    You need to solder a couple of wires to the cigar lighter bit of the tom tom **Do not cut the plug off as they run on about 5v and not 12v!**

    Then just connect to the wiring behind the car lighter socket or possible find an ignition power supply in the fuse box on left hand side of the dash. (The tomtom wont take much power at all so shouldnt matter which one you use (Probably pay to fuse you wires just to be extra safe)

    I'd go and buy a fag lighter extender cable, then wire it into the lighter supply behind the dash. The plug the Tom Tom cable into it and hide the whole lot behind the dash.
