GB-580 usage during charging
« on: July 24, 2012, 11:16:37 am »

Hello! First time post.

I'm considering buying a GB-580P but have a question about its on-bike usage. I ride many events which span days. I need to be able to use the device the entire time. There are numerous battery powered USB chargers on the market now for enabling this capability.

My question: Can the GB-580P be used while it is being charged/powered on the bike?

Thank you,
-Mike

Hello Mike,

Welcome to the forums! You can possibly try looking at the Power Bank charger that we have here: http://www.gs-sport.com/products.php?en_product_id=4&en_product_cnt_id=30

Since the device will be mounted on your bike at all times, please keep in mind that it's going to be a bit difficult to position the Power Bank on your bike. Unless, you find a way to have the charger positioned securely on the bike or manually remove the GB-580 from the bike mount and charge it.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for the link and the reply.

I can pretty easily attach most of the USB charge devices to my bike. The real question is whether I can use the GPS normally while the charger is plugged in. Some devices go into a different (un-usable) mode when plugged into a charger, others work normally when plugged in. What does the GB-580 do?

Thank you in advance!

You're welcome.

Yes, you can still use the GB-580 while it's plugged in to the Power Bank. It doesn't go to Charging Mode (only when the device is turn off) and you can use it normally as you want. Hope this is clear.
