I have an old Garmin nüvi 760 that I love. It has an audio out jack and can connect to the car stereo. Are there ANY newer models with this feature? I can't hear the dang things worth a darn with the internal speaker.
By looking at manuals, it appears that those with an "audio out jack" were the nuvi 700, 800 and 900 series.
What about connecting the GPS unit to the car stereo via a Bluetooth adapter which would connect to the audio jack on the stereo?
I think that the Zumo models are the only units that will interface the spoken directions through Bluetooth. All the auto units I've seen only do phone calls or accept a data connection for traffic.
Ah. That's annoying. I was thinking that some of the "old" nuvis had a "headset" mode. But probably those are the same ones that have an audio output jack.
Interestingly, I think the "old" nuvis that had the bluetooth audio capability are the 7x0 series ... doesn't help Thrak with his question about replacing his 760.
One more reason why so many are giving up their Garmins for smart phone apps.
I agree.... I recall some of the older model had an audio out jack and some had Bluetooth.
Unfortunately, I can't recall which ones had which.
Maybe google garmin Nuvi with audio out jack ?
From the Garmin FAQ:
The following automotive devices have a headphone jack/audio out socket for headphones or an earpiece:
nuvi 300 series
nuvi 600 series
nuvi 700 series
nuvi 705 series
nuvi 800 series
nuvi 805 series
nuvi 5000 series
The headphone jack will either be located on the side of the device or on the mount and accommodates a 3.5mm size jack plug.
Garmin strives to maintain Bluetooth compatibility with the most popular motorcycle and truck headsets on the market. Currently, as long as the headset supports the hands-free profile and has a Bluetooth version of 1.1 or higher, it should be compatible, although it cannot be guaranteed.
Below is a list of Garmin devices that can be paired with a Bluetooth headset:
zumo 390 and zumo 395
zumo 590 and zumo 595
Thanks for the info. This should be helpful.
Since new Nuvi’s have no output jack this may be of some help to you on your Nuvi 760.
You can try using TTS VoiceEditor by editing the TTS voice you need by adjusting the volume setting to 100%.
This may help you to achieve more volume than you are receiving. I’ve used it on my Nuvi 660 and had a significantincrease in volume using it on TTS voice of American Jill.
