'03 Radio questions
My used '03 LT-C did not come with the supplemental owner's manual for the radio. I have the unit with the single CD, along with the BMW ComSys. After some searching, I was able to find the thread on bmwlt.net that has scans of the pages out of the manual for the '99 radio with cassette. That helped me figure out how to set the preset radio stations and some other nifty stuff.
However, I'm still unclear on a couple of things - when I press the CD (lower left) button to cycle through the menu options, I get INTERCOM and AUX choices. As I understand it, this means I'll be able to buy the BMW aux input cable and listen to my iPod thru the fairing speakers. However, I don't get the purpose of the INTERCOM function. Is this a feature that will allow your SO to yell at the cage who just cut you off while you focus on evasive maneuvers?
Also, I have the BMW StreetPilot-style GPS unit, and I can hear the audio from that in my right helmet speaker thru the ComSys. Exactly where is the audio connection made? Both the 1/8" and 3/32" jacks on the front of the ComSys panel are empty. Is there another ComSystem input?
Finally, there are a couple more cables coming into the oddments box from the left side, for the CB radio. One cable ends in a little box-shaped connector for the radio. The other two cables are a 1/8" plug and a 3/32" plug. Anyone know what these two are for?
