Switched source for GPS

Any suggestions? Do not have a owner installed extra fuse block. Is a tap con crimp overtire style ok? Is 3 amp enough power? dl1000

I've tapped into the accessory outlet line, I just removed the instrument cluster and used a posi-product crimp of the appropriate size/amperage. I don't use the accessory outlet so the wiring is enough for my power needs.

We have used the Eastern beaver tail light harness and a PC8 for switched power.

I did the same thing and it works like it should.

Maybe I'm not clued in to some detail, but why wouldn't you just use the built-in 12 volt accessory socket?

I have not yet received the GPS so unaware if it has the plug in for the female cig lighter also I have heard that it tends to vibrate loose.

SO THE NEED to tap onto a hot wire, so they Sa?

Typically, GPS units with cigarette socket plugs have a 5VDC voltage regulator in the plug. If you just cut off the plug and connect the wires to 12VDC, bad things may happen.
