I had the thought that since my Zumo 660 would fit in the Navigator V/VI cradle, why not the other way around? Since my 660 cradle had a line out connection, maybe I could forego listening to music over Bluetooth.

I tried it, and indeed it powered up and I could hear button presses, but to access the media player, it needed a Bluetooth connection. I do wonder if I’d have heard music over the line out channel if it detected a Bluetooth outlet, but that’d require a redundant connection.

I really wish they left the line out dongle on the cradle.

What did you have plugged into the line-out, ZNG?

I upgraded from a Zumo 550 to a Zumo 396. The upgrade is better in every way except it doesn't have an audio out jack and relies just on Bluetooth.

A pair of earbuds I use on the iPad...just to see if it works. It looks like the car mount includes a speaker, but it’s just for navigation...which matches the result I got.
