    Please be more specific in your question. What version of bluetooth firmware does your unit have? Press the wrench, then the gear symbol, then "about".

Bluetooth icon missing


Possibly does not have bluetooth available on this model. Some Garmins have Bluetooth and some don't. If you have used it before with bluetooth, check your systems settings to see if you have turned off the bluetooth function.

I can't adjust bluetooth,there is no "bluetooth" icon.


The Nuvi 755T does not have bluetooth capability. See this link to see the specifications of the 755T from the Garmin website:

You would have to have a Nuvi 765T to have bluetooth

How can i find out if my new garmin is bluetooth accessible.


  • Press TOOLS (the spanner icon in the bottom right corner of the screen with WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS (the spanner icon)
  • If there's a "Bluetooth" icon on the next screen then it is bluetooth accessible. If there's not then it's not.
You can get a list of garmin satnavs that are bluetooth accessible at www.garmin.com/bluetooth

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

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.

Missing bluetooth software


The 300 does NOT have bluetooth. See this Garmin link:

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=339

The 360 has bluetooth. In order to have bluetooth, you must have the main board inside that has the bluetooth circuitry AND the firmware to support it. The 300 does NOT have the circuitry for bluetooth.
