bizarre, bizzare GPS/Electrical behavior
I was finally able to go out for a longer ride yesterday due to warm weather. This was my first "long" ride (3 hours)
Over the winter, I installed:
-Eastern Beaver fuse box
-12volt "cigarette" plug
-Garmin 60CSX GPS
Everything goes into the EB fuse box.
While out on my ride, my GPS started turning off. Not sure what I was dealing with, I put 2xAA batteries in it to see if it was the unit or an electrical issue.
Once the batteries were in, I started getting "power disconnected" and the GPS switched over to battery power. I check the plug, it's properly seated.
Funny thing is, this seems to be happening when in first gear or at idle?Datal meter shows a steader 14.5 volts with the engine running.
I'm assuming maybe my wiring is wonky, I had to extend the stock power cable a bit, but I did a pretty clean solder job.
I use the GPS in my car, and i've never had any issues with it in 6 years.
any ideas where this gremlin is coming from?
