Re: sena sm10

I hard wired mine to the courtesy light on my first trial and it worked out great. I used the cig light wire that came with the unit, cut off the end and crimped the 2 leads to the terminal of the courtesy light and to the fround, the other end has the mini USB and plugs in the back of the SM10.
Then I decided to add a Blue Sea fuse box under the seat and run wires to the nose cone and power the SM10, radar detector, and Zumo.

Re: sena sm10

The rear seat heat plug is easier to get to & give you switched power.
