Installation is easy. I found a good place under the seat for the PDM, within easy reach of the battery. Power leads are just dangling wires, but the system comes with Posi-Lock butt splices. On my long-term V-Strom, I'm using three of the six circuits for power to the top box, GPS, and a cord for heated gear. Over six months of constant use, the PDM has been dead reliable. In fact, my only complaint is that the USB connection is on the bottom of the sealed box, so you might have to dismount the unit to gain access to the port. In all, this is a clever piece of engineering that turns a bundle of wires, fuses, and relays into a neat, elegant package.
