    You need to connect your Nuvi to your PC via a USB cable, download Garmin's webupdater and reflash the system O/S & bluetooth on your 660. The latest version is v3.4. If you don't know how to do this, I can help you with it. I've done it hundreds of times.

Hi i have a u135 and it hasbuilt in blue tooth but i donot know how to activate could u help


Not sure if this will work for your model but its worth a try. Copied from MSI support faq website
You have to press the WLAN button located right next to the power button in order to enable/disable the Bluetooth function. Press WLAN button once, Enable WLAN. Press WLAN button twice, Enable Bluetooth. Press WLAN button thrice, Enable both WLAN and Bluetooth. Press WLAN button four times, Disable both WLAN and Bluetooth.

The bluetooth turns on using FN + F11 it should turn the wireless too but doesn't MSI U100


As per the manual the FN and F11 keys turn on both Bluetooth and Wireless so you need to try it will turn bluetooth and then it will turn on wireless, you can check them by LEDS

Press and hold the Fn button, and then press the F11 button
repeatedly to enable or disable the Wireless LAN or Bluetooth function
recurrently.

Wireless LAN and Bluetooth:
�� Wireless LAN LED indicator glows green when Wireless LAN function is
enabled.
�� Bluetooth LED indicator glows blue when Bluetooth function is enabled.
�� Both LED indicators glow green and blue at the same time when both
functions are enabled.
�� Both LED indicators go out when both functions are disabled.
�� Note: For flight safety consideration, make sure these two LED indicators
go out when you are in flight.

Let me know if you are able to turn the wireless on

Also i will suggest you check in device manager that you wireless adapter is enabled

Ecap not working after updating bios


On my Eee PC updating the BIOS can turn off the Ecap, webcam, WLAN, and Bluetooth.

(Ecap gives the message "driver not found".)

The systems tray contains an applet for changing the screen resolution and enabling/disabling the webcam, WLAN, and Bluetooth.

By disabling, then re-enabling, the webcam life returns to Ecap.

How do I start bluetooth on the qosmio g25-av13?


Try the ff:

1. Are you also using a wireless internet? If you are and you cannot also connect on wireless, make sure that the wireless is enabled on your laptop. On the left side of the laptop there is a on/off switch push the switch to on. (beside the usb port).

2. if it is already on, make sure that the bluetooth is enabled also, you can check it on control panel, system, hardware, device manager, bluetooth, right click on bluetooth driver, if you see enable bluetooth click on it, if you see"disable bluetooth" that means it is already enabled.

3. If the above is already configured, lastly, look for the bluetooth icon (bluetooth manager) on the lower part of the screen on the taskbar/tray if you see the bluetooth icon, right-click on it then click "Enable Bluetooth Radio". Now, if there is no bluetooth icon on the tray at the lower right of the screen, go to Start, Toshiba, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Settings, inside the Bluetooth SEttings, click on Bluetooth, Options, CLick on Enable Bluetooth Power, also, inside the Tray Icon (still inside Bluetooth Settings) select an icon so you can always see the status of your bluetooth on the Tray and you don;t need to do and check everything everytime you cannot connect via Bluetooth.

Hope this helps.

Garmin 760 is stuck on enabling bluetooth


Seems they have been having the identical problem with the 660
Here's a link to the solutions..
http://www.fixya.com/support/t179960-garmin_nuvi_660_bluetooth

The 2 best suggested fixes were probably that you need to reset the garmin ( instructions at link)
Or update the bluetooth software ( Probably the best solution)

Sad that the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing but this is what happens when you have a marketing company in one country having their product made in another... :(
