Zumo To Autovox

I recently purchased a 2005 LT and am trying to get the communications system set up. I got an Autocom 300 Pro-Due and intend to buy a Zumo 550. I have questions about how the Zumo Bluetooth is set up to work through the Autocom. Anybody have that setup??

Many thanks!

Re: Zumo To Autovox

I wouldn't call it perfect but it does work. It requires two adaptors, one of which is Autocomms Bluetooth adaptor. If someone doesn't post the needed part numbers I'll look it up for you. I believe I originally found the info on Autocomms web site. There is an instruction sheet that covers it all. There is also a lot of good info posted on the Zumo owners user group site.
Okay, part numbers: #1314 Audio adaptor for music/GPS and either #1273 or #1276 Bluetooth adaptor depending on which Autocomm unit you have. One adaptor requires the newer unit with power out, the other requires a connection to the battery. See Autocomms website under 'Adaptors' for instructions and hook up choices.

Re: Zumo To Autovox

I would suggest a Autocom bluetooth adapter #1273 and a stereo isolation cord part #1314, Here is how it works......

1. pair the zumo with the autocom dongle (make sure the zumo is in the mode so that the audio from the cell goes only to bluetooth when the phone is on)
8 NOTE THE DONGLE GOES INTO AUX 1 AND IS POWERED BY THAT PORT

2. pair your cell phone with the zumo

3. run the lead 1314 to the primary input of the Superpro avi (2 or 3)

How this will function: By configuring the system this way it will function like this.

A: When playing the mp3 on the zumo, navigating, or using the xm radio on the zumo all functions will come out of the normal hard wired port on the zumo into your autocom, when the phone rings the zumo will mute all of these functions and show you the phone call information on the screen.
If you chose to answer the call the autocom will mute all other inputs you may have (radar, zumo audio, etc) but the cell call will come through the bluetooth dongle and you conversation will function normally.

Call me if you have other questions.........I am Autocom Dealer and would be glad to help. Kieth 918-446-2245 emial [email protected]

Thumbs up Re: Zumo To Autocom

P.S. there are other ways to do this but this method leaves the functions of the autocom alone without any modifications to the autocom, the other ways mean a dealer has to go in and modify some circuits which I can do but prefer not to since one would lose priotization functions that you may need at a future date......................

Re: Zumo To Autovox

Keith is describing the same procedure I pointed to. As he says, this is the current and cleanest approach. The dealer modifcation methods involve things like disabling the mute function. The Autocomm Blue tooth adaptor (1273 or 1276) does this for you. With standard cabling the big problem is every time you talk the standard muting function cuts the phone volume. Follow the instructions on Autocomms site and you'll have an okay system. You might have to try the bluetooth connection process a couple of times, it's a little tricky, but does work. Note that because both the Zumo and Autocomm unit are bluetooth you're actually connecting to two devices plus the phone.
