They mean either a fuse in one of the regular fuse boxes or the fuse in the cigarette lighter itself.

Is the GPS used or brand new?

Did you check all of the fuse boxes in the car?

I'm trying to think if there is a fuse behind the cigarette lighter [socket] itself

The fuse for that is in the interior fuse box, located in the leg well of the drivers side.

Good luck. This is a fuse that will blow from time to time.

These cars have 2 fuse boxes as it typical with Honda. The main fuse box is under the hood on top of the driver's side front wheel well. The one for the interior is along the outside of the leg well where your left leg would rub if you were driving the car.

Fuse under the hood
First check your fuses. If that isn't the problem try this: take a small flat head screw driver and gently bend the two prongs out a little bit. They are used to hold the lighter in place so that it will operate properly. If your lighter works with the key off remove the fuse first. As for replacing the lighter there are two wires connected on the back side you'll need to remove them. On some lighters you will have to unscrew the outer body to remove the lighter others have a nut that has to be removed. Access to the back side of the lighter is always a pain and how you gain access depends on the make, model and year. I hope this helps you.

^^ He says it's a relay. Where is that relay located? In one of the fuse boxes, right?
