    Hey Guys and Gals,

    A while ago I was browsing the site and I found a thread that was talking about GPS locations. One of the guys on here purchased a Fuse Tap to DC Power converter so that he could plug in his GPS as if it were hard-wired. He mounted his GPS to his windshield and wired the DC power cable to the fuse box in the cab. From there, he had a DC female that tapped an existing fuse.

    My first question is - does something like that really exist or am I imagining things.

    Second Questions - if it does exist, where can I find it? I have looked all over the web and tacomaworld for a solution and have found nothing.

    Your help is much appreciated.

    Sorry for my lack of technical words. I don't speak electrical. :eek:

    Yeah just don't buy one from napa. I paid 26 bucks for one from there the other day b/c i was easer to get a project done and i couldn't find one anywhere else. they usually cost under 10 bucks at advance auto
