Hello,

 

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd like to help you with your iPhone problem but first I'm going to need some more information. You say you're trying to sync your iPhone with your GPS but I'm not sure why. Can you please clarify the reason, and what goal you are trying to achieve with this? Also please let me know what model of iPhone you have and the firmware version it is running, and what model of GPS you have. Thanks.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
It is a brand new iPhone 16 GB and the GPS is a Garmin Nuvi and the reason I want them to sync is so that I can use the phone in the car hands free and talk through the gps like I have been doing with all my previous phones and they normally just pick up the Garmin even other people get in the car and the Garmin will pick them up but at the moment the Garmin does not even reconise that the iPhone is there.
Expert:  Scott, The Computer Man replied 4 years ago.

Thanks I understand what you are trying to do now. In order for the Garmin to work with the iPhone the phone needs to be paired with the Garmin. In order to do this the iPhone needs to be set to "Discoverable" mode in order for the Garmin to pair with it. Once the 2 units are paired it will always automatically detect the iPhone when it comes in close proximity with it.

 

Here are the instructions for putting your iPhone into discoverable mode, then you can execute the pairing process on the Garmin:

 

1) Turn the iPhone on

2) Launch Settings

3) Choose "General"

4) Choose "Bluetooth"

5) Make sure Bluetooth is set to "On"

6) If it is then turn it to "Off" wait 10 seconds and turn it back "On"

7) Now you can go to the Garmin and follow their directions for pairing

 

Let me know if you have any further questions and please don't forget to click the green "Accept Answer" button so that I may be paid for my service. Thank you.

 

-Scott

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
