    Guys
    I finally broke down and got a Zumo 550 GPS for my KTM, and it didn't come with a wall charger so I can charge it up in the house. Are all Mini-USB chargers the same? Can I use one from any other USA voltage electronic device I may have or is there something special about the ones listed for the Garmin units?

    Thanks

    I haven't had any problems charging my NUVI with a generic USB wall charger. I'm even using a shorty USB cable from yet another device. Living dangerously I are. Yup.
