To let my family know where I am, I use a Family Locator - GPS Tracker APP called Life360. Reasonable annual cost ($24.99 a year) and it is always on and at your finger tips as long as you have your phone, which everyone does it seems. As long as the phone is on and the battery is good, It tracks your phone.

I have one of the Firecreek Ignition covers I purchased on Ebay for $30 but have not installed it on my GL1500. I have my Garmin GPS mounted in that position so there is nowhere to install accessory gauges in that area. The first pic is of my old Street Pilot before I installed the Garmin 1490 in a waterproof zipper case. Here I was on Mt Evans in Colorado. Notice the Altitude.
