Since it's a 20V battery, my guess is you'd need a transformer to step up bike system voltage to 20V to fully charge the battery directly from DC. Next choice would be a 12V inverter to run the AC...

Re: Nushield screen protector

I'm corresponding with the nice people at Nushield about the protector for the 590.

I ordered the one listed for the Nav V, which is variously described in the Nav V thread as 108x64, or 107x64. ...

I used a paper cutter to trim the Nushield protector: bad idea. Scissors would have been better.

Watch Out For The Nushield 108x64 Screen Protector For The Nav V

It's slightly too big for the 590, and my attempts to remove 1/16" weren't successful.

Maybe you'll be able to make a better cut, but keep the possibility of butchering it in mind. 107x63 would...
