BMW Parts martin sneddon on Dec 18, 2022
I have used Nippy Normans numerous times ,and everything arrives ontime everytime and the parts are quality and value for money in my opinion .
Auxiliary/Satnav Plug Tim on Nov 21, 2022
My bike came with a BMW satnav fitted, which I exchanged for my Tomtom unit. Power socket above battery was easy to find by following the BMW satnav cable, plugged straight in and connected wires with crimp fittings.
Great Customer Service Jonathan Watkinson on Oct 09, 2022
Absolutely Stirling service as always. 5* will be back.
Sat nav connection lead Gary Sutton on Oct 01, 2022
Excellent purchase, so easy to connect to the bike and the sat navigation, plugs straight into the wiring on my 2010 1200 r gs , couldn't be simpler 😁👍🏻
Garmin lead to bmw Alasdair Graham on Aug 22, 2022
Excellent product I used it before on my old bike makes wiring so handy
did the job Roger Bateman on Aug 04, 2022
a simple component with good wiring arrived on time and well packed. I don't recall any wiring instructions but was passed a great thread on a forum that said it all. its a little expensive for what it is and could do with some instructions, but 'did the job'
Here are the wiring instructions as they appear on the website
Wires are numbered and need connecting as follows:
No 1 lead earth
No 2 Do not use
No 3 to red lead on sat nav
Sat nav lead Steve Foreman on Jul 05, 2022
This lead made connecting my Garmin sat nav a piece of cake. BMW very kindly supply a connector in the canbus system for a sat nav and this lead connects to it like a glove. A waterproof straightforward connector at a reasonable price. What's not to like
plug & play lead Michael Kemp on Jun 17, 2022
does that it said on the tin , perfick
Lead connector Tim Rumbelow on Jun 12, 2022
Fantastic lead. Saves so much hassle and knowing it's the right connection is an all round winner. Perfect..... Is there really a prize ?
Good product Paul McCulloch on Jun 10, 2022
Just what I needed for my new Tom Tom, nice product , good price and swift delivery.
Zumo connect Mark Frazer on Jun 07, 2022
Great item. Easy connect for my Zumo XT to replace my useless Nav6.
Garmin sat nav lead for BMW Jonty on Jun 01, 2022
The lead does the job and gets 4 stars for doing wa=hat its meant to do.
Frustratingly no instructions but the leads a marked up so easy enough to identify.
When I say marked up they are not marked up as Positive, Negative, Earth. Just each one is a no 1 2 or 3 for example not what or where they go. But it was figured out and it works so happy days. Saves a small fortune over buying the BMW satnan.
Garmin connector lead simon vivian on May 25, 2022
Like all pre made leads of this type - they appear expensive for what they are - but they're invaluable. Unless you have the right connectors, a crimping tool and plenty of spare time - just bite the bullet and buy the pre made lead. Works perfectly - as designed for the job - and will save you lots of time and lots of swearing!
Perfect for tapping into the loom Ralph Barber on May 24, 2022
I bought this to wire in an after market phone holder/charger for my phone and it works perfectly. Well worth the money spent to avoid wiring straight into the battery. Power cuts off shortly after the ignition is turned off meaning I don’t have to worry about a flat battery
Connecting Lead Direct to BMW Canbus System Craig Simpson on May 17, 2022
Excellent item making it exceptionally easy to wire in a TomTom or Garmin Sat Nav direct to the BMW canbus system. Simply use prepared connectors to join the power lead from your device to the connecting lead (make sure to read the instructions on NN website), clip the lead into the relevant connector on the bike and hey presto ignition switched power for your device. Not a cheap item, but BMW’s are not cheap bikes, so don’t buy cheap kit.
Accessory connection Andrew Simpson on May 17, 2022
Was wanting to connect my own Sat Nav into switched live feed.
This works perfectly connecting directly into BMW wiring loom and only on with ignition.
Does what it says on the tin Alan Keill on May 16, 2022
the Connector fits well and allows you to still use the clamp on top of the battery.
my only complaint and it is only a little one, there is no pin-out diagram and the fly leads are all the same colour
Thanks for your comments - wiring instructions are on the website
PLUG AND PLAY LEAD FOR CONNECTING TOMTOM/GARMIN INTO THE BMW Andy Smith on May 04, 2022
i got rid of the standard garmin sat nav that bmw use with the bikes i just couldnt get used to it.
i have the tomtom rider 550 and like it. When i changed over i ha to hardwire it into the bmw which was a pain as the sat nav never automatically switched on or off, so the battery could drain if you let if on for a while.
i purchased this little plug and play lead, very easy to install and simple wiring.
now my tomtom works as it should and powers up and down with the ignition.
It seems expensive for what it is tbh and i think there are cheaper versions on ebay, but will they do the job as well.
Plus for the price it is, its not worth getting stranded with a flat battery somewhere out in the sticks.
Lead for connecting Garmin Watson on Apr 23, 2022
A simple lead, good quality that fits well and saves a huge amount of electrical work. Two pieces of heat-shrink tubing completes the job.
CANBUS PATRICK MCLAUGHLIN on Feb 17, 2022
Great product from NN ...Very useful cable. Allows an easy connection to CANBUS loom on bikes for a switched satnav supply..could be improved by adding a quick splice connector..
GPS connection John Ski on Oct 31, 2021
Excellent solution for powering non-BMW GPS. Prevents drain on battery whilst not in use. A tidy solution once the connection is located. Good service too.
Garmin CANBUS cable Robert Dodd on Sep 14, 2021
Excellent product, easy fit.
Just the Job Dean Wormall on Aug 17, 2021
It would be a crime not to use the already available canbus system on the BMW motorcycle, I have previously used this item for a Sat Nav and as my current navigation was on direct wiring to the battery, I thought it was time to have an ignition switched system and thus is perfect, it also has many other uses, but you will need to see the blurb for that, reasonable price too but gone up as was £12 few years ago but I suppose the long term it's not too bad. Get one and try it, they also re sell too if you change bikes.
Great solution Patrick Smit on Aug 08, 2021
Easy and no fuss solution to connect a new GPS. Great service, quick delivery.
Just what I needed Ross Marland on Jul 26, 2021
Great connector to power my TomTom.
Minor niggle that it didn’t come with a pin out diagram ( there is a description on the Nippy Norman’s website) or water resistant boot.
Connected to spare plug under the beak. works great
Connecting sat nav to BMW Richard Evans on Jul 02, 2021
The only sensible way to connect the sat-nav to my F800ST. Easy, neat and functional. Tom Tom works fine and will simply unplug it I change my bike. Rapid, no fuss delivery from Nippy Normans.
Satnav connection Keith Bowen on Jun 07, 2021
Works exactly as described with wiring directions spot on with the correct plug connection.
BMW Switched Auxiliary Connector David Colla on Jun 05, 2021
Simply snapped into socket, metered out supply feed and connected to DVR system
Garmin lead ANN ATKINSON on May 16, 2021
does exactly what it's supposed to
Review Bill on May 13, 2021
Fitted no problem other than wire numbers were not as stated correct numbers identified using multimeter now working okay.
easy fit Nick Hutton on May 13, 2021
this is so simple to use, loved it, however having to wear glasses i found the number on the wires hard to read. would be nice if there were some tags on the wires as well as the number just to make it that little bit easier. so good and easy i loved it.
Garmin sat nav Gordon Smith on Mar 21, 2021
Easy to install and did the job saves all wires goin back the battery
BMW GPS socket adapter Michael Williams on Mar 17, 2021
Ideal plug, does what it says on the tin, however, it might have been better to match the gauge of the wires with the gauge of the wires from the GPS so that when crimping together, it’s a better connection.
Accessory plug Scott Barratt on Feb 27, 2021
Fast delivery and excellent quality plug, perfect fit into the BMW loom so I now have power to my satnav via the canbus system.
Excellent Paul on Feb 20, 2021
This is simple and easy. Just solder 2 of the wires to your sat nav cable and plug it in. It’s as simple as that
Easy fit mark kelk on Jan 06, 2021
Great piece of kit really simple to fit to my existing Tom Tom, plug and play
Garmin lead ECM Motorcycles on Nov 20, 2020
Great product and quick delivery as usual
Lead Russell on Nov 18, 2020
Perfect fit allowed me to fit Tom To
TomTom Power Lead Tony Fyson on Oct 28, 2020
Initially, I was unsuccessfully trying to fit the lead to a small white connector, attached to the Garmin wiring.
I eventually disconnected the Garmin wiring loom, and attached the TomTom lead in its place.
It works perfectly!
Review Paul Richards on Oct 26, 2020
Exactly as described and fitted and works perfectly
No problems John Reid on Oct 01, 2020
Numbered leads, easy to install, worked first time.
Pigtail Elliot Vazquez on Sep 01, 2020
Easy install just as you described and my new TomTom 550 Rider works perfectly!!
Connector for Sat Nav Colin on Aug 12, 2020
Did exactly what it said on the tin - easy to fit and sat nav working.
Shame there isn't one for my dash cam!
Perfekt kabel Robert Schwartze on Jul 22, 2020
Perfekt kabel att koppla till elsystemets orginalanslutning för GPS, extra eluttag eller vad du vill
Works but expensive Richard white on Jul 15, 2020
Works very well ,but is very expensive for a plug and some wire
Lead to connect Tom Tom gps into the BMW harness Keith Barrell on Jul 13, 2020
Lead easily fitted into existing BMW plug to connect my Tom Tom gps directly into the BMW harness. Works a treat and is powered direct from battery when ignition turned on.
Sat Nav Power lead James on Jul 08, 2020
Easy to fit on my 2016 S1000RR!
GPS connecting wire. Mr David Holmes on Jul 03, 2020
Handy connector wire that fits straight into existing plug on bike harness. GPS works with ignition and i also tagged relay takeoff wire for my spotlights into it so they work with ignition too. Spot on.
GPS connector cable Wookie on Jun 15, 2020
Cable does what it says on the bag. There is a lot of it. And it is bright yellow.When fitting , do a dry run run to see where the excess will be tucked away.
BMW Tom Tom GPS lead Ivan on May 28, 2020
Lead did the job fine first time. Could only have been made better if it came with a couple of small connectors for those that don’t have soldering irons. Pleased with purchase. Sat nav working as it should
Garmin lead David Peaston on May 04, 2020
Quick delivery, cable allows to plug into existing Canbus harness, just connect the tails to your sat nav wires. Job done.
Useful John Ridd on Apr 01, 2020
Fits the lead provided by BMW, easy to use, just be aware it goes live when switched on but does not switch off when ignition is shut down.
Gpsz wire Bruno Marujo on Oct 27, 2019
Tested and works well.. Now I'm ready for big trips
Bmw gps connector plug Darryl Copolov on Sep 16, 2019
The product did exactly what it is designed to do, I think too pricey for what it is but I'm very happy I bought it.
GPS wiring harness John Watts on Aug 31, 2019
Fits perfectly! Instructions a bit vague but it’s not rocket science.
BMW connection lead Andi Holland on May 22, 2019
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Just note that on the LHS there are 2 possible connectors: the one nearest the frame is the 12v one, the other is a 5v one (for direct USB connection).
Satnav Power Lead Grant Lewins on Feb 25, 2019
Easy connection into the CANBUS wiring harness point but, was recommended to also fit a Direct Battery Connection lead (by a BMW technician) to ensure that there was no 'power drain' by the Satnav when the ignition is turned off.
BMW sat nav lead Gary Robertson on Jan 13, 2019
Excellent lead very simple to connect to sat nav power lead and a direct connection to switched power in the Canbus
TOMTom BMW HArness Joseph Marsh on Dec 15, 2018
Very good quality product. Easy to install and worked first time.
mr alex rae on Dec 04, 2018
does the job, easy
Bmw lead Rob Tranter on Nov 12, 2018
A good product simple to use
Perfect item. Mills on Nov 06, 2018
Perfect item for plugging into aux power. I simply soldered this connector to a Oxford dual USB and it works a treat. Horrendously expensive for a plug and three wires. Unfortunately I had to pay out as I could not locate an alternative part.
Satnav lead Brian crossland on Oct 22, 2018
Easy to connect with heat shrink connectors, works fine
Perfect solution Kevin Arnold on Sep 19, 2018
This cable made the fitting of my Tom Tom Sat Nav easy and professional. Now only comes on with the bikes ignition is on which is great.
Works perfectly Matt Lawes on Jun 28, 2018
As other reviews have said, this lead just makes it so easy. Fits to the GPS connector of my 08 R1200GS, the wires are numbered and it was then just a simple job of soldering them to my Garmin lead. Works perfectly!
Wiring connector Peter Fraser on Jun 12, 2018
Easy to fit with clearly labelled connecting wires. A little expensive but does the job.
Mr Gareth on May 17, 2018
Undeniably expensive for what it is but if you want an ignition controlled live (there is a short delay in power off after ignition is turned off which can be used to your advantage) to power a SAT NAV or a as a trigger for a fuse box (power hub) WITHOUT the need to cut into the bikes original wiring harness then this works perfectly.
Sat Nav lead Danny on May 01, 2018
Excellent piece of kit, plugged straight into the plug next to the battery, two heat shrunken crimps on to the Sat Nav wires and job done ✅
Fantastic Service Lee Rickard on Apr 12, 2018
What fantastic service. I would recommend Nippy Normans every time. Great communication, fast delivery. :) :)
Mr Greg Smith on Apr 11, 2018
Perfect for my new TomTom and easy to fit if you own a soldering iron and know how to solder.
Just what I needed Shaun Stewart on Mar 23, 2018
Leads were clearly marked. Anyone with a little soldering experience will have no problem splicing the power lead in. Seal with heat shrink tubing to ensure a water tight seal.
Does what it says! Mike Denning on Feb 15, 2018
Good item. Worked well to connect my Tomtom to the wiring loom of the R1200RT LC 2015. No canbus issues.
satnav lead David Smith on Jan 30, 2018
Perfect product, made the sat nav installation much neater than going back to the socket or battery and it fires up when the ignition goes on. Look on the product description for the connection details - I missed them first look through! A bit pricey at £20 for a simple connector, but worth it.
Loupe David McMillan on Oct 23, 2017
Hoping this will allow me to finally fit the 660 I found on eBay, using some very expensive mounting pieces (Ram, arm and back-plate) although at my advanced years I needed a jeweller's loupe to read the numbered wires . .
Perfect Paul Bunyan on Oct 07, 2017
Does exactly what it says on the packet. I cut the wires short and used a 3 way waterproof connector kit (sold for pennies on eBay) so if I ever change sat-nav, I can just plug in the new one.
Power take off neil martyniuk on Oct 02, 2017
Great item, fit straight on with no hassle. Very good quality item and does exactly what it sais on the packet.

Connecting Lead for Sat Nav BMW Harness Gary Medlicott on Jul 19, 2017
Great service part arrived promptly and worked perfectly with the BMW Sat Nav Accessory Lead which is located alongside the battery. Good Click fit connectors which should survive any weather conditions the UK can throw at it.
Power cable Curtis Tooth on Jun 18, 2017
Great service and great product, very easy to fit.. thank you
Can bus connector Ken Russell on Jun 17, 2017
Item was as description.bought this to hard Wire a dash cam system so not have to cut into any wires.BE AWARE instructions say no 2 wire is not used and reviews on you tube say cut it off to make it today.I found out that it is needed DO NOT CUT OFF NO2 WIRE UNTIL YOU ARE SURE I found.it is needed to use as the ignition power source to come on and off with the key.unfortunately I had problems with power current but found others with my bike had same problem so ended up tapping into wire.
A great lead Sean Rima on Jun 17, 2017
Ideal for wiring a TomTom Rider 400 series onto the BMW Canbus system. Stays on for a few moments after the ignition is turned off
Mrs Deborah Robinson on May 24, 2017
Great product as always, very easy to fit and perfect for the job.
Garmin lead connection Andrew on Apr 30, 2017
Very effective if somewhat overpriced connecting lead for my garmin onto my BMW K1200S canbus plug. Efficient service from NN. As long as you know how to solder the wires and have all the kit to do it (shrink wrap etc), a relatively straight forward job but a bit of a faff with taking off the body panels to house the loom. Wires are labelled so this makes connection a breeze. Took quite a while to complete the job but SATNAV now turns off with ignition and will never drain the battery!
Mr Graham Bllyth on Apr 10, 2017
Very useful bit of kit . Makes the job a lot easier and looks great.
Mr Pete on Apr 09, 2017
Did exactly what it said on the tin and saved me a fortune rather than getting bmw to wire up my satnav. With some advice from the Internet on which cable wa which and what to solder this thing was a steal :))))
Mr Keith McGreavy on Apr 01, 2017
Made fitting my Tomtom rider a doddle.
Happy Mike Outlaw on Mar 30, 2017
Very happy. Plugged straight in and no problems at all. Nice bit of kit . Sat Nav now live with ign on
Mr. Andrew Hood on Mar 25, 2017
Great product and excellent instruction
Great Product Stephen on Mar 13, 2017
Fast delivery and relatively easy to fit on my bike. Had to remove the screen and part of the dash but all worked as expected.
Great product Pål Kønig on Feb 21, 2017
Earlier I had my gps connected strait to the battery. So when I forgot to turn it of it drained my battery. Now when it is connected to the can-bus plug it is not an issue. Recomended :-)
Sat nab lead Martin on Feb 21, 2017
Great lead just the job quick delivery
mr christopher hickey on Feb 15, 2017
Fantastic product which made the job of fitting my sat nav easy and neat.
Motorcycle nut Jeroen Penterman on Feb 14, 2017
Works as specified. Fast delivery.
No, it's not cheap, but it's a better solution than slapping €200 on a Garmin Zumo 660, adding no functionality and calling it a BMW Navigator.
Great Goods and Service Paul Mewse on Feb 07, 2017
Great product and super fast delivery thank you
TomTom lead Chris Ford on Nov 10, 2016
Just to say I bought one of these leads for my R NINE T and there was a connector, cable-tied to the frame right beside the BMW DIN socket.

Mr Mark Piercy on Aug 25, 2016
Good but pricey for what it is.
Mr J on Aug 23, 2016
Initially wiring directions were sketchy compared to web directions.
Multi meter sorted it, no issue with product, good job. If it had connectors rather than solder ends it would be perfect.(being fussy)
Garmin bike specific lead Michael Walker on Aug 18, 2016
2 minute job to solder to your garmin power lead. Plugs straight into the plug under k1300 battery cover. Don't forget to heat shrink your soldered joints.
simplissime daniel on Aug 14, 2016
parfait, permet l'installation d'un gps directement sur le canbus sans se prendre la tête.bien mieux qu'une alimentation sur batterie
GPs wiring harness Kurt Dorey on Jul 23, 2016

Fits perfectly to the can bus plug - easy and convenient way to power up a satnav.
Perfect Mark on Apr 19, 2016
Perfect for what I needed and real easy to connect to the TomTom leads and in turn to the Canbus connector.
Wiring made easy. Vic on Apr 18, 2016
Wiring anything on a bike can be hell , but this is literally just plug and play , couldn't be easier . Even I managed it in 15 mins.
GPS lead John Stack on Mar 31, 2016
This lead is simplicity itself. The three leads are easily identifiable and soldering them to my Tomtom lead made a good connection. The lead then just plugs staight into the plug provided by BMW near the headstock of the bike. You then have a GPS that works via the ignition.
TomTom lead Alan on Mar 25, 2016
Great service from nippy norms again .lead very easy to connect up , made fitting sat nav very easy .
GPS harness Stephen Mills on Mar 18, 2016

Excellent piuece of kit if not a little expensive
John Stoddart on Feb 09, 2016
good service & product
Mark Rooms on Jan 17, 2016
Not too much to say as it is a plug with wires other than it is a multiuse plug with wires which for this purpose only needs two of them! Fortunately the packaging and the wires are marked 1, 2 and 3 to make sure that you join the right ones up.
Paul Sumner on Jan 14, 2016
Perfect product. Super fast dispatch. Nippy indeed!
Edward Muldoon on Jan 12, 2016

I did think it was expensive before it arrived but after inspection it is a complex plug and is a quality item perfect fit and plenty cable attached no hassle at all.
Nigel Costa on Oct 27, 2015
Very easily fitted, cables are identified which saves the use of ASN altimeter.
Shrink wrapped joint, great.
Ola Eriksson on Oct 22, 2015
Mounted the items on my bike with Garmin Montana 650 and so far it works great./
glenn jewitt on Oct 16, 2015
does the job all though a little expensive
martin macrae on Oct 06, 2015
The owner manual for the F800GT does not explain where the plug is for this lead:, When looking forward on the bike, The Plug is normally strapped to the right-hand side of the battery by a fiber strand. This lead and plug can be moved and held by a tywraps, and this socked-lead then fed through the fairing to any specific point to fit a GPS. Lead polarity as indicated works on the TomTom 400. This plug remains powered for several minutes after turning the main switch off.
Mike Basset on Oct 06, 2015
Brilliant! Especially on the K12 as the harness is right by the battery, under the cover. Easy install with good instructions. Works a treat, thanks Nippy
Michael Geraghty on Sep 23, 2015
Excellent service product as advertised fast delivery.
Ian Cartledge on Sep 21, 2015
Does what it says - what more can you ask
Stephen Buckle on Sep 14, 2015
Does exactly what it's designed for. Plugged directly into the power take off for a satnav that installed on the right-hand side of the battery. I just used a couple of bullet connectors and shrink wrap to link the power lead from my TomTom. Power is now supplied to the satnav when the ignition is on and when the ignition issturned off the power continues to be supplied for about 30secs andpowers off.

Thanks very much to whoever mentioned where the socket was to plug this into. I was attempting to fit it in to the wrong socket originally!!!!! Located correct socket and it works a treat, as mentioned in other review, powers off after a minute. Cracking bit of kit.

Phil Hayes on Aug 23, 2015
Delivery fee was a bit high but you got the item to me quicker that purchasing it locally and waiting for it to arrive. Overall price was also cheaper so not too unhappy with the delivery fee. I would be happy to deal with you again and recommend your service. Your site was recommended to me by a work associate.
Nick Fogg on Aug 14, 2015
Ok so i bought this a few months ago and couldn't get it to work on my bike but after reading some forums and measuring the voltage from the canBus plug on right side of headstock my wiring solution is thus.
3 Not used
this now works great and turns on and off with ignition I have also confirmed this with BMW S1000RR HP4
Stuart Ball on Aug 05, 2015
Worked perfectly to connect my Zumo 660 into the CanBus switched supply via the accessory plug under the headstock (once I managed to find the plug).

Easy to install - just follow the instructions enclosed. On my satnav ready bike it was just a case of unplugging the lead to the BMW satnav mount (I mount a camera on it), plugging in my lead and clipping on a few cable ties to keep things tidy....
Dave Bradield on Jul 12, 2015
This connecting lead is a great piece of kit. I normally plug the sat nav into the auxiliary power socket which in hindsight was a pain. The socket you need to connect the lead to is near the horn on the left side looking from the front of your bike. There is a similar socket near the headstock which is a little further back this is NOT the socket you require. The lead has worked as described and after turning the ignition off the TOM TOM 400 shuts down automatically after about 15 seconds.

Removes the need for a fused cable to the battery. Kudos to BMW for providing the connector on the bike and the cable manufacturer for making it available at a sensible price.
Nigel Glenister on Jun 10, 2015
Great connector, makes adding accessory easy. No splicing or horrible piggy back connectors
Paul Maher on Jun 04, 2015
Easy to install. Does as described
Mark Jones on May 28, 2015
Very happy with the lead, made installing the Sat Nav very simple but also very neat and tidy.
Andrew Gibbs on May 27, 2015
very use full
Nick George on May 19, 2015
Did exactly what was required.
Michael Gray on May 13, 2015
Arrived quickly really easy to fit just plug in and play great product
Chris Jones on May 10, 2015
Perfect little plug that I have connected to a Garmin GPS and Autocom unit. This is so much easier to use than finding a suitable powered cable or connecting directly to the battery, in my opinion; it makes a very discrete and flexible option for powering accessories on the GS.
Peter Hearnden on May 04, 2015
Does what it says
Lee Freeman on May 01, 2015
First class item, ideal for connections and hides away any or all unsightly cables.
Timothy Hall on Apr 30, 2015
Does what it says. Need some soldering skills, otherwise easy enough to install
Pete Smith on Apr 28, 2015
Does what it says on the tin.
Alex Bradley on Apr 19, 2015
Exactly what I needed, soldered, shrink-wrapped and attached. GPS working fine. Good piece of kit!
Graham Allan on Apr 10, 2015
Does exactly what it's meant to. Used it to run an accessory fuse box from for sat nav, intercom, music.
Plug and play
gary nelson on Apr 02, 2015
worked perfect as described, rapid delivery from NN
Marcus Simeoni on Mar 30, 2015
Couldn't be easier! Well worth the money for such convenience.
Steve Morris on Mar 25, 2015
Easily fitted and works perfectly, fast efficient delivery by `Nippy Normans'
Ben Knight on Mar 06, 2015
Loom adaptor exactly as described, with pin outs clearly labelled on packaging. Order processed and delivered expediently.
Jon Cox on Mar 02, 2015
Dead easy to use, on my 56 plate K1200GT the connector that this lead plugs into is cable tied to the horseshoe shaped support when you remove the battery cover. Just remove the plug cap off the bikes plug and plug this connector in, job done.
James Nyhan on Feb 22, 2015
Perfect item for connecting Garmin Sat Nav to existing socket on bike. Very simple to fit - clips into place and then crimp or solder to sat nav leads. Delivery and packing top notch - would highly recommend this product and service.
Dick Coultas on Feb 20, 2015
Dead easy to fit. Much nicer than cobbling up some leads to the battery or a fused spur.
john robinson on Feb 19, 2015
everything worked first time, although the wire coding could have been clearer
Wil L on Feb 09, 2015
Used the lead to connect a 590LM to my 800GS, and with a little soldering and heat shrinking it was good to go.
I am confused as to why there are three wires when you only need two, but it’s safe to ignore the surplus one.
Rob Phillips on Jan 31, 2015
This makes the job so easy and neat.
A bit of heat shrink on the joins gives a really tidy finish.
Sat Nav on and off with the ignition. Perfect.
Vernon Morgan on Jan 18, 2015
A neat product that makes the whole set up more professional.
Vernon Morgan on Jan 18, 2015
A neat product that makes the whole set up more professional.
John Laws on Jan 12, 2015
Wish I'd got this earlier to connect the Garmin and free up the front socket. Simple enough to find the connector but would be better if it was weatherproof.
Neil Loveday on Dec 25, 2014
Excellent piece of kit,does what it says on the tin
MIKE HAMMOND on Dec 08, 2014
Item works well on the bike. Easy to fit and good value for money.
VERY IMPRESSED with the fact that you have altered the instructions on your web site in response to my immediate comments I sent to you when I received the item with its additional enclosed instructions.
Martin Lockley on Nov 04, 2014
Great piece of kit that avoids cable splicing. Only confusing issue was only needed two wires out, why provide three and then advise, 'do not use'? No matter, fits easily and GPS up and running.
David Twist on Oct 29, 2014
Does exactly what it says on the tin.
Kevin Farrington on Oct 26, 2014
As always delivery great and cable when fitted does the job. However with my Tom Tom Rider does not turn off with ignition. However this is a Tom Tom issue and not a NN / product issue. If you want to charge satnav on the bike - this does the job
wayne brummitt on Oct 20, 2014
this product saves you loads of time and messing. connects to the loom in 5 minutes. well worth the money.
David Bowdler on Oct 06, 2014
My first bike fitted with Canbus wiring. I needn't have been concerned. The plug was in the right place as described, and the part purchased fitted perfectly.
Text book installation. No hitches. Well Done to Nippy Normans!!!
Richard Briscoe on Oct 04, 2014
I found that this lead was the perfect item to connect a Garmin 660 into the plug under the dash of my bike. It arrived very quickly freom ordering and with only having to solder 2 wires plus associated heat shrink connected directly into the bike loom. all in all very happy with both Nippy Normans and also the lead.
Russell Bridge on Sep 26, 2014
Simply solder to your Sat Nav wiring for a fast easy plug in connection to the bikes power supply. No errors. Couldn't be easier. Could be cheaper.
Terry Fellowes on Sep 25, 2014
Makes it simple to wire in GPS etc but you do still need crimp tools to connect the wiring
lee flint on Sep 20, 2014
Does exactly what is says on the tin!
James Billing on Sep 19, 2014
Does the job nicely - once I located the auxiliary socket hidden under the fuel tank with the aid of CW Motorcycles!
Alan James on Sep 19, 2014
quick delivery,straight forward to fit
Trevor Bates on Sep 07, 2014
Does what is says on the tin. Easy to use and provided switched power for my Sat Nav and Autocom. Worth every penny.
William Twigg on Aug 03, 2014
Once interface connector found (on battery +ve cable following a bit of internet investigation), connector worked fine with a Zumo 550 - part delivered promptly from Nippy following order placement on-line.
Jim Darroch on Aug 01, 2014
Does exactly what it says, easy to install and a decent quality connector. Would give it 5 stars if it was a little cheaper.
Steve Hall on Jun 24, 2014
I could not get this from the main dealer, found it more by luck than judgement. It uses the existing wiring harness that you can simply plug your charging wire into your GPS (TomTom) in my case. Delivered promptly and perfect for a good job.
damon howarth on Jun 23, 2014
Ideal piece of,kit for the job. Much better than messing in the loom
Nils-Erik Ringlander on Jun 04, 2014
Quick delivery of ordered product. It functions to my expectation
Wayne Baker on May 29, 2014
Item does exactly what it says - simple connection to the canbus system and my GPS is now fully plugged in allowing it to start with the engine and switch off when the engine is switched off.
Chris Saunby on May 16, 2014
Great piece of kit. Easy to install, providing a simple way to obtain a live feed for sat nav or similar. Excellent service from NN's
Dave Rogers on May 13, 2014
Perfect for splicing to satnav lead. Easy fit with numbered wires.
Lee Richens on May 05, 2014
Excellent bit of kit. Solder to existing Garmin wires and then simply plug & play.
Alf Garnett on Mar 12, 2014
Very easy to fit indeed and does exactly what it says it would. Excellent service yet again from Nippys.
Barry Graham on Mar 01, 2014
Used this to trigger relay for my add ons (satnav & running lights) saves splitting the loom and all the problems that might bring, would have been nice to have the wires in standard colours rather than all yellow but at least the wires are marked.
david jackett on Nov 28, 2013
Stefano Calise on Nov 22, 2013
Installed without any problem, it perfectly works.
Thanks and talk to you soon, Stefano.
Wayne Gibbons on Nov 18, 2013
Service was good,delivery super quick,an item not available in Australia that I could find
Neil D on Nov 15, 2013
Great little item that saved a lot of time and effort. If it was black rather than white then it would be 100% perfect
Djurdje Bojovic on Oct 23, 2013
Fit and works perfectly.
mark hancock on Aug 13, 2013
Straight forward fitting instructions and simple to fit, plugged straight into bike harness.
Graham Payne on Jul 19, 2013
A quick way to add a GPS without breaking into canbus wiring. Switches off GPS about a minute after ignition switched off.
HARVEY GARTON on Jul 15, 2013
NOT HAD TIME TO FIT YET BUT IS WELL MADE.
Tim Abbott on Jul 08, 2013
Does exactly as specified. Expensive for piece of wire and a connector but that's BMW for you.
Roland Burn on Jul 03, 2013
Perfect fit and simple to wire in to existing Garmin Zumo connector which must include the 5V regulator.
Roland Burn on May 26, 2013
Easy installation, provides a neat and simple solution to connecting a GPS. Simplzz!
Ian Castle on May 02, 2013
Simple and does what it says. Would be useful to include in line step down resistor to micro USB plug as I have had to order from China for £1.09 +p&p to complete satnav lead.
Tony Turpin on Apr 28, 2013
Used initially to trigger Fuzeblock switchable fuse panel then PDM60 Power Distribution Module. Works perfectly and means that the PDM60 and wiring can be unplugged when the bike is serviced as it is velcroed to the back of the airbox.
Kevin McNally on Apr 13, 2013
Wired to my Garmin Zumo 660. Works perfectly.
Donald Leitch on Mar 31, 2013
easy to fit and use
jeff oswald on Mar 30, 2013
very easy fit, ten minute installation, great value.
Geoff Barnes-Warden on Mar 13, 2013
I used this lead to splice into my Zumo 550 lead. Perfect. I also sliced a power lead off to work my comm's unit. And to top it all, its great value.
Andrew Blucher on Mar 11, 2013
Great bit of kit. Made fitting my Garmin Zumo 350 a very straight forward job. 5 mins with a soldering iron and shrink wrap over joint. Take care plugging into socket on bike as pins are very fine and easily bent if not lined up properly.
Steven Tolley on Dec 03, 2012
Perfect fit, 10 minutes to solder and apply heat shrink.
neville fairhead on Nov 07, 2012
fits direct to the connector under the head light,for the gps, good price,quick delivery
Stirling Scott on Nov 07, 2012
Very useful connector with helpful instructions. Allows an easy connection to be made on CANBUS bikes for a switched satnav supply. A couple of minutes with the soldering iron to splice the Zumo loom to the tails of this connector makes for a perfect job. Highly recommended.
martin barnett on Oct 08, 2012
saved time and didnt need to mess about cutting into bike wires.Nippy Normans very good will use again.
Chris Page on Jul 18, 2012
Exactly as stated, it fits the original bmw wiring socket and fires up the sat nav on ignition without problem,perfect!.
David Wallis on Jul 06, 2012
Easy to fit, much better way to connect sat nav etc than wiring direct to the battery.
Barry Dickinson on Apr 09, 2012
Does what it says. Good tail length for joining onto loom
Craig Goodwin on Mar 28, 2012
This cable allows me to tap into a power source in the CANBUS to switch the relay of my add on Centech fuse panel. Using this cable allows me to tap in without cutting or splicing any wires. Bike wiring harness remains intact. This could easily be unplugged to get back to strictly OEM.
Paul Darby on Mar 21, 2012
No problems. Leads numbered and instruction in relation to which lead to use was included.
Stephen Stallebrass on Nov 05, 2011
With a little practice using the soldering iron, it's easy to splice this lead into your 660 power loom and plug into your canbus. For best results cover joints using shrink wrap. No more flt battery because you forgot to turn off your sat nav... it will now ask if you want it to stay on or it will turn off automatically after 30 seconds. Great bit of DIY kit.
