I bought a cheap cigarette lighter power plug off ebay for about $8 shipped and wired that in. Now I still have the Garmin power cord for the truck and this one can stay on the bike all the time. I like having the full size power plug for charging MP3 players, Cell phones and using my tire pump when needed, so that stays. Both plugs are wired to the all time 10Amp fused power leads under the dash and routed behind the headlight. I drilled a hole in the base of the Ram mount and threaded the power cord through that.

The oval plug is for my heated gear and battery charger.

So why did that one come out small like I wanted? Hmmm..
where did you get the dashmount SAE(oval) plug??

I know that you believe that you understand what you think I said but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
