Bluetooth Phone Book

 

I am using an LG220C and my 1490LMT. I have successfully paired them. When I touch the phone icon, the next page shows Phone book, Points of Interest, Dial, Call History, Call Home and Voice Dial. Except for Voice Dial, everything works great.
Here is a problem. If I walk away from my truck, the phone icon drops out and does not return until I power the 1490 off, then back on.
The Call History and the Phone Book do not reappear. I don't know how to make the Phone Book stay active.

The two devices haves to be in constant communication with each other for the information to be shown. The nuvi does not store it, nor is it a permanent record.

How best to reconnect

When the connection is broken (walk away from vehicle or start vehicle before phone is in range) what is the best way to reconnect? I've tried turning the GPS off and on, turning Bluetooth off and on, etc. It seems inconsistent.

I usually just turn the BT on the phone off for a minute or two, and then back on again. That said, I'm not sure how long the nuvi 'hunts' for a connection.

That's another reason I stopped connecting through the Nuvi.

1. Low volume
2. Poor integration
3. Failure to recover

Never have a problem with the car unit connecting when leaving and returning but the phone book issue is the same.

Inconsistent

I want the phone book to always appear while I am driving. Of course I want to keep my phone in my pocket while shopping,dining or at home. But it seems that the Phone Book does not always appear when my 1490 boots up when I start the truck. All the other functions work fine on the boot ups. The Phone Book always appears when I disconnect both devices and pair up anew.
I might have to get along with just the Call Home and the Call History icons. For anything else I will pull over anyway.

I find it is a novelty for the same reasons. I use a BT headset that does what I need to do. Speak [dial, James] and it's done.

A work around

I moved the "Intersection" icon down to the second page and have an icon of my gpx file (FAMILY) on the first page of the GO TO screen.
