Re: Low output from new speakers

Stupid question. Did you check your mute button? I changed out to Polks and have'nt had any issues.

Re: CB PTT ERROR

Do you have a factory CB or an aftermarket CB? Had a BikeMP3 rig that lasted about 6 mos. before I got the dreaded "CB ERROR". replaced with OEM unit, no problems.

Re: sena freewire & 10s

Yes. Pair your free wire to phone 1, not second phone on the headset

Re: sena freewire & 10s

I was having a problem with my 30K headset where the unit would'nt multi-task like they said. Ended up going with a new 20S EVO. Problem solved.

Re: Best GPS for non-Nav wings

Had a Zumo 595 but switched to the new XT. New screen is bright and clear, unlike the older matte type screen. Note it is bluetooth only, no audio out cables to hook into onboard speakers, which is fine for me since I've added a Freewire and went with Sena 20s headsets.

Re: GL1800 speaker replacement

IMHO I think the bass is clearer with less distortion at volume. I did end up disconnecting the tweeters as they did little anyway, plus made taking the cover off more of a pain in the a**.

LCD Display

I know this topic has come up before. Just don’t know if my year Gl was part of it. Did my last ride of the year and noticed the dreaded “dead pixel” screen on my display. Does anyone have the model of a replacement lcd screen for my 2013 2nd Gen Navi/comforter ride? 78150F6B-CC30-4892-A337-EB430F52...

Re: Gold wing cell phone interface

Update: I have just obtained a Sena freewire and two 30s headsets. Mainly because I THOUGHT my j&m Bluetooth went south. Wife now rides her Spyder and can’t communicate with me. At least I can still use my cb AND talk to her. Another winter project. 🥶

I will agree the Cobras were quite and handled great. Although I too got the dreaded belt separation. I would get them again if they could fix that.
