GPS Installation
« on: November 18, 2014, 08:48:14 pm »
I have purchased a 2014 TTSE (in addition to my 2013 Tiger and a 2008 H-D Ultra Classic).  I want to wire my RAM mount for my GPS to a hot wire that is hot when the key is on but the engine is not running.  Hopefully, one that is easy to get to.  Any suggestions?

Hi there....

If you search through the audio and sat Nav threads you will find several on installing a GPS.

The best place to get power from is the dedicated clean power connection down behind the left hand fairing which is also where you will find the audio in socket to get your GPS output to the bike audio system

There is a GPS power cable as well as a GPS audio cable under the left side of the fairing. It will provide power when the engine is not running. When ignition is switched off, the GPS battery takes over until the 30 second timeout.

There is a special Triumph power cable that connects to the TTSE power cable. If you pay extra for the complete kit, you get a manual for the wrong bike as well as a few tie wraps that most people seem to have anyway. A9938122 And costs more (for nothing, IMO)

I forgot to mention--IMO, there is not much that is easy to get to in the TTSE. Most work seems to require removing the fairing--so do everything you might want to do under the fairing at the same time, such as add crash bars or louder dual horns, gps connections or whatever.

You can also wire directly to the battery which is easy to get to, to the right of the handle bar.

I connected directly to the battery & put a RAM mount in the right handle bar. There is a pre-drilled, threaded hole to screw it into. Power is on full time which is not a big deal to me. If I park someplace I just pop off the GPS & put it into the trunk. I never leave it in the Garmin cradle since it is too easy for someone to lift.

I wired mine to the back of the cigarette lighter in the glove box.  This means it only runs when the engine is running but that is fine for me.  To be fair this was only becasue I wired it before removing the LHS to get to the audio and power connector but as it works well for me I decided to leave it there even when I found the connector. 

All this means is to lift out the glove box and you can then easily get to the back of the connector and easy to tidy the wires up in the space underneath and in front.

I also have a RAM mount (but on the LHS) using the pre drilled mirror hole but for a camera.  I feed the power cable up the front of the fork legs as there are some nice rubbery clips to hold them and keep them out of the way when turning the handlebars.

I never remove mine--did you know about this GPS lock?
