There's little point in wiring something with such a small current draw directly to the battery. If you tap into a wire on a switched circuit, such as the headlight, the positioning lights (the little bulbs on either side of the headlight) or the tail light, the zumo will come on with the key and turn off with the key. When you turn off the key the zumo will ask you if you want to stay powered on and you'll have 30 seconds to say yes or no, or if 30 seconds passes it shuts down automatically. Wherever you decide to get power, yes, make sure you have a fuse of an appropriate rating between the power source and the zumo. The fuse is designed to blow if too much current surges through the wire. Better to destroy a $1 fuse than a $600 GPS.
