Garmin Nuvi 200W

Alright, so I bought a Ram mounting kit to put on my DL650 and it is working very very well. I use the Car adapter to get power right now, but I was wondering if anybody knows where or how I can permanently provide power to the unit without the big bulky Cig adapter. I already have a switched fuse box with lots of room.


For example I bought a "permanent" car kit for my Sirius radio, Id like to do the same thing with the Garmin. I have done a few searches and can't really find anything.

Anybody got some creative ideas?

I had the same GPS and could not figure out how to do it, as well as change the battery easily. I found a mini USB to powerlet cable and it is smaller. On mine the battery life was getting bad anyway so I swapped it for a Nuvi 500 for $200.00 . I plan on using this to direct wire it and it will work with the 200 series as well http://tinyurl.com/2an3eu2
