Re: Zumo and Autocom question

First, bookmark www.zumoforums.com; suffice to say that site is to Zumo owners what this site is to LT owners. Tons of info.

I also have a Zumo connected to a pre-2006 Autocom. You did not specify how you connected them but I assume that you only have the "audio out" from the Zumo to your Autocom. You have to get the mike signal from your Autocom mike to the Zumo. There are several methods. One is the Zumo-specific adaptor available from Autocom. There are two models depending on whether you have a pre or post-2006 Autocom. The connector fits both jacks (mike in and audio out) on the Zumo cradle.

I connected a Motorola HF820 Bluetooth adaptor (discontinued but available on eBay) to my intercom using the standard Autocom phone cable. The HF820 has a mini-jack that the more recent Motorola units lack.

Re: Zumo and Autocom question

I also use the Autocom pre-2006 with my Zumo 550 however I use it through the the Autocom adaptor (#1300) which the audio in/out plugs into. Works great!

Re: Zumo and Autocom question

To explain my setup, I used the BT adapter and the audio cable. This allows me to make and receive phone calls at a higher priority than other audio. It also adds a fair amount of expense to the system.

The problem you can run into is that if the phone is not on a separate port on the autocom, you need to disable the priority since everything will have the same priority (the zumo will handle the priorities). If you don't disable it (the autocom manual tells you how), when you talk into the mic, it will reduce the volume of the audio, which means the person you're talking to will be 1/2 muted. Maybe not a bad thing all the time.
