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.

You need to pair with the gps first before you can use as handsfree. Turn on BT in your iphone and start to pair with the gps, there may be a code showing at the gps screen and then type the code on your phone, then they paired which means you can start to use it. Good luck.

The 1350T model does not have bluetooth. It is mentioned in the manual because the same manual is used for all the 1300 series nuvis. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Hello,

The nuvi 3790T shouldnt have any issues with your phone, try your phones bluetooth setting to see if the nuvi is set as its handsfree device. Also make sure the phone has enough power to use bluetooth, when the battery is low bluetooth wont work.

Hope this helps!

I wish to erase phone numbers, transferred from my cell phone to my Garmin 265WT when pairing the phone to the Garmin. These phone numbers came from my cell phone and I cannot remember who is associated...


I can help you with the phone numbers on your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

The phone numbers transferred to your Nuvi are only supposed to be available when your phone is paired to your cell phone. Changing the entry on your phone should allow that entry to show up changed the next time it is paired with the Nuvi. Sometimes, a bluetooth mix up causes entries to be duplicated or entries' phone numbers to get repeated.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data (this hard reset will remove the phonebook info from your nuvi), and then updating your Nuvi' firmware to make sure the nuvi and cell phone bluetooth process runs as smoothly as possible in the future.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

What isthe microphone on my garmin nuvi 205 for if it doesn't have voice activation or bluetooth?


Hi, The manual for your Garmin covers quite a few models with differing features. As the 205 is the entry level unit for the range, it is very likely that the microphone is not even installed. The microphone is only used for the handsfree feature.
