Iphone power connection

Have been looking through the posts, but they are numerous. My question is: I have a 05LT that has the cables for the navigation system. Has anyone utilized these cables to connect to an iPhone. I understand the sound through the speakers may not be an option but I am looking to primarily keep the phone charged.

Hello all,

I also own an '05 LT and I'm having the same idea. How to power an iphone using the existing navigation cables ?

Any help would be appreciated,

Re: Iphone power connection

Be careful . . . iPhone and other small usb type connections use 5v. I have always used reconditioned auto Garmin GPS units that used 12 v., but now there is a circuit in the plug that drops the voltage to 5v.

I have used this type of unit to power my latest & greatest (under $100) Garmin (free maps).

Be sure to fuse at 2-3 amps. Just say'n
