Default GPS not charging?

I have a Montana 610 connected to amps mount. My sled does not have a battery. My dealer installed a heated shield plug and it is not charging my GPS when driving. What should I look for to fix my problem?

The GPS needs DC current your heated shield plug is AC alternating current it doesn't care if it's DC or AC on a heated shield.

Check your voltage to your plug like mentioned above if its AC it wont work, if its DC maybe the polarity is hooked up backwards.

Is there an adapter I can buy to change from AC to DC? Or another way to connect my GPS to my sled?

You need a diode that can handle about 5 or 10 amps you need to wire that into your positive side the diode is polarity specific.

Use the plug in for the cigarette lighter / 12v power point that is behind the gauges. I installed a plug-in then plug it in there. That way I can take the mount off and use it on my sidexside. Make sure to get good locking set of plugs so you don't have problem with it coming loose.
