Nav III in car

I've got the NavIII unit. When I tried to use it in the car, it didn't seem to be getting power from the lighter. I know it has power because the lighter works. Does the 12v adaptor need an adaptor to work in some cars? Any suggestions? It was hooked up properly to the rear of the unit, but no power.

Check the fuse in the adapter.

That's what the folks at Garmin suggested, but it's ok. I'm going to try it in another vehicle to see if it works there.

I tried it in the Envoy and it worked fine. Guess not all lighter sockets are created equal.
