Garmin Montana AMPS Mount

I figured it out: I also posted up an install with photos.

Bike: 2014 F800GS
GPS: Garmin Montana
Mount: AMPS Rugged Mount

The Power Mount has a selection of wiring:

Yellow is the serial data input wire
Blue is the serial data output wire
Green ins the serial ground wire
red and black wires to the bikes main power

Question 1: Has anyone utilized the data wires on their F800gs?

Question 2: I removed the battery cover on the fake tank and did not see a canbus plug where I could utilize this part: #PN is 83300413585 from this thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=260497

I also found this thread but it was for a 1200gs: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...3&postcount=32

Question 3: Is there anyone out there with a picture of their wiring for a garmin with an AMPS rugged mount that would not mind sharing that with me?

Thanks!

I am heading out tomorrow to get the can bus adapter. Hopefully I can document the whole process.

Installation of Canbus Adapter and Garmin Montana

[IMG][/IMG]

Remove the top panel.

This is the canbus plug. It is inserted into a dummy plug. This is where your adapter will be attached.

This is the canbus adapter from BMW. This is generally used in GPS applications such as the garmin montana install. Note the part number is in the picture if you need it.

This is the mocked up Canbus adapter. It shows the raw ends of each of the wires from the Garmin Rugged mount with fuse inline.

This is all wired up and bundled. I am putting all the wiring behind the battery. I am hoping there is not too much heat here....

For wiring. You want to label each of the canbus adapter wires. I labeled them 1, 2 and 3 (there is tiny writing on the wires themselves). I also labeled the positive and negative wires via green tape on each wire.

Wire 1: Solder the black Garmin cable negative/earth to wire 1 on the canbus adapter
Wire 2: On the CAN-Bus adapter Wire 2 is not needed. move or situate it out of the way.
Wire 3: Solder the red Garmin cable (positive/live) to wire 3 on the canbus adapter

[IMG][/IMG]

Everything is hidden and out of the way here.

All finished.

I used the Touratech locking mount. Looks good. Does a good job at holding in the GPS.
