obxdiver, you are the man. I did this simple "hack" yesterday and it works perfectly. I opt'd to remove the wire connector from the plastic housing rather than clipping the wire, this took a few more minutes but I feel well worth the time. I will say fellows that my NAV unit took a couple of "short" drives to correct the 15 second updates. I only drive 3 miles a day.
Thank you obxdiver!
