 I did try it from a switched source but found it a right royal pia when I stop and want to check a distance or road number. They draw so little current that it hasn't caused a problem. Heated grips are another matter  :015:  :2: .

Hi, apologies for piggy backing your thread but I didn't want to start another for what is a related subject.  I'm about to fit a Tom Tom 450 to a Mk 3.  Can anyone identify for me a suitable part of the loom for the + and similar for the - .  I'm not electrical genius and don't want to end up faffing around if I could go straight to them.

Thanks,

John

look at this post, there are 2 places to take aux power from, but you need the relay, if you dont want to do it that way just take a live from the horn and a wire to any earth
