      I have been powering the nuvi through the cradle and attaching the fmi cable to the side port. I use this same nuvi for aprs with my kenwood tm710 but it doesnt use the Fmi interface.

      I plug in the t3-mini into the USB port on the computer and it starts to beacon on the radio, I then plug in the nuvi to power through cradle and then the Fmi cable. I reset the t3-mini with the reset pin and then cycle power on the nuvi and still no Fmi interface.

      I wonder if the problem is in the nuvi 350? If I remove power through cradle it prompts me to say that the serial device needs power so it sees something is plugged in,
      How can I confirm that the t3 is sending the Fmi initiation packet?
      I am powering the t3-mini through the USB port, does that make a difference?

      I have updated firmware on nuvi (6.2) and t3 (whatever number is for the 29 April 2013 update). I also reset to factory defaults on both devices to start with a clean slate and still no luck

      Other things to check?
