Dave.
I found it to be a hassle. Triumph doesn't make that job easy, to plug into your audio and power cables. And you will have to buy a power cable from Triumph to use the connector.

I think you will find you have to totally remove the fairing and more to complete the job. And then get into under the windshecreen to run the cables.

This is assuming you wish to do the job correct so the GPS is powered and charged by the bikes battery, and have the GPS sound come out of the bike's audio system. There are several threads here in this forum that should be helpful.

But don't expect it to be an easy fast job and we can blame Triumph for that by them putting the connectors where they did, well below the left mirror, instead of up by where the GPS unit will be located.

If you're going to add Adventure Crash bars, that will be a great time to do both jobs at once, as the faring will be completely off.  That's when I wired in my GPS.

You just need to remove the front faring and dismantle  consul.

OIC. That's sounds quite a bit easier if you can see and work with both cables after the console is removed. But I was installing the Adventure Bars anyway, so I had it all apart when I wired in my GPS. I also did my dual horns and more during the same time, as everything is easier when the fairing is completely off.

Roger, couldn't find it cheaper than Global GPS. Have a look.

I'm not too fussed about tackling the job, I've got a decent mechanical head on my shoulders.  :156:

Just ordered my Zumo from Global GPS and I couldn't find it any cheaper, still expensive and have opted for lifetime map updates so will keep it for my lifetime now, why is it motorbike Sat Nav's are so expensive.

Anyway the dealer has offered to wire it in for  me while they fit all my accessories which include the sat nav bracket which apparently requires a front end strip anyway.

2 week and 1 day before delivery and counting.
