Hi rider6661,


Unclear if you are asking a question here or just making a comment ?

From the Audio Handbook :
The on-board electronics will determine if the battery is sufficiently charged
to power the audio system; if the battery voltage drops too low the audio system will be turned off
and the instruments will display LOW VOLTAGE in the lower display area.

.... and also - from the Owner's Handbook :

If BATTERY LOW is visible and the heated seats and heated grips are switched on,
they will be automatically switched off, along with the accessory sockets and audio system
(if fitted), to allow the charging system to charge the battery.

There are several topics already running concerning Low Voltage issues,
most of which are summarised in the "HOW TO : Check the most common faults & issues" ( Page 1 ) topic,
under the alphabetically listed Title of BATTERY

Battery draining problems while the Ignition is OFF, have, in some cases been due to a faulty Audio module.

Not in my case. I have seen the message several times during startup over the months and my battery is fine.

I really didn't think anything of seeing such a message when starting. Battery voltage is expected to drop a bit while starting. IMO, Triumph should have simply disabled the message when the starter pressed in so nobody would even see it during the start. But it's NBD, IMO.

When I start mine that message comes on but it's not a problem. Then all goes back to normal and the audio switches on. Never had a problem with it. Might be as stated, just needs a bit more juice to start the bike.

With the exception of one bad day, I have the same experience.

Same.
When starting, the message appears, then all is fine.
It's been that way since day 1 and now have 10k mi.
At least it's consistent!

Same thing with me........the message comes on during starting and then fades out after the bike starts.  Went for a short ride tonight and no problem.  Checked the state of charge after arriving back home and it shows
100% and 13 volts. So now my only problem is the constant no device message.  It has been a problem since day 1 with my Trophy.   Dealer says Triumph knows about the problem but has not offered a solution yet.
