Hi Linton.
Do you have a comms system?
My 2610 is hooked into the comms (Autocom) and works fine, apart from having to only have it on vol setting 1, otherwise its way too loud. Most of the time I have it muted on the bike, unless on a trip.
Did you screw it completely, or is it just the audio output?
By the way, I bought mine off Ebay from the US, I think at least a couple of local guys have bought the 27xx series from the US and have them working too.
cheers mate

g'day chris yeah I have an auto com but I didnt want the audio in the helmet
someone sugested hooking it up to the front speaker I thought it was a good idea and it worked really well for a few days untill I used the radio that fried the gps internal audio sytem, have thought about buying one from states but then I would have to buy new software may as well buy new unit it would almost cost almost the same, the visuals were working but I sent the unit to nsw for repair wont know if it still works until it comes back, but it was only audio not working, plan just to bolt it to the bike and buy a new one for the car

Ditto...

Hi Axle,
I did exactly that to my Nav I unit. But managed to have the audio circuit fixed as good as new...

Later discovered that I should have placed a resister (or something) between the nav and audio to prevent and current/amp flowing back up into the nav unit...douh!
