Question by Robert: I want to hook up my Garmin car GPS to a motorbike. Any ideas how to?
I just need to know that the voltage from a six volt motorbike battery will run a GPS that normally runs on a 12 volt car battery? Does anyone have a clue??? Please help!

6 volt will not power a 12 volt item, not to mention the vibration that your unit will have to endure. Your best bet would be to use a hand held unit, but understand that if you are under a lot of trees and foliage you will lose your signal no matter what you use. If you do go with a hand held you can velcro it to your upper arm with velcro straps just avoid attaching it to your bike. That will really jilt it to death.

No, it wont, unless you drive it very hard, i.e: Red-line RPM all the time.
