sweet, this is helpful.

i'll be using it mostly off-road so that's nice to know.

i appreciate the responses.

i spoke with Garmin today and it sounds like i'll still need to load a Baja map as their MX doesn't have a lot of detail.

you can get real time weather on that on though.... that's pretty bitchen'!

I grew up in the land of no weather, so when REAL weather comes along, it might be nice to know about it ahead of time.

Most of this can be found in old threads over in Equipment - do a search that includes ISOLATION and TRANSFORMER. The XMA3 folks as well as the Mixit guys sell them, this is the mono version from Mixit Products which gives you the idea of the actual size.

Newbie here from the FJRFORUM.com site. A little research has been done on the topic, but I'm still unclear on some specifics.

Background:
I am using a pre-2006 Autocom Super Pro AVI, a Garmin Nuvi780 GPS, and an LG Voyager cell phone. I am able to listen to MP3 and directions from the Nuvi with no noise, but once I wire the mic into the Nuvi I get the infamous groundloop noise.

So, I am looking for a way to isolate the groundloop when the Nuvi mic is wired to the Autocom. But the Autocom isolation wire is still a bit pricey, especially when I can make one myself.

Can anyone provide directions and or pics on how to wire a Radio Shack, Crutchfield or similar isolator to the mic wire of an un-isolated Autocom mic wire? Specifically, which wires of the isolator to splice into which wires of the Autocom mic wire.

Thanks

There isn't much good info out there, only some not so good stuff about being limited to mono audio with the 1300 cable and using bluetooth adapters. Topgear's website also doesn't show a zumo cable and also references 2006 and later for one of their isolation cables.

Go to your autocom dealer or call Topgear. Starcom makes a special cable that works like a champ, I can only assume that Autocom wanted to keep up with them and makes one as well, hopefully for your older intercom.

If there are no good options, I can attest to the Starcom working like a champ with stereo tunes and telephone audio via two cables (special mic cable and stereo out) with the phone connected to the GPS via bluetooth.

Since the Autocom is working, I'll stick with it...for now.

I've put a call into Kieth, the Autocom dealer out of OK (USA) and will probably just go the Autocom route.

Thanks for your assistance.
