installation of a garmin 60csx + electrical concerns

i've been reading pages of posts, but im not sure if i'm any further !

I want to install my Garmin 60csx on my 08 Vee. I think i've settled for a ram mount that goes over the brake fluid container.

I'm somewhat confused about the recommendations for wiring. I'd like to "hard cable" it and avoid the cigarette lighter thing.

However, I'm planning on eventually adding a socket for a heated vest, and likely adding additional lights, maybe heated grips, and changing the horn.

1- anyone have bad/good experiences with the ram mount and the 60csx?
2- do i need to install a PC-8 Fuse Panel ?
3- where can i find a "how to" with pictures on how to start doing some of this cabling work?

GPS models with a cigarette lighter plug almost always have a 12V-5V converter in the plug. Most don't do well cutting off the plug. Check with Garmin. A fuse block is a good idea if several devices are planned. The Eastern Beaver site has good info as does .: Distribution Block / Powered Relay | Canyon Chasers Motorcycle Sport Touring :.
The latter site has clickable pictures for larger views.
