Thanks for the information- very helpful

I can't help thinking that a 12v cigarette lighter socket would be more use for more things

I got one of these for my Hella port. You can get them as a flat fit too, to sit up by the instrument cluster. 1 x Cigarette and 2 x USB.

Ok, thanks for the info you all! :028:
(When I had a H-D Electra Glide Classis (i.e. time before Rocket and time before my wife had a bike of her own and touring two-up) I took feed for GPS from Harleys original cigarrette - or should I say cigar - lighter (down on left in batwing fairing)  :001:

Sorry to disappoint, Triumph decided to remove the GPS plug on the latest TS as the bike has a USB connector under seat????  Anyway, most of us have taken the feed from the L/H sidelight wiring

Just replaced the Tiger with a newer sport model, and following many threads about powering the Sat Nav (gps). Timbox you mention taking a feed off the l/h side light, could you enlighten me on how you did this - sorry I'm a visual kinda guy - with a picture.
It's a real shame Triumph removed the plug under the headlights.

I believe the (switched 3-pin) plug for the heated grips is still there, so you could double up on that. But then if you're simply going to use a Scotchlock connector then you might as well just go for the sidelight connection.

But I understood that there's still at least one connector available under the tank. Doubtless Sean or Tim will correct me if I'm wrong.

I used the spare top box power connector in the tail as a sort of 'aux' power supply.
OK I had the relay and connectors sitting on my 'bits and bobs' shelf, but it's pretty easy, plug in the relay into the spare position, and a twin core wire up to the front with an Econoseal connector at each end.
I bought a couple of male/female Econoseal connectors so I could plug the GPS power supply into my new aux power lead.
Looks almost OEM!

I suggest to feed the GPS from the USB charger connector, located under the tank.

With a couple of 2-pin Sumitomo connectors, you can make a simple "T" between the wiring harness and the USB charger.

Many thanks guys for all the ideas.
 
Tim where did you run the earth to, couldn't make it out on your picture?

I'll have a look under the rear tail light this weekend to see what the rear connector's like, don't want to ditch the Rider 2 just because of this.

I'll put a virtual pint in the tavern for all
