    Removing OEM sat nav cable

    The oem sat nav cable goes to the left side of the bike where it splits in two. Both pieces go to separate connectors, one of which is high up and difficult to access.

    I imagined that there might be one connector for attaching a general Sat nav power supply, but it seems a bit more complicated.

    Any suggestions gratefully received.

    On my gen 1 I replaced the built in SatNav cable and carrier for my TomTom Rider. I bought a TomTom compatible cable from 'nippy normans' which directly replaced the standard cable and was straight plug in so no can bus issues etc. The cable plug point was under the small fairing plastics on the left side of the bike.
