Just installed Garmin GPS and hardwired it. Pulled windshield garnish and found the six wire pigtail for lights and horn just above the vent. Checked voltage and found only 3 volts on side markers(?), Found 12 volts on low beam. Tapped low beam for GPS. So far no problems. Not sure why only 3 volts on side markers. The pigtail is the easiest source to get to 12 volts on my 2007 ABS Swing. Tucked in hardwired fuse and regulator under radiator reservoir access pocket. Ran hardwire under left handlebar cover and mounted GPS on Ram bracket held down with mirror.

The front "running" lights are single filament bulbs so operate on 3 volts when "running", then magic happens, and it becomes 12 volts when used as turn signals.

Hiya

I hard wired my Garmin in a slightly different way. I put in a relay in the aux socket feed (ignition activated) so the socket was live when ignition was on and then used the socket to feed both the heated grips and the GPS.
If I don't need the grips etc I just remove the Aux plug and everything is shut down. I also keep a double Aux socket in the storage compartment if I need to increase my take off at any time. The double socket also has a voltage indicator to let me know what the battery state is.
It has proven excellent over the past year with no problems.
Suits me

I did not know that about the marker voltage.
