Made a box today for my GPS

Post by DHort » Fri Aug 30, 2019 7:26 pm

I needed something to hold my GPS while driving so I could see it. I did not want to modify the car, so I built a box. It hold a battery and a charger inside, and the GPS sits on top. I painted the entire box black, so the GPS will show clearly. I am not a carpenter, but I want to see how well this works. I should get a cord for my phone, too.

I also spent part of the day regripping my golf clubs, and setting up a table of supplies to build a rear axle.

It is an old Garmin. She even gets lost sometimes or tells me to turn right and there is only a road to the left. I usually use my phone when the Garmin seems to be wrong, or I google map it before I leave for my trip.
