PostSubject: Adding a USB port   Fri Jul 29, 2016 12:56 pm

I'd like to tap into the GPS power port that Guzzi has provided to supply power to a USB port(s) to supply power to a smart phone.

Can you guys recommend any particular product over others?

I have installed a bluetooth OBD2 module, added an app to the phone so I can monitor engine temps (this winter I'm looking at controlling the air flow to the oil cooler and having a way to monitor engine temps will be nice).

I'll probably use the phone as a GPS at some point too. By the way, I'm using the phone as a mini-tablet - it does not have cell service nor do I, at this point anyway, plan on activating it. Although I could if my main phone crapped out.

Scan M5X V1.29

Thinking about adding Tune ECU; but it does not seem to have temps front and center. And I'm not sure it will read the Guzzi ECU.

This is what I use. Does what it says on the box.

MotoPlug USB with SAE waterproof connector.

I snipped the ends of the battery lead and connected it to the GPS supply. It's only on when the engine is running.



cheers

That looks like the same connector as for a Battery Tender pigtail. Excellent idea.
