This will allow you to listen to your MP3 player or GPS through the intercom headset. I had it on my GL1500 for a couple weeks.

From the website:
"This is a GPS input harness. This was designed to allow audio commands from the GPS to be heard through the intercom. The voice commands will automatically mute any music that may be playing as if it were a passenger speaking and the plug will fit anything with a 3.5mm audio jack. This has a 78" long GPS lead so it will reach any location as well as a ground loop isolator built in to avoid any electrical or alternator noise. It will feed the audio to the headsets connected to the intercom cords, it will not feed audio to the speakers. Our plug and play harness connects easily under the left fairing pocket and will work on all Goldwing GL1500's."

I have one on my 1500 and it works well. I had to add an output jack to the GPS but that was relatively simple.

Thx Nobbie,
If your looking to play music from a iPhone, mp3 or GPs through your helmet headset, this is quick easy plug and play set up from under the left pocket.

How did you add the output. I have a Garmin that does not have one.

The hardest is figuring out how to open the GPS case without breaking it. Mine was a cheap refurbished Garmin so I didn't have a lot to lose. It was held together with a bunch of snap lock tabs around the perimeter.

Once the unit is open it's just a matter of rewiring the internal speaker to a suitable female jack. Any electronics store has the jacks, Radio Shack etc. I used a female jack with a switch that mutes the internal speaker when the male jack is inserted.

I cemented the jack to the outside of the case with JB Weld.

I'll try to post some pictures in the technical forum.

I also used a hard wired connection to the 12 volt electrical system. That was purchased from a Garmin dealer. You can't just cut the cigarette lighter plug of any GPS cord and run direct. The cigarette plug part has a voltage reducer.

Thanks Wayne for that update. I had wondered about that myself as my older Garmin units did have an audio out jack.

The only current Garmin units that have an audio out are the Zumo pieces. None of the new Nuvi units have it.
My Nuvi 755 has an audio out jack.
