There is a buzzing noise in the background when playing music through the Ipod. The buzzing is only apparent when the bike is moving. There is no buzzing when playing the music with the engine off. Also, there is no buzzing when using the FM or single CD player of the radio. The buzzing is only when accessing the DICE unit. I have been trying to get a response from the tech people at DICE, but am still waiting. Any ideas out there......
I just went through the same thing. I have had my Dice installed for a few years now but it started buzzing a few weeks ago. I narrowed it down to either the Dice itself or the cables going to it. I had no buzzing over the radio or the intercom...only the Ipod. The buzzing would stop at a standstill. It was not RPM related since it did not change with throttle.
I took the entire unit out and used contact cleaner on the connections and then blew them out with air. I reinstalled the wiring and wrapped some light foam around the dice unit in case it was vibration related. I am not sure which of these fixed the problem, but it is back clear like new.
I actually think the culprit was the power lead to the Dice unit at the connector.
I hope this works for you also.
