2009 1200LT Navigator IV question
First post here, so please be gentle. I bought a 2009 K1200LT last year, along with the Navigator IV GPS. The dealer told me it would integrate fine with the VOICE intercom, and since the GPS had bluetooth, it could link to my phone and put the call to my headset (that's hardwired to connect to the bike) just like my Autocom system did on my 1200GT. The GPS works ok, but only as a GPS with voice prompts. It tries to connect to my phone via bluetooth, but the connection dies because it can't find a headset. I've tried connecting a bluetooth adapter to the AUX port, but have had poor results. Plus, it's battery operated, so not a long-distance option anyway. I told the dealer this, and he said he would figure it out and get back to me. (16 months now, still waiting for that call.). Since the GPS will also play MP3, I tried installing a micro-SD card and attempted to play through the headset. Same result as the phone.
Seems to me that since the GPS can physically connect to a headset through an external port (but the port is obscured when on the bike), there should be an internal connection to bring audio to the headset through the bike's intercom. Audio prompts from the GPS come through, so why can't music?
Has anyone else experienced this, and is there a fix?
