so, uh, yea. I just bought a gps unit and it came with the car cigarette lighter adapter, is there any way to power the navi unit from the battery?
It's a regular car navi system; Garmin nuvi 205 (link). The suction mount sticks surprisingly well to the spedo and I don't think it will fall off, but I have a backup aparatus which will hopefully save my system if the suction was to blow. I can run it on the battery for aroud 4-5 hrs, but I was wondering if it was any easy to do the lighter socket mod, it seems like it is, so I might give it a shot (might is the key-word there). Also, this noob is interested in what an air compressor might me, is it an electronic air pump of sorts?what kind of gps is it? both my Quest and Zumo come with motorcycle mounts. It's better than plugging it into a lighter socket since the cradle also has a locking mechanism.
that being said, I also have cig lighters on all my bikes. Comes in handy for charging the cel phone and for my air compressor.
Because you watch them turtles.why not just strip both ends and put a smaller plug in?
