Is it so?

Re: Mp3 player interface

As I see it , Yes it connects to the radio.
My concern is if you get a bad unit, do you have to send it back to China?

Insent an email with that question. Hopefully I will hear back soon,,, as soon as they get an interpreter to read my email.

I am no sure if yje Y harness really exists.

And it does not fit '05 - up.

Price of that is pretty modest though. So if screwed, not big time Guess people have good and bad experiences from orders from China. I have done several orders from there and so far haven't been disappointed... These days I do not see bigger reason for concern than ordering from whatever country (outside EU ) More it depends of the security of the website, ability to use Paypal etc...

Yes but needs also connecting to the back of radio (Y-cable). So comes in between the harness and radio based on the picture. So should work also without CD-changer / harness if the radio has got the interface for such.

Re: Mp3 player interface

I spent a lot of time trying to be happy with the stereo system on this bike. Added an input jack so I could play my iPod through the stereo and it worked great at less than highway speeds. Finally found a solution that has made me much happier.

I got a pair of Sena SMH10 head sets. The primary reason was so the wife and I could talk on trips. Figured I would only use it when riding two up. Found out that the when using the direct wire input to the headset with my iPod I had decent sound at all speeds and much more control. Depending on the device you can also blue tooth multiple sources to the unit (iPhone, GPS) at the same time. Wife and I can now each listen to our own iPod and still just tap the headset to talk.

Now when I come up to an intersection I'm not trying to lower the volume on the bike stereo to keep from blasting everyone. Of course you have to be careful if you like to sing along with the music since only you can hear it now.

My advice, save your money trying to make the stereo better and move up to a headset. It has more function and will work better in all conditions.

I don't want to duplicate your effort, and I already use a Scala Rider Q2 Pro for communication. My iphone bluetooths to it. It needs better speakers so I have hooked up a 3.5 jack for earbuds. I will have to get used to them, cause I've never liked them.

I will prolly keep the Radio/ cassette player but remove the CD player to gain more space.

Re: Mp3 player interface

There are a few wired DICE units out there (going by the wayside, because Bluetooth adapters are now the technology).

Here is availability on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Dice-i-BMW-T-S...glink121728-20

Just take out the 6-CD Changer. The Dice unit is plug and play with the CD Changers wiring. Plays as CD #1 - and can be controlled by audio controls. Works with an iPod.

Re: Mp3 player interface

Watch out the DICE units drain the bikes battery if you don't ride it every day. They have a significant draw that will flatten the bikes battery if not ridden for a good ride every few days.

They are designed for cars that are driven daily and have 10X larger batteries on them.

The Sena has OK speakers. Not great but for me, much better than trying to hear the stereo over highway wind noise through a full face helmet. One especially nice feature the Sena does have is the option to use your own earbuds if you choose instead of the provided speakers (optional mount). I already tossed the multidisk player and definitely like the extra space in the right side bag.

Thumbs up Re: Mp3 player interface

I have a 2001 LT and a cassette player under the front lid so I got an cheap player at Radio Shack and plugged my iPhone into it. The device looks like a audio tape cassette with a wire attached. You pop it into the player like an audio cassette (welcome to the 1980's!) and jack your iPod into it using a mini-to-mini plug and you are good to go. If you want it piped to both the speaker system AND you earbuds, simply buy a "Y" splitter.

Re: Mp3 player interface

check out a thread I started last year.

http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/showthread.php?t=69402

The yatour was a no go...

Maybe mine was defective, but for sure it would NOT go back into the stingray radio house without some modifications.

I eventually went the wired route with a J&M integratr and J&M headset in my Schuberth.

Used this setup for the last 2 year 40K plus miles and worked great.

I play MP3 off the Garmin or iPhone and have an input for my Valentine One so I get the beeps in my year with Smokey the Bear is around.

Maybe you can get a YATOUR to work, but like I said be warned that you will have some trouble getting all the new cables back into the stingray housing...

Oh yes, I remember these adapters from the late 90's. But they work.

Another question that would really answer the need. Does the BMW set have a preamp output lead that may have connected to an Autocom set?

This could be connected to a cheap ($49) bluetooth amp. That would provide sound from the original system to a modern headset.
