BMW sat nav connection to bike

I have a 2007 K1200gt
I received a BMW sat nav for Christmas (navigator V) which has two connectors. I want to wire it to the BMW loom and I am lead to believe that BMW have the necessary female connectors already installed behind the fairings somewhere (i think).
can anyone confirm where i will find the bike connectors to plug my satnav into . If I have to remove the fairings, which side are they tucked away behind.
Thank
Pat

You can usually see it under the battery cover, in front of the battery (there will be a black cap cover). If you don't have the repair plug (yellow cable), you would have to cut off the connector to make the connections.

Thanks for replying to me, I checked extensively behind the battery cover and there is no plug to be seen. It looks like further surgery is required. I'll take the left fairing off first and then the right one. hopefully i will be able to see it then, wish me luck. Unless someone else want to pitch in and give me some direction ?????????????????

If you have to, remove the right side cover first.

Correct. The plug could be just below the battery.
