Elite 4 CHIRP 12v Hook Up

Hi

Does anyone know how to hook up my chart plotter to a 12v supply when not attached to my boat? Can you buy connecting leads that you can attach to a battery? I just want to be able to access the plotter when I'm at home, away from my boat.

Thanks for any responses,

Jon

Yep, spare power lead. Had one for our old Garmin, now purchased another one for our new Garmin Chirp gps/sounder. I connected a cigarette type plug on the end & plug it into a portable power pack. Works a treat! Do all your uploading/downloading info at home!
