Issue with mount for Nuvi 3597

 

After updating to the new map and installing the Nuvi in the car, I noticed that I was not receiving any sound. I removed the GPS from the mount and got sound from the Nuvi. Upon reinstalling it, again, no sound. I did this a couple more times with the same result. I removed the Nuvi once again and rubbed my fingers over the pins on the mount, reinstalled the Nuvi and guess what? I had sound coming from the mount. Apparently, one of the pins on the mount was stuck and wasn’t making contact with the appropriate pin on the Nuvi. This was a first for me and was just wondering if anyone else had come across this problem.

Not me

I haven't experienced it but it's good to know for the future.

Also could be a possibility of dirty contacts.

Not So Far

I have three 3597's and haven't noticed this issue with any so far.

Since I have three of these units, I decided to order a spare mount just in case while they are still readily available:

Only had something similar happen once

I had noted very low volume once. Apparently the sound was coming out of the tiny internal speaker and not the amplified one in the mount. I simply removed and reseated the 3597 and all was well. I chalked it up to some schmutz on the contacts that got cleared off by reseating it.

Not seated properly...I’ve had that happen a couple times.
