    Thanks for the suggestion. After a five e-mail dialog and four potential solutions, the problem was finally resolved by replacing the bluetooth file with another version.

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... :(

Call Garmin tech support (US Toll Free: 1-800-800-1020 - Monday - Friday: 8 am - 7 pm) and tell them your Nuvi is freezing on the "enabling bluetooth" screnn, and that you need the latest .GCD file.

They'll email you a file: 006B055301.GCD with the following directions:

If you have a unit where the Bluetooth is disabled and when you attempt to enable it gets stuck on the “Enabling Bluetooth” message please follow the steps below.

1) Connect the Nuvi to your computer.
2) Find you’re My Computer icon and double click on it or you may find it in you Start menu and click on it.
3) Double click on the Nuvi() drive listed under devices with removable storage.
4) Double click on the Garmin folder.
5) Double click RemoteSW folder.
6) Copy and paste the attached file into the folder.
7) Close out the folder and safely disconnect the Nuvi from the computer.

After you have completed this, the Nuvi should be working normally.


I used WebUpdater to put the newest firmware on my unit before I did the above steps. Immediately after I rebooted, the unit automatically updated the bluetooth software on its own (however that might have been a left over from me trying to do it via the bluetooth reset menu you get to by pressing the speedometer icon for ~5 secs).

Everything works great now!!

Garmin nuvi 760 ...updating bluetooth firmware


You have a software problem with your NUVI . I recommend you to reset [ restoring default factory settings ] your NUVI

To reset your NUVI , please follow one of these procedures :

1:Turn the Nuvi on.

2:Touch the tools icon on the main screen. The tools icon is represented by a wrench surrounded by a blue circle.


3:Touch the "Settings" icon which appears as a wrench.

4:Push the "Restore" button at the bottom of the screen. A confirmation message will appear asking to confirm restoring the Nuvi to factory settings. Push yes to restore the factory settings
............................................................................................
Try this for hard reset .

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen [ Don't let go ] , and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press “Yes” to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

After that you can try again with updating .

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE !

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 - No Voice Directions


Check The system settings, I had to download the newest version of the audio software for the voice to work. The software vanished once and I had to re-download it using the web updater.

Hopefully it will stick around this time.

When I load the new software the voice works.
