I got n97mini, it keep ask me to pair with a bluetooth gps device


Your Garmin has Bluetooth handsfree activated, it's nothing to do with navigation. All that's happening is that it's sensing that your n97 has Bluetooth turned on and so your Garmin is asking whether you wish to pair the devices.

Paired or not, your Garmin still uses it's own internal GPS navigation and does not utilise the navigation built into your n97.

If you already use your own preferred handsfree device then just go into the Garmin's menu to turn off Bluetooth. If you don't already have handsfree then I strongly suggest that you pair your phone to the Garmin and use the facility to remain safe and legal.

If you wish to disable Bluetooth on the Garmin then on most models, starting from the homepage, you press "tools", "settings", "Bluetooth" and then click on "Bluutooth enabled" and toggle it to "disabled".

I hope that this answers your question, you can let me know by rating my answer. If not then please add a comment instead to more clearly explain what your problem is and I will try again.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 680 I would like to use it as a hands off cell phone in my vechile. I no little about blue tooth. How do I go about getting my cell phone to work with my Garmin. Thanks Joe


Hi Joe,

1. First, you have to turn your bluetooth function (power) on your phone on. See your phone manual.

2. On your Nuvi, press the wrench symbol, then the bluetooth symbol. Press the option to enable bluetooth on your Nuvi. You will know that it is enabled when you see the bluetooth logo at the main menu on your Nuvi.

3. While in the bluetooth menu of your Nuvi, press the ADD button. It will tell you to turn the bluetooth function on your phone, which you should have already done in step #1.

4. Your Nuvi will start searching for your phone and if it finds it, the brand name will show up on your Nuvi's screen. Select the phone model and press OK. It will then tell you the pass key code. On your phone it will ask if you want to pair with your Nuvi. Select yes and enter the pass key code into your phone. This is usually 1234.

That's it. Your Nuvi will say you can now make phone calls. When you unit is paired to your phone and the bluetooth is turned on your phone, you will see a telephone handset at the main menu. Press that and you'll be able to select options to speak the phone number, enter it manually, transfer your phone address book to your Nuvi, etc......

If your phone isn't recognized by your Nuvi, make sure you have the latest bluetooth firmware on your Nuvi. It can be updated with Garmin's webupdater program available on their website.

Garmin nui 360


Please tell me what the version of bluetooth firmware is showing up in your unit. You can access this by pressing the wrench symbol, then the gear symbol, then "about". The latest bluetooth version is v3.4. If it shows up as 0.0, then you need to reflash the bluetooth firmware.

One note: Everytime you update the bluetooth firmware, it erases your pairing information with your phone, so you will have to re-pair your phone with your Nuvi.

Best wishes,

Dont have cell phone icon anymore on nuvi 360


Have you tried to re-pair it with your phone? What does the bluetooth firmware version show up as on your Nuvi? If it says 0.0, you need to reflash the bluetooth firmware. You can find the firmware version by selecting the wrench icon, then sekect the gear symbol and then select "About". Use Garmin's webupdater and connect your Nuvi to the PC and let the webupdater reflash yoour Nuvi. Garmin just updated the bluetooth firmware on November of 08 to v3.4 so you would want to do it anyway. When you reflash, you have to repair the phone to the Nuvi because the reflash erases your phone setup.

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.

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
