    If you use the Honda harness is the accessory power off when key off? I like to charge my MP3 when I am off the bike.

    When the key is off the Accessory goes off. In your case if you want to have constant power instead of switched power you can go direct to the battery. Just be sure its fused and a switch wouldn't be a bad idea to turn it off when you dont want it energized.

    I'm letting dealer install heated grips and power outlet so it will be switched. May install a second one through the fuse block rather than moving the wiring. Kind of like the 2 port usb one and my MP3 has a usb plug for charging.

    Finished

    Got it all back together. I installed the Honda Sub-Harness and the Honda Relay kit. In addition, I got the matching female connectors to plug my accessories into the Honda Subharness. I installed the Frunk Dual USB chargers and powered by GPS. Now everything is on-off with the key. I think this will do everything I need.

    Craig, how do you run power out of the frunk to your GPS? Do you just close the lid over the USB cable?

Hopefully that helps a little.

    P.S. Honda installed this outlet, I did not.
    It looks like the dealership just guessed on that one too instead of removing the side cowl to get it exactly on mark....

    Dan, No, I ran the GPS power cord down the handlebars with the other handlebar cables and tie wrapped it along the harness all the way to the Honda Sub-harness as the Sub-harness has four plugs for accessories. I used one for the Frunk power point and one for the GPS.

    Well done!

    I thought the sub-harness is definitely the way to go. Well protected behind a fuse and relay.

    That makes a lot of sense. I suppose the GPS has a 12V power supply so you can run it right into the harness without any kind of transformer on it. I ordered connectors so I have them on hand when the time comes. Thanks for the great idea!!! When it comes to the electrical side of things, I have to admit that I am a bit timid.

    Cafeful. Just read in another forum of someone frying their Garmin GPS wiring directly to battery. Forgot the cord suppleid with GPS drops voltage from 12V to 5V. Make sure the voltage is correct by the time it gets to GPS. Could be a costly mistake. That said I bought a motorcyle harness for my Garmin Nuvi 550 with wire long enough to get to battery or fuse block. Would probalby work wiht any Garmin that uses same mini plug for power.
