    Simplest without dash panel removal is pick your favorite fused circuitry and run wires to the mounting location. Or you can remove the panel where your accesory outlet resides and wire in at that location.

    Hardwiring in the unit only supplies power, not sure if you left the unit in the "on" position it will remain in that manner. If so, just pick a power circuit controlled by the ignition switch.

    You can add a 12v outlet under the dash and tie it into one of the other 12v circuits. I'm not sure if they turn off with the key like they do in the 04 oddys but if they do then when you turn off your car the gps should shut down. I installed 3 12vs under my dash one for my gps that I tied into the original 12v circuit so it would turn off with the car another that would turn off with the car that i conected to my sirius satelite radio and another that stays on that I have conected to the cell phone. I attached a pic from looking outside in. Here's a link to the whole thread https://www.odyclub.com/forums/showth...&pagenumber=1. Hope this helps.
