Helix 5 - Source of power for indoor use
« on: August 05, 2019, 10:03:28 PM »
I have a Helix 5 SI GPS and would like to update and practice using it indoors without dragging a spare car battery inside. Is there a USB power connection or wall adapter that can provide power without a battery? Any suggestions?

I just checked the manual and it needs a 12 volt power supply of at least 600 mA. That would be .6 amps.
