looking for a cheap way to get the audio from my 2720 into my intercom. I have a bikemp3 V1, that apparently the Aux input isnt really there, the V3s so, but apparently are only active without the SD/USB being plugged in. That's what we listen to most of the time, so I really dont want to use the factory Aux input. Any suggestions? Oh yeah, the 2720 had a speaker/power plug combo. I ripped it apart, hardwired the 12V side and I have two more wires that I can attach whatever to it for the speaker output from the 2720. Thanks in advance...

Yes, give them a call and they will walk you through what you need. I use a 2720 and an iPod connected through the AUX connector. They sold me the two way unit and that allows the iPod to play and when the 2720 wants to talk to you it overrides the iPod.

I also use their connector for the 2720 since it plugs in directly to the power connection and to the Kennedy unit (same as the aux hitachi type connector).

It is not cheap but it is plug and play and works perfectly.

Whew!! at last maybe I can help!1
I just got a Garmin 765t. An electronic puzzle I will not solve but. I have an 2001, I took my car adapter to the left glove box receptor. then and audio cable to the aux in in the same glove box. It works like a charm My unit stays charged and I can hear instructions. My GPS has an MP3 player so I have 16gb of tunes or pictures or audio books. You may guess from my exuberance I know diddly about all this just had cables laid around and it worked. Now getting real adventurous I have really good $250 in ear channel headset, so I have sent off for an adapter that allows me to use them instead of the helmet speakers.It plugs into the helmet and allows the lower cord and the headset to hook up The company I found was Pick Up in Florida. BTW they will be at Wing Ding.
Remember this comes from a know nothing but your only cost is an audio extension cable
Hope this this was of help

Born 1941 stole my dads bike,1953,the pain from the crash was not as bad as from my dad inflicted. First bike a 1939 BSA, since then many. I have bought a 2001 wing.All new wing riders should have to do jet fighter training first.Took me 30min to start bike the key was in wrong position. Getting ready for my fantasy 4 corner run this year.

If you want to superimpose the GPS audio onto the mic intercom line, why not use a 8 ohm to 1000 ohm audio matching transformer from the GPS to the mic leads... The only issue with doing it that way is that you will only hear the GPS in your headsets... The transformers are about 3 bucks at Radio Shack

Therein lies the problem. My GPS doesnt have an mp3 player. I bought one of the Bikemp3 players to plug into the CD changer port. It works well. If I use the Aux input, I cannot listen to the mp3 player, because its a different source (like trying to listen to AM and FM at the same time).

Now that's what I'm talkin about. I'll have to check the impedance on the speaker, but I am assuming its 8ohms. I dont have a problem with having it only in the headset, as most of the time that I need it, we are 2-up and have the intercom on.

Bill,

I do a similar thing only on my 1500... I route my Nuvi660 audio into the aux input I installed on the radio per the many articles on that to receive GPS instructions as well as MP3 tunes...

Then, I routed my boom mic audio into the external mic input of my Nuvi 660 via a 1000 ohm isolation transformer... I used a 1000 ohm coupling transformer to keep the impedance high and not load the mic circuit...

Because my Nuvi is equipped with Bluetooth, this enables me to not only listen to my MP3 tunes while riding, but if a call comes in to my cell phone when riding, I have complete hands free cell phone service using the headset boom mic... I have done this with a buddies 1800 as well, so I know this method will work... Because I use the bike aux radio input, I can route both MP3 and cell audio to either the speakers or headsets... The downside of course is with the aux radio mod, I won't hear either the GPS or cell if I am listening to the radio, but I usually use the MP3 section and GSP most of the time anyway...

I think using the audio matching transformer and routing into your mic lead will do what you want it too... I would use the volume control of the GPS to match normal headset volume...

Use a good shielded cable for the mic lead and try to keep the leads isolated from the noisier charging circuits on the bike... I use RG-174U, a sub-miniature 50 ohm coax cable... It's about 1/8" in diamter and reasonably flexible... It's a little hard to find at local stores, but you do a google search on it and buy it online - that's what I usually do...

Good luck with the project ...

Les
