This is a nice little box, about the size of a packet of cigarettes or playing cards, whichever you prefer. Sealed against water ingress, save for the interface port for connecting to your computer. Six coloured wires for your accessories and one black for ground, one blue one for a ground trigger, one grey one for an ignition trigger and a red live.Connecting it is simple, live and ground to the battery and an ignition trigger if required, eg headlight.The unit comes with some twist connectors which I think are quite common in the USA as automotive connectors. The programming software is windows only but there is a beta version that runs on Mac and Windows. Nice timed on/off delay can be set. I have it set so that some extra DRL's come on 20 sections after the ignition switch is turned, it gives me more than enough time to start the bike. I also have a delay off on those lights - useful for when you park in the dark and could do with a little lighting whilst getting your kit together. The various trigger mechanisms are listed below.IGNITION TRIGGER – Circuit activates with the ignition trigger.IGNITION TRIGGER (with time delay off) – Circuit activates with ignition trigger, time delay off.GROUND TRIGGER – Circuit activates with the ground trigger.IGNITION OR GROUND TRIGGER – Circuit activates with Ignition trigger or ground trigger.IGNITION OR GROUND TRIGGER (with time delay off) – Circuit activates with Ignition trigger or ground trigger, time delay off. IGNITION AND GROUND TRIGGER – Circuit activates with both the ignition trigger and ground trigger.ALWAYS LIVE – Circuit is active without the use of triggers.I've been using mine for about 6 years now and the only issue is that sometimes it just forgets everything and does nothing. It requires you to disconnect the unit from the bike and re-programm it with your PC. It's a massive pain when it does it - there's no warning - but it has only happened 4 times in the 6 years I've had it. Le Chat
