Greetings,
I just acquired a 2007 TB LT 4WD with the 4.2. (I hope I put this in the right place).
I was planning on placing my Garmin GPS on the windshield via the sticky suction cup that comes with it.
Instead of using the cigarette lighter outlet, I would like to hard wire it to a more permanent location in a fuse block.
I looked in the panel by the dashboard on the driver's side, but there are no fuses there.
There is a fuse block under the drivers side rear seat.
Would it be good to wire the GPS in that location?
If so, which fuse should I use?
I would like the GPS to turn on/off with the key.
The cigarette lighter sockets are hot all the time on my truck.
Thanks in advance.

Be Ye very careful from where you attempt to tap into electrical circuits --- the computers won't like you.
.... and keep that 12V test light out of there! You can load down a 5V circuit and do a lot of damage.

I put my gps on a mount that attaches to the ac vent, works great there, easy to plug into the power outlet

Not yet...been working on other issues. At this moment it is in a transmission shop. I was told it has a P0478(?) code. Waiting for an assessment to see what it needs.

How does a P0478 code, which means that there has been an abnormally high voltage reading from the exhaust system back pressure control valve circuit ... comport with a bad transmission? .
