In car use of the N700

Hi all, now the N700 is coming down in price (sub-£200 on Amazon) I'm thinking about picking one up for car use (mainly as a GPS, possibly Spotify to go through the aux input on my headunit, etc). Does anyone know if it's possible to get a car cigarette lighter charger capable of charging these? I have a Belkin USB one which I use for my HTC Desire currently, but it's only 500mA which I don't think is enough from what I've read briefly on here? Does anyone already do this and find it a good/bad solution? Cheers!

I've not found a satisfactory alternative to the supplied charger: it's a non-standard USB-mini derivative that can deliver up to 2A. UK Commtiva technical support were decidedly non-technical responding to my questions. They couldn't explain, nor even acknowledge why a generic 2.5A Maplin charger didn't work as well.

I haven't tried ViewSonic tech support.

Hm, possibly not the best device then. I suppose I could get away with just charging it in the house, but I'm unsure what sort of life I'd get if I was using it for navigation (i.e. screen always on, GPS active, occasional 3G activity) so I was hoping to just run a cable to it at all times just in case.

I'll maybe try an email to both Commtiva and Viewsonic to see if I can find out any proper information, but thanks for the pointer!
