Garmin GPS 10X and ipad connection issue

I have an older bluetooth gps unit from garmin the GPS 10x. Is anyone else using this device to provide position data to an iPad? I cannot seem to get the ipad to see the garmin unit. The ipad will connect to my inReach, the garmin will connect to my Pixel4 phone, but the iPad just doesn’t see the garmin in the bluetooth page. Any other ideas? I sent an email to garmin support to see if maybe there is a firmware update…usually that is a dark damp rabbit hole though.

Hi @RVZephyrRon,

I apologize for the late response. I’m going to see what I can find on this topic for you.



You’re on the right track with reaching out to Garmin support. If you get the unit successfully paired and are still not getting proper positioning info, feel free to reach out to us at that time and we will be able to assist further!
