ANOTHER Zumo 665 Install QUESTION ??

OK Just received my zumo 665 and had expected some mention in the directions as to power source options. Again, love the brand, but struggle with the company's decision makers. I want to connect the unit to the accessory Deutsch plug under the seat (13 RGC). Well, kit comes with wiring harness, of course. Power and ground, OK. But, not one mention of "suggested" wiring options and certainly not one Deutsch socket housing to be found in the box. I'm cool, have to shlep to the dealership, buy a connector, figure out pin placements and move forward. But, they make it so unnecessarily hard for the average "joe" to install their stuff. I KNOW the obvious other alternatives including the cigarette lighter and european unused lighting pigtails, but I choose, as other may, to use the switched accessory circuit. Maybe I'm missing something, but it sucks…With that said, anybody who may have had the pleasure of connecting the Deutsch plug to this unit and remembers the pin placement, I would appreciate an PM…As always, Thanks for your support..

I connected mine to the bike fuse panel and used the space labeled for nav, but it was a pain to hook up. Worth it for me, but maybe not for some others. Here's a thread with the accessory connector color code:

If your dealer doesn't have the Deutsch components or you are like me and prefer to order off the net so you don't have to deal with people, here's a link:

Here's the directions for the handlebar install kit. It goes into detail about how to connect it to the fuse panel. The adapter wire comes with the handlebar kit, but you can get it separately as well. It was a bit of a pain to do it this way, but now I have a fuse in my main fuse panel for the GPS. It makes my OCD smile.

+1 on what we did.... Most people use lighter or aux switch to power there GPS, why? When there is a fuse proved on the bike which turns the GPS on/off and will charge the unit as well.

You can peal back the sheath on the ACC plug under the seat and just use T-taps to connect your power. Here's your plug and wiring color codes for it. https://www.roadglide.org/showpost.ph...05&postcount=4
