Re: Bluetooth Connectivity

Is it possible that, of your three devices, the Garmin is the only one which sends data as soon as it is turned on, not waiting for a command or interrogation from the PC?

If so, the PC could be identifying the data stream as a serial mouse. Does the cursor jump around when the Garmin connection is not working?

I've resolved these cases on the past by having the problem manifest itself, then stop the data (to get control of the cursor), go into device manager, find and disable the bogus serial mouse.
