    Hi all,

    I need to get my Garmin Zumo 390LM GPS unit hard-wired into my '13 BMW F 700 GS but am utterly clueless about what I need or how to do it - so does anyone know of a bike technican/mechanic in Sydney (ideally as near to the CBD or Lower North shore as possible) that I can get to do it for me?

    Before anyone asks, my BMW dealer won't do it as it's not an official BMW GPS unit (i.e: a BMW Navigator, which is just a Garmin 660 with a 'BMW' label instead of 'Garmin' and a $200 higher price tag - typical BMW!) and they charge like a wounded bull anyway.

    I know this is probably not a complex job but my unit comes with no instructions about hard-wiring to the battery except to recommend a "qualified technician" does it and I haven't been able to find a good guide on doing this myself on the web.

    Correct forum: Businesses and Service Providers.
