Garmin 760 Blutooth pairing

Have a Garmin 760 tried to pair to my Verizon GZ one Boulder cell phone, both devices find each other but when asked to pair the two they will not. I upgraded the firmware on both devices, still wont work. Tried my wifes LG bluetooth with the 760 it will not pair either.
Any Ideas?

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.

Bluetooth connetion with Verizon Treo 700P


Looks like your saying you've updated your n?vi 660 to software(firmware) version 2.0, if so you're moving in the right direction. Unfortunately the n?vi 660 does support the Treo 700P but only seems to support the 'Hands-free' BlueTooth profile and this is often problematical as is the 'headset' profile with some device combinations, that's precisely why many phones and devices now support both profiles. Check the pairing information to see if you're using 'headset' or 'Hands-free', whatever you're using delete the pairing on both devices and see if they will let you pair in the other profile. Your Treo 700P is made by PalmOne (www.palm.com) so you may want to check for software updates from them. This kind of problem is down to the lack of a solid standard for BlueTooth communications and you will often find that settings that work for one combination of devices are unstable with another. Post back if this doesn't help or if you need us to clarify anything.

Garmin nuvi 760 has NO sound.....


This is a common problem with the Garmin units. Try plugging in a pair of headphones into the headphone jack. You will probably get sound there. When yuou do it will confirm that the speaker itself in the unit has failed. ( again, this is common with the Garmin brand). I recommend a quality post warranty repair company, such as www.sharcnet-usa.com , their repairs are fast and inexpensive.

Hope this helps.

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 nuvi 680 unable activate bluetooth


I did the following steps and my Nuvi 680 bluetooth is working good now.
Please try these:

Thank you for contacting Garmin International, I am sorry that you are having this issue. You may need to reset your
BlueTooth:
1) From the Nuvi main "Where To?" screen, tap "View map"
2) On the map screen, tap the "speed" indicator in the lower left corner of the screen.
3) On the next screen, there is a large round speedometer (mph) near the top center of the screen. Press and hold on the center of the speedometer until the screen changes to a diagnostic mode that says "Shutdowns" at the top.
4) Press "Next"at the bottom of the screen repetitively until you come to a screen that says "Bluetooth statues" at the top...
5) On the Bluetooth Statues screen, press "Updt PR" button in the lower right corner. The screen should show "Do you really want to update the Bluetooth firmware?"... Press "yes"... Let the unit sit for several minutes. It should show "Updating Bluetooth on the screen. When it is complete, it will return to the "Bluetooth Statues screen.... Press "Quit" in the lower left corner... Then return to the main "Where To?"
screen and try enabling and paring the Bluetooth again?.
Additionally, it is best to pair the devices from the cell phones menus and pairing procedures, instead of from the Garmin device......
Note: before re-pairing the Nuvi to your cell phone, make sure you remove the nuvi device fr your cell phone first, then add device. If your nuvi bluetooth still fails after you do this step, then your nuvi bluetooth file maybe corrupted. You will need to download this file and reinstall it to your Nuvi
