    Using a GPS on TW200

    What is the best option for power supply to a Garmin GPS on my TDub?

    Anything better than this out there: Amazon.com: Battery Tender 081-0069-8 Female Cigarette Adaptor for Quick Disconnect: Automotive

    If you mean the "cigarette lighter" socket end, I like this one I got. It's made by BikeMaster and it clamps on the bars. The captive cover is really heavy rubber too, works well.

    I like the battery tender into plug splice. I ran both but didn't think of combining them

    Not sure if you have a cycle gear near by but occasionally they run sales on the plug adapter for around 9 bucks. I kind of like the USB stuff better imo, cleaner look less adapters to carry around. Granted you can power your GPS with usb.... I went with cig adapter purely because it was available for kinda cheap.

    I use the one in your link. No problems and I never really had to mount it. I just pushed it down along the right side of the key switch and it snuggles right in and stays there.

    I also like the USB connections. What I ordered is a cigarette lighter style, and a plug that goes in it for USB devices. So I can use either. On my T-Dub, it is either or. On my cruiser, it has both a round and USB connection, and I got another double-USB adaptor that goes in the round socket. So I have 3 USBs -- GPS, MP3 and Cell can all have power while riding.
