    I'm trying to install a GSM/GPS tracker on a BMW F800ST 2008.

    Tracker GPS303g model: http://www.coban.net/html/2013/12/26...346071832.html

    The wiring is rather complex since it's for cars as well, but I think I'll use only:
    • Power +- (Red and Black) - connected directly to the battery
    • Alarm siren (Pink) - connected to the motorcycle horn
    • ACC (White) - connected to the ignition (?? not sure where ??)
    My questions are:
    • Where can I connect the ACC? Maybe to the headlights line would work since the headlights go on after the ignition is started (don't know where this is though)? Or is there a better place?
    • If anyone has connected anything to the horn, could use some pointers where this connection can be made.
    Any information would be appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Can't hep much since I don't know how things are wired on the BMW but I'd get the ACC connection from the horn's switch hot wire. That's where I got the power for all the extra lights on my Honda.
