At the end of my Autocom rope
I have read this forum for hours now and done more than a few searches trying to find a way to adapt my 6 pin BMW com system to my 7 pin autocom headsets. I have gone to the dealer and all they have is the ability to sell me two new BMW headsets for $450, plus two additional helmets. I called Autocom this morning and all they can do for me is to sell me a new Autocom system for $400, plus disconbooberating my bike's com system and splicing into the speaker wires, etc., etc., etc. Everyone with a vested interest in me buying their product tells me that you can't adapt the two systems. Autocom tells me that I can't do it because the quality of their headsets is so high that it is nigh on to blasphemy to marry the two.
So can anyone tell me how to make the appropriate adapters or if it truly is impossible? I would be especially grateful for the pin schematics for each.
I guess I should also tell you that my bike is an '00 LT with the BMW Com System. I don't know if it's a Com 1 or what, but it does have the intercom volume and VOX sensitivity knobs. On the left side is a pushbutton that selects helmet speakers/bike speakers, two audio input jacks, one for the phone and the other for aux music (MP3, iPod, etc.), the CB plug in the center, and finally a toggle switch on the right side for CB/FRS selection.
Any, and all help is greatly appreciated. I am going to ride to Denver in a couple of weeks and would like to take the LT. But if I don't get the intercom system up and running, I'll be forced to take the RT with the operational Autocom setup.
