I like having the SAE plug though because when I don't need to power the gps, I can hook up a Battery Tender to the bike.
New to the world of GPS and decided to start with the Montana. Very grateful for this thread but DAMN there's a lot to learn!
Re. switching between bikes. Anything bad to say about using a Powerlet connector instead of the SAE plug here? This would be the simpliest solution for me but after reading about the Montana's sensitivity to current, wondering if vibration/movement within this type of connection would cause any issues.
