Voice II cord for the Motorola HF820

Is the cord that is used to interface the Motorola HF820 bluetooth speaker phone to the Voice II a cord with a 2.5mm stereo male plug on each end? Any body have a part number for the BMW cord that works?

Thanks,

The part number on my invoice is 99990000203. That cable fits the HF8020 as well as most Moto phones. I think it's around $20 from BMW. you can probably go to Radio Shack or some other electronic parts shop and pick up the connectors and a piece of cable and roll your own for under $5. Either way, I'm using the set up that you describe with my VOICE II and it works great.

Lynn,

Do you have the HF820 or 8020 bluetoothed to your cell phone or the GPS (NavIII or Zumo)? Reason I am asking as I have it plugged into the VOICE II and bluetoothed to the GPS and the GPS (NAV III) bluetoothed to the cell phone. But it seems that the HF820 will not stay "connected" to the GPS. it drops the connection.

Any thoughts?

There was some discussion on this on the Zumo website. It seems that some phones timeout their connection because of bandwidth issues. The relevant statement is:

Thank you for contacting Garmin International! I'm happy to help you
with this. This is a known issue with some phones. These phones do not
have enough bandwidth to be in a multiple connection environment and
unfortunately nothing can be done about it on the Zumo at this time.

If you have any additional comments or questions, please do not hesitate
to contact us via email or at the number listed below.=20

I have my HF820 linked directly to my Motorola Cell phone. The 820 is plugged into the VOICE II with the BMW phone cord. That combination works great. I only tried once to link the 820 to my Garmin 8020 and had some problems. Don't know exactly what happened but I never went back to try and sort it out.

I'm trying to get my arms around this Bluetooth, HF820, intercom thing. There are several HF820 configurations on Ebay; not sure which I need. Also, do I need to get the BMW cord to plug into the HF820 and intercom? Is there anything else I need? If you could explain exactly what I need to get and how to connect it, I would be most appreciative. I just want to make sure I cover all the bases. I appreciate your help.

Ray here is the link http://direct.motorola.com/ens/usa/b...r-the-car.html The HF820 has been replaced by the T305 but I do not know if the T305 has the jack to take the phone cord. The cord used is the BMW standard one for connecting a cell phone from its speaker jack to the bikes com system. In the absence of knowing if the T305 has the jack I would go with the HF 820 they are available at places like Best Buy and Radio Shack.

I bought an HF820 on eBay. It is connected to my Autocom with a standard phone jack cord. I paired my Zumo with the phone and with the HF820. I understood that the more recent Motorola Bluetooth speakers no longer have a jack. I didn't confirm it but since I paid only about $22 for the HF820 I figure I got a deal.

It seems to work pretty well. Sometimes there is a delay between ending a call and seeing it disconnect on the Zumo screen. Sometimes when that happens the phone will "drop" from the Zumo but it reconnects itself within a minute or so.

The only other issue I have had is that the Zumo does not always detect the HF820, even when I follow the recommended order of powering up the HF first. If that happens I turn the Zumo off, then back on and it usually works fine from there.
