234 is a default pin code
pre-stored in the Headset) The red indication will turn off and the blue indicator will flash slowly after the paring is completed
4. Once the pairing is complete, the Red LED will turn off and the Blue LED will begin blinking, (indicating standby mode). If it is
not finished paring within 2 minutes, the headset will go into standby mode, and pairing is unavailable. You will need to restart
and repeat steps 1-3.

Seems to be connecting, phone says it is connected, beeps like its connected, but yet does not work.....calls still go through the phone itself.....

Below are the steps for resetting the Bluetooth table in your cell phone and on the B150 headset.

1. Go into the device history / trusted device list of your cell phone. Delete / remove all the devices / headsets from the device history in the cell phone (highlight or move the screen cursor over the device and you should get an options choice one of which will be delete or remove).
2. Once all the devices / headsets have been deleted / removed, shut the cell phone off.
3. (If you have a smart phone with downloadable apps ie. I-phone, check with your provider before doing step #3 to insure battery removal will not clear applications you have purchased or downloaded). The purpose of step #3 is to clear any keep-alive memory the phone and headset were holding. Remove the battery from your cell phone for 15 minutes.
4. With the headset powered on (it does not have to be connected to the phone, just powered on) , hold the volume up and volume down button at the same time until you hear 2 beeps (easiest to do if you hold the set in front of you and use both thumbs). This step clears the Bluetooth table of the headset.
5. Place the headset back on its charger for the remainder of the 15 minutes the battery is out of the phone. It is not necessary to shut the headset off prior to placing the headset on the charger.
6. After the 15 minutes is up put the battery back in the phone and turn the cell phone on.
7. Turn the phone on and get it ready for paring. Consult your phones user guide or call your service provider for help with your cell phone.
8. Put the headset in pairing mode by holding the Multi-Function Button until the lights are flashing alternating Red and Amber, you will then release the Multi-Function Button. Please note the headset will continue flashing Red and Amber until the paring cycle times out (approximately 2 minutes) or completes the paring with the cell phone. If you only press and release the Multi-Function Button the headset will not go into the paring mode.
9. Pair the headset and cell phone together.

Once the headset is in paring mode, go to the Bluetooth menu / connections of your cell phone. Select add new / search for / find new device (different phones have different but similar names for the options). The cell phone should find a device called BTHS. Move the cursor over the BTHS and press (OK, select, enter, or whatever your phone uses for a prompt). If the cell phone asks for a passkey code you will put in 0000 (four zero's). The headset will then pair and connect to the cell phone. Your phone may ask you if you want to connect to the BTHS and/or add it to your trusted device list, press (OK, select, enter, or whatever your phone uses for a prompt).
