Does this cable need to get power from the radio or the 4-way splitter when there is power being inserted into the Garmin FMI cable. I have also read that the Garmin Nuvi 350 needs to be powered in the dock for the FMI cable to work. Seems to me that there is a lot of power in the GPS/FMI cable to power the GPS, FMI, and OT1+ already.
