advise on gps

I just bought a used 05 lt without gps pre-wire. I like the garmin 2720 or 2820.
How do I find out how to install one? Any advise would be appreciated.

It's fairly easy. Figure out how you want to mount it (Moto Locker, RAM Mount, BMR Shelf, other). Then you can take power from the dash light using this cable from GPS City, which will provide power in accessory and on positions but not locked -

Mount your GPS, connect power, turn it on and go! Oh, maybe load a route or two so you know which way to turn.
