Road Tech Zumo 665 Installation

Alright, Guys,

I think I am going to spring for the Road Tech Zumo 665 and mount it with the Iron Aces mount.

Trying to piece all the info together for what I need to install it on my 2012 Road Glide Custom, and scouring through the posts is proving to be a little more difficult that I anticipated.

So, what exactly do I need for the perfect clean install?

Obviously, I need the GPS (p/n 76000014A). What else do I need from HD?

Thanks!

E

I mounted mine with the Iron Aces Mount and it was pretty straight forward.
I wired mine to the accessory switch and ride with it on all the time.
The XM works great through blue tooth also.
If I can be of any assistance feel free to PM me.

I wired mine to the main fuse panel. It was a bit of a pain, but ended up being a clean install.

+1 did the same thing; there is a 2 amp fuse in the fuse box just for a GPS. Real easy to take the tank off and run your wiring down through the centre ducting.

Ran mine to the cig lighter in the fairing. I used a quick disconnect behind my speedo so I can take the garmine mount off and hook up a USB and moun phone when not on trips.
Get a Kradlelock for peace on mind also. Here's a pic of my mount.

Here is a video showing one way to install the GPS. It also shows how to install the HD Bomm for those who want to make and take phone calls via the Bluetooth link with the GPS. You don't need the HD Bomm unless you want this function.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYE-...ature=youtu.be

If you are using a Bluetooth helmet then all you need to do is connect power and the XM Puck and your done. If your using a wired headset then you will need to install the audio output from the GPS to the Auxiliary input on the front of the radio. You will need a 3.5mm Male Stereo to 3.5mm Male Stereo cable to accomplish this. Radio Shack P/N 42-223. Remember in order to hear any turn prompts your radio must be in the AUX mode.

If you don't like the looks of the cable plugged into the AUX port you can modify the radio to add an Auxiliary Input to the back of the radio. You can find the complete directions to do this on the HD Bomm web site.

If you want full integration for the turn prompts then you will need to buy the Harley branded Zumo, the Road Tech 660 or 665 but you will also need to buy the Harley Navigation Interface Module (NIM). you can find more information on the NIM and how it works on the HD Bomm web site.

Thanks for the info, guys. Greatly appreciated.

Is there any advantage to connecting power to the fuse box as opposed to the lighter or the auxiliary connector?

Why go one way or the other?

Seems the lighter way might be the easiest to do. Any reason not to?

When I had my front fairing off, I connected my power cord to the back side of the cigar lighter. The power cord was routed through a hole I drilled in the back of the left cubby, above the lighter. I don't use a Zumo, instead an iPhone connected via Bluetooth. When the iPhone is connected, it is on the Ram Mount. When off, the power cord tucks into the cubby. You can see the Ram Mount in the attachment.
