type 12 volt power install. Gives detailed instructions for installing a power supply on your silverwing. This would power your gps... This is what I plan on doing as soon as i finish figuring out how to install highway pegs on mine...Good luck

Try this item from DennisB's shop:
https://www.silverwing600.com/t2858-head-light-connector-pigtail-plug-play

I just got one from him myself, it's sitting in my kitchen waiting for it to be installed.... I just need time to put it in.

Larry you take all the fun out of biking!!!!! Shocked

You use GPS - I love getting lost and exploring! Laughing

You use a drinks holder!!!! - No excuse for stopping at a hostelry for refreshments!! Laughing

Mobile phone holder! (OK cell phone - I am a Brit Rolling Eyes ) No body should contact you when out riding - they are bound to spoil the experience!!!!!

Me - I ride the Bike. No distractions just strange places, dying of thirst and no way of getting help!!!!! clown

Waspie,

I can't help it.... my other bike is a Goldwing!!

I don't like distractions either.... but it is nice to see a text come in when it does. I don't text when riding, but I will stop and check it from time to time... just depends on how long I am out screwing off. The phone is there for when I need it. I don't answer it. I just want it handy rather than crunched in my pocket.

I use a good insulated coffee cup and it is very hard to finish the coffee during a regular coffee stop.... and it is nice to have a hot drink in this cold climate. This is Seattle!!

The GPS will get me where I am going, regardless. I love it in strange towns.... not only will it get you there, it will provide good information about towing, fuel stops, restaurants, motels and adult entertainment!

Not only the GPS, but you can't see it that well in the picture, but there is the hump bag.... and on the top of the hump bag is a map pocket which is viewable as you drive. I will post instructions from mapquest in there as well.

I was a boy scout, always prepared.

Laughing Dib Dib Dob!! Never a Scout but was a Scout Leader!!!!

Although I bought a Givi bag to place my 'car' GPS unit in I have never used it. Like most folk of an age. I was built for maps, I understand them and in an emergency can be a good fire starter!!!!!! (Scout thing again Embarassed )

Regards the OP's question. He needs to either fit a 12 volt power supply in the left glove box or route suitable wiring under the panels back to the battery. There is bound to be a previous thread that subtle use of the search function will uncover.

I picked up the power for my GPS from the live feed to the brake light switch, finding an earth is the tricky bit. The Zumoo works fine and this is the way Honda powered the heated grips when I had an ST1100

Wouldn't it have been easier to use the 12v power socket in the left hand storage pocket. Wink

Don't think the FSC's have it fitted as standard as ours do.

My 05 Silverwing does not have a 12v adapter in the left hand pocket as you mentioned. I have a plug in the hole where one could go, but no cigarette lighter plug in.

Did yours come wired up?

The UK has the FJS version of the Silver Wing, not the FSC spec you have in the US. So we get as standard a 12v power socket, and the Honda Ignition Security System HISS, so the engine can only be started using the original encoded keys.

Hi everybody, you have good site. I also have SW FSJ600, 2004. I will montage GPS and mobile phone to SW, but I thing I will montage to Givi Airflow via some rostfrei console - maybe somebody has some hesitation (vibration,..)????
