I really missed my direct wired GPS when I sold the older van.  So while I was doing the iPod GTA car kit, might as well do this one too..

What you'll need:

1 - car adaptor for your GPS
2 - some thin gage wires, 2 colors preferred
3 - electrical tape & cutters
4 - some zip ties

Step 1: Tapping into the lighter

Please refer to my other instructable on opening the center console:

*** BE SURE car is in OFF position ***

Once you open up the bottom, note the color wiring of the lighter.

Disconnect & open the wiring terminals by pressing the locking plastic tab & pull. Then connect your wiring there.
I used double strand, just incase of overloading.
