No battery/alternator problems to date 6,600 miles on the R.

One dead battery once but that was because stupid me left the heated grips on one morning after riding into work.

A navigation unit isn't going to kill your battery. I promise.
I have similar, just not a wimpy heated grip

P.S. Were you around way back when a guy dared to ask if anyone had done this? He got an all out attack from the forum, how dare do something like that to a thoroughbred race bike. As for me, they're on my Beemer, so I ride it in the winter lol.

good luck
Ps. It may even use the same connector as your other ducati
Thats exactly what i wanted to try out before blowing the fuse while testing the current. That particular plug has got 4 wires...i only need two..which 2 do i need to use (which ones are + and ground)?
Also, do you know if this plug has 12v upon ingition, or is there always a current present even when the bike is turend off?

The 4 wire plug has a switched 12v and ground. The switched wire actually stays on for a short amount of time after you turn off the key.

Do you have a battery tender? Why not add to it?
I mainly use my iphone when I travel, so I bought SAE to USB cable. Here


Or if you need something that requires a cigarette socket, get this.

Both of those will be fused protected.

Add ram mount to hold your device for a clean look.

The problem with the cigarette socket (and to a lesser extent the USB connector) is that both are suceptible to coming loose from vibration.

Use a Powerlet socket (sometimes called a "BMW-type Socket") which has a positive locking ring in it so your plug-in doesn't back out under vibration. They're standard connectors on BMW and Triumph and have sockets/adaptors/cables to fit any device out there. I power/charge both my cell phone and GPS on the Triumph with them.

I got it working...
As described, i used the GPS plug. I still had one of those turn signal harnesses that was used with the TSB881 (left switch not working) left over. So i cut the appropriate plug and wires of that harness off, and used the red and black wire of that plug for my GPS cable (I disconnected the grey and green wire from that plug)

Before reinstalling the upper left fairing piece back onto the bike, i routed the GPS cable as shown in the pic.

works perfect...when i don't need the GPS, I can simply unplug it and tuck the GPS cable under that left fairing piece until its hidden all the way.

The plug has 12v upon ignition. I first thought that it has a static 12v current, but it takes appr. 1 minute after shutting the bike off before the current cuts out (you can hear a "click" on the bike..then the power shuts off on the plug).

I Ride: Panigale 1299 (base) Panigale 1199 sold, Multi pikes peak sold, Scrambler Icon,use of MT09+Gsxr750
I have Ctek battery tender lead, they make a c-trek cig socket and that powers my zumo, which I have in an oxford sat Nav strap on bag.
Was trying to find 12v on the MT07 for sat Nav yesterday, horn no good as only 12v when activated, opted for front left indicator.
