I have not been able to pair my Zumo 550 and my Blackberry 8830. Initially, the Zumo could see the Blackberry but could not pair. Now neither device can see the other. Zumo has no problem pairing with my J&M bluetooth headset. Any thoughts?

Thanks. Got it. Needed to find the "enable discovery" command on the phone.:thumbup:

Did you get the Zumo to communicate to the headset via the phone?

I can't get my Nuvi to talk to my BlueAnt even via the Blackberry phone.

I would be happy to buy another headset if I could find one that talks to the Nuvi but apparently the Nuvi doesn't have the capability to talk to anything.

The Nuvi and Zumo are completely different units. The Zumo will bridge your phone and your headset, essentially the zumo has 2 bluetooth units in it. The nuvi series don't. AFAIK the nuvi's with BT will only act as a hands free device for your phone, and will not send audio to any bluetooth head set. I think the only hope for getting the audio from your nuvi to your headset may be a bluetooth dongle adaptor that supports A2DP.

That's right. The headset (and I) communicate with the Blackberry through Zumo. Zumo communicates with the phone and runs the sound, etc. to and from the headset. My address book shows up on the Zumo. Voice commands from the Zumo GPS function also go to the headset. And so does audio when running the Zumo MP3 function. It's plenty to keep me fully distracted so I can run off the road or rear-end a semi while phoning, being guided and/or entertained...:bom_laugh4:

I don't know anything about your headset, so I can't say whether it would work with Zumo (although I suspect it would, if it works with the phone).

Well, it may not be the best way, but it works for me- I pair my phone with my zumo, then pair that to my scala rider headphones. That way I'm able to listen to music from the phone, accept calls, and hear the annoying garmin lady tell me which lane to get into. When a call comes in, the number (or id I've assigned) comes up on the zumo's screen with little decline? or answer? buttons.
The phone resides in my pocket, or sometimes in my tank bag. I've got mine set up to link to each other automatically when both the phone and the garmin are on.
Expensive combo, but altho I've never used the feature, the garmin has the phone numbers for many poi's built in and the capability for me to call ahead with the push of a button to find out if a place is open, or make hotel reservations or find out hours or whatever.
Hope that answers...
