How many watts does the 670 draw when on 12V?

    With the profusion of 12V chargers, I now have 4: one for the Nuvi 670,
    one for a Motorola Razr, one for my Cardo bluetooth headset, and one for
    an Kensington iPod charger/FM transmitter. I don't expect to have more
    than 3 of them plugged in at any one time, and I suspect that the total
    power need will be way under the 15 amp fused circuit (with 12 volts
    from the battery, the max power would be 180 watts, if I understand
    correctly).

    I checked online and can't find what the power consumption of the Nuvi
    670 is. Does anyone know?

    Also, other than adding an adapter with multiple sockets, are there any
    other options?

    Thanks,
    Ken K

    According to the Nuvi 670 Manual online at the Garmin web site page 65.
    It draws 10w max so with P=IE 10w=Ix12v so current draw is 0.833amps.

    Thanks. I missed that in the manual.
