12V accesory plug question

3 posts in this topic

I have a question related to hooking up my Lowrance H2Oc GPS to a 12V accessory plug. I know I would not want to hook up a sonar to the deep cycle batteries (24V system), but would there be any interference to a GPS unit while running a trolling motor? I was hoping I would not have to run wires all the way to the back of the boat to get to my starting battery. I know a small gps unit would not draw much from the batteris, but I wanted to make sure everything would work properly. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I think as long as it's 12volts I don't see a big issue.

The problem that I have with mine is that my acc. Where the plug doesn't keep a good connection or the power dips a little were it will shut off. Just havn't had time to figure out that issue yet.

Should be no problem. That is why they make the accessory plug hookups for most GPS units.
