I went to the local walmart and bought a cig lighter y adapter, cut off one of the female ends and wired it in to the harness behind the gauges. Both constant 12v and switched are there for the choosing :naughty:

I did on me E I direct wired to my battery with an in line fuse and 3.1 volt converter for the gps. I can remove the converter and plug in a cell phone. works great I got all the parts at radio shack and the converter from garmin.

I think the BMW 12-Volt Accessory Outlets are best on motorcycles. Do a search on Google and you should find them.

I bought a whole setup from http://www.powerletproducts.com/ for $30 on my S. It comes with an in line fuse and the Garmin DC adapter has the volt converter already in it, so i did not have to worry about that. It set me back $30, but my brother bought all the accesories from Checkers and spent $22 to do the same with an E. It is a nice setup and I like it. I mounted it on the bracket where the light sits. It is a pretty smooth. If want to spend more money, the same website offers a BMW socket type outlet that is more secure and snaps in there better. It costs more for the accesories to make it work, but it was just fine with me.
