    Hi all

    Looking to add my TomTom spaznav to my new T100. Any recommendations for a switched live in the headlight bezel I can run the cables to? I'd rather not run the leads under the tank to the battery.

    Under the seat is a useless place for the USB connector imo but its assembly can be unplugged from the bike harness, so what I did was to unplug it, cut the cable then extend it to run under the tank and up to the instruments. The USB socket is now on a homemade bracket behind the fly screen, handy for the (in my case) iPhone holder.

    Spot on Crispey. One piggy back spade on the switched live and a ring terminal on the bracket - the horn was a perfect place to get my power supply. No more charging for half a day in the car so I can use it on the bike - hoorah!

    I wimped out of the sidelight option when I saw how cramped it was inside the bezel :no_mouth:

    Re-using this thread rather than start a new one:
    Just picked up my 2017 T120 and bought a new TomTom 550 for it. I had assumed one should run wiring under the tank to the seat and use some feed off the fuse box. My question was, how does one get the cables under the tank? without taking it off!!
    But, if its ok to run the satnav off the horn 12v feed that sounds easier I guess? Anything to take note of in order to access the horn i.e. undoing the assembly on the handlebar etc?
