    I use a Fuzeblock FZ1. Switched power comes from the topbox feed and main power direct from the battery.
    Have the heated gear coming off the switched side. Single outlet handles my jacket, gloves and boots, can't remember what fuse I have on that circuit but its easy enough to work out what you need.
    Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

    thanks for your feedback.

    the Healtech thunderbox seems popular too, from what I've read so far.

    My satnav bracket is powered by the accessory socket by my left knee.  On my 2013 I had to add this myself (it was an option) but it may be there already on yours.  The cable is neatly clipped with cable ties and is more or less invisible, just comes up with the other cables and wires to the bars.

    Heated vest I power from a lead attached directly to the battery terminals and fed up at the front of the seat.  The lead is fused on the positive side, but doesnít need to be switched supply as I canít leave it connected anyway - the vest leaves the bike when I do.

    Probably neater ways of doing these things but both satnav and vest work just fine for me.
