Charging TomTom in the car GO 5200

The USB connection in the car does not provide enough power to sufficiently charge the 5200. Are there any alternatives?

    Hi @PA0DRO

    If you are plugging the unit into a USB socket it will not be providing enough power to run and charge up at the same time. If you are using a 3rd Ptty unit some , whilst suggesting a sufficient power output, do not work with the TT units. If you are using the Tomtom supplied Charger then check if it is charging the unit.
