: Wiring for aftermarket Nav (Garmin/Magellan)

I would like some ideas of how to run power to my Garmin Nav unit (C550). The A-pillar location for the unit works well for me (have trained my left eye to look at the unit while keeping the right eye on the road :tsk: )!

Garmin doesn't make a specific hard-wire kit like the radar detectors have, so we have to be innovative :thumbup:

Is there a path to the fuse box from the A-pillar location?

you maybe able to route it along the bottom of the front windsheld. use black 2 wire cord. the garmin wire coloring is in the back of the manual. the wire can be then wedged under the trim along the passengers side to the power panel. one row is swithed the other hot.
