I used to have mine hooked to canbus and had no problems. I moved it to battery just so it wouldn't shut down when I took a break. Either way they don't drain my battery even when it sits.

I am using the same 12V --> 5V kit that you show in the picture.

All:
As far as current draw with no device connected, I have not measured it (I'll do that next time I have the "tank" lid off), but my guess is that it is only a few milliamps, barely more than the on-board clock draws so I would not expect it to drain the battery even if left attached for a month or more with no use.

Hmmmm. Mysterious. It certainly doesn't make sense to me since the GPS does get the signal to power off, which indicates the CANBUS is shutting the circuit off. The only thing I can think of is that I've got something wired wrong that's resulting on the CANBUS either leaving some other circuit on that's draining the battery or that the circuit isn't totally off for some reason.

Was there any trick to wiring up the 12v -> 5v brick? It's been a while since I did it but I think I just plugged it in and found the positive and the ground wires and then clipped off the third one.

Dave.

I dont really like the idea of my gps being mounted on steering bar. I'm looking for a mount just above cockpit, w/o changing whole setup (Mirage is not an option).

Found something interesting for 1150 GS here: http://www.migsel.com/store/index.ph...od&productId=6

Anyone seen something similiar for F8GS ? Otherwise I would have to make it myself

Nippy Normans, see here for £12





They're great for trapping wasps.... I once had a wasp fly in their whilst cruising down the motorway. It created a mini wind trap that it couldn't fly out of. I carried that little fella for about 10 miles, LOL!

Thanks!

I should'a known!!!
We don't have NN on our side of the pond, I'm in the US.
Is it a NN-mfg product or does it perhaps have a vendor name other than "Made in China"

It has a 'SatNavGear' Logo on it but the NN part number is WUN-8600812... so it might be a Wunderlich item???

I had a nuvi 550 and was thinking of connecting it to the accessory socket.
Question is can i just hard wire the usb cable to a dim socket that i bought and connect to my nuvi?
I know that the socket is running on 12v, will my gps get spoil?
