Question about Garmin Nuvi 760 Handheld GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Bluetooth not connecting to the car audio

Hi,
I have a ford mondeo with bluetooth connectivity for the phone. I bought a new 760 and it sees "ford audio" but will not connect. The ford manual says type a pin of 0000 into the phone and the 760 says it uses 1234 but I cant see how to change either....assuming that is the problem anyway. My aim is to have the car audio work normally while driving and if the GPS has something to say the normal car audio is interrupted during the gps message.
Any suggestions appreciated.
jim

Screen comes up with updating bluetooth firmware & stays at 45%.


Your unit if locatiing a cell phone close by, could be yours or a friends in the car, on standing near you.

I would disable Bluetooth first, to do that go to Tools...Settings.... Bluetooth.... under Bluetooth disable then re-do your Bluetooth connection

Tools....Settings... Bluetooth .. under Connection you can remove the connection there also

If you don't have a Bluetooth connection you want to use just disable it

I had to buy a new cell phone [droid] as my previous one was damaged. Although connected my NUVI 760 it will not down load the address book in the cell phone. What am I doing wrong??


Connect your 760 via USB to your computer and go to www.garmin.com and hover your mouse on "Support" and then click "Software". Select "Webupdater for Divice Software" and follow the directions to download updates for your 760. Keep in mind, not every cell has the same level of supported features, so some things that worked through your 760 on your old cell may no longer work with your new cell. If you have further question, click on "Contact Support" to get factory help.

I hope this helps!

I am having the same problem with a twist, sound works from the fm and headphone but only from the right side no left audio. I have the 760 and it only has one speaker and my guess it that it gets its feed...


If you use the headphone jack a lot and your missing the audio from the speaker and one channel from the headphone jack, then it's possible that some of the headphone jack connections have broken off of the PC board. The audio goes to the speaker through the headphone jack.

Please see this link for more info and read the section about the headphone jack.

Garmin 760 bluetooth problem


I also have the 760 & the first gen Boulder (before the front speaker was added). I had the same issue with the M07 firmware (the latest you can get over the air), but took it into a Verizon store & updated it to M09. I am now able to pair the two devices.

Garmin 760 - No Voice Directions


Check The system settings, I had to download the newest version of the audio software for the voice to work. The software vanished once and I had to re-download it using the web updater.

Hopefully it will stick around this time.

When I load the new software the voice works.

Garmin 760 phone feature


Did you check the settings for the sound output? If it is set to FM-receiver, you have to tune your radio to the same frequency as the 760 transmitting frequency. To get sound from 760-device, you must deselect the FM-transmitting feature.
(I don´t think this solves your problem. Too obvious.)

GARMIN 660 is working with a battery and also with your car adapter. I don't see any reason why it would not work on battery ?.
