Gps/cell Phone/bluetooth Question
A question for all you TECHNO WIZARDS out there.
I treated myself to a new VERIZON DROID RAZOR for Fathers Day. It replaced my old DROID. With the old phone I was able to pair it successfully with my Garmin 2820, including loading my directory into the 2820's data base, which in turn was hard wired into the LT's COM System. This of course gave me full phone capability through my wired helmet head set including either placing or answering calls through the use of the touch screen on the Garmin. Much to my disappointment I have not been able to achieve the same success with my new RAZOR. I have two 2820's and have the same result with both. I can achieve an indication on both the phone and the GPS that the phone is PAIRED with the 2820 but it will not transfer the directory from the phone, the message on the Garmin says "PHONE DIRECTORY UNAVAILABLE". Neither will it allow me to answer an incoming call using the touch screen on the GPS. The GARMIN gives me a message that I need to install a microphone before touching "ANSWER" so it no longer recognizes that it's connected to my headset through the COM System.So, anybody have any ideas on what the problem might be and/or how I can fix it? I'm guessing it might be something like an incompatibility between an old and a new version of Bluetooth software but that's only a WAG.
It's certainly not critical that I have this capability as it was not something that I used very much anyway even when it did work with my old phone. It's just that it bugs me that it's something that I used to have available and now I don't.
