Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver
My Honda CRV front accessory outlet does not work since I have plugged in my Tomtom GPS receiver. Honda dealer says that my car cannot support the Tomtom unit and therefore a fuse blew because of amperage overload. The rear accessory outlet does work with my cell phone charger but I did not put the Tomtom charger in there for fear of blowing that fuse.. I do not want to go to the Honda dealer for repair until I determine whether the Tomtom charger cannot be used in the CRV accessory outlet specifically since the service dept. told me that it draws too much power and therefore blows a fuse. I am a woman of certain age but I can't bring myself to stick my hand in that fuse box to look at fuses. What do you think is the truth? It is a 15 amp fuse according to my service handbook.
The power cord for the Tomtom actually step down the voltage from 12v to 5v. The power chord is also rated at 2A so if the CRV power accessory can't supply 5v at 2A then I would suggest that you find another dealership to have them look at why the fuse is blowing.
Tomtom interal battery is usually 3.7v at 1800mAh or 1.8A.
