I am looking for a combo cigarette lighter power cord/ serial cable with the round 4 prong plug for either my GPS V or GPS III.

I have an extra power only cigarette lighter plug and or dash mount for trade or cash. I can get one shipped on eBay for like $16.50.

Have you ever bought from Gilsson Tech? I bought a combo cord from them and it works great...plus was way cheaper than the Garmin one they wanted $35 for at Gander Mountain & Scheels.

Molded DB9 serial connector w/thumb screws for high vibration environments: i.e. car, boat & airplanes Power-On LED Light. Molded from end to end for durability. Approximately 6 ft. long.

That be the same one, but he is one of the 2 big sellers of this cable on eBay. I imagine with shipping and insurance the price will be within pennys.

The next couple of days I am going to mess around with the lap top now that I have MapSource loaded with all of the caches I have not found in a 70 mile radius.

Where have you been hiding Kaili? It's been quiet in the Valley this Winter.

I ordered a 12v AC adapter/combo cable from garmin's site for my Garmin GPS III about 6 months ago. We have a power inverter in the car to plug the laptop and GPS into so I didn't want to have a cigarette lighter adapter. This way we can use it in any wall outlet also Image

Garmin has that for $45: http://shop.garmin.com/accessory.jsp?sku=010%2D10277%2D00

I'm sure it could be found somewhere else cheaper.

I picked up a 300WATT power inverter at walmart for 30$ a few years ago. I think the prices have gone down for those too.

I know it's not exactly what you're looking for, but I know it's nice being able to plug the GPS into a wall outlet is convient Image

I bought a 100 watt converter from WalMart for $17. I figure that's good enough for the laptop. I have a second power outlet on my dash that will work OK for the GPS combo cable. I think I will just pay the $16 or $17 shipped from eBay.

Ahh.. yeah. I just hooked up a power strip to have more outlets Image Kind of silly it having only 1 outlet built in it.

I bought one shipped for $16.74. I should have got an external antenna for $19 more.
