Garmin Zumo 340 LM

Postby roger » 10 May 2016, 20:07

I bought a new Garmin Zumo 340 LM that I spotted on sale for not much money. Having then spent hours doing map updates, and deciding where to fix the unit on the ST1100 (in the centre, above the shelf), I have a small mystery!

What is the purpose of the small (1/8"?) socket at the bottom corner, at the opposite end to the SD slot? It's not mentioned in any paperwork, or on-line.....

I'd like it to be an output for a headset, but what else might it be?

I think(from memory) may be the socket for a traffic receiver .

Thanks Brian. I'm on a steep learning curve and I'd not thought of that! - It wasn't part of the deal....!

Actually suspect it may be the headphone socket, cannot find it in English but kopfhorer translates to headphones

It is not a traffic receiver socket as that is a mini USB socket.

Roger,

I just checked my Garmin 390 and on mine it is a headphone socket. I do find it a tad weird that it gets no mention whatsoever in the manual. :o

Special thanks to Jack - it's what I wanted to hear! .... :lol:

It's true - the paperwork that came with the unit is not as good as it could be and I couldn't find anything more on-line at the time. But it was cheap, so I'm not too upset!

I went my local Maplin store (http://www.maplin.co.uk) to purchase another power lead and a suction mount to enable me to fit the sat-nav in the car. The suction cup p/n A28NR was shown in their notes as 'suitable for Zumo' - but the clips didn't fully engage to mine without a slight reduction in width to drop into one of the two slots at the top. It's slightly crooked, but it'll do!

A small aside - the Zumo mini-usb port is also used to connect 'car power' ...as well as other services.

A good unit I picked one up from ebay for £200 with lifetime mapping and Aldi have them on offer a few weeks ago
BTW safety camera update lists can be purchased for @£10 for the year and used on up to four devices from http://www.scdb.info/

Andy,
Mine came from Aldi. The display said '...The last one at £199.99...'. At the checkout, it rang up at ...£159.99... :shock:

I haven't stopped smiling since! :D :D :D

I've also tested the 'mysterious' socket with an earpiece - it works fine. All I have to do now is work out how to connect it into my home-made intercom and, sometime in the future a PMR set-up... :geek:
