    Help with BMW GPS Navigator Adventure

    I bought the GPS Navigator Adventure and the manual does not say how or where to put GPX files on it. I have figured out how to create the files now, but does anyone know: 1. What folder to put the files in on the GPS unit 2. What choice on the screen I go to (Waypoints, Where to, or other)...

    Software for creating a route that can load onto GPS

    Power for GPS?

    I have a Garmin GPS that I would like to mount to my 2008 Bandit 1250s. The GPS power cable has a fuse built in. I would like to hardwire it so that it only has power when I turn the key on. I previously had it on my Honda VTX and I connected power to an available auxillary in the headlight...
