My V1 doesn't like my Zumo


Whip

Recommended Posts

The V1 is being set off by the ZUMO.

 

When I turn the Zumo off it stops.

 

This is how I have them set up.

Are they on the same circuit?

I'm wondering if having them on the same circuit is causing it. I had something similar happen in my truck.

I'm wondering if your GXM-30 is causing some interference with it being mounted in such close proximity to the V-1.

 

Are you sure it's not the metal plate in your head that is doing it? eek.gifgrin.gif

"Try removing the tank bag off & see what happens????"

 

Tank bag has nothing to do with the ZUMO nor the V1.

GXM-30 could be causing the interference......does not happen to my Escort Solo 2.

 

The metal plates only interferes with my helmet size and Al's ear plugs when I try to use my Track helmet.

 

 

Anyone else???????

Nothing to do with having them on the same circuit and I doubt the GXM antenna has anything to do with it either. When mounted on my Blackbird my antenna is in far closer proximity to my V1 and it never triggers. I don't have a Zumo but do have a 2730 which, I'm sure, has very similar electronics. Both are fed from the same power circuit, a buss inside my tank bag.

 

I would look to the power cable of the V1 and be sure there is still a healthy connection between it and the unit. RJ-11 connectors are not particularly good at maintaing connection when things get flexed. I have had a couple of those cables lose the internal crimp.

1. Sell zumo

2. Get 276 or 376

 

or my favorite...

 

1 Sell V1

2. get Escort 8500

 

Now don't you all agree with me so fast!lmao.gif

 

All kidding aside- I would check with Mike Valentine or his people and see if they are getting the same complaints- might be a local oscillator issue in the zumo, in which case you would have to separate them a lot more than would be practical...

All good advice....I think I'll put them together in my car and see what happens.

 

And I'll call the V1 dudes tomorrow.

I have read on other sites where the xm radio interferes with radar detectors. I haven't seen anything specific concerning the V-1 and this problem but who knows. Did you try just disconnecting the xm and see if there is still a problem?

My V1 is mounted within 10" of the Zumo and antenna....no problems. Both units operate normally for the last 6 months.

Problem stops when I turn off the Zumo/XM/Mp3(all in one).

Move the hockey puck. We had issues/discussions on this board about XM radios causing radar interference back in the days when the first Roady came out. Conventional wisdom said 14-18" of separation was needed.

 

To test this, just unplug the XM and go for a ride.

 

Hope this helps.
