aux port / samsung note 2

Postby USMC5953 » Sun May 26, 2013 7:57 pm



I did the aux mod on my 1995 se and it works great with my ipod touch but when I use my samsung note 2, I push play on the note and it goes to stop. The phone is sencing some kind of voltage or something.

Also for some reason the mod only works with a blank tape. I tried the empty tape cartridge and tried the rubber band between the wheels and only a complete blank tape it will work.

I just thought, my samsung note 2 will interface with my stero in my car and garage, just wont work with the aux mod on the gl1500 radio.

Thanks
Andrew

Guessing that no one has has this issue or knows why this will not work with the phone I have. My phone will work with my car and radio in my garage with the same 3.5mm stero plug but will not work with the AUX port on the bike. My I-touch works well so I know I have it wired correctly.

I suppose it's possible that the bike preamp is feeding back some sort of voltage or signal that the phone is unable to deal with correctly.

I would try buying a small ground loop isolator, plug it into your AUX port, and plug your phone into the isolator. That will isolate the phone from any bias that may be coming from the bike's preamp. If that fixes the problem, then you know that's what it was.
