Did the installation with the 3 amp fuse and took my GPS for a long testdrive today. It works just great. It charges my GPS while driving...real nice! :)

Power DeLorme PN-40

Has anyone used one of these to power a PN20/40/60 series GPS? If so, how do you like it?

I've got a 2002 Dakar. Anyone wire it onto one of these?

If I get some positive feedback, I'll order two!

What is a 20/40/60 series GPS? Garmin? If it will work with the Nuvi, and it does, it will work with yours.

It is USB which means it's Universal Serial Bus. If your phone or gps charges with a standard USB charger it will with this one. The only Motorolas it won't charge are Razors as they are wired differently.
If for some crazy reason it doesn't work, I'll refund you fully, including shipping.

Ordered one!

Hi Stephen!

Just sent in my order via PayPal. Will wire it into my 2002 Dakar. Will try to get some pics of the setup and will let you know how it works with my DeLorme PN-40 GPS. Also want to get a new MP3 player prior to WestFest and will give that a try also.

Let me know how it goes.
Good to see you stand behind your product. I just got back from my Alaska trip. First use and afterward I noticed that the USB plug is very tight. It took considerable effort to plug in my iPhone cord. Eventually it quit charging my iPhone. Turns out the plug has removed enough metal from the apple cord contacts that it no longer makes proper contact. Has anyone else had/reported this problem? 1 week into the trip it would no longer charge while in use but it would maintain a charge or charge if the device was off. Other than that no compatibility problems with the iphone 3Gs or other MP3 (my buddies) player.

I'll try one more cord (its also original Apple cord) but if its still to tight can I send it back for exchange. These cords cost as much as this USB charger.

In generl Re weather protection: I mounted it to the middle of my handlebars on my vstrom with black zip ties. While it never really got wet due to fairing protection I can rotate it downwards if needed. good product.

Powerslave,
Thanks for running it through the gauntlet!
I've tried it with my iphone/ipod cable and it's very snug but not causing any damage.
If you need a replacement USB charger email me your address and I'll send one to you. Please send the old one in so I can return it to the supplier.

Question Question

Did everyone wire this unit directly to the battery or did you use a fuse block or in-line fuse? What I am looking for is, if you ran it through a fuse, what did you use for amps, and have you had any problems in doing so?

I used a 3 amp fuse on the positive side, as recommended by Burnzilla (Stephen), and it works really great. No problem what´s so ever....I´ve discovered alot of new places in my surroundings already....really pleased

The fuse is overkill because there's a self resetting fuse inside the usb unit.
It's okay to be safe than sorry though.

I like the way you think... I wanted it fused but want to double check, thanks again...

Just hooked them up on the weekend and they work great. Only thing is that the Energizer USB battery charger doesn't seem to like it. Is there an obvious reason for this? It works fine in the computer and the wall - USB converter they give you with it.
