Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver
My garmin nuvi 760 is stuck on enabling bluetooth screen (it used to work just fine)
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!!
