Electrical Hookups For Farkels - Questions
I searched and found a great thread from June 1 (six weeks before I became a GT owner) titled 'Accessory connector from canbus system: which wire does what'. But it didn't answer all my questions.
The thread identified part number 83 300 413 585 which connects to a plug in front of the battery. How many devices can I hook up to it?
I need power for my SP III, V1 and yet-to-be-purchased Autocom and satellite radio. How do I physically connect more than one device to that part?
If I install a Centech or similar fuse panel, can I hook that up to the BMW part or 'power' it from that? If not, can I use the BMW part for the relay? Electrical systems are a mystery to me if you couldn't tell.
What is your recommendation for a V1 cable? Do I have to buy one from them or can I use a phone cord which is what it looks like?
What is the most popular satellite radio and mount? There seem to be unlimited radios, which design(s) work best on a bike?
Lastly, anyone out there have the new shelf with support legs (Big Mak?) for mounting the gps and radar? I like the gps up high, but my buddy had a shelf on his RT and it was a piece of crap, shaking and vibrating, he lost his gps on it, but the tether save it from the road.
Thanks for your help.
