I added a switch to my 2012 a few months ago, and wish I would have done it the day I brought it home. Sure would have saved a lot of frustration from forgetting to start the darn GPS...


Thanks OP for posting this!!

Smile Availability (or NOT) of Radio Shack Rocker Switch Part # 275-0730

The availability of the Radio Shack Rocker Switch Part Number 275-0730 that I used may become problematical as Radio Shack has issues. Duh!

You can also "Google" the phrase <Round Button 2 Pin SPST On/Off Rocker Switch>. Through Amazon.com you can get 10 of these switches for $2.49 (less than 25 cents each), Sears will sell you 5 of them for $3.99, etc., etc. There seem to be hundreds of folks out there selling this switch for very competitive prices.

Also, there are virtually identical switches, for a few pennies more that have LED On/Off indicators. But that seems like overkill IMHO and additional unnecessary wiring work. YMMV of course.

BTW, the diameter of the switch I used (the hole you need to drill) is 25mm or roughly 1 inch (0.98" to be exact). I'd suggest checking the dimensions of the switch you are looking at on-line before committing to buying it.

I never did catch if this speed signal interrupt defeats the headlight adjustment interlock...anyone try it yet?

Thumbs up One Day !!!

I'm tired of having to stop to start my NAV system too and will do this mod later this year.

Thanks for the how-to for the 2012's.

Thanks,

One of the first things I did when I bought my 2014 wing was to build a bypass and install it under the Nav panel. I programmed a $3.00 Arduino Nano to wait a preset time and then trigger the button presses necessary to bypass the nag screen. One of several problems with the commercial system (I forgot who makes it) was that you had to be on the Nav screen for it to work. (The other problem was that it was not waterproof, so I never installed it.) Mine works regardless of the current screen. Since there is no way to bypass the nag screen if the trunk or a saddlebag is open, I installed a waterproof switch to manually trigger the bypass logic. But I rarely use the switch these days since I've gotten in the habit of giving each saddlebag a good push before turning ignition on.

Care to share your Arduino sketch?

I would, if I still had it. I needed to reinstall my OS a couple years ago, so I made a backup and validated it. Unfortunately, Acronis screwed me because the backup was corrupt. I lost a lot of work, photos, etc.

It's not a difficult sketch to create. From what I remember, I used 3 micro-relays, wired across the Nav Panel buttons N/O and a fourth relay wired into the speed sense line N/C. The code ran a timer for 30 seconds, I believe, and then pressed the buttons (triggered the relays) to switch to the Nav screen and acknowledge the nag message. If the trunk or a saddlebag was open, it broke, so I added a button to manually initiate the bypass process even if riding. You will need flyback diodes across the relays and debounce code for the button.

I'm not going to rewrite it unless the unit I built fails, but if you want to write your own, I will be happy to help.

Thanks Bob. That's more enough info for me to create something similar. Like you, I'd prefer to have the nav system taken care of automatically so I don't need to do a thing!
