    I have two Garmin names on my iPhone for my new DriveSmart 61:

    BLE_Big Boy Garmin

    and

    BT_Big Boy Garmin

    They are both connected. Anyone know what they are, as in the difference?
    Thanks!

    They are two different flavours of Bluetooth, i.e.:-
    BT = Bluetooth (standard)
    BLE = Bluetooth Low Energy

    The second one used less power as it goes into standby when not transferring data

    Do you know why I have both? And would it be safe to delete the non-low energy version?

    I guess Garmin have provided both types of Bluetooth for some reason.
    Yes, I would make sure that the BT version works O.K. first, also they should both always be available after one is deleted by doing a Bluetooth search on the iPhone
