Zumo 590LM voice to J&M Comm System

Hello all. I just bought a Zumo 590LM from Garmin. I'm replacing my trusty 276C. I have a 2003 K12LT with the J&M Comm System. I had no problem connecting the "voice out" line from my old 276C to the bike. The 276C cable was "hot", "ground", "data out", and "data in". "Hot" and "ground" powered the gps, and "data out" was connected to the connector to the GPS input to the J&M system that was under the left hand tupperware. "Data in" was not used.
On the new 590LM, there is a cable marked "stereo line out". That is going to be comprised of three wires to the 3.5mm stereo plug. I don't have the unit yet, so I don't know if it is male or female.
Here's the question. Which wire do I use to connect to the J&M input connection? Or, do I use another input to the J&M system? While I'm waiting for someone to hopefully help me, I'm going to call J&M for their take. Maybe this is a lot easier than I'm making it.

Thanks

Re: Zumo 590LM voice to J&M Comm System

The 590LM comes with a wiring harness that has several inputs and outputs to
the unit as far as interface with J&M cannot provide any info as I am an
AutoCom user . . .

This might help describe the wiring harness you get with the unit:

On another note the only two issues I have with 590 is the battery life and
screen brightness but that would be another thread!!

Re: Zumo 590LM voice to J&M Comm System

Hi Dan, Thanks for the reply. I do have a drawing I downloaded from Gamin that shows the connections coming out of the 590 mount. I'm pretty sure I have to use the 3.5mm "audio out", line. The problem is that there will be 3 wires inside that connection. The audio input to the J & M comm system only has 1 wire available. 2 if you count the ground. I need to know which of the 3 wires from the Garmin harness do I connect to the bike's input.
Or, is there another way. I think I can plug into the "Auxiliary Audio Input" inside the oddments box, but then I lose the radio.
