thanks for your reply
the only problem is that I need to get a connector that goes from the 12V supply to the. I have hunted high and low but just cannot find one unless I but one from Garmin which I then need to wire up properly. Not being and engineer (or wanting to destroy my unit) I am stuck
I was hoping to locate a wire with a garmin connector on one end and a cigg lighter socket (or just a positive / negative croc clip on the other.
Happy to pay someone to do it if I can find someone
