    Default Hardware of nuvi devices

    On this resource there is a lot of information on the software of nuvi navigators, but almost anything isn't present about hardware. Research of hardware of these devices is a very interesting subject. On an example of some of them it is possible to trace evolution of development of navigators, and also to find a set of interesting engineering decisions.

    I suggest to place here any interesting information on this subject.
    Google Nexus 5 5.0.1 (SP 2.35) / Nuvi 310 -> 710 -> 205W -> 1310T (Deluxe FW) -> 2495LT GLONASS / Nuvi 765T -> Nuvi 3490LT / Nuvi 765T -> Nuvi 765T

    It is for Russia! I see better then you

    Model: Nuvi 3490
    Part Number: 006-B1376-00
    Hardware Version: V11 8GB O35 MA DA TC PP GM

    or

    Hardware Version: V7 8GB O36 DS TC GTL

    Both model had with different GPS chip!

    P.S. My suggestion - make a tables (databases) with the interesting parameter for all model. Then everyone will be able to obtain the necessary information and upload it for inclusion in the database!

    Thing I noticed is that the processor is a Cortex A8. This could conceivably run Android, if it had enough onboard memory.

    I'm looking for hardware info on 3790/3490 powered Mount. (pinout)
    The objective is to extract audio signal from mount and feed to car radio or amplifier or headphone.
    Also how to open mount without damage.

    My 3490 is only 2 GB

    At first it is necessary to collect many data, and to provide them it is possible in any kind.

    There is original cable. At least, it is in a complete set with Russian 3490. It is an audio output on jack 3.5mm.

    It is very interesting to learn that designate these abbreviations?

    I don't have this cable with my nuvi.
    Have you tried to use it ?
    Another user tried it before and it did not work ?
    Maybe you can try it and give feedback.

    036 could be GTM36 ?

    What's the high purpose of installing Android there? Porting linux kernel typically leads to red eyes and haemorrhoids, so what can we expect from this? Isn't it better to buy a cheaper Android device?

    I see one big profit of such Garmin hardware database. We can try to figure out which firmwares are suitable for some device models, then choose the best firmware, and port it.

    Thanks for cheking. When you have time will you check 3790 also.
    The Application I have in mind is a mute controller. (car kit). (Stereo from Nuvi is not important)
    Like Cellphone MP3 or Ipod +Nuvi, When Nuvi Speaks Ipod Shuts Up (automatically), Have to do it by the mount because I need 5volts from the mount to power my electronics.
    Also that cable is ok for once or twice usage but not for for everyday usage. Some days I remove nuvi from mount 20 times.
    When I have money I will buy another mount to see. But if I can get pinout it will help me, maybe someone has a broken mount ?
