How to pair a iPAQ 214 with an external GPS receiver?


It's pretty easy.
In your iPAQ 214 go on SETTINGS > GPS > and make sure the INCOMING CONNECTIONS are on CHANNEL 6, and for the OUTGOING CONNECTIONS are on CHANNEL 5.
Start the external GPS device, start your Bluetooth connection on your iPAQ and you're ready to go.

Would you like to erase the phonebook entries on your Garmin Nuvi 255W, left over from when you bluetooth paired with your cell phone?

I can help you delete the phone numbers on your Garmin Nuvi 255W.

The phone numbers transferred to your Nuvi are only supposed to be available when your phone is paired to your cell phone. Changing the entry on your phone should allow that entry to show up changed the next time it is paired with the Nuvi. Sometimes, a bluetooth mix up causes entries to be duplicated or entries' phone numbers to get repeated.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data (this hard reset will remove the phonebook info from your nuvi), and then updating your Nuvi' firmware to make sure the nuvi and cell phone bluetooth process runs as smoothly as possible in the future.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Nuvi 255W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 255W WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Just purchased garmin at Best Buy came through in Spanish.How do I change it to English?Thanks Dane


That is too bad. I have had a lot of complaints about BB selling units that have been returned.

Click on Tools (wrench icon)->Settings(wrench icon)->Language(lips)->Select the language you would like.

You can change the text, voice and keyboard layout here.

How do i pair my 265wt with my LG vx9900?


Garmin claims the nuvi 265wt (et al) supports the LG VX9400, which means it's also likely to support the VX990 (but one can't be certain).

1. From the main screen on the nuvi, touch Tools>Settings>Bluetooth.
2. Select Enabled.
3. On the VX9900, do the equivalent to enable its Bluetooth port.
4. Let your phone search for Bluetooth devices.
5. Select the nuvi from the list.
6. Enter the nuvi Bluetooth PIN (1234) into your phone.
You can do steps 4-6 from the nuvi if your phone is already enabled for Bluetooth.
Good luck!
