Navi Power after Turned Off

I've pretty much been away for about five years. About the time I went on my hiatus someone was selling something that allowed the Navi (mine is a 2006) to have background power for a limited time. The purpose was so you didn't have to hit the "Ok" or "Acknowledge" or whatever the lock screen is that comes up everytime you restart the bike (within the window of time).

I've done some searches, but either my search isn't specific enough or too specific. Can someone remind me where I can get one if they're still available?

Thanks

If I remember correctly it was causing problems with some bikes... mostly with batteries that weren't 100%. So they quit making the products. I think there were some schematics available to build your own. Fred H. was the inventor...

William, I saw a thread about that. I got the impression that invention was to be able to use the GPS while the bike was in motion. I didn't think it was the same thing I was looking for. I appreciate the reply. Maybe I'll go back and see if I can find that, but I don't know if I'm going to go making something to avoid the minor annoyance. Just trying to throw money at it.

May be talking about the "auto enter module". You could turn the key on and ride, the module would get the Nav unit up and running automatically, every time. And, as I recall, some bikes for some strange reason refused to work with the module so they stopped making them.

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but if you turn your ignition key to accessory instead of turning it completely off when stopping for gas the navigator will stay on. Then make a stubby key for the gas door you won't have to go through the navi start up process.

I guess my memory isn't as good as it use to be... I don't know how I could possibly know that though...

I remember two different modules.

One was to supply power to the GPS for a limited amount of time after the key is turned off like ZekeValk is looking for.

The other was do the auto-enter thing that IronHorse1800 mentioned.

Definitely two different modules! Fred H. can probably recite how to do both in his sleep!

Jon Kennedy made the unit that held power on the GPS after the bike was shut off for about 30 minutes. I presented the idea to him and worked with him on the initial prototype and design. He stopped making it as well as many other GL1800 products he made and closed up shop.

I then worked with another company to develop the automatic enter button module, and later turned the idea and design over to Pete at Bike MP3. I think Pete made them for a short while and then he also gave up on them, though I'm not sure why, mine has worked flawlessly for many years, but I'm not using the one Pete built. I forget the name of the original company I worked with but I could probably dig it up if needed.

Here is the guy I worked with on the initial design for the Auto acknowledge circuit, which Pete later built at my suggestion. All you really need is a variable timer and two relays. Pete removed the variable POT on the timer, which I believe is why he had problems with his.

231Wingman, Thanks for the suggestion. I made the side pocket and gas keys years ago - actually helped a couple other people make them, but sometimes when you're out on a day ride with a group and you're on and off the bikes it's not a good idea to leave your key in your bike....at least it doesn't feel that way to me. Sometimes when getting back on either I take off too fast or just plain forget to hit the enter button. I actually have done the hack where I have a switch that disconnects the speed sensor (I think that's what it does) so I can run through the enter sequence while moving, but that makes my wife nervous sometimes (along with a lot of things I do on the bike).

Ok, so bottom line, I missed the boat. Thanks all for the replies. If someone runs across this thread and wants to pull theirs out before they sell their bike I'd be interested. Or maybe if there's a lot of interest we can get KP Technologies to do a limited run?
