This is bike related. I have a fused red wire and a black wire from the sat Nav. I am attempting to connect it to a switched wire. Presume Red is live that goes into the switched live wire when ignition is turned on then the black wire goes to an earth point?

I am really tempted however to wire it onto a male cigarette lighter adaptor and use the switched socket in the bike glove box for ease. I have a red lead and a black lead, which is positive, which is negative? Red positive I presume but which wire does the red connect to on the cigarette adpator. Would it be the red central pin then the black goes to the two side metal bits?


Many thanks.

With Google there is no such thing as a silly question!
