Hi Guys,

Does anyone of you use the garmin ac charger? If yes, can the ac charger charge the gps without the gps being turn on?

if like charging on usb, the gps will turn on by itself..

I used a old handphone charger that happen to be able to charge my Garmin 1350.

Will the Garmin gets spoilt by this charger?

The charger states 5.0V as output.

Garmin chargers are rated at 5V 2A" thus make sure your charger can handle the current.
