You've got a Garmin portable navigator and you share it with your spouse or children, so it's constantly moving between vehicles. Or you're often in rental cars and don't want to forget to pack the cable for your portable navigator. In any event, wouldn't you like to ensure that your Garmin doesn't run out of steam on the road because you don't have a power cord handy?

Garmin's Vehicle Power Cable works with all 2010 and newer nüvi® and zumo® navigators to provide in-car juice and keep you on the right track. It measures just under 6 feet in length and features a 12-volt plug on one end and a mini-USB connection on the other. Warranty: 1 year.

Excellent Product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not much to say. Garmin makes an excellent product. My 6 year old GPS needed a new power cable. I called Garmin and they were able to tell me what part I needed. I then contacted Crutchfield and they had the part. Always excellent service from Crutchfield

Pros: Works on my older GPS, not too expensive

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perfect. We use ours in the car and on the Harley Davidson. I was told by Garmin that the original (this one) by Garmin has a ID chip in it and if you use a aftermarket one it will only go into computer programming mode. Kind of ticked me off but it was not expensive and didn't want the hassle. Best to have a spare around.



works as advertised

My husband liked this power cable better than the one that came with the GPS. It is light and worked well in his truck.

Pros: Works well

Cons: None

Garmin GPS Vehicle Charger

Written by: BobB from Royal Oak, Michigan on September 16, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the perfect charger, due to the long cord, which helps reach the Charger Outlet in the Vehicle.

Pros: Able to place the GPS Any location, Very good Connections to GPS and Outlet

Cons: Try to store the long cord with the GPS, for I have employees who wrapped it around the GPS and cause the GPS chrager plug to break loose.
