Hi,

I purchased a display for "motorcycles" which enables Apple CarPlay or Android Auto...
Similar to this
?si=KyDGBV8h1lgYuHZ3 and this https://www.amazon.com/CARabc-Portable-Motorcycle-Navigation-Waterproof/dp/B0D4Z1G6Y5

The device is supposed to connect via:
1) USB (which the Vespa doesn't have right?)
2) Wire it to the battery. (ideally it should go to a 12v switched source so it's off when bike is off right?)


so my questions
a) What's the cleanest way to do #2? Assuming I don't want to cut or drill anything is there a way to cleanly wire the power into the battery
b) The actual wiring seems to be straightforward, there's a ground wire and line wire which go to the battery terminals. Is it safe to do this?

1) I think the current Primavera does have USB charging in the glovebox.

a) remove panels and run the wires.
b) use a fuse. also recommend using a relay typically triggered by the ignition (many points that you can cut/join wire or insert y-split plugs).
