I'm sure this is mentioned somewhere on the site, so I apologize in advance for the question: Does anyone know where to get a phone cord for the BMW Comm system? It needs the regular phone plug end (for the <a style='text-decoration: none; border-bottom: 3px double;' href="http://www.serverlogic3.com/lm/rtl3.asp?si=31&k=cell%20phone" onmouseover="window.status='cell phone'; return true;" onmouseout="window.status=''; return true;">cell phone</a>) and a smaller end for the Comm system. I've had the BMW Comm system installed for about a year now and I have never used the phone option- which is ironic since that's why I got the system in the first place!

Help!

To Whom it may concern

Most BMW dealers have them or can order it in.
I dont have the part number off hand though.
They also come in 2 different lengths. Depending
on what type of cell phone you use , you might need
an adaptor.

BTW... please fill in your user profile so we dont have to
address you as... To whom it may concern

Cheers

Cell phone patch cord

Actually, the cord is a 2.5 mm connector on both ends. While searching the internet to locate someone who carried such a cord and then looking at Radio Shack, I concluded that I might as well bite the bullet and order one from my dealer (he didn't have them in stock.) So I ordered it. Since then, I're read all the posts about other intercomm systems and concluded I was asking the wrong questions to Google and might have located one from one of these other vendors (IntaRide for one). Anyway, you could build your own by getting the parts at Radio Shack, but I took the easy way out since I don't really have a work bench to do quality electronics cable building.

Precise cord for cell phone

I think the cord is the regular cel phone cord on one end and a smaller plug on the other end that plugs into the VOICE I.

I just use a standard stereo cable with 1/8" male jacks plugged into a 1/8" to 3/32" adapter on each end. Got it all at Radio Shack and it works great. I'd prefer a stereo cable with 3/32" male jacks on each end but they don't carry them.

Travis,
I have the package that my cord came in. The numbers on the envelope are, and I'll give you all of them.

Cell Phone adapter
10223
D224346
B08 01 3
99 99 0 000 203
F204837

Is this not confusing...

It's interesting how mine works. I hear a quick three beeps, then I say hello and I start talking to whoever is calling. I tried talking with my open face helmet on but couldn't hear that well, but with my full face I can talk and hear quite clearly and have done this at 60 mph and more. It also automatically stops the radio or CD from playing. Once you get used to it, it's very cool. Get someone to call you a few times so you can get used to it.

Cheers, Bill

I have a comm system on my 2001 LT. It's a fabulous addition to the bike. With the phone plugged in and set to auto answer, the system will automatically mute the radio or cd when the phone rings. All you do is speak and hear.

The wire that connects the phone to the comm system is readily available at Chicago BMW (best prices on accessories and parts) or from Cyclegadgets.com.

What phone manufacture are you using? I have a 2002 K1200LTE with the BC2 system. The caller hears a humming noise. I am using a Sony Ericsson phone.

Any ideas what could be causing the noise?

Verizon Razr Phone Adapter to BMW Comm System

Travis:

I'm a new owner here in NYC---was wondering if you ever got your issue resolved concerning the phone connection. I have a Verizon Razr phone and it needs 2.5mm plug-to-plug or single the mini-USB cord on one end and the 2.55 micro plug on the other. Can't seem to find them anywhere!

Also, it's good to see an LT owner from the area I grew up in! Ride safe!

You will need to move your phone farther from the comm system. I was ok if mine was about 8" away but got noise if it was next to the system.

I've had both sizes on back order for two weeks, and just spoke the dealer...no delivery date anticipated. In fact he said that BMW has these on backorder from their subcontractor. It could be another week, it could be months. Looks like it's time for a trip to Radio Shack.

Where to get universal cord???

I have been pulling my hair out over the cell phone cord for weeks now. I attempted to make my own cord using connectors from Radio Shack. I'm actually decent with soldering, but the connectors are so small that I can't get a good joint without melting the plastic. Two bad cables later, I gave up on that approach.

I'm seeing the BMW part numbers here and there, but I can't figure out which one is the "universal" cord that has a male 3/32" (2.5mm) stereo plug at each end. Don't want to order one, wait for months and get the wrong part.

I ordered what I thought was the right cable from cyclegadgets.com, only to receive a cable with a 3/32 on one end and 1/8 on the other. Called them up to find out they don't even have a cable with 3/32 on both ends.

So I just picked up the 1/8-3/32 adapter from Radio Shack, figuring I would at last be done. NOT!!! The adapter makes the rigid part of the cable so long, it won't fit in the oddments box with my cell phone, regardless of whether I plug the adapter end into the intercom or into the phone.

I can't believe that there is not some cheap source of a cable online somewhere. All my usual sources have tons of computer cables and home theater cables, but no 3/32" stereo male on both ends.

Anyone have any ideas??

I just purchased a new LT and am having the same problem. The only cable that the dealer has is a three foot cable. Radio Shack carries a 6 foot cable, but, as other have noted it only comes with the larger plugs. The other problem with using the system they way they want you to is that the phone must be in the auto answer mode. My dealer carries a bracket that fits in the mirror mounting holes. It's perfect for a phone but you need a 6 foot cord. Looks like it's either using adapters or making the cable.

Hi Guys,

So.. I got the mini usb to 2.5 socket adaptor for my motorola razr V3, also got the mini to mini lead. I plugged it in to my voice comm2 system, it's setup for phone on. Phone call gets recognized as incoming, music cuts out, then nothing. Anyone have any ideas? BTW phone is setup for autoanswer, and the J&M headset is working fine with everything else, GPS, radio, aux.

Cheers,

Tony

Stereo Vs Mono Jacks

Tony, check to see if you are maybe mixing mono and stereo connectors with the adapter you have. I can't recall for sure, but believe that you need only mono jacks for the phone to comm sys cable. Also be aware of polarity between both ends of the cable.

HTH,

John

Attached is a picture of the BMW phone cord that works in the Voice II. It is about 18 inches long and is nice because it has the proper right angle connectors on each end. I got it from Chicago BMW. I think there is a shorter version available too that is about 6 inches long if I recall correctly.
