I Ride: 13' Hyperstrada (Artic White) & 07' KX250
Wiring in a 12v charger w/ GPS mounted

Hey everyone!

I am new around here and just picked up my 'strada last weekend. I already have put 400 miles on it and I am in love. Its a definitely a different machine than my Harley.

Anyways I hate to poke at a subject that has been talked about alot but I cant seem to find what I am looking for using the search tool. SO what I want to do is mount my Garmin GPS to my handlebars and have it plugged into the GPS plug in the headlight fairing (switched) and while also having a 12v for my phone. Specifically I want it to look like this set up pictured below. My only problem is I want that to be switched to. Could I possibly wire it into the empty Heated grip harness? (Living in AZ you dont really need them).

Thanks in advance for the help/suggestions.

-Marco

There was a write up on this. There's connector in the headlight housing that works. Keep searching.

Thanks for the reply! But I have not found what I am looking for just yet as most of the guys wire in the GPS to the connector in the housing and there phone get powered straight off the battery. I am trying to switched power to charge my phone so when I turn the bike off the charging port looses power.

The post right after my original post has the link to the thread. Looks pretty straightforward - good luck.

I guess I am not being very clear. I know that I can wire the GPS to the plug in the headlight, and I could plug in the extra 12v to the battery. BUT I am looking to see if anyone has attached the a 12v to charge the phone to a relay, or a switch(assuming that the GPS plug in the headlight is used)

You could wire the USB outlet in parallel with your GPS using the same power supply.

Both the GPS and USB outlet require 5v input. Your USB outlet probably has its own voltage regulator. If so, just wire it into the 12v power supply behind the headlight in parallel with your GPS.

Another option would be to buy one of these to plug into the (switched) outlet under your seat:
Amazon.com: Motorcycle DIN Hella Socket Dual USB Charger for Phone / GPS SatNav: Cell Phones & Accessories

OR:
Amazon.com: Dual Port Weatherproof Power Socket USB Charger 2.1 Amps to Low Profile DIN Hella BMW Plug: Cell Phones & Accessories

I sometimes use this - it has built in battery protection. OptiMate USB O-100 - 1000mA USB charger with battery auto protect off, SAE, compact size.

More recently I got one of these: Ravpower iSmart
The hold enough charge for 5 full cycles and I find it more convenient for tank bag usage. So far I've never had to re-charge it on the road.
