OK. . . connecting the GPS cable to the power receptacle in the glove box will not work because of not enough depth to shut the door.

I've looked at the options in the forum for this issue and will need to figure out the best solution.

But, why is this necessary in the first place? What is the purpose of putting the receptacle there?

Have I missed something?

Buy a flush USB charger. Works fine for me.

I ended up installing a new power outlet behind the glove box under the tupperware and am using it for a semi-permanent power source for my Garmin. I snaked the wire up through the rubber seal at the mirror and it hardly shows on the top of the dash. I don't use the power outlet in the box because, as you note, there is a lack of room. Stupid engineering since there are any number of other places to mount that outlet. This has the stench of a last minute marketing department idea....

There's a bunch out there as stated above like this. I've got one like it on mine. I have also added a extra pair of outlets behind the panel. I just bought one of those 2 to adapters and made a jumper so it plugs in between the harness/stock socket.

Originally, I fitted a second (marine type) accessory socket a few inches to the left of the ignition switch and this arrangement served my satnav very well. The trouble was that the satnav cable was exposed and looked very untidy. To remedy this I have now soldered wires to the centre and side contact of the satnav cable large plug taped it to the frame up out of the way under the front panel tupperware and connected the other ends of the 2 wires to the back of the accessory socket (observing polarity) via piggy-back connectors. It was a simple matter to then feed the satnav cable up through the handlebar cover (leaving plenty of cable-slack for steering movement) and out near the left brake reservoir where my satnav sits. All that shows is the small satnav-end plug, neat and almost invisible. :thumbup:
