Stingray Plug

Hi all,

While installing a new GPS in place of the Nav III, I ran into this plug again that I have yet to know what it's for. It was on the bike when I got it and I suspect that it is for the saddlebag CD player. The first picture shows it with the nylon cover and the second one shows it without the cover. Any thoughts as to what it's for? Thanks!

Re: Stingray Plug

Possibly something pre-wired for a Voice II com system? It looks like the in helmet com system that was wired up under my pillion seat when I got my '05 (not factory in my case.)

Re: Stingray Plug

I agree, this is probably for the Comm II system

Re: Stingray Plug

Most likely wired for Comm as it is NOT for the CD in the side case.

Re: Stingray Plug

Thanks, guys! I hadn't thought it could be related to the wired communication system as there is are external plugs on the stingray and the topcase for helmet plug ins. I pulled up my copy of the BMW Communication System V.O.I.C.E. II manual, and on page 19 it states: "...BMW Motored communications system also offers an interface for connecting a CB radio.... For this purpose you must remove the protective cap from the corresponding socket." So it must be this plug for the CB that was never installed on my bike.

Ah - that makes sense. I didn't think about a CB.
