Re: Turning on your GPS without stopping!

JerryOfAZ How are you doing on that ? I would be interested in hearing how it is going. My first nav mod was very similar but used 556 timer and relays. You will find that it will be very reliable unless you operate other things, volume control, suspension, trunk or saddle bags open, etc. will defea...

Re: Dunlop Elite 4

Here is my take from my experience. I had the full Traxxion installed in 2007 on my then 2006 gl1800 with 14000 miles on it. At that time they did not have the triple tree. Have had it serviced by Traxxion every 20000 and 50000 miles as recommended by Traxxion. At 200000 miles with worm but still le...

Re: TaoTronics Bluetooth Transmitter

There are threads on this board telling you how to do just that. I have wired my bluetooth transmitter into the bikes intercom. I can now hear the bikes audio system in my smh10 headset. The easiest way to do this is get one of the transmitters above and a 5pin to 3.5mm adapter for the gl1800 interc...

Re: Goldwing Navigation Problem

Check the map date and size. Latest authorized mapest for a 2008 is 2014.4. Latest fw is 4.9. If it is an unauthorized mapset and it is larger than about 2050mb it will act that way.

Also in the original post it is stated that just cutting the speed sense and adding a switch will not work on 2006 - 2008 but if you can come up wi...

Do you have a meter that will monitor current ? If so disconnect the + battery cable and connect the meter between the cable and the + battery post. Do not turn the ignition on or allow the meter lead connected to the + cable to short to ground or you will probably damage the meter. Now check the cu...

Re: LCD SCREEN

OldBrit if you have the extended warranty the dealer should replace it. I had mine replaced at 145,000 miles when small dots appeared.
My dealers justification to Honda was that is were the odometer is.

Re: USB outlet

If you unplug the MP3 player from the power does the noise go away ? If so you need to isolate the usb power from the bike power or possibly use a noise filter. If it is still there when you are not connected to the bike power than it is the cruise control noise. Not a lot you can do about that one....

Re: Wing Nav update

I used a Sandisk CF card . I believe it is the Extreme but not sure at the moment. If you do a search of this site I posted the one I was using. I think FW 4.9 operates a little faster than 4.6 and may have a couple of other bug fixes. But if you install FW 4.9 and you don't like it you can go back ...
