Does it pick up any at all? you need 3 to get a fixed posistion. If you see one or two picking up then it may be your location. Also try doing a firmware update, I have seen that fix this problem on other units.

I FOUND BLUETOOTH ON MY NUVI1350LMT BUT CANT GET ENABLE OR DISABLE MODE


In the Nuvi 1300 Bluetooth controls can be found in Tools - Settings - Bluetooth.

In this screen the Bluetooth communication mode can be switched on/off by pressing on the Bluetooth menu entry. Press Off and Save to store this setting.

Also existing (paired) connections with a cellphone can be dropped by pressing the phone menu entry and press the delete button.

Bluetooth icon missing


The Nuvi 750 does NOT include bluetooth capability. I don't know what you saw, or what you think you saw, but Garmin's website is very clear on this issue. NO BLUETOOTH WITH THE NUVI 750

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.
