Hello can anyone help
I am installing a Sat Nav that needs a permanent 12 Volt feed to it.
Where would I be able to pick this feed up from. If it is from the fuse box how do I connect my cable into it

I think that you need a switched live,, it cannot be an all time live,,you need it so that it works while parked (key1) and when driving (key 2) Can you please check on this,,if the above is correct then the cigar lighter is a good easy place. If it does require a memory back up all time live,then the most convenient place is to tap into the main light feed and use an inline fuse to go to the memory back up

You should be able to pull out the lighter panel and get the connection from the back of it..

Alternative you could try to tap the live from the stereo connection plug
