I'm picking up my RT this weekend. It has the full radio package, but not the CB/Intercom package.
I'm stripping my AutoCom off current bike. It has the ability of coordinating cellphone, CB,MP3 and GPS inputs.
I'd like to use this system on the RT. I don't know if it's possible.
In an ideal world, I'd like to install some type of switch that would change the output of the RT radio from the speakers into a 3.5 mm jack. I can then plug this jack into the MP3 input of my AutoCom and run the music into my helmet speakers. As I said, the AutoCom will then manage the other inputs for cell GPS and CB.
Has anyone done this ? Am I explaining this learl so it's understandable ?
If no one knows how to do this, does anyone know someone at BRP that I can contact to figure out how to do this ?
I can't be the only one with an AutoCom..............
Thanks in advance for your help.

Hmmmm, I know the one I looked at had a place to connect an mp3 input. but do not know about a way to output the radio to an mp3 jack. I am wondering if a place like this may have something you can adapt:

The only real issue here is matching the output of the radio to the input of the AutoCom unit so that it isn't over-driven. Typically the radio output would go directly to the speakers at several Watts of power... that would need to be fed through a resister network to reduce the signal for the input to the AutoCom unit which would probably be in the neighborhood of 1 volt. To do this correctly we would need to know the input specifications of the AutoCom unit and the actual power output of the Spyder radio along with the impedance of the speakers. We could use this to calculate the values in a simple signal divider network made up of resisters of appropriate power disapation and values to reduce the signal to managable levels at the AutoCom input. The short answer is yes, this should work to route everything through the AutoCom unit.

3.5mm output

Hi - I asked my dealer if there was a way to get the RT's audio to my Sena SMH10 bluetooth by 3.5mm plug. He said that there is a plug harness that you get when installing the XM and CB system and it should be available to purchase separately. I don't know if this would work for you, but I may give it a try once my blood clots go away and I can move around again. I'll update and post if I do and would appreciate the same if anyone tries this or knows anything about it.

I have the RT with Audio and Convenience, Garmin 660, + a lot of other stuff.

BTW - I see the Sena advertised on this page. It is a great unit and I have been using it for over a year now. I currently use the 3.5mm input for my IPod which has over 7,000 music files in CD quality ie. lossless format. It absolutely rocks my head !!
