Thanks for that Rodney... I may change up the wiring on mine to run off the 12v hot / backup circuit via DPST switch - that way I can swap it back to normal (backup only) operation...
I am really impressed by this Garmin.. We were driving along and I told Dar - I read that this Garmin even has Voice Command ability --- suddenly the Garmin spoke "Say a Command!"... LOL
Dar said - has that gadget been listening to everything we've said on this trip?
Evidently so I replied!
