Zumo / Treo / iPod / CB / Radar / B2B / XM / FRS / ???

Recommended Posts

I've read up on various posts & am more confused than when I started. Here's what I want to do - can someone explain how to do this?

 

1) Garmin Zumo 550 for GPS Duty

2) Same Zumo for XM

3) Pillion Intercom

4) iPod

4a) when not using iPod, MP3's from Zumo for shorter trips

5) CB for bike to bike, or when with a different group,

5a) FRS / GMRS

5b) Would love for both the above to use the BMW PTT button PN 99 99 0 000 193

6) Treo 650 (Cingular) integration

7) Valentine 1 Radar into headset as well

 

OK, I think that's it! dopeslap.gif

 

I understand an Autocom or Baehr will likely be required. I already own the Zumo & the CB (Midland HT) - although I could use some pointers on mounting the CB besides throwing it into the tankbag - but mounting is easy compared to my confusion at wiring all this up!! confused.gif

 

I don't see the need to have both iPod and Zumo MP3 at the same time, just like I don't see the need to have CB & FRS/GMRS at the same time. But I would like the option depending on what type of trip I'm going to do.

 

So, BMWST Gurus, what should newbie do?

 

Thanks all

Since we don't use CB in the UK I am not going to fully reply to this thread. I don't use speed detection either.

However I would advise a professional installation by a Autocom dealer as there is an awful lot of kit to integrate.

I would recommend being CRYSTAL CLEAR in your own mind when you go to the dealer what the priorities for the inputs should be. For example should the Valentine 1 mute the GPS?, should the Valentine 1 mute an incoming cell-phone call?, should the bike to bike mute the Valentine 1?, should the bike-to-bike mute the GPS etc, etc?

If you're not CLEAR, you will be disappointed.

I have all but items 3 and 5 on a Autocom. My Razr stays in my pocket and talks to the Zumo; the Zumo sees a very inexpensive BT device plugged into the Autocom, and the Autocom thinks it has a phone plugged in, so the phone call part works fine. Zumo is also hardwired to the Autocom for talking GPS instructions and for XM. I also the V1 Audio device plugged in.

 

Right now I have XM on all the time, and it is interrupted by the phone or GPS talking or the V1. I've never had, to my knowledge, all 3 interrupts happen at the same time, so I don't know what gets prececence.

 

The intercom cable is already on the Autocom though I don't use it, and there is also an unused cable for FRS which could be used for CB. So it seems you could do what you want.

 

Bench test before pulling fairings and routing cables....

Per Autocom Web site - here's what the Super Pro AVI can do:

The Super Pro Avi's open system modular design is expand to include:

 

multiple music sources (up to 2)

multiple cellular phones (up to 2)

multiple bike-to-bike transceivers (up to 2)

unlimited audio sources (including GPS and radar detector)

multiple headsets (up to 3)

in-ear (monitor) speakers

Bluetooth phone receivers

 

 

Input Options

 

Aux 1 Socket

Primary Input: CELLULAR PHONE*

Optional Uses: GPS, radar detector, bike-to-bike, and/or recording device

Expandable for Multiple Inputs: Yes

Override: Inputs on Aux 1 will cut audio from any device connected into Aux 2, Aux 3 and Aux 5 (switchable on/off), plus disable VOX transmit on Aux 4 and 5 (switchable on/off). [some cellular phones may require a hands-free headset adapter.]

So your phone doesn't physically plug into the Autocom? I thought one of those connections were necessary to allow full interaction. That would be cool - what's the "very inexpensive BT device plugged into the Autocom"??

Yep, got it all going. Autocom Super Pro as described. J&M handlebar CB (just get the solo version as the Autocom will handle the rider/passenger intercom). You'll have two push-to-talks: one on the J&M, one for the FRS. You'll have to get the J&M wiring from me or someone else on the board as J&M won't help, but it absolutely will work.

A lot of folks use the Motorola HF820. The HF820 has a headphone jack on it that is plugged into the Autocom.

So that's to connect the phone to the Autocom using bluetooth? Is that essentially a cheaper version Of This Device?

 

What are the chances that one of you out there is an anal-retentive engineer (like me) & has already drawn up a wiring diagram of this whole setup?

It is a cheaper version of the #1276 that makes absolutely no claims about being suitable for motorcycle use. Autocom stuff is usually super-rugged and built to last. The #1273 is an Autocom powered version of the #1276.

I bought an HF820-type device to play with - but I would use the Autocom part to instal on the bike.
