Re: Retro Fitting New Road Angel
I have a new Road Angel fitted in my GT. I have the bracket mounted on the windscreen at the bottom right hand corner, as low as possible. I got a ciger adapter from Maplins (99p) and soldered a couple of tails to it to connect to power. There is a great earth point in the fuse box area above your right knee (if that makes sense) and I used the power from the back of the cigar lighter. Wasn't too fiddly, but involved removing the panel at the side of the gear housing (just pulls off) and the ashtray assembly. Probably took about half an hour to do.
I used the cigar adapter bit so that I didn't wreck the power lead, just in case I decided to sell it at a later date. There is a 12 to 5V transformer on a pcb inside the plug that you could connect to, but the apapter makes it an easy fit.
Much better that having the cable plugged into the cigar socket.
