Garmin76 GPS 12v cord

Well, pay postage please, figure about $2
Or $6 if you want the '76 with it.

Inside Seaweed the GPS works IF it is near the window. If I leave it face up the screen turns black after a few minutes. Reboot and screen works again. Still, its a pain in the transom.
I've upgraded to a tablet with OpenCPN so don't need this.

The cord is great. It has a plug that fits into back of GPS then cigarette adapter at the other end.
Allows you to use unit without batteries.

Say yes so I can get these things off the boat.

Hi Captain.

Today I went by the post office. On yours I asked postage to Canada. I was quoted "at least $12" and I would have to repackage so the customs label would fit. Nope!

That's simply too much money. I paid $12 or $16 for this brand new. You can do better locally in all probability.

So, thank you for interest.

Still available...

Side note: the connection cord that comes with the 76 cannot be wired to use your own cigarette adaptor. The fourth wire is the positive required and there is no continuity. There are four wires inside. I tried doing it myself and ended up buying this cord to make the GPS work from my 12 volts system.
