Switched power for GPS on TEX

If the information is here someplace, the search function failed to harvest it.


I'm looking to put a Zumo 550 on my TEX with switched power. I understand the front socket is always powered, so that won't work. I may run the power from the tail light. Anybody have access to a wiring diagram so I know what wire to splice into?
Thanks.

There is a connector under the seat for the optional heated seat. It's only live while running.

The optional rear socket (located on the left side just behind the passenger seat) is switched, and only works with the engine running. If it hasn't been installed, the wiring harness should be accessible, or you could tap into it if it has.

Thanks. That's exactly the information I needed and have already wired the GPS. Hardest part was threading the power cord under the tank. (Hint, use a wire hanger.)
