Re: Best way to connect for +B & GND GPS

Probably the best place is directly off the positive side of the battery and make sure you use a inline fuse to prevent a potentual hazard. I have put a cigarete lighter socket under the seat to keep it away from moisture and ran the GPS wire all the way to the back of the bike. The connection under the seat is a good place to keep away from the outside elements.

Thanks Breimers,
That's just what I wanted to do. Did you use a stem mount?
