    Sounds like a good plan Lee. 

    Once you connect it up and get power to your Sat Nav for the first time, you'll be well chuffed with yourself, esp. if you are not used to all things "electrickery".

    And of course then you'll realise you've probably been 'overthinking' the whole darn thing. (welcome to my world  :015:)

    Cheers...Tony

    I'm probably a tad too far away to make it viable to send you the bits to make this, but do holler if you get really stuck.  :038:

    Hi Lee
    Not the cheapest way to buy them but the likes of Halfords do those little 'Handy Packs' with small quantities of electrical terminals in if you can't get any elsewhere.
    Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

    Another  thank you for this thread. Took a bit longer than 15 min tho ! :003:
    Finding a way to secure the excess cables supplied with the mount took more time than the wiring.
    Cheers

    Yep, there's another thread regarding the use of an unused connector block under the pillion seat.
    I've connected my TomTom to this.
    Why doesn't Triumph provide an outlet around the headlamp for sat nav hook-up?
    Let's face it, most people would want this.
    BMW provides such a connection, but then again BMWs do have CANbus  :004:.

    If you're wondering what is and what CANbus does, here is an explanation of the BMW system.

    For everybody, who like me, would like to power GPS unit, using switched +12 from horn on 2018 and newer model - NOT WORKING.

    Find  it out by testing, and letter get confirmation on Hynes Manual electrical diagram:
    - pre 2018 models have horn wired +12 from ECU and Ground is coming throw the horn switch.
    - 2018+ models, have fix ground and +12 is connected via horn relay, which is operated via horn switch.

    So, for wiring GPS on 2018+ Tiger models, other options have to be found.
