Powering a sat nav

Anyone actually using a USB lead to power a sat nav?

I dont really want to start messing with the electrics on the bike and wondered if I could run a charge lead from the under seat socket to power my TomTom Rider?

Alternatively not sure if I may be able to get a socket which plugs into the Optimate lead the dealer fitted on the bike?

I’ve done both, and prefer the USB to SAE connector on my battery as it’s easier to remove when not using it.

Search the forum, there’s an aux plug under the right side of the tank that can be used for this purpose as well.

There are two wires plugged with pigtails that can be removed that are designed for ignition switched Sat Nav. I use these leads, as have several others.

I got Rizoma connectors at the dealer to mate with the connectors on the leads, or you can recycle the connectors on the pigtails.

Look for them to the right of the steering column.

I was using the USB under the seat to power the Garmin and it worked fine. I wanted to use the original charger cable that came with the GPS because it has the traffic alert receiver so I got a USB to 12v cigarette lighter cable and that works fine as well.

I think you posted the part number once before but any chance you can post it again? I need to hook up another port up front.

I’m about 3,000 miles from my bikes and equipment, but I recall it was this one shown in the link below (but I purchased it from my dealer).

Connectors mate directly with OEM connectors (after removing OEM pigtails). Other side is a bullet connector. I spliced male bullet connectors on to the Sat Nav cable so that I could join the male connectors to the female rizoma connectors, and connect/disconnect Sat Nav wire and unit at will.

I got a red 10ft USB cable on Amazon. I have it run from the seat to the front to charge my phone.

You could also get the Ducati connector itself from cycle terminal if you want to avoid the bullet connectors. Cheaper too.
