Greetings

I am sure there is alot of knowledge out there to help a new guy like me. I have a autocom to install so if anyone has any links or advise for mounting and powering the unit on my r1200RT I would really e appreciative. I was planning on an underseat mount but where can I pick up power without tampering with the electrical monitoring system.

 

Also, I have been reading up and think to save a little money I should be happy with the Tomtom Rider 2. Can this be plugged in direct to comm or don you have to use thee bluetooth feature.

 

Thanks Everyone and Happy Holidays

I mounted my Autocom in the glove box (radio box) and wired it to the accessory socket up front. No relay was needed--works great! And this seemed much less complex than running all those wires under the tank to the rear of the bike.

Same here,

for Autocom I soldered a fly lead on to the accessory socket wires and fitted a locking waterproof plug, so you can still remove it quickly if needed.

 

The GPS, I used BMtroubleyou's very own GPS power lead rider V2 you'll need the bluetooth interface, if you can wait Autocom are bringing out a twin interface. Then you can use TT and answer the phone.

I've got my autocom in the tail, and the only wire I run under the tank is audio from the zumo. I'm curious about your install, and how you run the cables to the riders? My rider cable exits under the front left side of the seat, and my pillion cable exits under the left rear of her seat near the powerlet outlet. How would I route those from the radio box?

Well, first I only ride solo, wife has her own RT. My headset cable runs from the autocom in the glovebox under the silver plastic tankbag mounting plate and exits down where it meets the seat. I'm running audio from my Garmin 478 and Escort radar detector to the Autocom. And a cable from the push-to-talk switch on the handlebar to the autocom. And another cable from the autocom to the kenwood radio in the tank bag. So there's quite a few cables running from the handlebar area to the autocom, and some more from the autocom to the tank bag and rider. Mounting the Autocom in the glovebox was simply a no-brainer for my setup. As far as how you could route the pillion headset cable from the glovebox, you could start out as I did with the rider headset cable but bring it out under the front of the rider seat and route it around the battery area to the tail area. Or remove the top tupperware and route under there. Shouldn't be a problem.
