Different way to install Autocom on LT

I decided that since the bike was apart for it's extreem makeover that I would take a look at different places to mount the Autocom. I had a BMW Voice II unit (actually 3 of them) and like the way it was mounted in the oddments box ontop of the stero so I decided to try to install it there. It fit perfect and while I was in there I did what Gredude (Todd) did and installed a 3.5 min jack there also just incase I want to use it somtime. I have my 2820 connected, stero with Dice and i-Pod, FRS and phone cords comming up from under the stingray. Here is what it looked like before mounting it back on the bike. I guess you could call this thinking in the box!

Excellent installation. How did you mount the Autocomm to the CD player. Do you have any problems inserting or removing CD's? Any problems with mounting the unit?

I am having an Autocomm unit installed on my 07 LT this week so I am very interested in how your installation works.

P.S. do you have any more pictures of the installation that I can print out to show the dealer?

I like that install!

Educate me - 3.5mm jack - is it ited in to the autocomm?

Also, how did you tap in to the onboard stereo? I have held off getting an AutoComm because I didn't want to to be cutting/soldering and AutoComm was developing a plug-n-play solution, but I finally heard from tham that they have abandoned that...

Plenty of pictures on my smugmug site here, (http://www.dmat.smugmug.com/gallery/1281014#60177136)
of all the things I did in the "extreem makeover". The 3.5 plug goes into the rear of the radio, it is a kit and it was $39.00 from BMW I can get you the part number if you like. Here is a picture of the rear connection that you have to solder the wires to for the stero/cd player lead, if you know how to solder it's easy, you could use the front speaker wires also but this was easy so thats the way I went with it.

When you remove the radio fron the stingray there is a bracket that the curved piece that sits above the radio is attached to the case just remove the screws and the top comes out and then cut some of the gasket that surrounds the radio to fit the autocom and then use two sided tape or velcrow to attach the com unit. the wires run through a hole in the side of the compartment and the wires run high enough to not interfear with the cd player. If you going to hook up a 2820 or a Zumo you need to use cable 1314 not the one that is recommended in the book a 1308 or 1307 it will hum like crazy, don't ask me how I know this but have to go change that now.

Geez Doug! It looks like you did a LOT of work on the bike -- and it looks fantastic!

Lots of good ideas buried in there - thanks for taking time to share the pictures with us....

Ya thats why I called it the "extreem makeover", been getting things for the bike for the past couple of months and wanted to do it at all one time.
