Lambert,
Thanks for the quick response. One more question. On the Nav V I assume you only used 2 of the 3 wires. Mine has red, black and purple. My assumption is that the red is +,
the black is - and the purple is Canbus. So the Duc will only use + and - .
Its been a while but yes if I remember correctly you would be right in your assumption. The cradle only needed the power pair fed directly from the plug on the Duc.

Thanks again. Got it wired up and powered up. Worked perfectly.

Recently fitted a TomTom Rider 550. A very nice bit of kit but installation so much easier having learnt about the GPS wiring preinstalled. Also the info removing the various plastic parts to access the thing. Don't like to think how much time I'd have wasted otherwise.
As to where I installed it I used the provided Ram mount and put it on the left handlebar. Without interfering in any way with the steering or fouling the screen it places the display at the same height as the main display and I can see everything I want simultaneously. I didn't fancy putting it above the display. Partly this is due to the probably idiosyncratic way in which I use the GPS.

So far I've used it for about 300 miles worth of riding. Things I like: the display is good even in bright sunshine. I can use the touchscreen using ordinary biking gloves. The display is clear and does not suffer from vibration. It is quite accurate on advising the speed limit in any given area. The various options offered in terms of route seem pretty good. It has enabled me to get to unfamiliar places without any hassle.

Things I don't like: the easiest way to use it is to interface with a phone with the TomTom app. Sometimes the route offered is neither the shortest or quickest.

Having said that it's still early days and on the whole I rate it.
