oregon300 car charger

#1 Post by barath » Thu Apr 22, 2010 12:49 pm

Can anyone explain to me what is the spec that i need to look out for in choosing the correct car charger ?
The unit uses a 2 AA size batt.

Car batt is 12 volts rite ?

How many amps is needed ?
Some say 500mA is enought, anything more than that can blow the unit. ??

Keep your money. When an Oregon is connected to a USB power source it will use that source to ONLY "power" the unit. It WILL NOT charge the unit !!!

Most standard phone and camera "USB" power adapters will power the Oregon.

You may find by default the Oregon will enter mass storage mode unless you have the Setup-System-Interface setting configured to Garmin Tool (Spanner shaped icon)
