2012 1200 SPORT GPS INSTALL
« on: April 18, 2021, 01:28:29 AM »
Hey guys

Im about to install my tom tom gps on my new 1200 i was lazy when i fitted the gps on my r1200gs but id like to do it in a way where it loses all power when the keys turn off
anyway my question is there a wire that isnt in the main harness used for this purpose ? the bike has no kms pretty much and the bike is very special to me so i dont want to go splicing into the harness if i dont have to.
thanks

Should be a gps intended plug under the tank, front left side (while seated) of the steering head, similar to the Norge. You can buy a plug-in from BMW or Mercedes (think it is a fog light plug)  that plugs straight on or do what many do and cut the end off and wire in a more standard plug.

I used this to power my GPS, USB power plug and my auxiliary driving lights in the front.

Someone will have a pic I'm sure but the plug has a green center if I remember.

If there isn't a way to tie into the harness then use a micro-relay triggered off a switched circuit OR, put a waterproof switch on the power line.

As Bulldog mentioned, there should be a plug under the front of the tank just for this. It is switched power.

Another option is to tap into the pilot light in the headlight. That has power regardless of high or low beam, and of course is also switched.
