Has anybody tried a 6v to 12v converter? The one shown says it is adjustable and there are other types at the bottom of the page.

I used this one to run my GPS and charge my phone. Cant do both at once but really cheap. You have to supply your own enclosure and wires.

You don't need 12 v to charge a phone or a GPS - the standard voltage in their batteries is usually about 5 volts, so most of them will charge just fine if you hide a lighter socket somewhere to plug in a charge cable from the device.

I run my Garmin GPS on 6 volts. It has turned off when the battery was low on idle and started again at speed, but since I increased the charge at the third brush so it didn't run low with the lights on, then it hasn't turned off.
