When I got my new Nuvi 680, I figured out a way to import my cell phonebook to it by using bluetooth and sending via vcard....one at a time. The problem is, I added a number I didn't really want into the Nuvi phonebook and I can't find a way to delete it. Am I stuck with the numbers that I added, forever?..lol.
Like you probably know, your phonebook CAME from your cellular.
Just delete the number from your cellular and he will disappear from the GPS the next time you will MAKE a new Bluetooth connection.Desactivate bluetooth and start the new connection process. The GPS phonebook will now use the new list you have into your cellular. Any cellular who will connect to your NUVI will insert their phonebook.
But you can add or delete PHONE numbers from PHONEBOOK who was ADD manually into your NUVI.
I had a similar problem with my Nuvi 660 in that I could not delete numbers that I sent one - by - one to the GPS from my phone (a HP IPAQ).
Unlike phones that automatically synchronize the entire book with the GPS (like my new(er) Cingular 8525), those phones that are not 100% compatible with the GPS must beam the numbers you want individually. You can delete those numbers, but to do so you must reset your device. That means that you lose ALL the numbers you have entered (individually) AND all your waypoints and POIs.
How much does it hurt to keep the one number you inadvertently sent to the 680? It's your call, but if it were me, and I had beamed a BUNCH of numbers over, I'd live with the one "bad" one.
Another choice is to get a new phone that automatically synchronizes the entire phone book with the GPS when they are paired and connected via bluetooth.
I was thinking the same as you..why bother with one bad number? I just wanted to confirm if there was another way I was unaware of. Thank you so much for your response. It was helpful.
The issue with Gerry's phone/Nuvi combination is that the contacts in the phone are not synchronizing automatically with the Nuvi. When the phone is paired with the GPS, nothing happens. I'm confident about this because the same thing happened with my IPAQ and my 660. I had to manually beam each contact I wanted to move from the phone/PDA to the GPS. Once beamed, the only way to remove is to reset the GPS and add in everything all over again.
Your solution works with my current phone as it synchronizes the contacts (as well as the phone call status - i.e. last dialed, last received, and missed) on each Bluetooth connection. This does not work with the IPAQ and apparently Gerry's phone.
