    I tried to search but couldn't find anything.

    I was wondering how to wire the powered AMPS mount into my R1100GS.

    Thanks,

    I usually hook directly to the battery terminals. I like to have the gps stay on when I shut the bike off to keep tracks in one segment. I don't worry about the gps killing the battery since I never leave it on the mount when I'm not using the bike.

    I was wondering if this was the best way. I'll do it. I finally got my ball mount so I'm ready to try and hook it up.
