register what you were asking. now trying it again I can't get it to
work. I can confirm that the nuvi and the t2 are talking to each
other though. Tried to power cycle both the t2 and the nuvi - still
no go. it did respond with the version number once though and from
that the wiring I assume is good. part of the problem is also user
error, knowing the expected syntax helps a lot.
