The version which includes Garmin USB receiver does not include a product key. The product key is not needed for Garmin Mobile PC to function with the included GPS receiver. The software-only version of Garmin Mobile PC does include a product key (on the inside of the DVD case, on a big green sticker). The product key enables the program to be used with any 3rd party GPS receiver supporting NMEA standard. Users of Garmin Mobile PC who wish to use the software with a 'normal' GPS receiver, would need to obtain a product key to enable non-Garmin GPS receivers to function with the program. The only way to obtain a product key is by purchasing the program.To unlock maps for the software version of Mobile PC using the Unlock Wizard in MapSource; Note the Software Unit ID found under Settings - About in Mobile PC. Use that number for the serial number requested by the Unlock Wizard.

My Bluetooth interation suddenly stopped working


Many problems related to pairing can be corrected by verifying that the latest firmware is loaded to the GPS unit and the phone. To update the firmware on the GPS, please use the WebUpdater program. To make sure the phone has the latest firmware updates, please contact the phone service provider for more information.
One additional tip is to always pair the phone with the GPS from the phone itself. Do not attempt to pair to the phone from the GPS unit.

I am trying to connnect to bluetooth but the screen is stuck on enabling bluetooth


Go to http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/
click the "download the latest version of WebUpdater software" link
run and install the program
connect the gps to your computer
Follow the instructions on the updater program and when you get to the part that shows the updates you can get there should be one to select that is a Bluetooth update. Once the update is done the next time you turn it on, it will say that it is loading the updates. Hope this helps, I tried to explain it as best as I could.

Garmin will work with ANY windows mobile device with built in GPS and or a bluetooth receiver. But you have to have the correct software there are 2 versions both will install but only one will work with your model phone for older model phones use version 4.10 or lower for newer model phones use version 5.0 or higher.

Let windows manage your GPS ports do not try to set it manually. If you have a GPS fix option...go out side where you can get a satellite fix easily...launch your GPS fix program...thenlaunch Garmin. It should connect and you will have to do this only once. I know from experience and I've use this on a T-Mobile Dash with a bluetooh adapter with no issues. I'd try a different receiver preferably any Pharos GPS receiver.
