I have just bought a Scala G4 with the intention of pairing it to my Garmin Nuvi 760. That was the plan.......needless to say it dont work!

When trying to pair the Scala and Nuvi I get a message in the Nuvi saying it cant connect to the mobile phone (eh?!?). I have since learned that the Scala and Garmin Nuvi 760 dont pair.

I have a SE Xperia Arc mobile phone and when paired to the Garmin it will not show text messages received on screen. Apparently the Garmin isnt too keen on the SE Xperia either! It works fine with an old Nokia 6310i. The Garmin is clearly a fussy bugga!!

So, which satnav will pair and work (offering all the spec) with both my Scala G4 and the SE Arc?

Grateful for any help on this. Smile

Just received an email from Scala advising that the only confirmed satnav units the Scala G4 will work with are

TOMTOM Rider 1st Edition (except for scala-rider G4 and SRCS)

TOMTOM Rider 2nd Edition

TOMTOM Urban Rider

Garmin Zumo 550

Garmin Zumo 660

Garmin Zumo 665

Garmin Zumo 220

Great!!! Evil or Very Mad

Looks like I just spent a packet on something that is either no use to me or will need another investment for it to work Crying or Very sad

Too late to advise about your Scala, but a TT user found a cheap way to hear his SatNav when out riding, does anything here help?

EDIT, just tried some of the links provided and they are too old to work, but a search on eBay found similar items available today.
