I use a powerlet-to-coax adapter plugged into the power outlet on the left underseat side of the bike, going directly into the heated gear controller in a Warm-n-Safe jacket. The remote control unit (dual channel wireless heattroller) goes on top a RAM base that I quickly mount on one of the RAM balls I have on my handlebar clamp.

Triumph Aux Lights and Triumph Heated Grips - switches right next to the mirror mount. To the right of that is another light switch for the MotoLights I have mounted on the calipers in front. Then the Garmin mount.

Here you go.

Montana on the left hand side, dual wireless heat controller on the center/right. I position it leftward of the RAM mount so that it's closer to my left hand.

Thanks!

With the grips, are they directly wired or have a connector? if so What type?

Does anyone know if you can have numerous heated products operated by one controller. I'm wondering how they "daisy-chain" if any.

Hey that's clean! How do you like the Montana screen while riding? Also, can you elaborate on the wireless setup?? Thanks for the info

So far, I love the Montana. A true track-capable GPS that is readable in full sunlight. I usually run it at 80% brightness during the day and it's just about perfect. 50% at night gives me good readability without too much light output. I use the Garmin rugged mount and wire it to the front accessory socket for power.

As to the heated gear controller, here's the site that has a pretty good description of it:

http://www.warmnsafe.com/dual-remote...-heat-troller/

In essence, the receiver lives in the jacket in a little pocket designed especially for it. The controller is paired to the receiver and uses a CR2032 battery as its power source. It allows 0-100% control of two independent channels. I have run the two channels as jacket+gloves and pants+socks, or jacket+pants+socks and gloves separate. It all works great.

I'm interested to know what you end up going with to mount your phone. I am thinking of mounting my HTC Evo 3d on my tiger 955i, I can't afford any of these crazy freaking expensive motorcycle GPS units.

The power connector will be problematic. It is not designed for the excessive amount of vibration that it will see on a bike.

The Triumph Heated Grips and Auxiliary Lights are pre wired with connectors to the bike's wiring harness. I had them installed by my dealer / shop, but they aren't too difficult to do from what I've read.

I don't have much experience with heated gear / accessories being attached to one controller.

OEM Fog Switch

I keep looking at the cool LED illuminated Triumph switch for my heated grips and lamenting that I didn't also get the fog lights. I'm waiting to install a set of LED fogs and would like to hook it up to the OEM Triumph fog switch. Anyone tried this yet?

Yes. Not me, but I read where a guy bought the Triumph light switch & wiring to use with some other fog lights. It looks stock. He just looked up the part #s & got his dealer to order the parts.

^^^ Eeeeeexcellent.

Parts ren't too bad: I already have the heated grips, so the switch, mount, and screws are less than $40.
