    Din/USB connector

    Hi everyone, just a heads up really as plans firm up for those planning great escapes  :047:

    Rider mount on the way so time to review possible connections  :084:. For me, standard TomTom USB cable into a DIN/USB plug and into the DIN sockect provided right/front the Multi and preferably right angled and compact as not much space there. Quick search on the net and the Optimate gizmo with 2  :062: USB ports seemed to fill the bill so went for it, but not everything is as it seems  :034:

    This is a charger in it's own right and not a simple adapter. The DIN port on the Multi is switched so when I switched the IGN ON to check the as-yet unmounted GPS unit and, nothing  :027:. A further check reveals the USB outlet of the Optimate is OFF until the battery voltage rises above  12.4v - so GPS planning has to be done with the engine running which is not so cool or by switching the GPS on manually before starting the engine which is also not so cool :006:.
    OK, no big deal and there is a solution to every problem but what I should have bought was a simple adapter and not a charger. I can switch the GPS on manually of course but what I really wanted was just GPS ON/OFF with the IGN ON/OFF.

    Safe riding and dry roads everyone  :152:

    You are right of course and that will probably be the permanent job in the future thanks, but at this moment I was just pointing out the minor inconvenience of using the din socket with a charger and not an adapter rather than comparing the connection possibilities  :002:

    Hi everyone. I hope you have all had a good year with lots of pleasure on the bike(s).
    For my part yes, a very good year. The 950s continues to please on short or long trips, solo or two-up. Best trip was just south of Cherbourg to Carcassonne (S of France) and back over a week with her and luggage. The Multi took it all, easy peasy, fast or slow, and so comfortable for both of us  :047:
    OK, the follow on to my rather old post.
    With restoring my Darmah and life in general getting in the way, now is the time to make permanent my TomTom wiring.
    I intend to use either the Fog Light (switchable, preferred) loom connection or the dedicated GPS connection.
    I assume they are Female so I am considering using a sort of fitment kit for something else which I will attach to the TomTom wires then just plug into (providing it's female) the Loom, something like this:

    If anyone has been down this road I would welcome advice, thanks.

    I've got the Optimate badge one. Bought it to power my Go-Pro camera which i use as a dash cam.

    A friend who has a near new 950S has tried a number of Din/Hella USB  plugs in the socket. Every one of them has worked happily in the car or on a previous bike.
    Every one blew the 10amp fuse when a phone was plugged in to charge it.

    Ducati dealership insisted the only solution is to use the Ducati one (or R&G if you must!).

    Why?

    Something must be different in the Ducati socked making an ordinary plug causing a short which of course burns out the fuse.
    I don't see why else a plug/USB adapter can draw more than 10Amp. 
    Het kan altijd platter...
