Question Hard wiring a Syrius Indago Sat Nav

I am totally non-technical! I have the above and the hard wire lead. I know from the manual that the Indago charges at 5v. - not 12v.
Any help / suggestions on how best to do this much appreciated.
I have mounted the Indago on a Brodit angled clip so would like the hard wire lead to come out of the silver flapped cubby hole under the radio!
Many thanks!!!

tony - what lead would you be using if you were not hard wiring it?

There must be a convertor in there somewhere, and this will need to be used and connected to the 12V hard wire you have put it, to get 5V out...

Any chance you can provide details of the Brodit clip (part no. etc) you used for mounting the Indago

I have one of these units too and am looking for the correct Brodit mount to use

You are right - there is a converter. I did not make myself very clear - I was after help in where to best get a 12v. feed from and how to route the wiring without taking everything to bits. One thing I don't want is any visible wiring!

I went to dsldevelopments.com and spoke to a chap called David - VERY helpful. The mount I used was:
Brodit ProClip for Honda Civic - Angled mount
Item No. : 653733 for Years 06-07 in All Countries - there are two other mounts available - one that sits right by the passengers seat edge and a vent clip but I didn't like either of them.
I also bought a tilt and swivel that screws to the mount. Then I used a mini move clip - half of the clip is stuck to the tilt and swivel and the other half to the indago. I had to cut down the clip and ended up fitting it over the serial number sticker on the Indago.
It is a bit of a fiddle to fit and is quite close to the gearstick, but looks very neat. Be warned - make sure when you fit everything together that you can still get the charger plug into its socket on the back of the Indago! Hope this helps!!!

Just to say I got my Brodit mount for my PDA from DSL Developments. They are amazingly nice and helpful!

I'm using the vent mount. I can post pictures if anyone wants to see. With the PDA on there it does obscure the CD slot. Not a major problem.
