Using the accessory socket to power a TomTom Rider

I’m planning to use the accessory socket on the right hand side of the SS to power my TomTom Rider 500. I was just going to unplug the wire from the socket and solder the TomTom lead to it then put some heat shrink over the joint. Any one had any problems doing this?

Why not use the USB port under the seat and run a line thru the framework to where your TomTom will be?

As @JaggerCat mentions, one option is USB, another is accessory socket, another is fused off the battery...

Here's a thread about using the accessory socket (that is switched to the key), using proper connectors options, alleviating the need for soldering and enabling it to be disconnected easily going back a ways... looks like this subject came up before...

But soldering should work too, if you would like a permanent solution...

I don't know if the USB socket will charge a TomTom. It won't charge a Garmin Zumo. I used your solution to connect to the accessory socket with a Rizoma connector. I think that is the absolute best way to connect a GPS unit.

Excellent find and share, Keith - bookmarked!

New Jersey will beat Eastern Beaver on shipping, Iím sure.

So, lemme get this straight.

I twist this little tube, it gets loud, I go forward really fast and it makes me smile...is that how it all works?

You can also strip the dummy plug and solder to that connector then plug it back in.

This reminds me I have all of the parts sitting on my work bench waiting for me to assemble an SAE plug to the end of the Rizoma connector from the last time this came up.

Gotta get to that this weekend.
