The ones right under the hood. Flat 2 prong trailer type.

Do not do this.

Got it hooked up so it gets power when the key is on. Spliced into the harness on ignition. Red w green gets power when the key is on. Red yellow always has power.

I was hesitant to do it this way but needed to in order to be able to remove the hood and not have to screw w gps power cord. Used heat shrink connectors and made damn sure that they are solid connections. Hook ground to the black and blue wire on the end. The all black is hooked to the kill switch.

Do not do it this way. Only getting 11.2V off of these wires making the GPS act up.

Update 12/11/19:
I now go straight to battery with an SAE plug positioned by the harness that gets unplugged when the hood is removed. Already have 12v outlet in dash so I didn't use the plug others are using. I also wanted to power the unit without the sled running. I turned GPS off but left it plugged in. If it drains the battery, I can pull start it and will then know to unplug the GPS when not using.

Just a f.y.i for people with the std gauge there is no power up by the hood with the key on sled not running .

Works great on Dash bag. I did add a small plastic

The other thing is the mini usb power cord has to have the proper socket orientation for a nuvi. I went through a few that did not always work. Dont know why as the were supposed to work with the nuvi.


This cord finally did the trick and I never lost power with it.

I think this is what I need. Trying to charge the Nuvi with the mini USB cord that came with it. Probably the data cord? Doesn't want to work for me correctly.

This doesn't put out enough power to run the Drive 61. It was working sitting still but when I ran on the trail, it started acting up right away. Switched to the cig plug power cord and it worked fine.

Started reading reviews and found one that says it puts out less than 2 amps which is required for the 6" units.
Works fine for me

Thanks Snowtime, I was in the process of figuring out how to connect gps when I saw your post. I bought the same adaptor.

Only glitch, can be a tic hard to see in bright sunlight when riding, in the bush no problems, same at night.
zr sled head, I have a question. I have the same windshield bag as you on my '16 Switchback. The front of the bag where the GPS will mount is pretty much straight up and down whereas the gauge is slanted back towards the driver. Is that an issue seeing the GPS screen at that angle? I'm mounting a Garmin Nuvi 67LM with a 6'' screen using VV mapping.
I like the idea of using the windshield bag as a shock absorbing mount.
