    Garmin 595LM to N-Com Bluetooth Kit2C

    Hi guys,

    I have a Garmin 595LM fitted to my 2013 TTSE. There is a spare USB cable in the masses of supplied cabling with the GPS and I was wondering if this plug can be used to charge my N-Com helmet intercom (on the run)?

    Regards
    Alex

    It "might" work, although that USB Port is designed for playing Music files
    stored on a Phone or Media Player, rather than being a Charging Port.

    More importantly I would check the instruction manual for your N-COM Headset
    to see if it supports being used while riding when connected to Power.

    You didn't mention what Model N-COM headset you have,
    but Page 5 of my Nolan N-COM B901L set has this Warning :

    Do not wear the helmet while the battery is recharging.

    ( The Battery is automatically Charged when connected to Power ).

    I don't know WHY there is that warning, and what the implications are,
    or what happens once the Battery is fully charged, and therefore stops charging -
    Is it then acceptable to wear the helmet while connected to power
    as the battery has stopped charging ???  :087:

    It might be worth firing off an email to Nolan Technical Support,
    though I suspect they will say they do not recommend riding
    with Power connected to the Headset.

    Many thanks Coconut,

    I have now located my user manual and it also advises not to wear the helmet when charging the battery. Safety first ... I can still see the GPS and hear instructions on the bike's speakers so a little short-term inconvenience won't be too disappointing.

    Cheers
    Alex

    I too considered charging on-the-go, as I have an issue with the durability of the battery on my N-Com (BT Kit3). It routinely fails toward the end of the day's ride, which is when I most need the instructions to find my accommodation. I replaced the battery, but never get more than 4 to 5 hours use after an overnight charge, even when using Sat-Nav only. And of course it does not recharge in the Top-box during breaks, unless you keep the motor running....

    I bought one of those Powerbanks - normally used for Mobile Phone charge top up,
    which CAN be used during a break to top the N-COM battery up.

    When setting off again, plug the Powerbank in to the Top Box socket
    to charge that back up again ! :028:

    One of the headaches I faced when fitting a Garmin 595 was where to put all that blooming harness !  It's all a tight fit under the nearside mirror housing and of course it has to be kept away from the moving parts of the windscreen ! (As I found out the first time I tried it)  :430:

    ... question for Coconut ... may I ask what model power bank you have. I can find one locally with a DC voltage rating of 5V and output voltage of 5V and output current of 3A. Hopefully this will be fine but .... ???
    As always, any help is most appreciated.

    Thanks
    Alex

    ... question for Coconut ...


    Answer :

    The make is "Anker", the Model is "Powercore 10000 / A1263"

    Input : 5V 2A

    Output : 5V 2.4A

    Capacity : 10000 mAh / 36Wh

    Don't ask me how long it takes to Charge Up, or takes to charge anything -
    I haven't used it for ages !

    Cheers  :821:
