I have an older Magellan that I'd like to hardwire the powersource (I have a non rechargebale model.) I'm thinking about picking up the hardwire cable (attached)
Can I just tap into the lighter socket? And if I can do I need to install an inline fuse (how many amps?)
I dont want to use the cig adapter anymore, I hate seeing wires dangling everywhere.
The lighter socket is probably the best point. You should use a fuse - the lighter socket fuse will be too large to properly protect the GPS unit. You could check the cig adapter to see what size fuse it has.
