    Extra can bus din socket

    If my memory serves me correctly I'm sure I read somewhere there is an unused power take off take off somewhere around the dash tank area. Ive converted my front one to the twin USB one and want another din socket to plug my BM battery charger in, can easily fab a mount out at work but can't find the power take off?
    Ideas chaps?

    If you don’t have the sat Nav fitted its there on the Rh side.
    Otherwise you need the kit for fitting the one under seat and just coil up the excess.

    Isn’t one under the seat.
    The kit from BMW plugs into the one under the dash and runs down under the seat where you drill a hole to fit it.

    I'm presuming you break into the existing lead with the double end much like my hexane does.

    Can you not run a fused lead directly to the battery and put an outlet somewhere handy thus you would also have a way of powering an airpump which canbus wont allow?
    Caution : May stop suddenly

    Bohling are usually pretty good at showing the breakdown of parts in any kit but none are shown.
    Ask your dealer to have a drill down as they can see different screens and maybe find just the cable but doubtful on this one.
    I’ll be using mine on the 1250 to form an extra on on the left to mirror the OE although with having the Quadlock bike charger it might not get used.
    Depends on how much of a ballache the bracket is to sort
