Garmin AC to DC Power Adapter Reviews
Average Customer Review:
Helpful and convenient AC to DC Power Adapter
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
