Does what it's supposed to do.
 
Although the eTrexes were really designed for use in the outdoors, I use it in the car to help predict distance to go, etc., and if I have the local map downloaded to it, it has helped me out of binds on a couple of occasions. If you use it in the car, you really want this adaptor to save your batteries.Not only will it save the batteries, but I can operate my Legend in normal mode to get better position from the WAAS data. (Battery saver mode precludes the use of WAAS and normal mo...

Good product, but an expensive accessory.
 
This product is a must if you use your GPS in your car. It will save you many, many batteries. I like the quality. It feels solid. The LED on the lighter plug is useful. It indicates that you have power. The piece that snaps into the eTrex seems to connect well. It's never come unplugged after rolling around in my truck. The cord is plenty long for my needs--about four feet. My only complaint is the cost. The price was a little more than I would liked to have spent, but it's the only g...

Poor quality & design, great Garmin Support
 
I bought this for my Vista and upon first insertion into the cig. lighter it broke a small plastic tab inside the unit that prevents the side spring metal pieces (that are connected to GND when in the lighter hole) from coming in contact with a diode. This shorts the diode to ground and it blows the fuse. I rigged it to still work and had another one sent to me and I opened it and it looked fine, then I plugged it in and got a blown fuse. I opened it and the tab was broken. I then called Garm...

Works great, but its another wire!
 
This adapter is functional, is easy to use, enables continued use of backlight, and saves the batteries for walking with the eMap after arriving in a strange town. When I want to connect other media while driving with my family, I use a 12v 3-Outlet Car Power Adapter. Despite another wire, it's a worthwhile accessory.

CAUTION: This adapter is NOT for eTrex Legend or Vista
 
I'm sure this thing works fine on some GPS units... but it's less than clear that this adaper WILL NOT WORK on the Legend or Vista. The title is misleading (it says "most" eTrex), the Product Description is just wrong (it says "all" eTrex). FOR The eTrex LEGEND or VISTA, you need a different adapter!!

Simple and to the point
 
All I require of this cable is that it plug easily into both my car and my Garmin Venture and then power my Venture. It does that swimmingly, just as it should.The only aggravation has nothing to do with the cable: when you remove the cable, the Garmin will power down unless you hit a button telling it not to. I would often have the GPS hooked up in the car, get to the parking spot, then remove the cable in order to go and and get to the geocache. At which point the GPS would turn off ...

Did the job....
 
This adapter does exactly what I wanted it too: 1) Save the battery while I'm in the car. 2) Increase reception; the signal seems to be stronger when I've got my etrx plugged in. 3) Easy on, easy off. No problems whatsoever.

does not say it is "incompatible with CX series"
 
I received this DC power adapter for my garmin etrex venture CX in high hopes it would work with my particular gps. It does not state it wasnt incompatible and only says in the description that it is compatible with etrex venture models. And, lo and behold it is NOT compatible with ETREX VENTURE CX, you need a model with the cigarette to 5pin adapter. I did receive a blackberry from work which has one of those and it works great with my gps.

Does Not Work with eTrex Legend Cx
 
This auto adapter does NOT work with eTrex Legend Cx. The link provided by Amazon and the text accompanying text is misleading; this said when even going from the purchase of the Legend Cx to the auto adapter it doesn't warn you off of this model. It would have been nice had the description said it doesn't work with the Cx series. Now I am stuck with returning the unit and going through all of that hassle - something I should not be doing.
