Power outlets in UK car rentals

Weird question: We're bring our own Garmin GPS to use for our month in England. We have a new 2013 SD card for the UK. Will our own Garmin GPS car charger work in UK rental cars? Do they have the same type/power outlets as the cars in the USA? I'm sorry this sounds so stupid, I just didn't know where to ask about it!! Thanks!!!

Yes. We used our daughter's Garmin to get around western England last summer and Normandy the summer before. If you want a scenic trip, try setting it on "bicycle" instead of "car". We did that for a few days before figuring out how it works. Talk about "Europe through the back door"!

Leslie, you are not the first. Or the second. Or even the third. There is no stupid question - just being stupid by not asking a question that you don't know the answer for.
