Re: bike to earplugs possible w/o headset?

I am not totally sure about your question, but if you have a 6 pin receptacle for headsets to hook to on the 2008....take a look at the link below for an adapter that goes from 6 pin to 1/8 inch stereo jack.

Thanks, and yes i do have the 6 pin receptacle. Hopefully the 1 piece earplug adapter will allow me to listen to music & gps via earplugs without the use /attachement of a helmet headset minus the external speakers.

I have custom moulded ear plugs that i can either plug into the 2820 or my ipod. If you just want to listen to your GPS/XM doesn't it (550) have a speaker output jack?

Marilyn at www.plug-up.com custom makes earplug speakers and has a box that pulgs into the receptical left of the stingray on an LT. while not BOSE, they are very good quality sound-producers. When riding solo, I frequently do not plug in the helmet, only the earplugs. While at it, I also got earplug blanks that I use for work and other noisy places.

Thanks for all the responses. I used the speaker jack on the left side of the Zumo, I considered a Y plug (Zumo currently wired to Aux), but by simply unplugging that connection i forgo external/stingray/handlebar adjustments.
Thanks, Again.

Those connectors are made by Edsets (a vendor here I think) Give them a shout and make sure youre getting the proper one
