GPS fitting
« on: March 17, 2017, 08:53:22 AM »
After much consideration ended up joining Garmin wires to rear of front power socket.
Garmin supply box just fits on top of the rh tank tongue near headlight bulb. I used sticky backed velcro.
all wires tucked under clocks on top of headlamps.
Bought a great hi-level bracket from engimoto.it
all done and dusted.
there's a great video on YouTube showing how to remove body panels on 1200 multi.

all sounds simple - took me all day :087:

 I spent the day looking for the connection. there isn't one on the 950 (that I could find) that's why I used the power socket. I'm now an expert on removing panels.  :173:

Am I right in saying the gap between dash ( if you want a clear view ) and the screen isn't big enough for a Zumo 595LM if you use the offical Ducati mount ?

Looks snug with a 660LM in the pics.
