    I have a TomTom GPS that need to be replaced, but I ran into the problem that dn current setup I have in the car has a 3.5mm jack with the new one is the Micro USB.

    There is an adapter that can solve this problem?

    All the one I can find online is for Headphones ...

    Is this for a power connection?

    The micro USB is going to accept 5V, probably through a small switchmode power supply. Power through a 3.5mm plug is unusual, but could be any voltage (up to 12V I guess).

    Didn't the new one come with its own power supply?
