Question about Garmin Radio Communications

Open Question

Garmin approach x40 - when I switch Bluetooth to 'on' it says 'waiting' but does not go on. I've tried switching it on/off (with the longer button hold down which I think reboots) but no change.

It worked for a day but the Bluetooth dropped off so I removed the device and then added it again. Tried it a second time when Bluetooth went off but now Bluetooth is 'waiting' and I can't re-add the device

SOURCE: I just bought my madcatz headset from the shop.

The power button is not the right button to press.

Here is the steps I take:

1. Power on the headset
2. Have PS3 scan for new devices
3. Hit the tiny button that is next to the volume buttons on the top of the headset.
4. PS3 should recognize "8860" and ask for a passkey which is "0000" by default
5. Paired and ready to go

Pairing the Headset with a Sony Playstation3 Entertainment System:

To pair your [EM-227] Bluetooth Headset with the Sony Playstation3 (PS3), go to the PS3 main menu, scroll to "Settings" and select.

Scroll to "Accessory Settings" and select.

Scroll to "Manage Bluetooth Devices" and select.

The menu will ask: "The Bluetooth device has not been registered. Do you want to register it?"

Select YES.

Put your [EM-227] Bluetooth Headset into discover mode (see X.XX of this manual for instructions on how to get the headset into discover mode).

Select "Start Scanning" from the PS3 menu.

Once the PS3 has discovered the [EM-227] Headset the screen will read "Select the Bluetooth device to register".

Select [EM-227].

The PS3 will ask for a passkey. Enter [0000] then press "OK".

Now press O (the PS3 circle button) to get back to the previous menu.

Scroll to "Audio Device Settings".

Change the "Input Device" to [EM-227].

Note: "Input Device" is the microphone, how others will hear you speak.

By default, the "Output Device" will now switch to [EM-227].

Note: "Output Device" is the audio, how you will hear the PS3 audio and others speaking.

If you would like to hear the PS3 audio and others speaking through your TV or Audio System, scroll to "Output Device" and switch to "System Default Device". If you would like to hear sound through the [EM-227] headset, then leave the "Output Device" setting on [EM-227].

To test your connection, speak into the headset and you will see the bars above the "Microphone Level" moving. If not, repeat the pairing process.

Press "OK" to confirm the new settings. You are now ready to use the [EM-227] Bluetooth Headset with your PS3 Entertainment System.

For further assistance with Bluetooth settings on your PS3 please refer to your PS3 instruction manual.

I have a Vibe bluetooth keyboard folio for ipad mini--can't find ON switch--nothing on bottom right! How do I turn it ON?


The manual for the Vibe iPad Bluetooth Keyboard Folio is completely wrong. To turn on the keyboard, press and hold the button above the word "charge" in the upper right hand of the keyboard. Blue lights beneath the word "power" and beneath the Bluetooth symbol should flash. In order to pair the keyboard, press the same button above "charge" and hold for a shorter time. The light beneath the Bluetooth symbol should flash.

Garmin forerunner 205 will not stay OFF and none of the buttons respond.


Yes you can restore your data from the TC after a hard reset. You have to go thtrough the setup menu like chose which language etc first.
Well I have exactly the same problem as you and a hard reset did not work either ...
Upgrading / downgrading the firmware also did not work.... the thing keeps on switching itself on regardless....
Do you have found out something more in the mean time?

Call waiting and bluetooth


Correct me If i'm wrong but the phone that it's connected to should have call waiting capability, not the headset. with the correct button (usually Flash) (sometimes recall)on the telephone you can activate call waiting. I think it would only be a problem if you need to switch calls without pressing the button on the telephone. (and need to use the button on the earpiece)
try www.plantronics.com

Connecting a Motorola H550 Headset and Envy 2


You will need to reset the bluetooth by... turn on bluetooth (switch towards mouthpiece), then hold both volume buttons along with the call button for 10 seconds. Turn it off (switch back), then switch on again, wait a couple seconds and it should have a full blue light. That means it is in pairing mode, then go to your cell phone in bluetooth settings and add a device, it should come up within no time. Add the device and the passcode is 0000. Enjoy being hands free!!

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.
