I have searched far and wide for the same exact product, and one day I
found it! go to:
http://www.electronickits.com/kit/complete/elec/ck1614.htm
and look at the .PDF file with it, this timer can be set up to turn on
your radio/gps with the turn of your ignition key and then turn off
after your selected time, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15, etc. It is much
cheaper than the alternative and configure able to your needs.
