Garmin Zumo 665LM for Bike & RV

Post by seabeechief » Mon Jul 27, 2015 2:47 pm

OK, guys, here we go again. I'm considering the purchase of a Garmin 665LM for use on my GL1800 AND my RV. I want to listen to the XM radio with Bose headphones for me bride does not share my love for talk radio.

Here is what I know: the GPS and XM radio will play on the bike with volume control through the speakers or the helmet head set.

Here is what I do not know: can I control the volume of the radio and GPS with the Garmin? The 665LM says it has "headphone jack/audio line out". So I THINK I can listen to the radio with either a corded headphone or with the BlueTooth setup, and control the volume with the Garmin by plugging the headphones into the "audio line out" port. I do not, repeat do not want to run the XM or GPS through RV radio system.

Can I have what I want?

You can listen through the jack you listed. Volume would be controlled by the GPS volume control. The output could be used for a speaker if you wanted also.
