Linking TomTom to battery

Post by Kata » Aug 10th, '17, 12:39

Hi All,

Bought a Tom Tom 420. Comes with a lead coming from the mount with 2 pins. This is supposed to be plugged into a longer lead that has 2 wires on the end which I guess you have to wire to the battery.

I've already got a lead coming (TM type) from the battery for the battery charger.

Does anyone know of a lead that will convert between the TM type and the TomTom 2 pin socket?

Ta muchly

Realistically if you want it hard wired to the bike it should be done via a relay to prevent battery drain when not being used.
If you know what shape the plug is its easy,
( for example oxford heated grips now use tamiya battery plugs)

And are cheap connectors online
