I am asking all of the electronic gurus for some help in my idea to add a cell phone connection into the Intercom system for my GL1200.

Here is my current setup. I have an Audiovox 100 FM modulator that is connected inline with my antenna from the Radio. The beauty of the Audiovox is that it blocks any incoming signal from the antenna and feeds its signal into the antenna so the radio provides a great sound just like you were listening to a very strong FM station.

My cell phone, which also plays mp3 music, is my aux music source for those ride into remote areas. Anyway the need thing about my cell is that if I get an incoming call, it stops the music, and automatically goes into phone mode. This combined with a headset mic/earphone gives me hands free communications.

I would like to wire the microphone/speakers from my helmet so that when the cell phone goes into phone mode, I could flip a switch and now the helmet mic provides input to the cell phone and not the intercom. There are some systems out there that do a similar job for the GL1500/GL1800 but not the GL1200.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

J&M used to sell phone interfaces.

I looked at J&M and they are setup to only support GL1500/GL1800 bikes. Does anybody know if this would work for a GL1200?

I also am looking for a less expensive solution, but if I can find a solution will......

Yeah, GL12s are now considered obsolete by the aftermarket companies.

try Kennedy. If they don's have it, they can probably make it.

If they don't have what you want, try emailing them:

The J&M CFRG-390C is a universal interface and will work on anything that has 12V supply. It is just shown on a 1500 for display purposes. I had one on my 87 ASP.

I'll 2nd nsjoe recommendation on Kennedy. i haven't used their stuff but looking over their web site, they probably have the cleanest setup for what you want.

I tired wiring in a hand held CB to my intercom on my 84 aspy. I never could get the mic input to the radio setup correctly. GSMclean had did some playing with this and he has suggestions on matching or filtering transformers. Unless you are real handy with electronics and have access to electronic parts it's not worth the time to try an make a "less expensive" setup. If you want less expensive, go with and earbud set made for your phone and attache the mic piece to your existing boom or the inside chin bar on your helmet. :)
