Does anyone know the pinout of the Nuvi dash/window mount connector?

If you're asking for technical details about how the traffic data is
transmitted, I can tell you but you're going to have to read some
textbooks first. It's /way/ beyond what this group will be interested in.

No, I'm just looking to find the pinout of the mount connector [not the
side usb or audio connectors]. Not the traffic communication protocol --
just the pinout itself -- i.e., what is the function of each pin.
There are many more pins on the mount connector than are needed for just
power, ground, and traffic data -- and I would like to know what they are
Among other interests is the question if any of them carry duplicate
audio out, so audio/power connection could be made to the car via just
the mount connector instead of using the mount for power [only] and the
1/8" side jack for audio.
Or maybe one of the pins carries a logic level signal that could be used
for muting other audio sources when the unit decides to speak.
Pinout. Of the mount connector. Some of which may indeed [one would
hope] be of some [be it limited] interest to at least some of the readers
of this group.
Thanks for bumping the question though...

I was trying to find out what you were talking about since I didn't understand
why you'd ask the question. The pinout of the mount connector is obviously the
same as the pinout of the thing it's connected to: you can see that they're just
So the answer is that under normal operation the pinout is USB. Which is what I
answered in the first place. I see you've already found this out on another
