Hey guys and gals....
Last week I have picked up a new GPS for my brand-new bike.
Instead of spending a small fortune on the zumo series, I got this nice big Garmin Nuvi 7" GPS and a RAM Mount Case.
Sometime last week I have also asked you guys how to wire the thing and today I can happily report that I have finished the wiring.
I'm still waiting for a USB extension to have the power and traffic antenna connected, but the main connections are all done.
I had to modify the GPS to get the audio out, but if you are OK with using soldering iron and playing with electronics, then this is not a big deal.
I have also made the audio cable that connects from the GPS to the connectors inside the fairing.
Here are few pics...
Drilled a small hole in the back of the GPS to run the audio cable out of the GPS.
Soldered three audio cables directly to the speaker terminal... easier than splicing those tiny wires.
Test before closing the GPS
Made this audio cable to connect inside the fairing... It's pretty much same thing liked the one you can buy from the Kawasaki, but homemade
The two wires connect behind GPS so that I can remove it if I need to.
Tomorrow I will take some pics to show you what I did with the power, But in the nutshell, I have placed a new cig lighter socket in the left storage compartment and connected the original charger with traffic antenna there.
This way if I ever want to change it is not modified in any way.
That's it for now folks
Have a good one.
