Problem adding GPS adapter to 2003 GL-1800

Postby cal3san » Thu Jun 04, 2015 4:49 am



Finally getting around to installing one of Scott's GPS adapters to my "new to me" 2003 G<-1800 and have hit a BIG bump in the road.

I can not find any BIG RED SIX PIN connectors under the left pocket. I did find a small red connection and a small white connection. One of the previous owners installed a power tap in the pocket. (I did check with gent I bought the trike from and he has no knowledge of its installation.)

Top connection: red to white is power tap. Bottom connection: white to white is a audio hookup. Can use the later to play GPS but it is through AUX only.

Any suggestions?

It's in there. You just have to fish around for it. Follow the lead for your headset connection. I believe that's the connector you're looking for.

Yes, this is the red connector you're looking for:



Follow your headset connector wire, and it will take you straight to it.

Thank you gentlemen. Mission accomplished.

Didn't know I'd have to "play dentist" and use a set of forcep pliers to yank the BURIED, and I do mean BURIED, connection from under the shelter. Guess the hard part was getting over the fear of "what if I'm pulling on the wrong thing and really screw something up".
