Hi,

I looked through 26 pages of the bluetooth forum and couldnt find an answer.

When I try start bluetooth I get the following:- "The Bluetooth radio failed to turn ON due to insuffiucient driver memory available. You must perform a normal reset before you can turn ON the Bluetooth Radio."

Did a normal reset and still get the same problem.

Any ideas.

I used to get this all the time with this series of iPaqs.

Try going to start > settings > memory and closing all programs, then try again and see if that makes a difference.

Be sure to come back and let us know :-)

Disenchanted,

Thanks I tried that but it didnt sort the problem. Instead, I backed everything up and then 'podged' the reset button on the bottom of the IPAQ. After it had all reset I rechecked to see if I could get Bluetooth and it was all ok.

Didnt even loose any data or have to restore anything.

Problem sorted.

Cheers

Swisz

One of the things a soft reset like that does is to stop running applications (which frees up memory).

Im surprised its happening with the 37xx series as I had it lots with a couple of 34xx and thought maybe I should have bought the 3715 instead to avoid that problem...

odd.

Anyone else getting the same problem?

I have Bluetooth problems with my 3715 as well.

1) When Tomtom looks for the bluetooth GPS it doesn't pop up the Bluetooth dialogue. You need to manually connect before running the app.
2) After a bit of use the iPaq ignores the Bluetooth manager button altogether. A soft reset fixes it all, but it's a pain.

I guess the fact that the Bluetooth driver is v1.0 suggests that there is some development work still needed.
