    Doug,

    Derek from Touratech confirmed that as well and I ordered the silver locking mounting kit for my bike. Thanks!

    I checked the BMW microfiche for a part number for that black plastic piece centered on the handlebars that the Zumo base attaches to and couldn't find anything. I just sent an email to Rose Marston at Max BMW in North Hampton, NH where that piece was installed in March of 2009 when I picked the bike up. I'm sure she'll get back to me with the info and I'll pass that along right away.

    Have a great day and ride safely!

    Best,

    Peter

Obviously the GPS and detector will go on the switched terminals of the panel, and the case will go on an unswitched terminal. Recommendations for the fuse panel (I'm thinking a Centech), where to mount it, and where the heck is the best place to tap the switched lead, given the CanBus?
    Only recommendation I can give is for the fuse panel. I have three Fuzeblock units mounted on three different bikes. Six available slots and you can chose how many are switched or unswitched. Its a bit taller than the Centec, but the relay is built into it. Just picked up a new to me R850R, and am going to be ordering another one for it. And I usually stick the GPS on 'unswitched'. That way I can have it hooked up to the bike and program it without having to switch on the key.

    Doug,

    Did you ever end up getting the GPS bracket from Max's for your bike? If so, how did the install go? I just received my 665 yesterday and I'm about to start the removal and install of the new GPS. Where did you grab your power from for the new unit? I may just run a line back to my Centech and go that route. Too bad Garmin ended up with a whole new wiring harness for the 665. More work = more aggravation!

    Ride safely!

    Not yet. After that discussion, I ran into a mechanical issue with the GT. See my thread on my alternator failure. I get the bike back later today (finally), so I can get back to the GPS stuff now...

    I bought a Centech
    Mounted it under the seat
    Hard-wired to the battery
    Used the accessory socket lead to trigger the relay

    Used it to install:
    A hard-wired, always-on accessory socket next to the stock one
    A second hard-wired, always-on accessory plug (tucks under the seat)
    Power for a Nuvi 550

    Zero issues

    How did you run the cables from the seat area up to the battery? That seems like a real pain getting them up there... I just received my CenTech panel and cables, but haven't mounted it yet, as I'm still figuring out the best spot for it.

    To me it is real easy for the centech to be up front over the battery.

    If you got the relay trigger you can mount that onto the ABS shelf

    And the trigger is off of the courtesy light - instant off and on.
