Tip & How-To about GPS
Are you tired of having to keep your GPS plugged into the car for the entire duration of your drive? Does it die out instantaneously after removing it from it's jack? If it does, there nothing you can do to fix it because the battery had over heated and lost its battery life tremendously. I can only say that you would need to purchase a new one.
However, if your GPS doesn't die out right away, here's your chance to start prolonging its life. First, let it completely die out by turning it on, and leaving it on until it the batteries run out of charge. Second, plug the dead GPS into either a house outlet, or a car jack (if you are using the car jack, make sure the car is on!!!). Third, wait for the GPS to reach full capacity, but DO NOT let it overcharge, it kills the battery. So I recommend checking on the charging GPS periodically at even intervals of your choice. When it is done, just unplug it, and it is good to go.
NOTE: Do not charge the GPS in while in use.NOTE: If the battery is low as you are driving, turn it off and plug it in to charge.Explanation: This is why the steps above the notes are to be taken to prolong the life of your GPS' battery. 1 Complete Charge + 1 Complete Drain = 1 Charging Cycle
