connecting GPS audio to TT
« on: August 10, 2014, 08:47:30 pm »
I have a zumo 665  wired directly to the battery with an earphone jack that I plug ear buds into.  I would like to direct the audio to the TT Nav .  I removed the left mirror and I see the factory power connector but not a 3.5 jack to plug into.  Do I need to get a cable from the dealer?  The cables I see on line are just for power.

The plug you are looking for should be in the same bundle, usually held to the front sub frame with a velcro strap. It is a 3.5mm male stereo jack (in line straight type), exactly the same as a normal headphone / earbud jack for your phone. It's not so easy to spot as the metal connection end is covered by a long piece of black heat shrink type protection. I believe the 665 uses the same loom as the 660 which has the matching 3.5mm female lead.

Hi there, what you have tucked away down on the left hand side is a MALE jack plug which is intended to take the female connector that is the audio out of the cable harness from the Garmin cradle. I believe when not in use it has a protective cap on it so not immediately obvious that it is a connection point.

When you plug it in, try putting some tape around it to stop the connection coming apart. When the dealer fitted mine the audio did not work. Turned out when routing the cabling he must have pulled the connection apart.

Don't forget to activate the "Nav" audio in the bike audio setup menu!
