Garmin 660 gps Bluetooth problem

Ok, i've tried everthing to fix my problem including resetting my device, deleting and setting up the bluetooth config, also downloading and installing the FileBlueTooth.zip file to no avail.
Here is my problem: It was all working 2 days after i brought it and configured it. Could see all my contacts, txt messages and other stuff, make calls through the gps to my mobile (Sony Ericsson W850i)
How, when I start the phone and the 660 it detects and connects, I can see my txts and contacts on the 660 via bluetooth to my mobile, but the Bluetooth disconnects after 10secs on the 660. When I enable bluetooth on the 660 it just sits there with the message Enabling Bluetooth.
I've updated the software from Garmin including the Bluetooth patch...
Any Ideas!!!
Anthony My garmin was working fine and while driving, it started an Bluetooth update and stopped at 86%. Since then, no way to use Bluetooth.
I update the software from Webupdate. I reloaded the programe for C550 (not the flash) still not working. I reset the unit, removing all personal information. Still Bluetooth stays in disable mode.

Bluetooth connetion with Verizon Treo 700P


Looks like your saying you've updated your n?vi 660 to software(firmware) version 2.0, if so you're moving in the right direction. Unfortunately the n?vi 660 does support the Treo 700P but only seems to support the 'Hands-free' BlueTooth profile and this is often problematical as is the 'headset' profile with some device combinations, that's precisely why many phones and devices now support both profiles. Check the pairing information to see if you're using 'headset' or 'Hands-free', whatever you're using delete the pairing on both devices and see if they will let you pair in the other profile. Your Treo 700P is made by PalmOne (www.palm.com) so you may want to check for software updates from them. This kind of problem is down to the lack of a solid standard for BlueTooth communications and you will often find that settings that work for one combination of devices are unstable with another. Post back if this doesn't help or if you need us to clarify anything.

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... :(

Blue tooth phonebook


The unit does not save the phone book, it loads it each time your bluetooth phone is in contact with it. To verify this, turn off the bluetooth phone, then try to access the phone book in the GPS unit. It should not come up.

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.
