Working on device with usb cord connected.

 

Whenever I connect my Nuvi 2598 to the usb cord to the pc it goes into usb mode. Is there a way to work on the unit at the same time?

My 765 ...

My 765 will stay connected to my computer using the USB cable - and it appears to be charging - if I safely disconnect, then pull the USB plug and immediately reconnect it. However, my 2595 does not react this way.

Somewhere here I posted how

Somewhere here I posted how to make a USB cable that will let you operate the GPS, as opposed to go into Terminal Mode...

I had to find out how to do it because the mount interface went dead on my 660, and I had no way to charge or run the 660....

I posted what cables would have to be purchased, and how they would to be cut and wired back together....

It's here, I just don't know where....

A 2689LMT in both our cars that we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!

Unfortunately

Unfortunately I don't think the method used with old Nuvi models like the 3xx, 7xx and 7xx will work with newer models.
