I have a 2003 LT with the dealer-installed autocomm system. I bought the BMW/J&M headsets so I can listen to the radio and GPS while riding. I don't use the mic because my usual passenger doesn't want to have a headset in her helmet.
I need your advice to help me solve these autocomm-related problems.
1. I hear "spark plug" noise through the headsets. It's the same electric interference that happend when radios were first installed in cars back in the pliestocene era. How can this noise be filtered out?
2. Sometimes and for no apparent reason, the radio will not play through the headset. It will play through the speakers, but not the headset. All the cords, plugs, connections are okay. Turning the radio off then back on does not make a difference. The next time I use it it may work just fine, or may not. Has anyone else had this problem, and how was it solved?
3. Turning on the Navigator III will kill the radio coming through the headsets, sometimes for 20 minutes or longer. Does anyone have a solution?
