Whilst removing the alternator belt cover to check the belt for tension and condition, as well as replace the 6 rusted to f*ck bolts with shiny stainless ones.
Unmounted the ECM if thats what it is, has two big cables plugged each side and a yellow or green earth connection. Has a plastic cover over it too.
Above was the plug pictured not fitted to anything.
At first tried to trace it back and for a moment thought I had disconnected the Starter/Kill switch.
It exits the loom same place as the cable, a quick test soon made me realise was not that connection.
So can anyone tell me what it is?

That is the switched powerline that Guzzi provided for a satnav - think it may be a Garmin plug

Nope. It's a Tom Tom plug. I wish it was for a Garmin though...

Think that's an "old style" TT connector. I chopped some of those off to add new-style ones to mine to mount a new TomTom Rider 550.

I have had quite a number of G&T's -- of the wet and GPS kind Wink -- and prefer the former without ice and curse the latter Garmins and TomToms as maddening but necessary annoyances.

I have left over plugs of all sorts if anyone wants something in particular.

I am using a Beeline Beeline linky
- which runs of the google maps on my phone (in my pocket)
Because the screen is off the phone battery lasts all day plus and the beeline runs for 3-4 days before recharge.

Nice and minimalist so it suits the GRiSO (IMHO)

Used it for 11 months now - 7,000 miles

I have a Beeline too, I can fit it to my GRiSO via a special handlebar mount.

Also can mount it on an electric push bike that I use for exercise after breaking my ankle (scaffold incident).

Have to be careful that I don't run the motorcycle software when riding the push bike or vice-versa.  Can get into all kinds of "situations" then!  Embarassed

I have the Beeline in Silver and the handlebar mount.
Used the largest of the rubber inserts with lots of electrical tape still fixed solid.
Did find that the plastic one being lighter sits on the bracket more snug.
The metal versions are quite substantial and heavy in a small way and rattle about which is shit.
Found using an oring glued underneath secures it better until the oring gets forced off.

Can anyone clarify that bit of the wiring circuit?

It looks like when the Light Logic relay (7) is triggered it connects the feed from fuse 1 (green and black) to the yellow/Black wire feeding that TomTom lead and the alternator exciter coils (connection L) .  

However if you check the voltage on those leads when the engine is not running it is very low - about 4v.
But if you put a 12v light across them it lights up when the engine starts.

So is the yellow and black lead feeding Fuse1 from the alternator or feeding from Fuse1 to the alternator?
