Well, I hooked up the DC cable to the ignition cable (ya, I did that before I asked for help) and the GPS hub does not get a constant stream of power. I am assuming this is because the ignition cable only transfers power when the ignition switch is being pressed. Well, the DC cable for the hub actually has a fuse in itself and I am wondering if it would be possible to hook this up directly to the battery rather than playing around with the other cables (I can see a lot of potential problems with this scenario, like the hub constantly draining the battery to charge the GPS unit). I like the idea of hooking up the DC to the license plate light, but I can't seem to find it on the wired diagram. The only wire that I was able to find on the diagram is the Brake/Tail/License light but I can't figure out which one is which. Three cables come out of that spot and one is Green, Green/Yellow, and White/Black. Any additional help would be appreciated. In the mean time, I will try to contact Garmin technical support to see if they can help too.
Yah, I'm probably putting too much work into this, but I just want to make sure I do it right.
