Question ZUMO 550 installation Questions

Hello, this group has been great for help and I expect this time will be no exception. I have a 99K1200TLC with a BC3 Intercom ( J&M made) It has the input zack for a cell phone or MP3 I believe.

What I need advice on is. A mounting option for the Zumo 550 on the LT, Currently I have a GPSIII Color Map, I have the BMW power and audio cord and have the unit mounted on the empty mirror boss.

Second I want to be able to use my bluetooth phone and integrate the Zumo 550 into the BC3 to accomplish that. The Zumo also can play MP3 so that seems like a way to ditch my CD player ( side case) as well.


I appreciate your help.

Rick

Re: ZUMO 550 installation Questions

I mounted my Iway just above the radio using a Ram ball and the mount that came with the unit. When I moved over to the Zumo, I tried it on the mirror base but then decided I liked it better on the radio.

Here is a pic of my Iway:



I have my Palm Centro linked to receive calls on the Zumo and play the audio over the Baehr. I still haven't found a way to broadcast over the intercom. I think I need another cable. Receiving calls works great but I can't talk with them. Still working on that.

Good Luck!
