Is there a bus to wire this GPS to?
« on: May 03, 2013, 01:40:51 PM »
Most of my experience with running electronic wiring is marine and not motorcycle.    Hence, I'm used to wiring directly to a fused bus and not to a battery, even if a fuse is in-line of the component being installed.

I just bought this unit off of ebay for my garmin nuvi 550. (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Garmin-Nuvi-500-550-Zumo-220-Motorcycle-Cradle-Hardwire-Power-Cable-/160892046216?pt=GPS_Holders_Mounts&hash=item2575e9cb88)

Where is the bus?    I don't have a technical guide for the Trophy, and just need some guidance.

Similarly, I have a heated jacket unit from First-Gear which has an electrical unit as well.   Again - personal phobias about having  spaghetti hanging off a battery.   Where to wire?

Thanks
Jordan

There is a power socket specifically designed for a GPS unit which can be found behind the left hand signal pod. There are instructions on this forum which guide you through the fitting. For the heated clothing you will need to either wire direct to the battery but fitting an appropriate sized fuse or connecting into one of the 12v power sockets on the bike itself, there is one by your left knee when riding, one on the left side just below the pillion seat and one in the stowage box in the fairing. If you have an optimate lead fitted you could use that also but you would need to have an additional fuse wired in.
Might as well as wish we had.

I use the socket below left knee.  Did think about optimate connector straight to battery that would then be very easy to get at.  Next winter I hope  :001: with this weather

I did a search for the GPS connector instructions from Trophy.    I don't see any instructions on how to remove the mirror housing to get at the connectors.  There are apparently power cords in there for this purpose.    Can someone provide guidance on how to correctly remove this mirror housing?

Thanks

 There are instructions on this forum.  It is relatively easy in a nutshell.  Pull the mirrors from the outside edges and they hinge back.  Then you can get at back of indicator and cover.  As I say full instructions on this forum.

Yes it is quite Amazing just 'adjust' the mirrors to point in towards the bike and there is a gap on the outsides that you can get your fingers behind and just pull and the mirrors hinge in.  The mechanism is indented so they click back into place.

Here are the instructions, just don't worry about the XM stuff unless you are going to subscribe to that service which I think is only available in the USA.
