for you to be able to apprecaite the fix, we need to back in time a few weeks, actually a few months ago.
A few months ago after i got the gps installed i parked the bike in the shed with the gps running and turned the engine off, but didnt turn the key to the off position and left the gps running.
went back to the bike a few days later to go for a ride, the battery was flat.
blamed myself and removed the fuse to the gps under the passenger seat so it would never happen again.only put the fuse in when i need the gps.
christmas day i took my brother for a ride, got 60 kays out of town and we were dieying of thirst. i pulled up beside the road, shutdown the bike and opened one of the panniers and we had a drink of some cold water i put in the panniers before we left home.
when we left this spot, i coulld not use the mute button nor change volume, byt my brother could from the passenger seat change volume and mute.
so last night i pulled the bike to pieces and we started checking wiring for the audio system and chased cables from one end fo the bike to the other to figure out how it all worked.
This morning in the shed..
After a while of us scratching our heads and talking Allan asked me how the gps worked cos he thought it might have something to do with it. i told him i needed to flick the switch on the bike from audio to gps and when i do that the gps works and the gps will talk to you and tell you whats going on.
Allan said where is the switch.
I pointed to the top of the stingray unit.
It was set to GPS.
turn the bike on and the radio goes the switch is set to gps and no mute button works and no volume works.
flick the switch to audio, and try again, all is good.
mmmm.. Allan and i look at each other and crack up laughing.
I must have flicked the switch when we pulled up 60 k out of town by accident, and if the fuse was installed for the gps i would see the gps lcd screen running and thats why the mute,volume button wasnt working for the radio cos it was running for the gps!!!
Oh well.... at least it never cost me anything to get it fixxed it guess.
