They do not.

As I have several different GPS units, I did something to make it easier to swap out the wiring. I added insulated crimp-on spade connectors to the GPS power cords and to the wires on the bike that I connect them to. Now, all I have to do is pop off the side panel to access them and disconnect or connect the one I want.

Hardware and auto part stores carry these things along with the crimping pliers if you need them. Lowe's had a really good price on small boxes of them the last time I needed some.
