Hi all,
I want to install a GPS on my wife's Spyder. I've already got the mounting part worked out but I need to know how I can route the power cable from the front dash location to the battery.
The power cable has a fuse box so I need enough space to route that through.
Has this been discussed in a previous post? I couldn't find one for the 2018 RT Limited. A video showing which panels, etc that need to be moved or removed would be great.

Thanks in advance

Are all of the parts you have part of the BRP OEM Garmin GPS package ?
Or something else ?

You probably do not want to go all the way to the battery but instead find an "accessory" power lead that goes off with the ignition.

When you say "fuse box", do you really mean an inline fuse holder ??

Hi Easy Rider!
It's a Garmin zumo 396 LMT-S and I think the "box" might actually be an inline voltage regulator.

That model is not one that integrates with the audio system on a Spyder.
Yes indeed. The GPS itself does not run on 12 V.
But my original remark still applies.
You need to get your power from a SWITCHED supply point, not directly from the battery.

Hello again,
Thanks for that information, it's much appreciated.

Use a data blocker in the USB port in the glove box and power the smartphone. Mount it to the dash and get a GPS app. Way cheaper. Better yet, use the phone in the dash. Less complicated.
