    I have the same problem since carrying out software upgrade I have contacted Garmin Support but everyone I have spoken to is telling me to do the same thing over, i have noticed that the other tabs within the bluetooth are not highlighted. when connecting nuvi 310 to computer what files should i look for to see if i still have the bluetooth function, my version says sw 0.00 what does this mean. they also told me to delete file remote sw than load one they sent, and now i have two bluetooth logos on my main screen. they have also indicated that to have repair it will cost £101.00 and it was their update that has caused this. can anyone help please

Go to http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/
click the "download the latest version of WebUpdater software" link
run and install the program
connect the gps to your computer
Follow the instructions on the updater program and when you get to the part that shows the updates you can get there should be one to select that is a Bluetooth update. Once the update is done the next time you turn it on, it will say that it is loading the updates. Hope this helps, I tried to explain it as best as I could.

Remove bluetooth paired devices?


On the paired device list screen, just wait it out for about 10 minutes or so and the list of devices will eventually become enabled (device names will turn from being greyed out to white). You can then select a device and then hit the remove button. After that, as you go back to the main Bluetooth setup screen, you may notice that the register new device button is stilled greyed out. Just wait a little bit and that should become enabled too. Good luck. I found all this out by accident as I was troubleshooting the same problem on my unit.

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!

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..
http://www.fixya.com/support/t179960-garmin_nuvi_660_bluetooth

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... :(

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.
