    I want to hook up my XM to a switched 12v in the fairing. Are there any good spots to tap into or unused plugs there?

    If you aren't using the GPS connector for a zumo, would be a good place to start.

    I added a Fuzeblock FZ1 so I have 1 switched power line to it and it powers relays so I can put 6 or 7 keyed components in drawing from the battery using only one signal. You can set each output to keyed or always on.

    What does the GPS plug look like? I see a couple extra plugs in there?

    The GPS connector on the clutch side of the bike is identical to the cruise control connector located on the opposite side (throttle) of the bike.
    I made a video of the cruise connector for someone earlier. You can see it in my video below.
    The GPS plug looks exactly the same and has a black rubber cover on it. Hope this helps you identify it when you see it.

    Just don't use the audio input from the GPS connector for your XM. It's mono only.

    I found the 12v wire and tapped into it.

    works great.

    thanks everyone.
