Question about Palm Tungsten T3 Handheld

1 Answer

Lost Memory I recently bought a Garmin Nuvi 360 and paired it with my Motorola V635 phone. My phonebook was transported to the Nuvi & everything seemed to be okay. I was ecstatic! I also paired the Nuvi with my Tungsten T3 & transported some of my Contacts from the Tungsten to the Nuvi. I used the Tungsten later that day & everything seemed to be okay. The next day I tried to turn on my Tungsten & it won't come on! I charged it with my travel charger & it later came on. However, all the messages on the screen guided me through setup (like I was using it for the first time)! All my info I collected for the past 2 years seemed to have disappeared! I had sync'ed my Tungsten with my computer before pairing with the Nuvi, but when I accessed my files on the computer & made indepth checks I found that the majority of my applications weren't updated because my Palm Desktop was set up to "Do Nothing" for most of the applications when sync'ing (this action was selected after my very first sync! - and was set up for me by someone else since @ that time was wasn't familiar with most of the technical stuff). I remember when inputting some of my info I'm sometimes asked if I want it "archived". Is there any chance that my old info still exists in an archive somewhere? If so, how can I go about retrieving it. If there's anyone out there who really knows how I can solve this problem & retrieve my info PLEASE PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I'M DESPERATE

Curiously, my setup is also set to "do nothing" for some apps... but changes on the Palm for those apps are saved to the PC, as they show up in Palm Desktop.

First thing to do is BACK UP YOUR "GOOD" BACKUP DATA ON THE PC. It is easy to accidentally lose everything there, and they you're screwed. Default location is C:\Program Files\PalmOne\XXXXXX, where XXXXXX is the first six letters of your Palm's User ID.

Next thing: Check in PD; are your contacts there? If so, they should reappear on your Palm after a hard reset.

If that does not work, set the conduits to "synchronize" and try again.

Sadly, too many people find out about backups the hard way.

You may have to allow access from your bluetooth to your phone via your buetooth menu on you garmin. I know I did that with my mortorla phone and garmin. I hope this helps. If not I will try to get mine to work. I use a motorola blue tooth car speaker it has better noise canceling and reception.

I wish to erase phone numbers, transferred from my cell phone to my Garmin 265WT when pairing the phone to the Garmin. These phone numbers came from my cell phone and I cannot remember who is associated...

I can help you with the phone numbers on your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

The phone numbers transferred to your Nuvi are only supposed to be available when your phone is paired to your cell phone. Changing the entry on your phone should allow that entry to show up changed the next time it is paired with the Nuvi. Sometimes, a bluetooth mix up causes entries to be duplicated or entries' phone numbers to get repeated.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data (this hard reset will remove the phonebook info from your nuvi), and then updating your Nuvi' firmware to make sure the nuvi and cell phone bluetooth process runs as smoothly as possible in the future.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Garmin nui 360

Please tell me what the version of bluetooth firmware is showing up in your unit. You can access this by pressing the wrench symbol, then the gear symbol, then "about". The latest bluetooth version is v3.4. If it shows up as 0.0, then you need to reflash the bluetooth firmware.

One note: Everytime you update the bluetooth firmware, it erases your pairing information with your phone, so you will have to re-pair your phone with your Nuvi.

Best wishes,

Bluetooth

GB,

The phone information isn't stored in your Nuvi. Each time it pairs with your phone the call, phonebook and other information is retrieved by the GPS.

To manage your phone activity you have to do it within the cell phone itself. Clear your messages and the next time you pair with the Nuvi you'll notice everything is gone.

Cheers
