Hard wiring a new GPS

I’ve got a new BMW Navigator V I’d like to mount to my 1190 R and hard wire to the bike’s electrical system. (I don’t want to use the cigarette adapter the bike has.)

The GPS comes with a cradle that ends in a BMW power connector. I’ve purchased the other side of that connector (http://goo.gl/aatJTB) which then ends in bare wires.

What’d I’d like to do is attach those wires into whatever connector will plug into the bike’s auxiliary outlets.

Can anyone tell me what connector I need? I didn’t see anything in the manual.

Thanks!
Fergus

You need two of these 6.3 mm flat plugs...


The connectors for ACC1 and ACC2 are right behind the head light. They are in transparent rubber housings (sorry for my poor english)...

Thanks! That's very useful. Do you have a link to information about the connector? I see the picture but more information would be useful so I can order those plugs.

Those are just flat blade lugs available at any hardware store (Home Depot, Lowes, Ace, etc .. . . . ).

Blue is for 14 to 18 gauge wire. That's what you want.

Related, does anyone know how to get to the wires behind the headlight?

Have you checked that the connector that's recommended at that link, is the correct one to mate with the plug on the end of the Nav V cable? It looks like the wrong one to me.

I've been here recently, trying to help my son fit a Nav III to his Honda VFR. The dealership supplied me with the connector which is illustrated in that link and it was a repair part for the cable and connector fitted as stock on the GPS unit.

I do have some previous experience of this, having fitted my Navigator IV to two previous R1200 GS.

From looking at the fiche, I think the correct part number for the connector which is part of the OEM loom on a BMW and which mates with the GPS connector, is this one...83 30 0 413 586

Hey Schtum,

I think I posted the wrong link (or perhaps the right link but there are other cables listed on the same page). I do have the same connection that you do, the one who's part number ends in 586. Thanks for the advice 'though.

Yeah, I did post the wrong link. For some reason, doing a Google search on 83 30 0 413 586 gives you the parts listing for ...585. I did the search again directly on MAX BMW's site and found the same picture as the one you posted.

In the end, I got it all figured out (thanks to everyone's help!) and posted a write-up here:
