A bus bar is simply a block of metal with a series of screws in it. You connect the bus bar to the battery/battery switch and then connect all your devices - GPS/Nav Lights etc - to the bus bar.

Your might want to look at something like the Blue Sea 5025 ST - its a fuse box with negative bus bar. Makes for quite a compact tidy solution.
