Helpful and convenient AC to DC Power Adapter

Written by: Karlab713 from Owings, MD on January 24, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great thing to have, as it allows you to charge the GPS pretty much anywhere there is an outlet. My old one only charged in the car or when connected to my computer...but the computer had to be up, awake and running. When the computer was sleeping, no charging took place. I'm really glad I bought this.

Pros: Very convenient

Cons: None.
