You have to do one of two things:

1) Buy and install the NIM harness= Navigation Interface Module
2) plug your GPS to the Aux on the radio, but then the voice will only be heard if you have the radio on Aux mode.

Option (1) cuts in on the music or whatever you're listening to and then you get the voice commands, when it's done talking the tunes or whatever comes back on.

FM

Edit to add: part number for the NIM is: 76000024A

I've got the NIM set up, works really well. Vol. could be louder at highway speeds but through the headset it works perfecto!

Yes, and you also have to have the Harley Roadtech version of the Garmin Zumo 660 or 665. Won't work with any other GPS.

If your GPS has a 1/8" headphone output, just use a patch cord and plug into the AUX input of your stereo. Then select AUX with your right handlebar selector.

Yes I apologize, in my haste I forgot to mention the Nim only works with the HD GPS units, sorry.

The blue tooth option provides a best of all worlds solution - if you're using a comm system. I just got the SENA set and it will play tunes, provides the GPS audio, allow you to make/receive phone calls, and talk to your riding buddies - all at the same time! wow - talk about distracted riding. Talk has priority and will interrupt music or GPS audio, and GPS will interrupt tunes when the lady informs you that she's "recalculating."

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?
