    I would have thought the 12v aux socket (if 12v) or the USB socket (if 5v) would be a good starting point.

    If that doesn't do it for you, try the search function; there have been many different posts for such.

    The TomTom Rider mounts have their own 12v to 5v regulator so need a 12v supply. The current draw is less than 1A so virtually any 12v switched live can be tapped into with a scotch lock (not everybody's cup of tea but fitted correctly they work well) add a 1A inline fuse to be sure, to be sure. If you're uncertain if a cable is 12v switched live back probe some connectors with a pin and multimeter. If you don't understand that or are looking for a step by step pictorial shell out some hard earned and have it installed by a competent person.
