I'm not telling you how your unit works, just mine. I have a Garmin
Nuvi 750 and the only connection to the car is the cigar lighter plug
for power. Mine also has an interlock that won't let you input data,
addresses, etc if the car is moving. The interlock can be disable
through a menu option. I thought that, if yours is made by Garmin, it
might have the same operating system mine uses.

I still fail to understand why a navigation device would need an input
from the speedometer. It already has all the information it needs to
tell the vehicle's speed, direction of travel, altitude, etc. It
would seem that an input from the speedometer would be redundant.
