Tom Tom Wiring
« on: August 13, 2012, 05:11:19 PM »
Hi Guys

I have a TomTom GPS which on my old Guzzi simply plugged into the 12v socket but I cannot seee a socket on the CT so has anyone had any experience of wiring in a TomTom and if so is it easy? where is a good point to get a feed etc? I was thinking if I cock this up the bike might go up in fire! :021:

Hi gazbiker, the CT has a jack plug mounted behind the left fairing(as you sit on the bike) and needs an expensive Honda loom and an even more expensive fag lighter socket which connects to this loom and mounts under the seat where it is totally useless for your sat nav up at the dash area.alternatively there are 3 sockets on this loom and you could use one of these to power the sat nav. some of the live feeds in the jack plug behind the fairing are perm live and some are switched through the ignition. you could test the jack plug, find the feed you want and splice in to the jack and try to mount a fag lighter socket at the dash area, which is what i am trying to do at the moment. hope this helps

 Hi trecker

Sounds like you are making progress.

I was going to pop into the Honda dealer at the weekend and see what suggestions they have but in the meantime if you find a good solution can you let me know.

cheers

Hi gazbiker. The connector block you need is here in this picture. Its in deed behind the left hand side panel. I have posted on this forum somewhere on how to remove the panel. Let me know if you need an explanation on how to remove the panel. The wire you need to splice into is the switched live. Its the black wire with the yellow stripe in it. I don't have any Honda accessory's fitted on my bike so my connector plug isn't being used. The wire in the top of this connector block that you can see is my satnav wire I installed. I hope this helps you. Personally I wouldn't bother with a 12v socket fitted somewhere around you handle bars. I hard wired my satnav into the switch live. you can buy a hard wire kit from tomtom or ebay, I think it makes a much better and neater job.  Good luck buddy

Found this company who do the electrical connectors, the one on the CT looks like a Sumitomo MT or HM series, they provides great service just the minimum order prices.
