For a trip to Italy, I would want it routed through the bodywork. There is no room for the Garmin Power Adaptor to plug straight in, so I made a little 6" extension lead.
I also run electric gloves from that outlet since I don't agree with muffs.
Little thermometer on the dash behind it.
Also Givi Airflow screen - much better than Honda set-up.
I have a Garmin Nuvi and intend soldering a mono female jack directly onto the speaker so I can then wear a mono earpiece and hear the instructions without glancing. Hope it works.
