I've read DennisB's posts on installing his custom SatNav mount on the handlebars and the socket in the front pocket but I've got one of these which we use in the car but it'll take up a lot of room in the pocket, plus it's one more connection to work loose.

Has anyone hard-wired a USB charging socket, so that you can use the custom short cables? If so, how?

Hi Alan,

There's a person on Ebay that manufactures a GPS hard wire power supply cable assembly for M/C's. Some have an inline voltage step-down for those GPS's that require 5 volt power input.

This person has many different cable assemblies for many GPS units. Here is the Ebay thread:

I used the transformer/cable assembly Dennis refers to hardwired directly to the headlight. Does the job well.

Thanks Dennis, I didn't realise that he actually made them but he's in the USA and postage could be prohibitive. Also, how big are they? You've got to hide that box somewhere!

My thought was that all the gubbins exists in one of those plugs I linked to and they're only about 3" long and ½" diameter. That could be a little easier to hide, especially after you've taken the cigarette plug off one end.

... something a bit like this but tidier. I'm tempted to buy something like this and see what's inside. £5 isn't exactly a bank-breaker!

I thought it'd actually make more sense to put this here, instead of in the other thread where it was originally.

I've just bought two of these as they're much smaller than the usual USB 12V adapters. I've bought two with a view to dismantling one, via the torx screw in the front, to see if I can replace the powerlet in the left-hand glove box, as most things charge from USB these days.

I have no connection with the company selling these items, other than finding them on eBay and buying from them. I'll let you know how I get on but they're based on the USA, so it could be useful all round.
