Re: Nuvi 350 with FMI Stuck in Dispatch Mode or Power Pop-up Mess
- No problem Mike.
>The only other thought that comes to mind is a problem with the cable between the 350 and the OT2. I did have one 0183 cable that was DOA, but it had different symptoms. If the 350 cannot detect what cable or device is plugged in, it might give the same message. You just might have an intermittent cable.

Garmin does read the ID pin to determine what device/cable is attached. For the FMI feature, it is an 8.2K to ground. For its AC adapter, it as a 7.5K resistor from the VPWR pin to the ID and a 7.5K resistor from the ID pin to ground.
