NoHeat Posted March 17, 2007 Share Posted March 17, 2007 Haynes calls it a "side light" in their wiring diagram. I didn't know that was British usage for what we call the "parking light". Anyway, it's on a 4 amp fuse, which has as its sole load a light bulb that is only 5 Watts, i.e., about 1/2 amp. So it seems like there's a lot of unused capacity in that wiring. The GPS draws less than 1 amp. It's a Garmin 2730, and it uses a motorcycle mount common to all 26xx and 27xx models that comes with a 1 amp fuse built in - that's why I'm sure the GPS draws less than 1 amp. It looks like it's okay to just tap directly into that wiring to power the GPS, with no need for a relay. Am I missing anything? Link to comment
