    12v switched supply for satnav

    Going to get rid of the satnav holder on my 2023 XR and put a quad lock with wireless charger on the mount bar.  Where is the best place to get a 12v switched power supply there?  I'm assuming I can't just take off the power lines that went to the BMW GPS cradle?  If not, can I wire in to the back of the aux power socket on the front fairing?

    The supply to the BMW cradle is switched and is 12v.

    Just use it.    :028:

    Otherwise - tap into the hella socket supply cable in the cockpit

    Thanks all, really useful!  I'll just cut the OEM GPS cable and wire in the 12v supply to the quad lock charger.   :152:
