I purchased a microphone for my Garmin Nuvi660 to enhance the blue tooth function, but when I got home and looked at the manual and it shows the location to where to plug the mike in at the bottom left, I see no place to put this mike there, I only see a place where the headphone jack goes. Anyone know what the deal is???
From the Owner's Manual (page 2), it looks like the microphone jack is on the mount, not on the Nuvi itself.
I also purchased a microphone for my nuvi 660 and the plug goes ino the mount itself, I am pretty sure just to the left of the power cord. It does not plug into the nuvi unit.
Well that sorta stinks, doesn't it? What if you want to use battery power?
It does not require the power to be plugged in to use and though not a great solution, the microphone plug is in the bracket that attaches directly to the garmin unit. You could remove the top plate of the mounting bracket from the ball joint and leave that attached to the garmin unit. It only adds a little more depth to the unit if you want to use the microphone while being mobile.
Yes, It is on the left side of the mounting cradle. I got one for mine...it adds alot of depth to the voice on hands free conversations.
Does anyone one if the microphone is plugged in and you are using a cassette adapter for Mp3's will the unit mute the MP3's to answer the phone?
I have a cassette adapter for my nuvi 660 and although I don't have an aux mic plugged in, I believe it does mute mp3's when answering the phone.
(using nuvi microphone)
Tried it last night and with an external microphone plugged into the mounting bracket and the cassette line plugged int to the unit the volume is muted when an incomming call is received. Nice touch!!
I was about to ask another one of those "stupid questions". I haven't been satisfied with the sound quality of my cell phone (LG VX8300) to others, and was considering an external mic. I have several, so I tried to use one of them....you guessed it, it the wrong jack. After reading these comments I immediately saw the error of my ways. Using the jack on the MOUNT works well, sounds great. You know what "they say", don't you? When all else fails, read the instructions. Thanks, everyone, for pointing me in the right direction!
