Re: COMMUNICATIONS FOR 2008 K1200LT motorrad navigator 3 help!
If you have an '08 it should have the Voice II intercom installed. It's in the "glove box" over top of the single disk CD slot. It's a knob with LED lights, etc. If you have that.....you will have wiring in the bike for wired headsets. There will be flip cap plugs front and rear with a 6 pin female connector under the caps. J&M as well as BMW sell headsets to be installed in your helmets.
If you have all of the above, you can get things to work.
It's not clear from your post....but if you're trying to play the GPS audio through the bike's speakers, unfortunately, BMW's wiring harness did not make that possible. You can hear the GPS audio through the intercom, as well as your music source, etc.
Note that if you have a generation cell phone with a wired headset plug, there's a jumper wire that you can plug your cell phone into the front of the intercom and connect to the bike's intercom that way. It also requires that your phone allow a setting to go "off hook" automatically after a few rings. Some phones have that feature.
There are manuals for the audio system and the intercom, that hopefully still came with your bike when you bought it. If not, they can be purchased, and would be very useful in getting your controls sorted out.
If you don't have the Voice II intercom, you'll need to install one or have an after market unit wired in.
Hopefully others will reply making something clearer than I did.
Good luck! You have a wonderful bike!
