Power it off your sleds battery. Mount a cig lighter receptacle and run a fused wire up to it. If you get a smaller (handheld) GPS I would suggest mounting it on your handlebars so it is easier to view and if you go with a larger screened one mount it on your dash. Also another suggestion would be to get the Marinco locking plug setup.

I don't think they are rechargeable. Yes there is a big difference when using the lithium batteries, alkaline batteries will go dead in the cold, the lithiums won't. I played around with my gps at the end of last year, I had no problems going all day on a set of batteries, but its a good idea to bring an extra set. This year I think I am going to buy the polaris outlet and run the gps from the sled this year.
