Yes... there is a 12v adapter available for purchase. The only drawback is it doesn't charge the batteries in the unit at the same time. You'll have to use the supplied charger to charge them.

I have the 550T. It locks onto and keeps locked on to satellites even while I'm in the house. My two other Garmins won't do that. The receiver on this series must be much more sensitive than previous models.
