Hi Joe,

1. First, you have to turn your bluetooth function (power) on your phone on. See your phone manual.

2. On your Nuvi, press the wrench symbol, then the bluetooth symbol. Press the option to enable bluetooth on your Nuvi. You will know that it is enabled when you see the bluetooth logo at the main menu on your Nuvi.

3. While in the bluetooth menu of your Nuvi, press the ADD button. It will tell you to turn the bluetooth function on your phone, which you should have already done in step #1.

4. Your Nuvi will start searching for your phone and if it finds it, the brand name will show up on your Nuvi's screen. Select the phone model and press OK. It will then tell you the pass key code. On your phone it will ask if you want to pair with your Nuvi. Select yes and enter the pass key code into your phone. This is usually 1234.

That's it. Your Nuvi will say you can now make phone calls. When you unit is paired to your phone and the bluetooth is turned on your phone, you will see a telephone handset at the main menu. Press that and you'll be able to select options to speak the phone number, enter it manually, transfer your phone address book to your Nuvi, etc......

If your phone isn't recognized by your Nuvi, make sure you have the latest bluetooth firmware on your Nuvi. It can be updated with Garmin's webupdater program available on their website.

How do I get a blue tooth program for my garmin nuvi vehicle gps,the booth tooth is built in just no program for it .for me to use the device as a blue tooth other than a gps


Hello,

You will nt be able to sue the nuvi 255w as a handsfree unit, the nuvi 265w is the unit that would support handsfree calling. And unfortunately there are no programs or attachments that can be purchased to make the 255w into a handsfree unit.

Hope this helps!

The blue tooth is always on. Just set your phone on pair and it will find the gps if the gps has bluetooth.

I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.

Loss of function is an indication that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

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
