    Just bought new Garmin Nuvi 660. Successfully paired it with Blackberry 8830 (World Edition). It worked fine for a few days until yesterday when it would connect for a few seconds, but then drop the phone connection. Can't get it to work. Tried deleting pairing, then redoing, disabling encryption, deleting other paired devices on the Blackberry, and playing with Garmin bluetooth troubleshooting. Help!

    I have a Garmin StreetPilot c580 and Blackberry 8830. The first day I enabled Bluetooth it worked fine. Since then, it cannot hold a connection for more than a few seconds.

    My husband bought the c550 and paired with iphone no problem, bought me one a week later, it pairs with my blackberry for 10 sec. I am so frustrated!

    The best solution is to update your software on the Garmin. Once I did that the problem went away. Just go to mygarmin.com, register and update.

I got this finally fixed by updating the software. Goto http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp and follow the instructions. But it is important that you don't only update the Garmin software but also the GPS software (or firmware). After doing this, I couldn't make it fail anymore. Good luck!

The problem is caused when the phone book tries to transfer over. I haven't pinpointed the problem just yet, but it seems that this is the cause.Turn off the address book forwarding and it should work!!

My Blackberry 8310 finds the Parrot 3000 (bluetooth) device, but does not ask for the password, and therefor, cannot connect. How do I get these two to mate? (kidding--I mean pair)


The generic PIN (Which is what I'm guessing you need) for most bluetooth devices is either 0000, or 1234. Please try those and see if that solves your problem.

Blackberry 8310 Bluetooth device no services


I just experieiced this for the second time on my 8320 using a plantronics 510 bluetooth. The solution was to take the battery adn SIM card out of the phoine and leave it out for a full minute. It appears that the phone needs to be rebooted once in a while. I suspect Bill Gates designed some of the internal code.
