Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

Thank you for the quick reply and information. Mark, I meant no disrespect regarding the model year. I was simply referring to info from my dealer and trying to resolve this problem by covering all the bases. I have tried various settings of the fade control and unfortunately they make no difference. I did recheck the info on the thread and the wiring seems to be correct. I have attached photos for your confirmation. The pin locations on the bike socket are the same as in this thread but there are four wires going to it. (socket on bike.jpg). The pinout on the plug does have four pins (plug to intercom.jpg) and the wiring to the plug is shown in "as wired.jpg". If I disconnect the wire labeled "working" there is no audio. I cannot remember if disconnecting the ground kills the audio as well. The label "not working" was wired as the other audio channel. I can find no combination of connections that produce audio from this channel. Please let me know if this all seems correct along with any thoughts or comments. Just a general comment. The dealer has been in business since the 70's, and is a rider and sometime racer. I think the problem is that technology is changing so very quickly and I am told they receive little to no training or timely information from BMW.

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

IT WORKS!!!!!
I am a little embarrassed for not spotting it sooner. The plug will only go into the socket one way but looks the same from the back if you rotate it 180 degrees. The dealer had wired the plug upside down. One channel was connected to ground and the ground to where the channel should be connected. Hence, one channel works but the other does not. Thanks all for your input and apologies for any inconvenience.
Mark, just noticed your location which triggered a pleasant memory. I live about 90 mins north of Toronto now. My earliest motorcycle memory is holding on for dear life on the pillion of my dad's BSA as we left Edwinstowe, Nr Mansfield, Notts heading for my grandfather's house near St. Helens, Lancs. That was mid 50's and I was about seven years old. Guess that's when I got the bug.

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

A big thanks to Ipilot and Dmavrika for finding the plug and sorting out the pins on the plug.
I have spent most the afternoon fitting a bluetooth dongle to this socket and it works fine and I am really surprised at the quality of music that comes through my f4 headset.
I cut the bmw plug off and replaced it with a 3.5 female socket and just plugged the dongle in paired it up and it woks fine.
For those that have the later bmw sat nav I also found the plug that the audio from the sat nav plugs into now I have all the functions working through the radio on the bike.
Its so nice to have all the functions from the radio ipod and satnav being controlled by the bike radio and being able to adjust the volume with the handlebar volume control.This cost in total £18.00 to do and is well worth it if you already have a bluetooth helmet.

+1. On my 2011 RT all three plugs are in the same area as shown in the manual, centered and below the instruments tied to the front frame. No dis-assembly required.

I can confirm that. BMW changed the wiring on the 2011 RTs.

I have a new 2011. I'll look again for the re-wired plugs. Is there a chance that the connector found for the 2010 is the correct part?

The info here is indeed correct. I found the plug under the fork head. There is a black cap on it that has to be removed before the adapter can be plugged into it. I wired a male 3.5mm headphone adapter to it, connected that to my J & M Integratr and Voila, music into my headset. Works well when partially faded with the front speakers.

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

Has anyone made this work with Autocom? I spent most of the afternoon trying various configurations on my new 2011 RT. I'm sure that I have the signal and ground wires identified, but I can't get any sound through Autocom or directly into my headset. I have the Line On and the Fader does effect front speaker volume, but...

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

I have it working with an older Autocom. It works fine. Not sure what you mean by "directly to your headset". I wired the underdash plug to a short cable terminated with a headphone jack secured near the forks. I then plugged a pair of ear buds into the jack and was able to verify the sound from the radio. I ran a stereo cable from the jack directly to the Autocom in the tail section. If you have done something similar to installing the jack and can hear no sound from the radio, the problem is the radio settings (hopefully not the radio itself) or more likely the plug or wiring. Speaking from experience ...... (I don't mean to offend) ... insert the plug into the dash ... Mark the top of the plug .... then check the wiring again relative to the top of the plug. The plug looks the same from the back when turned 180 degrees. I don't have access to my bike right now to check the radio settings.
Hope this helps.
Peter

I had a ground loop issue when I plugged my J&M Integrator into the bike. I am a real novice here, but could this be part of the problem. My issue was a buzz, but when I took the ground off the power side, the buzz went away. The problem is the ground from the line out was double grounding the J&M unit. Interestingly, if I unplug the speaker cable from the comm unit, the unit turns off. Doesn't sound like this is your problem, but I thought I would share it.

Good luck,
Jay

Thanks Jay. I'd love to have a ground loop, I know how to fix that. My issue is lack-o signal. I'm beginning to think I have a harness or radio issue since you guys have tunes on this four pin plug. The pin-out is pretty easy when you look at the female plug on the harness -- and I've confirmed the ground wire with a meter, so the other two are signal.

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

I've found sound! I have no idea what my problem was on Sunday, but I went back to basics and I have solid, two channel sound coming from the four-pole plug and I'm well on the way to finalizing the wiring for my interface with an old Autocom. This is a much better answer than finding an issue in the harness or the BMW radio

MUS-03 -- Should anyone need a MUS-03 Stereo Isolation Cable mentioned in this thread, I have one that I didn't use for this project. Bike Effects wants to hit me for 20% of the $45 purchase price on the return (it wasn't bad enough that they charged me $13.50 for shipping -- ground, no less!). I'd rather help someone who needs the cable -- $35 delivered. Any interest?

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

I also have found sound for the rear speaker plug on my 2010 R1200RT. The plug on the bike is on the right side of the front hoop, over the headlamp. It is on the hoop just below the windscreen power motor on the right side. I had to take the headlamp out to find it on my bike. It was taped to the hoop. It has four wires, all grey with a stripe. The grey w/brown stripe is the ground, grey w/white stripe is the right speaker, grey w/red stripe left speaker, grey w/black stripe is not used. The correct part number for the plug that matches the plug on the bike is BMW # 83 30 0 413 584. It is a 4 wire plug with numbers on the back and on each wire. When this plug is plugged into the bike the ground wire for the left and right is #1, the right speaker is #3, the left speaker is #4, #2 is not used. I was able to hook mine to a 3.5mm extension wire that I ran to the glove box where I hooked it to blue tooth adaptor. Now I have bluetooth music to my helmet when I want. I can connect ear buds or my bluetooth adaptor to the 3.5mm female end. When I have the fader on anything less than 10 it plays music to the front speakers and my helmet. With the bluetooth adaptor there is a slight delay to my helmet, that has been the only negative. There is no delay with earbuds. (my description of right is if your sitting on the bike) Good luck. Steve

"snelso15" -- glad you were able to make it work. The only difference between the 2010 and 2011 appears to be the location of the socket.

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

Great thread! Sorry if I've missed it but does anyone have the part number for the mating connector for the 2 pole line in connector that is normally used for the BMW NAV 4 audio? I want to connect the audio from my Garmin 660 to that input so that I can hear voice prompts through the bike's speakers.

I believe that all I need to do is a make a short cable to adapt the audio jack on the Garmin cable to the 2 pin audio input plug. Has anyone else done this successfully?

Cheers and thanks for everyone's help.

Found earlier in this thread...

"plug 611656" is used for GPS audio.

Hope this helps.

This number is no BMW part number, but a CARTOOL part number. CARTOOL builds all plugs and some electrical devices for BMW. Your dealer should know about this and order the plug with that number.

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

Thanks for all the help., but I'm still searching for a 2 pole pigtail that will allow me to connect the Zumo 660 in the same way that the NAV IV connects to the OEM audio system allowing the GPS audio to come through the bike speakers and interrupt the radio.

Here a some pictures of the connector on the bike that I believe is used for that function.

Thanks again for everyone's help.

Cheers.

If you have a 10 model its taped behind the dash on the right side and involves some plastic removal to get to it.
On the 11 model its taped under the headstock.

I found the plug wire tied to the headstock on my 2010 just as philh24 stated. Now if I can just find the mating connector with pigtail!

....just to interject, its sad that this thread can not be put into some kind of.... DIY category for the new camheads.

I know if I would have not followed it, I would not have tunes in my earbuds today.

.....just what I think

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

I too have been chasing this solution for a little while and without going back and reading every entry I think that I have today established that there definitely is no BMW cable that is designed to plug the ZUMO into the audio system.
The cable that does this is actually hard wired into the Navigator IV cradle and piggy backs the power cable.
Attached is a BMW diagram showing the cable and cradle as part #3.
It appears that the next best option is the home made doovy using the CARTOOLS plug and some solder

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

Has ANYONE[I] succesfully connected a ZUMO 550 into a 2010 RT audio using the 2 pin line in plug that is meant for the Nav 4.
If so what is the trick?
I have both the 2 pin line in and 4 pin line out plugs ready to go, I am in the process of doing the line in first, I have connected the 2 pin plug, connected a 3.5m male jack into the zumo mount and roughly twisted the wires from the 3.5m jack to the 2 wires coming from the 2 pin connector and I am getting nothing, nada, coming through from the GPS to the bikes audio.
Any help will be much appreciated.

Andrew

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

OK Guys, ive made ton of progress today but still cant nail this project down.

I now have audio in from the ZUMO into the bikes audio, first part done.

Second part is the audio out. I have purchased and cut a M/F 3.5m stereo cable and used the male end to go from the ZUMO to the 2 pin audio in on the bike and the female end I have wired into the 4 pin audio out plug on the bike just as has been shown in previous threads.
Wire 1 is ground, wires 3 and 4 are left and right.

When I strip back the cable on the 3.5m plug there is an exposed copper cable and two smaller inner insulated wires. One green, one red. I have assmed on both cables used that the exposed copper is the ground, and that the two smaller insulated strands are left and right..

My problem now is that when i connect my ear buds into the female 3.5m coming from the 4 pin audio out I only get one channel.

When i insert the male plug to the first detent I get sound in both channels, when on the second detent I get sound in only one and then when fully inserted I get sound in the opposite channel than detent 2.

WTF????

I initially thought that the 3.5m cable that I had purchased must have been faulty so I went and bought a fancy one with gold plated ends but it is exactly the same.

The bike is in bits and I dont want to put her back together until I have this nailed.

Anyone??? Please!!!!!!

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

Being awake while most of you guys are sleeping makes it a little lonely but I often end up answering my own posts.

Embarrassingly, after spending at least 5 hours this afternoon attempting to solve this single audio channel problem I have now fixed it.

For some reason I decided to simply touch the exposed speakers in the dash that the Ipod was playing through and noticed that the left speaker wasnt working.

Turns out the BMW Ipod adaptor which has both a USB and a 3.5M plug had a dodgy connection in the 3.5m connector.

I spun it around a couple of times and hey presto, two channel stereo audio!!!!

Thanks for nothing you sleepy bastards

Another RT audio project completed

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

I have successfully connected the Stereo output from the Zumo 660 to the 2010 R1200RT’s audio system. The audio from the Zumo will now interrupt and mute whatever is playing on the RTs audio system and the Zumo audio will be heard.

The one fairly serious limitation of this setup is that the level of the Zumo audio is significantly lower that the audio level of the RTs audio. This is the case both with or without the resistors in place (only one channel was connected to test this to protect the Zumo from short circuiting the output.)

It seems that the setup would benefit from some amplification of the signal coming from the Zumo.

I’m not sure what the optimal value for the resistors is, but it seems to work with the values I selected as well as others that I tried. Use my design at your own discretion. If anyone has any data that would support a different value, please let me know.

The attached pictures show the components required and the assembly process to build the required interconnect.

To summarize:
• Acquire the BMW repair connector as pictured
• Acquire a 3 conductor stereo connector or cable to match the audio output on the Zumo
• Acquire 2 resistors
• Assemble the components following the included schematic and photos. Soldering skills and shrink tube required.
• Install the finished cable between the audio output connector on the Zumo and the audio input on the RT (located attached to the frame near the steering head on my 2010) and secure the cable with wire ties are required.

Feel free to duplicate for yourself and enjoy the results, but use at your own risk.

Cheers.

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

Blaine, as per my PM, I managed to get the GPS in and Audio out complted on the weekend.
I havent had the same problem as you with the low GPS command volume.
The audio system semi mutes the music audio when the GPS commands are recieved.
I went into the ZUMO setup menu and seleceted 100% volume for the GPS and then selected the volume control button on the front of the unit and powered it up to full volume.
While it isnt screaming at me, it is certainly loud enough to hear what Miss Daisy is telling me.

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

Blaine,

I also haven't noticed any problem with the GPS (665) audio out level. I made a connector like you did but with some slight differences. I used 1K resistors (only because that's the info I found on an audio website, it may not make a difference) and it looks like I wired with opposite polarity from yours. I couldn't find any definite info but my assumption was that white/brown would be audio ground (since brown in BMW wiring is ground) and white is connected to the resistors (audio positive).

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

Thanks for the feedback. I'm not sure what the deal is with the audio level. I tried both polarities and could not hear a difference. I also noticed that the Zumo volume is a bit low on Bluetooth as well. I will have to investigate a bit more I guess.

Cheers

Excuse my ignorance here but, what are the resistors for in the audio-in cable?

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

The resistors are designed to prevent short circuiting the 2 channels on the output of the Zumo together preventing damage to the Zumo. In effect this creates a mixer summing the two channels into one mono signal.

Cheers

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

Last night I helped my friend with a new 2011 R1200RT wire up a 3.5mm female TRS receptacle so he could use his Etymotic earbuds with the RT's audio and source controls.Steve's (snelso15) instructions in post #68 on this thread were right on the money. The setup works perfectly. Thanks, Steve!

If so, it is not too strong as to cause an issue. In your case I would give it a try.
By using the Starcom1 or Autocom interface lead you are protecting against a potential pre-amp destroying over-voltage while avoiding a ground loop at the same time.

If you are using Autocom, look at 2273 or 2275. The later has a switch to choose between the speakers and the Autocom.

The 2nd ring on the connector is probably for a microphone input either present or future.

My advice is to use the car stereo interface cable with either system and ignore that jack. My guess is that the jack has to do with future factory expansion like top-case mounted rear speakers, a Bluetooth module, or what not. Just hook into the speaker outputs using a 2273 or 2275, be done, and get out riding.

post #68 by Steve worked like a charm on my 2012 RT. I now have Scarlo G4 with phone and GPS thru Nav IV, and Sirius radio, I pod or whatever thru blue tooth.... by adding cable and blue tooth dongle... And all controlled by the onboard system... works great.

I am bumping this for newbees....this was a big find for me.

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

I've been following this thread, and all I read about is a hard-wired audio system. This bike has BT and it should work flawlessly...for $1300. After spending that kind of money, you shouldn't have to wire-around the BT system to receive quality audio.

I'm very disappointed, and what makes it worse, is I didn't want the audio system in the first place.

It isn't a matter of the system not being able to support quality w/ BT for me. BT is just one part of the sound system and a part I didn't want to use -- charging my helmet to support a long ride just isn't something I'm interested in.

One simple cable and I've got PERFECT hardwired sound in my helmet, so I don't need extra electronic toys.

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

Hi All - I've been following this post with interest as I have a new 2012 R1200RT with the BMW Factory radio system and too would like to use my 3.5 mm ear buds without having to go Blue Tooth -Demtris do you know if the plug you show would be on the steering head on a 2012RT (as some BMW folks claim) I have a small 2 connector plug and then a larger 4 connector exactly like the one you show - maybe it's the audio plug we're speaking of for the mysterious rear speakers- in case you hadn't noticed I'm trying avoid a Tupperware party for this plug if I have to correct one on the steering head I can easily reach it by hand with no disassemble -- comments welcome some of the BMW documents seem to indicate they "may" have moved this plug (the 4 connector) here in expectation of some type of hook-up or at least the other side of the connector? Maybe not? if I do pull the fairing and find the "plug" by the tach I will post as such --

Re: Four-Pole line out cable from R1200RT (2010) Radio ?

Note to self - read forum first - then post -- I found that this is in fact the four pole connector under the steering head (and I have one) also that MAX BMW (Thanks Drew) has the correct part for the "male" side of the plug (BMW Part #83300413584) I will soon be enjoying my custom fitted ear plug/phones again!!! no more crappy radio at 60 mph (or more!)

Thanks to all that posted the answer to the question that BMW never seemed to want to address!

Works like a champ! follow the instruction in post #68 and your good to go my "beats" buds never sounded better - the "plug"is located on the steering head fro the 2010-2012 RT's
the posted part number 83300413584 is correct and available at max BMW (www.maxbmw.com) remember to set the setting on the "tone" function and fader --

See ya down the road - I'll be the one rocking side to side with the beat!

I was able to hook mine to a 3.5mm extension wire that I ran to the glove box where I hooked it to blue tooth adaptor. Now I have bluetooth music to my helmet when I want. I can connect ear buds or my bluetooth adaptor to the 3.5mm female end. When I have the fader on anything less than 10 it plays music to the front speakers and my helmet. With the bluetooth adaptor there is a slight delay to my helmet, that has been the only negative. There is no delay with earbuds. (my description of right is if your sitting on the bike) Good luck. Steve

Thanks for the good info. Can you tell me the best place to find the 3.5 mm extension wire to use with your instructions? I have the BMW 584 plug and I thought is was going to come with the 3.5 mm end. Thanks.
