Making a USB Cable that will power a 660 (And probably other models) off USB Port
OK.. I used this adapter to determine pinouts....
Now... based upon that--- and this pinout information of USB and Mini pinouts..... http://www.hobbytronics.co.uk/usb-connector-pinout
Cut 5 pin mini USB cable in half, and also cut USB cable in half (refer to pinout link above)
Connected pin 1 of mini USB cable to pin 1 of USB cable (RED WIRE +5V)
I DID NOT Connected pin 2 OR pin 3 of mini USB cable to pin 2 or pin 3 of USB cable (Neither wire are used.... We are just powering GPS, not sharing data)
connected wires for pin 4 and pin 5 of mini USB cable to Pin 4 of USB cable (4 is ID, 5 is Ground on mini---4 is Ground on USB)
With this cable, you can power a 660 off of the USB Port
