Question: I am wondering about using this in cold weather & 12 volt power?

I was wondering if you can plug this into a 12 volt outlet for power and what temperature can you use it in. I am looking for one i can use on my snowmachine and plug it into my 12 volt accesory outlet.

    I use my 62s on my snowmobile all winter. That's primerily what I bought it for. I installed a 12volt cigarette plug-in on my machine - being very careful to ensure the output was a constant 12 volts from the magneto, and I tested the output at the end of the gps chord to ensure it was a constant 4.5 volts output. All was good. I mounted the new 62sRAM mount on the dash of my sled and away we go. I modified the RAM mount to accommodate taking the gps off the machine without having to unplug it. Any temp doesn't seem to affect it. Minus 35c and covered with snow - it works great. The Birdseye imagery has gotten me into and out of quite a few good play places and back to the truck after being 'lost'. Hope this helps.
