    tried all the tricks in the book:


    • press reset button

    • start up in maintenance mode and clear all user data

    • Start up in maintenance mode and clear all waypoints



    don't know what else to do.. seems to do this after certain software updates?! currently running version 4.7 of software. Version 4.6 was fine... with version 4.5 the bluetooth kept crashing as well.

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.

Please try to do these steps:
Turn off Garmin Nuvi
Turn "bluetooth" function OFF (on your cell phone)AND turn off your cell phone
Now, turn on Garmin and make sure bluetooth is in enabled mode
Next, turn on your cell phone AND turn "bluetooth" function ON
Wait about 30 seconds or less, your Nuvi should connect now w/ a phone icon.

I understand, it's such a pain, but it works for me everytime I do this.
Remember, Phone must be off and bluetooth is also off before you turn on your Nuvi.
Good luck!!!

OK, all the above work, especially the reset and re-enable. What I find with mine is that when it gets warm (not hot even, just warm) the bluetooth stops working when the unit is turned off and on, ie when one stops the car for a rest stop or to get fuel. I have to mount mine down by the AC vents to keep it cool in the summer.

SOURCE: 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

Bluetooth


GB,

The phone information isn't stored in your Nuvi. Each time it pairs with your phone the call, phonebook and other information is retrieved by the GPS.

To manage your phone activity you have to do it within the cell phone itself. Clear your messages and the next time you pair with the Nuvi you'll notice everything is gone.

Cheers

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... :(
