Wanted: Cradle connector pinout for Garmin 860

It seems too be the best kept secret about the pinout of the discontinued Garmin Nuvi 860. When I mount the device on the cradle in my car, the sound switches to mute and I hear nothing. When I cover the first 10 pins of the connector, I get the voice navigation back on the internal speaker. I like to solve the problem about why my voice support during navigation does not work on my car radio speakers. I do not know if it ever worked, but tracking the pin connections on the cradle is only possible when I know the signal assignments on this connector. Please help me to provide the pinout of the connector on the bottom side of my Garmin Nuvi 860. Thanks in advance

SOURCE: My garmin nuvi 760 suddenly lost it's voice and I

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Assuming you have all the features on, try this

You will need to ensure that you are running the latest software which can be done by installing a program called WebUpdater. WebUpdater can be installed via the link below:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27

Once updated please allow the unit to reboot which will ensure the software successfully installs.

If after following all the above the final steps would be to perform a master reset:

Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.

  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers on. After 5-10 seconds you will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  6. Touch Yes

The device will automatically reset. Please follow the on screen prompts on the nuvi and when completed place your device in an area with a clear view of the sky until it acquires satellites.

SOURCE: Garmin nuvi 360 suction cup knob issue

If the end of the cradle has a ball,and the cup has
a round part, just push the ball in, yes it does go in hard but should be ok. If it makes you feel more
comfortable, you can put a drop of water on ball and wipe it around, once it dries, it wont slop around.

SOURCE: I have a Garmin Nuvi 770 that won't "speak" when navigating

Frequently (about 20% of the time) when I have my Nuvi 770 plugged in, in the car and I turn it on, it gets stuck at the start up screen where it says, “Loading maps” I wait several minutes and it never completes. Then I turn it off and turn it back on and it comes right up, but with no voice. When I go to Tools > Setup > Language it shows no language and I cannot select one. I have to plug my Nuvi 770 into the computer, run web updater, it detects that I already have the software loaded and I select the option to download it again. When it has completed, I unplug the Nuvi and then go to Tools > Setup > Language and select American English.

SOURCE: Anyone - I purchased 5

If the unit will connect to your computer you can try copying all files from one GPS to the other. Just be sure not to copy over the *.UNL file. That contains the unlock information for that specific device. This may get the unit running. If you get the error can not unlock maps after doing this try updating the map again. If the above fails please call Garmin for assistance. 1.800.800.1020

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 750 car cradle/charger does not charge

Hi tbrick

if you dont have the original charger, the 750 take a special car charger because of the traffic feature...it has a flat end about 3/4" to 1" long that fits in the cradle, but you can use a garmin usb charger, you just wont be able to use the traffic feature.

if thats a little confusing ( i tend to do that) i try and explain it another way.

if you think you need or want one of those chargers, just post back to me.

Here in Johannesburg South Africa I need a simple easy to use handheld GPS. The best buy seems to be Garmin Nuvi 1300. But now I see it has been discontinued. Is there any disadvantage in buying it or do I...


There should be no disadvantage to buying a discontinued garmin nuvi 1300 as garmin continue to support their discontinued models. Even if you buy a new one now it will be probably discontinued next year since garmin seem to create a whole new series each year or so. Most of the garmin satnavs in use are discontinued models. When I bought mine the 1300 hadn't even been released and I have had no problems.

Garmin 205 W has been discontinued and webupdater


I find that hard to be true. The manufactuer just came out with updates for the Nuvi 3xx and 6xx this month (Aug 09) and those models are older than your Nuvi 205W. When you mean updates are you referring to firmware or maps? Either way, even the discontinued models are still being supported with firmware & map updates.

If you are having trouble getting your unit updated, please let me know and I can help you with this.

How to snap the ball in the window mount on garmin 350 gps


It takes quite a bit of effort to get the ball into the socket on the cradle in the first instance. On pg 57 of the Owner's Manual it describes and has a picture of Removing The Cradle from the Mount by turning it to one side and states "To replace the cradle, snap the cradle on the ball socket." It seems to be easier if you also turn to cradle to one side to snap the ball in - at least such is the case with mine.
