    Phone mount/Sat Nav Wiring Removal

    My TTSE came with the Garmin Sat Nav mount - the previous owner kept the ZUMO, so I've decided not to buy one but to repurpose the mount for my phone.

    The mount uses a standard plate with an AMPS layout - this defines the size and bolt hole location, I already had a phone holder for my road bike made by a company called ARKON and this has a dual T method of clipping on to it's mount. ARKON make loads of different mounts - so I picked a AMPS to Dual T adapter (part number RMSAMPS2T) - for about £20 and this will mount my phone on the sat nav mount with the added benefit of being able to raise it up a little to completely clear the displays on the dash.

    I now need to remove the sat nav wiring - but I'm thinking of just storing it in the fairing somewhere in case I do pick up a ZUMO at some point - so the question is, how easy is it to relocate the sat nav wiring back in to the fairing for safe keeping?

    I'll post pictures when I get it all fitted.

    I was going to post against the Sat Nav post - but it warned me that it hadn't been posted on for over 120 days so to consider a new topic - please move as appropriate.

    you can't buy happiness but you can buy a motorcycle - which is the same thing :-)

    you can get at some of the connections by removing the LHS indicator and panel but it depends if they relocated any of the wiring when fitting.  It is a bit of a fiddle to find.  Apart from that you have to remove the instrument panel (it comes off back towards the rider) and then you can access everything.  There are a lot of screws though and some hard to find.  There is a write up in the How To Section.  I fitted my wiring when I first got the bike but that was a long time ago now??

    Thanks John348 - I've read the 13 pages of how to, but more specifically wondering if there is room to store the electrical connections or do they have to be removed completely.

    There's plenty of room behind and slightly below the dash.  Lots of places to roll up wiring and zip-tie to hold in place (use 2 or 3 so that you don't have to go back in).

    .... Just to add :

    When you remove the Garmin Sat Nav cradle from the Bracket,
    wou will find the wiring harness is not detachable from the Cradle,
    so you would have to roll up the harness with the Cradle and stow it all ....

    The Cradle ( when new ) is supplied with a "Weather Cover", that clips on where
    the Sat Nav would go, to protect the electrical contacts from the effects of rain
    and dirt etc, when the Sat Nav is not being used.

    If you have that cover - put it in place before stowing the cradle & wiring,
    or if you don't have it - tape over the electrical connections to help prevent corrosion  :028:

    If you wanted to get a replacement cover, you would need to know which Cradle it is - see below.



    Here's a Link for Garmin UK who sell the Zumo 595 Weather Cover for GBP £4.99 :

    Mount Weather Cover Zumo 595
    ( They don't seem to list one for the older 600 / 660 Model ).

    Cheers  :821:

    Thanks for the input guys - I finally bolted it all back together today and I'm pleased with the final result.

    It wasn't as easy as I thought it was going to be as the sat nav wiring disappeared in behind the left hand fairing panel and I'm not up for removing that and the crash bars just yet, so I pulled all the wiring down to the storage box, slipping the actual mount part with it's weather cover on up inside the inner edge of the storage box - with a bit of double sided tape for good measure!

    I must say - really well put together bike from what I've seen so far and I've only got 2 spare screws left over  :008:

    One thing I couldn't do was remove the trim piece from the wiring that sits under the mount - but when I've got an evening spare I'll pull the fairing panel and remove it.

    If you remove the Glove Box first,
    then flip the left mirror out,
    ( Pull the outer edge towards the rear of the bike )
    you can unclip the wiring plug for the Indicator -
     by depressing  the silver coloured spring retainer,
    then undo the large headed screw to free the Indicator -
    when that is removed it reveals the single securing screw
    for the painted mirror surround panel.
    After removing that screw pull the panel towards the front
    of the Trophy to disengage itís peg from a rubber grommet.

    From there you should be able to access the remainder of the Garmin
    Cradle wiring without having to remove the complete Fairing !  :028:

    Cheers  :821:
