    I have exactly the same problem with my Bluetooth freezing when i try to enable it. Restarting it clears it but I'm left unable to use Bluetooth anymore.

    Does anyone have a solution to this?

    My bluetooth worked fine with my Verizon LG cell phone, but the sound quality was horrible. Now, I can't get it to pair w/ the phone, so I switched to my earpiece for the day.

    The Garmin is flashing "phone disconnected" every 15 seconds or so and interupts everything else.

    I reset the Nuvi, no difference.

    Would appreciate some help. Thanks

I FOUND BLUETOOTH ON MY NUVI1350LMT BUT CANT GET ENABLE OR DISABLE MODE


In the Nuvi 1300 Bluetooth controls can be found in Tools - Settings - Bluetooth.

In this screen the Bluetooth communication mode can be switched on/off by pressing on the Bluetooth menu entry. Press Off and Save to store this setting.

Also existing (paired) connections with a cellphone can be dropped by pressing the phone menu entry and press the delete button.

Garmin 760 - No Voice Directions


Go back into your tools and settings and re select the voice of american jack and see if it comes back on.
I lost the voice 2 days ago while on a trip from tenn. to florida and this fixed it. we never shut off the voice but somehow while using bluetooth or FM trans it shut off voice transmiting.

Unit locks out fine blue line appears have to remove batt and then turns on


Disable the WAAS on your unit. A new satellite was launched earlier this year and is causing a problem. This is why Garmin issued a new software update version 3.9.
Menu > Setup > System... scroll down to WAAS and disable it. This should get your unit working again but with less accuracy.

Update the software to version 3.9 and leave for about 20 minutes in open area (clear view of sky) so your unit can download the full almanac. This should permanently fix your problem. Once you finish upgrading, go back and enable the WAAS.

to mhotz: You can purchase serial2USB connectors at a computer store. You will have to install the drivers which come with it before it will work. That should solve your upgrade problem.

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..

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... :(
