N8 Bluetooth Paired Devices problem

whenever i go into the bluetooth settings on my nokia n8 and pair my gps (holux m-1000) it says it has succesffully paired the device.

 

i have changed the positioning settings to enable bluetooth gps. yet whenever i open maps it requests to repair with my gps and deletes the previous pairing. i find this rather annoying. how can i make the device save the paired settings for the bluetooth gps unit.

Re: N8 Bluetooth Paired Devices problem

Hi,

I have similar problem with my GPS QStarz BT-Q1000 and my Nokia N8, when i paired them:

Nokia N8 ask me code so i put 0000, after that N8 tell it's ok it's paired but i see on my GPS it's not (on my GPS when put on the light is on but not flash and when it's connected it flashes)

 

I hope the next firmware will make all good, it's very usefull for for baterry to have external GPS

 

 

PS: how disable completly Wifi??? when i disconnect it reconnect in the same sec!!!

 

Best Regards

Hi Phil8811

 

Please be aware that since OVI Maps v3.03 the use of an Bluetooth GPS receiver is no longer officially supported by Nokia unfortunately.

Re: N8 Bluetooth Paired Devices problem

I have similar problems with my N8 and Sygic, my bluetooth device will refuse to connect when asked for, sometimes it works/connects/gets paired, then impossible to connect or find.

Bluetooth is a Haicom. Same bluetooth issues then on my 6800, never problems with BT device on N81 or XM 5800. allready on last firmware update. When i first paired my BT device it worked for about a week, then the BT connection problems started (no updates in between).

Re: N8 Bluetooth Paired Devices problem

Have just got an N8 and am trying to Bluetooth with my Mac Book Pro. The N8 'sees' the computer but cannot connect. The computer does not 'see' the N8. Any ideas?

Welcome to the forum!

 

Is your N8 running PR1.0 or PR1.1 key in *#0000# on dialler?

 

That said no issues with N8 Bluetooth connectivity with Mac Mini OSX 10.6.6, did you initiate pairing from Mac > set up bluetooth device whilst N8 searching for new device?

Re: N8 Bluetooth Paired Devices problem

I have a nokia 5230 and, in my car, a sony bluetooth stereo. The car automatically picks up my phone and displays the relevant info on the screen. It also answers my phone by a simple push of a button on the radio (nice big button too). Never had a problem as long as I leave the bluetooth setting in the phone switched to on. Sound quality too is brillinat - even when at spped on a Mway.

Pleased to here it, but can't quite see the relevance in this thread about N8 bluetooth issues.

Re: N8 Bluetooth Paired Devices problem

i am on my second N8 (first failed) and use an Avantalk car kit.  the kit supports simulataneous connection to 2 phones when it is in dual mode.

 

in car i used to connect my blackberry (work) and n8 (personal).  since changing phone i have pairing & connection problems.  Blackberry senses avantalk and connects but nokia won't.  i have to switch off blackberry, restart avantalk, out into pairing mode and pair n8.  every time i have to pair phone and the little blue symbol next to device name in device list is missing.

 

when first pairing blackberry for first time it asked for avantalk passcode.  n8 never has although it goes through other authorisation routines such as "Do you want to automatically allow.......ect"

 

Any ideas?  Perhaps i will go back to HTC

Re: N8 Bluetooth Paired Devices problem

Hi,

I have stranger problem. I can't to pair two Nokia N8 to send pictures by bluetooth. Bluetooth is on and visible on both phones. What's going on? Nokia bluetooth is not compatibile itself or I have made some mistake?
