Question about Garmin GPS
Garmin GPS products operate on +5VDC and require an adapter to convert +12VDC to +5VDC. The internal battery is 3.7VDC and is charged by the +5VDC.
If you want to use +24VDC, you will need to find an adapter that converts +24VDC to +5VDC @ 1AMP and has the right connector to mate with the unit. Connecting +24VDC directly to the unit will damage the GPS.
Some motorcyclists connect the GPS directly to the +12VDC battery and damage the GPS.
