Thumbs up Power your USB GPS from the bike for £5

Guys,

I just got a USB Car Charger that I butchered to suit the bike to power my Garmin eTrex Legend C GPS. Has worked a treat so far. Have a look on my home page for full details.

The short version is:
1) Get a cheap USB Car Charger off eBay
2) Butcher it and solder on some power cables
3) Mount on the bike
4) Ride with a powered GPS
