Hard Wiring GPS?

I'm a brand new owner of an AT and need some help in getting my GPS hard wired into the electrical system.

I've been reading and believe there is an accessory plug behind the left fairing, right? Does it come on with the ignition? If so what type of plug do I need?

Thanks!

Brian

You would need the four way connector shown here at Rugged Roads. http://ruggedroads.co.uk/epages/00cb...oducts/SU4P090 and would have to crimp your Sat Nav cables to the connector. Yes, it does power on with the ignition.

This might not be the best use of this power source though. You can buy the Honda 12V socket and this is where it plugs in to with no modifications. You can also buy a Honda splitter cable that splits this power source into two to power a 2nd item, for instance daytime running lights. Again, both on the RR website, part numbers 08U70MJPG50 and 08U74MJPG50.

What you might want to do is use a power block from https://www.easternbeaver.com/Main/main.html lots of Africa Twin specific details and widely acclaimed on this forum (and others). Just use the forum search bar for Eastern Beaver and you will see loads of threads about it and similar products.

How did you get to the connector behind the fairing? What needs to be removed?
Cheers

This video shows you how to disassemble the front fairing.


This second video shows how to access the power connection

I hard wired mine too but used a PDM60 fuse block for a couple of reasons one no fuses to carry two programable lines and the one thing I really liked was the ability to have a power delay off feature got my GPS line set at two minutes... nice for gas stops or if you gotta get something out of your panniers/top box and its locked - no restating the GPS _...

If you want a really cool set for wiring items to your bike, look into Eastern Beaver. The guy is from Japan but sells a lot of neat additions for this bike. The fuse block is worth every penny!!

Which wire did you tap into for the gray ignition wire?
