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.
Ah - but the sidelight is at the correct end of the bike. FWIW Bulldog did mine as a freebie when I got the bike (because I bought the T GPS bracket). They spliced it into the sidelight wires.

After removing the 2 screws it just pulls rearwards, you can see the 2 grommets it fits to in the picture

Isn't the piggy back horn connection favourite for the folk that really want a switched live?

Is there a reason for wanting a switched live? I can't think of any time I would leave my sat-nav on the bike other than when it's in use. Even at a fuel stop I take it with me when I go to pay. The docking station is plugged into the socket with Din plug, if the sat-nav is not fitted it's not taking current. Am I missing something? Been doing it this way for past 12 months with no probs.

Probably just something people feel more comfortable with (me too). After all, if it was permanent live, then any passing biker with a Zumo could slot it into your bike and get it charged for free!  :156:

The Triumph T1050 manual actually recommends using permanent live (but then they have a choice of 2 connectors behind the headlamp), the theory being that you can plan routes, do searches, etc, on the bike without having to switch the igntion on (and have the headlamp drain the battery).

Ha, yeah brill.

I never read of anybody else doing my simple fix of using a Din plug on the docking station.

I decided to take the GPSs power from battery because Garmins original cable lenght was suitable for that. BUT: have do that twice; old cable Ive used few years seems to be broken (on/off when you turn it near GPS dock).

Guys,
Maybe I've missed something but I could not find info about 2013-2015 TS model and its optional plugs for power supply.
so, do you know if this model has:
1. plug under the headlamp?
2. plug under the frame, left side?
3. which of these plugs are continously powered, which are not?

- Plug under the headlamp, 3-pin, switched live, meant really for the heated grips (though I use it also for the GPS).
- Plug under the frame, coiled up next to the air filter box (blue tape), 2-pin, permanent live, meant for an accessory socket left side,but can be used for GPS if you prefer.
- Plug in tail, 3 pin, switched live, but needs the accessory relay in place also, meant for wired top box.

Your choice.

Hi Paullie, what's this ^^^ one look like, wire colour/plug, I wasn't aware of this.

I just got a spare docking station so I don't have to swap the original onto whichever bike I'm using.  I've hard wired it to the horn so it's a  switched live.
