The regular aux mod to our GL-1500 for audio in from i-pods etc would benefit from doing away with the switch. I am thinking of wiring the relay for normally closed aux. in and activate the relay if a tape is inserted. Voltage could be supplied when the tape deck motor is started. Anyone have a diagram of this circuit before i strip my deck down to locate it.
Thanks.

The switch does seem to be overkill, rather than working more into the solution, why not use a switched jack (where inserting the connector makes the connection for your relay to 'switch' the aux-mod).

PS2, DIN, and similar connectors offer a few extra pins so that the conenction being "made" can act as your 'switch' as well.

Even a simple SCR could be used to hold-in your relay once activated (until the key is turned off...)

Sadly, I don't have the schematics at hand here, but there oughta just be a simple mechanical switch there for "tape=inserted", that may be perturbed for your purpose. I'll scour some images from a recent install and see if I can't offer more insight

Thank you for your suggestions, I am trying not to drill into the audio console body to minimize water problems. The older type 1/4 jacks could be fitted with a weather boot but the mini types are hard to weatherize tho i will look into it. A circuit diagram would be nice tho.

Hey guys... don't want to hijack the thread but there are lots and lots of iPOD and MP3 goodies and accessories intended for marine applications here... might be worth a look!
