    I am putting a 60CS onto my F800GS, and I found a Garmin hardwire cable. It has the obvious red and black wires, but it also has a white and a brown wire. The tag says the white and the brown are data wires. I put one on my 1150 Adv several years ago (it was replaced with a 1200 Adv), but I cannot recall what I did with the white and brown wires. I tried looking on Garmin's website, buy couln't find any directions, and the Garmin hardwire "kit" Touratech sells is slightly different as I cannot see these other two wires.

    I'm wondering if anyone else has used this cable, or if there is a pictorial step by step around.

    brown and white are data - just wrap them with some tape or shrink tube and secure them out of the way.
