      Yes, it is the same cable, and I have tested it with 55576 and the only thing that functions correctly is position reporting.  Waypoints, are not displayed, and for all intents and purposes, it is not very functional.

      I have been running the developmental build and it's been running great ever since I turned compression off.  I would suggest anyone who is interested in the 1300, use the developmental build over the "stable" release.

      Chris my first question, does the 1300 use the same cable as the nuvi 350. Next have you tested it with firmware 55076 a stable release.

      Thanks Rick/ kd4dra

It could send and receive messages, but it would intermittently send/receive the ACKs and the messages would retry forever. Only about 2% of the messages would actually ACK correctly. It also had issues displaying waypoints; some worked, and others didn't; I have now found a work around: disable compressed data packets. Send it the command COMPRESS OFF.

The only bug that survived and is still an issue is that one cannot send or receive messages while en route to a destination. If you tell the Nuvi to plan a route, it will not process messages. Other than that, it works much better.
