Pairing the Garmin Nuvi 660 with my Verizon LG Voyager
I am thinking about buying the Garmin Nuvi 660 for my car and would like to know if I will be able to pair it up with my cell phone, Verizon LG Voyager. I have heard of people having problems with connecting the two. And the Voyager is not listed as a compatible phone on Garmin's compatibility list. If I buy it, will I be able to pair it up? Because I will have no clue on how to troubleshoot/fix it if it doesn't pair up when I first try to use it.
Any recommendations and/or help would be very much appreciated!

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.
I also have the 760 & the first gen Boulder (before the front
speaker was added). I had the same issue with the M07 firmware (the
latest you can get over the air), but took it into a Verizon store
& updated it to M09. I am now able to pair the two devices.
As far as I know you can only buy maps from Garmin, or a Garmin retailer. The 660 should have all the maps for North America already loaded in it.
You can purchase Points of Interest (POI) databases from a variety of sources. Just google POI. These are not maps but they are adresses for points of interest such as restaurants, special services, and even speed trap cameras.
