    Buck that's the one, but you can get a 'Y' lead that has a plug and socket so once you plug in you still have another spare socket for any other accessory you might need a 12v feed for. The third leg is a pair of connectors to run your Garmin cable to. I have had a look but can't find the part number for it. I will look in the garage tomorrow to see if I've still got the box.

    That's great and may be a consideration for others. I think though that the redundant SAE tether is the connection point that I'll use for now as the after market solution I have fits that.

    I use an Optimate USB connector that I had on my XR1200 and my SuperGlide, works well and has built in circuit protection.1EB9038D-6AA8-4ED2-80E1-A77669354856.jpg

    I have one of the cables shown by xbpod. It plugs into the CAN bus socket gives another CAN bus socket and you crimp your power leads in the middle as shown.
    If you would like to take it off my hands just give me a shout.

    I use TomTom Rider and it was supplied with a ram mount which is excellent. I took a 12 volt feed from the headlight so is only on when ignition is on. In the standard headlamp is a position lamp that uses 4mm spade terminals so I used piggy back terminals that will allow me to easily remove them without mucking up existing wiring.

    OK...as an update

    for those with Garmin Nuvi satnavs (2599 LTD series) the usb device linked to earlier won't work...Garmin have thoughtfully included firmware that doesn't recognise any charging device that isn't precisely compatible with their firmware charging specifications. How do I know this? Because I spent several hours wiring up a permanent solution, including lifting the tank to route the cables etc only to find an NTC fault code came up in the battery sub menu (accessed if you press and hold the battery icon on Garmins). It initially charged, then decided it didn't much like it, then spat its dummy out of its mouth and toys out of its pram

    This is the little device that WON'T work with Garmin Nuvi devices but WILL work with mobile phones etc:




    The solution was to strip the male automotive connector from the end of an old optimate charger that I never use, solder the wires to an old cigarette plug socket which came from another old charger so that I had a lead about 2ft long that connects to my tender lead (to automotive block type connector) used to connect to the battery conditioner which I leave permanently on the bike. The cigarette socket was then placed inside my left pannier so that I can hook up one of my official garmin chargers (with or without built in FM traffic data antenna) and the charger cable routed under the petrol tank, through the cable guide on the left fork and up into the satnav holder, job done. Pretty annoyed that the usb charger which I paid £12 for (which was advertised as a suitable charger) didn't work with the Garmin. If anyone wants it, it's new, used once to test, in the box and yours for a tenner posted.
