Red Band™ GPS Power cables enable Garmin Nuvi GPS to navigate when plugged into a generic USB power port such as the 3BR Powersports TAPP family of all-weather USB power ports.
Garmin Nuvi uses the cable to determine which mode, navigate or data, the GPS should be operating in. Using a standard USB data cable to power a Garmin Nuvi will cause it to go into data mode for transferring maps, route/track data, pictures etc.
The Garmin factory power cable is used to enable navigation mode. However, the Garmin power cable is unsatisfactory for powersports applications as it is not weatherproof, is way too long and is only supplied with a cigarette lighter-type of plug.
The 3BR Powersports Red Band GPS power cable looks like a standard USB power cable with a USB Type A plug on the source end but it has internal circuitry to make it appear to the GPS as a Garmin power cable. The USB Type A plug allows powering the GPS from any generic USB port and allows use of 3BR Powersports patented TAPP CAPP cables for full all-weather protection.
