I can hear a little poping sound when a signal is received, but no led. I was able to get the T2-135 to reply with version 54680 once. It will not reply to any commands from the nuvi 350 at all, just the one time version. At a stand still with the T2-135.

And as a side note I purchased the 18 pin cable wired for the T2-135 to see if my Street Pilot C530 would work, but I get no FMI nchange to the Street Pilot. My thinking was if the messaging worked with the Street Pilot I would turn the waypoints off.

> Update on the 18 pin cable for the Street Pilot. It works, but like some other GPS units, it does add multiple waypoints. Bases on what others thought I expected that, but I can turn waypoints off, and use it for messaging.
Of course it works 100% with nuvi 350, but I wanted to use my existing Garmin.
The problem with the LEDs was caused by me. I loaded the cfg file from my T2 tracker. Of course the two trackers have different operating characteristics. After I loaded the operating system for the T2-135 with it's different cfg file it works great. Sorry for all the bandwidth, but maybe someone else might benifit from my mistakes.
