Title: connecting GPS audio to TT
Post by: atrophy 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.

Yep, put tape on it.  It all works!

Again, thanks to all.

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

It is possible to access the Power and Audio connections
by just removing the left mirror pod,
but is usually easier if you completely remove
the left Fairing panel.

There's a Write up here on : HOW TO : Remove the Fairing ......... (https://www.triumph-trophy.com/index.php/topic,832.0.html)

When connecting up the Power, use an In-Line fuse
with enough cable so you can route tHe Fuse Holder
into the back of the left hand mirror pod,
making it easy to access if needed,
by just folding the mirror glass out of the pod  :028:

Thanks Coconut,

My dealer fitted the power harness to the mount but didn't have the necessary cable for the audio and didn't tell me before the event that a "special" one was required. Its a bit of a ball ache to take it back to them again (which they've said they will do) so was just thinking of doing it myself - get to know the bike a bit better too.

i'll take a look I think but looks quite an involved process to get the fairing off!!!

cheers for the info

Hi Stumpyone,

The audio cable is NOT a "special" cable at all !

The Garmin Zumo 660 cradle wiring plugs straight onto the Triumph Connector,
which is a standard 3.5mm stereo Jack Plug ( Male ), so whatever device you are using,
just needs to have a 3.5mm socket ( Female ) on the end to connect them together.

Removing the Fairing does look a bit daunting at first, but is really no more involved
than removing a load of screws in the right order !

Take a methodical approach, follow the instructions in the "HOW TO: Remove the Fairing ...... (https://www.triumph-trophy.com/index.php/topic,832.63.html) article,
and lay or tape the screws that you remove onto a sheet of card,
so you can write or draw on the card, to describe where they came from  :169:

At the bottom of that article there's also an A4 document that you can download and print out
which shows how many screws there are, their sizes, and where they all fit !  :028:

Stumpyone,
No need to remove front fairing for this! Search "little different take on finding audio plug", right now it's on page 6 of this category.
Really quite easy to get to. Pull out left mirror, look up behind it and take out a couple of those large head bolts that hold most of the bodywork together. That will release the left turn signal, after disconnecting bulb. Then look from front, in where turn signal came out, remove another bolt or two, and that piece of body work will gently pull away, starting from front. And right behind that piece is where the connector is hiding.
Good Luck!

Good stuff shyyoung1,

Found that easy enough...the tricky piece is running the cable.... How did you do that?

If you are going to run the audio cable up through the Triumph fitted bracket,
then the bracket has to be removed as the cable passes through inside it.

This involves even more dismantling of the cockpit,
in addition to the Fairing removal recommended earlier.

There's another write up by member davybull here :
Fitting Triumph Sat Nav mount & Zumo 660 (https://www.triumph-trophy.com/index.php/topic,1858.35.html)

thanks coconut... you are a mine of info.. thanks.

struggling getting the clock cluster off behind the screen!!!!  just posted a request for a link for the service manual!!

My bike is various bits atm... fitting all kinds of cables for power, charging and intercom!!!

do you know what the name is for the plug that fits into the engine mounted cigar lighter socket? Its smaller than standard in the UK as is the one behind the pillion seat. I need to get one of them so I can use the engine mounted socket for my batter conditioner.

cheers

Stumpyone

You won't find a link anywhere to a Service Manual for the new Trophy -
they can be purchased from authorised Triumph Dealer's.

If you do find a link to a Service Manual, it wil be an illegal copy,
scanned and uploaded, and wouldn't be permitted here !

If you follow the instructions already provided in davybull's "HOW TO" guide,
then you should be able to remove the panels - if they wontl move then you've probably missed some screws !
The top edge does seem to click together and has to be teased apart to release it.

Cheers  :821:

The cigar lighter socket by the riders left knee is a DIN type socket, sometimes referred to as "BMW" !

You may realise that this socket is permanently live, so can be used to connect a trickle charger such as Optimate.

You can buy dual purpose plugs that fit either the DIN socket, or the larger "Standard" Cigar lighter socket,
as shown below ( remove the red end for DIN plug ),
and there is also a cable accessory from Triumph that connects to the Optimate if that is the charger you are using.

Cheers  :821:

There's also anothe rThread running on connecting th GPS Audio,
so - pinching a recent comment from there - once you get it connected up,
don't forget to enable NAV Audio from the Audio Set up menu !
