Hello to all. New owner and new member.
My name is Brian Shupe and I work for Bob's BMW in Maryland.
Just bought a project bike and the radio is flashing NO RADIO.
After researching as much as possible I have torn down the bike, extracted the radio, opened it up and found corrosion on the main board. I am sure it is shot.
So before I go down Nick Elliot's road for aftermarket install, does anyone think the main board is salvageable? or know a source for one? I found Becker's website with repairs at $400 but think I would rather upgrade. Also does anyone need the CD transport section of my radio?
General questions to Nick Elliot and/or any who have use the UNICO DUAL PLUS as their solution for maintaining handlebar controls.....
I think I found the document that lists what each manufacturer's radios are compatible and what functions the unit translates/assigns, but most seem to be euro radio models. The unit I am looking to use is the Pioneer MVH-X370BT. Anyone use this model? Any reason to think the default codes the UNICO DUAL PLUS uses wouldn't apply to this unit? I have to wait till monday to call pioneer.
also since the UNICO can take 10 buttons, I thought of using this
pretty expensive but definitely nice looking.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a bank of 5 momentary switches? possibly mounting on bar covers or on dash under left grip. opposite side of gas.
I don't need CD. AM/FM would be nice but really only need amp for ipod.
Anyone go that route and still keep handlebar controls?
Thanks in advance
