thanks for reading, I'm leaving tomorrow for the COBDR...

I'm considering wiring my GPS directly to the battery, which already has a cig lighter adapter wired directly to it as well.
(I realize I will need to remember to shut the GPS off every time I stop.)

I'm planning on using ring terminals to connect to the battery posts, on top of the ones that are already on there from the cig lighter adapter.

Does anybody have any advice on this? I have a new battery and am off on a two week trip. Will probably take it off when I get back, but don't want to short anything out, blow fuses or god forbid catch on fire while I'm out there.

I'm trying to keep it simple as I'm leaving tomorrow and am hoping this will not cause problems.

Anybody have any experience with this on a 690? Thanks for any advice!

There are two power free connections behind the headlight shroud.  One switched & one not switched.
