    I am searching for the pinout for a Garmin 2720.
    My wife borrowed it for a trip to North Carolina a few weeks ago, and left the cable in the rental car. I was looking for it yesterday, and she mentioned that she left it.
    Could have mentioned it sooner, I think. I am about to leave on a motorcycle trip tomorrow morning. DOH!
    I know I can make a temporary cable from some bent flat pins and a credit card, but I don't know the pinout.
    Can someone find a diagram, or tell me which pins to use? I have been searching, but it has been fruitless.

    For example, it's possible to get pplugs for some garmin models, and often you get a nice pinout diagram as well, like here.

    But the 2720 uses a "rounded triangle" shape thing. Thingy. Whatsit.

    :rofl

    Help?

    I called powerlet, as I will be down by them tomorrow, but they can't sell me one for less than $60.

    Due to time constraints,Powerlet is likely your best bet!

    When you return,get this deal,cut the wall wart off and put a power plug on the end and you are back in business.

    If anyone needs a 2xxx series charger or inexpensive wiring setup,
    this looks to be a great deal.

    I thought I ordered two, but nothing has happened yet. No confirmation email, no charge on card.
    I tried again just now, and when you think it will work, and you are done, the screen goes blank.
    :huh
    I will call and try to order it I guess.

    Got it, had to F5 it twice.
