    Sat Nav / Car question....

    A friend of mine wants to know... if there's no cigarette thingy in the car... is there another way of plugging in a satnav?

    Please help, us ladies are clueless about this!

    Sorry xx

    You could hardwire it into your fusebox !
    Or just make sure you fully charge it from a mains plug before each journey.
    Or fix the cigarette lighter.

    take extra batteries, if it resets or something when it dies then just plan route a to b, then b to c for after new batteries

    Most, if not all, sat navs have inbuilt batteries.

    If there really is no 12V socket anywhere in the car, then a decent mechanic could wire it into the fuse box for you for a few quid.

    What .........no cigy lighter socket ?? What car you got ?
    A Ford Model T ??

    My Zaffy has 2 sockets , one on the dash and one in the back panel by the R/H side rear lamp .

    Your Dad could solder one end into the fuse box, or even join it to the ignition wires, and then you just plug the usual end into the unit. He'll know what to do.
