Nuvi 550 motorcycle kit.
I just picked up the Nuvi 550 on a "black Friday" sale. Don't actually think that I saved that much over the normal internet price, but I have it now.
My question is about the Garmin mounting kit. It comes with a power cable that includes a huge step down transformer. OK, it's not huge, but do I need it. The battery connector for my GPSmap 60csx wires direct to the battery, no step down needed. Can I just cut off all the crap and splice a line direct from the USB connector to my fuse box?
[B]2005 Red DL650[/B]: EB fuse panel, OEM center stand, gel Seat, Madstad adjustable windscreen, SW-Motech crash guards, SW-Motech quick release side and top racks, black Trax ALU-BOX side and top cases, electrified Cortech Super 10 tank bag, dual tool tubes.
Projects planned or sitting in my garage waiting for time: Oxford Heaterz (waiting for time), handguards, aux lights, and new paint (waiting for money).
