  • Monitor power constantly on?

    Hi Guys,

    I want to know how to configure the monitor to be switched on without draining the battery?

    I have the small array of buttons at the bottom of my lilliput 629 GL. One of them of course is the power switch. With this behind my bezel and out of sight or reach, would it be possible to set the monitor status to on using this switch before I install the bezel without running down the battery?

    As I assume I might need a on/off switch for the monitor if I put one in on the power supply line to the monitor?

    How do the guys normally do this?

    I assume the power supply line is hooked onto the same line (cigarette adapter line) that is turned on/off with the turn of the key to accessory state?

    This would be a good place to start your search. Hint: Auto power-on.
