    I got through to a different support person at Garmin UK

    The problem was known to her - the update software doesn't work with USB's - which since the only way to update is via USB makes this a bit of a doozy.

    Anyway Garmin US are working on it - soltuion soon - perhaps...

Go to the garmin web site,select support,downloads,updates then when prompted to select device choose the card not the unit. ,it can take a while but you should see 'loader' or 'software loading' on your unit worked for me!!

Downloaded and installed Bluetooth firmware update - Won't Pair

I recommend rerunning the webupdate software available below, which was updated March 30, 2010. Run through the update steps again.

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.
After successful webupdating, a hard reset is often helpful at this time, too.

I hope that helps.

You need to have the C510 reset. Their should be a little hole on the front/back/side, stick a pin in it, install the updated, and you will be all set.

If this helps at all, please rate this a FixYa. - Evolution
