Annoyed that I have not found a male mate to it so I can make use of it. Whacking it off seemed just wrong; after all it's a perfectly good part and as far as I know, it works too! So I took of the cover, pulled the sucker out and took pictures.

Plugged in the number as seen on the side into google. Bingo, on eBay! I ordered it! Should receive it in a couple weeks. Google had plenty of other links so this may be a solved mystery.

Even cheaper (I was too excited and bit on the first one) coming from Lithuania.

I cut mine off, but added a connector so I can reattach if required (doubtful). It's now a fused USB adapter for all kinds of uses. Very Happy

Several buddies cut theirs off too. Over on WildGoose that was the common response to that little guy.

Naturally I didn't like it. Smile

I made a wire to connect the Tomtom plug to a miniUSB to power my Garmin.
Works well. Needed the male connector shown in this thread and elsewhere on this forum (I used the Mercedes part, but it doesn't matter).  Connected it to a Garmin wire that has the right-angle miniUSB that they use.  

The stock Tomtom plug outputs 12V and Tomtom steps it down in the GPS.  The Garmin cable I used had the step-down to 5V in the wire, so the output is 5V.  This is the more typical input for USB-powered devices.  

Otherwise it's just a matter of splicing wires and making sure the splice is waterproof with some heat shrink tubing.

Well the original product was simply the same fitting as we have. Gah! I mis-read the photo showing two items, it was just a different view of the same thing.

But running the part number through Alibaba netted me five pair of male and female fitting along with their pins.

So much time has past I have forgotten why I wanted it!

With the bit on the left side (the long tube) you can take advantage of the power tap without cutting it off.

I searched once, here the result in german:

Weil niemand die Stecker auftreiben konnte hab ich mal gesucht, und da ist sie dann:

ich hab mal gesucht, es gibt die Stecker in Mercedes/BMW/Audi werkstatt, weil genuzt im auto's.
Die sind aus die Micro-Quadlock-System (MQS) von AMP/Tyco. Es gibt da variante, wir brauchen die A version

die gegenseite ist diese:

Das Stift-Gehäuse, Mercedes A2105404781, tyco 1--968733-6 und 1-967570-3  
Der weiße Steckereinsatz 965325-1 (männlich, vom Stecker an der Waschdüse)
pins (2x) A0345456528

Bei Mercedes gibt es mit nummer A2305400166 ein leitung von 15cm lange mit beidseitig ein Stecker, die kann mann nutzen und eine seite abschneiden. Etwa 15 euro

And now I can't find it. :p Gah!

What I'm unsure about now, is the cable make up to the TomTom mount (I have a TomTom GPS, but not the Rider). After talking with a gentleman at the Datil Rally, I'm considering a Garmin Montana. Then I can use it with the 650L (assuming I can sort the stumble that I get at 3400+ rpm's, driving me around the bend!).

I think at one time I was looking at powering the heated grips through this port too.
