  1. power source for sat nav - XL700

    I've finally succumbed to a sat nav and am looking at how to wire it into my trusty Transalp (XL700VA). I'm sure that somewhere on this forum I've seen that there is a spare connector block in the front cowl that can be used as a power source - but can't for the life of me find it now! Any...
