Cheers,
Again, many thanks for the reply. Understood, I need to find "unlocked" maps.

Garmin Topo Canada V4 on dvd is not locked in any way.

Question Montana AMPS mount minimal wiring

The Montana AMPS motorcycle mount, as you know, it comes with a looong wire from the mount to a split for audio and power/data wires.

I want a SAE (trailer two prong) connector at about 8" from the mount.
The audio and data cables will never be used.

Has any inmate done this?

Is the cable overmolded? with shields, or is it just a jacket I can strip away to expose individual insulated wires?

Thanks for your help with this, I don't want to just cut the wire to see and ruin the mount in the process.

Cables are individual no molding... clip and wire as you see fit. I wired mine with a short sae plug to switch between bikes. Works really well!

I'll cut with confidence and finish the job today.

Still haven't resolved my issue with trying to load maps but in searching around the Internet this morning I found this-

http://www.redpinemapping.com/help/mapinstall.pdf

This is exacting how my MapInstall functions which is a lot different than what Garmin says it should work. I guess I'll try downloading MapInstall again. Originally it was loaded with BaseCamp when I loaded one of the 24k maps. Maybe it was an old version.

If the version you have came from the dvd, it certainly is an old version. I'm surprised Basecamp didn't alert you to update, though.

Hell I was dealing with MapInstall version 3.13.5.0 !
Just downloaded a new version and now it's working like a champ. What a time suck this has been. Thank God for this forum and all the great folks willing to contribute to it.

Thanks

We have two spare mounts since we're selling two bikes, so I cut the cables on the spare mounts.



It's nice to get rid of so much spare cable.

Thanks Dan in VT!

Cheers,
We haven't used the Beemers much in the last year so they're going. We're keeping the fun bikes though. We still have two DR650s and a G450X. It's too much of a drain, insurance and maintenance on 7 vehicles.

Phooeey! I just ordered a second rugged mount and AMPS ball for the Yamaha not 20 minutes before your post!

Finally have made peace with the Montana and am willing to trust it (but not autorouting) in the boonies. I just got real tired of trying to make an old 76C work as the dirtbike GPS.

The spares weren't up for grabs. They are so cheap to buy new that how much could one sell for, used, anyway? I'd have to give them away.
