A New GPSIN-GL18

Postby jerrym » Fri Feb 20, 2015 4:03 pm



I just received a new GPSIN-GL18 Auto Input. I purchased it just to use for my radar detector. I have a Beltronics , Model Pro300. I have installed the GPSIN-GL1800 just as the instructions said. I do not get the sound to come through my helmet. Is there anyone on here that has had any problem? Everything I had read there was no problems receiving input with the unit.

Let's go through a few different things to figure out where the issue is.

First off, make sure that your intercom is actually on and working. With your helmet on, rub or blow on the microphone in the helmet, make sure you can hear that noise coming through the intercom speakers.

Next, make sure that the GPS Input volume is turned up.

Lastly, try plugging the GPS Input into a known good audio source - a phone or MP3 player is a good one, and have it play music.

If you can hear the music, then you know you've got things working correctly, and the issue is with the radar detector.

You can also take the headphones from your phone or MP3 player, and plug them into your radar detector, then listen to them to make sure that it is actually producing sound.

One other thing, we've had a few people with devices that had small plug areas, where the GPS Input audio plug was not seating fully without being firmly pushed into place. Checking it on another device like described above will help identify that as well.

I did not realize that the intercom had to be on. In the past I was using the older J&M unit and it did not. Thanks a lot it works fine now.
