Hi

I have the old black version. The cigg adapter without the red button.
Is the 12V to 5V converter in the cigg connector or is it near the end of the cable? (that small black box on the cable. If not in this small black box, what is that for? ).
Why I ask is that I want to cut off the cigg connector and hardwire it.

Also, is there an easy way to shorten the GPS cable? I only need approx 10 to 20cm or so.

Thanks in advance.

open the GPS up if you can, shortening the cable is pretty easy on most

a picture would help but from your description you have the adapter with the power converter in the cable near the USB end, the cig plug is empty

Thanks for the answer.

Opened the connector and you was right. That makes it easier to hardwire. Just need to get a fuse and holder and then it's a go.

The GPS needs to wait until the hardwire is done.

Thanks again.
