Hi all.

There are many threads about getting a trigger point on older R1200GS on this forum but I am trying to work out what to do with a brand new R1200GS 2017.

I am fitting 2 Roadhawk Bullet cameras to the bike. They were previously on my F800 Adventure and the trigger came from a socket by the battery and I used the adaptor from Nippy Norman's (http://www.nippynormans.com/f650gs-08-on/lead-for-connecting-any-garmin-or-tomtom-gps-into-the-bmw-harness) to connect. This worked perfectly.

On the new 1200GS I discovered there is a blanked off socket under the right hand fairing which looked similar to the one I connected to on the F800 but it has 3 pins and the Nippy Norman's plug doesn't fit. (I have added links to the pictures as the embedded ones are not working at the moment)

But plugged into this socket was a PBT-GF10 plug with no wires attached but with 2 connectors. (https://www.dropbox.com/s/77jyracgd2fmnu2/20171204_083148%20%28Large%29.jpg?dl=0)

Now I'm guessing that if I can get a wire into this connector, one of the 2 connectors will provide a trigger.


So my questions are:

1. Is this white plug the trigger that I am looking for?
2. If it is which of the two pins do I connect into on the PBT-GF10 plug?
3. How do I get a cable into the PBT-GF10 plug!? ***UPDATE*** - I believe that the PBT-GF10 plug that is supplied with the bike is just a waterproof blank and I can't get wires into it, so I need a new plug preferably with cables already connected.

All help and advice gratefully received.
