Default Garmin Nuvi 360 & BB 8700

Mods, if this belongs in BT Forum, please move.

After some difficulty I was able to successfully pair my 8700c with my Nuvi 360 for phone calls and for address book transfer. I thought I might post the tricks to making this work here for others.

1) Install BBOS 4.2
2) You must remove ALL groups from your address book. Apparently groups confuse the Bluetooth transfer and cause java errors to be displayed. This took me quite a while to find, searching on-line.
3) The Nuvi will ONLY hold 200 names & phone numbers. If your address book has more than 200 entries, you will need to use the "Selected Categories Only" option in Bluetooth options. If the category you choose has more than 200 entries, only the first 200 will transfer. I got this from Garmin directly and they have numerous requests to increase the capacity with future software updates.

Using the three tips above you should have a painless experience using your Nuvi 360 as a hands free BT speaker phone in your car. It even automatically interrupts the mp3 playback for a phone call.

Enjoy!
