Does anyone know for sure what Gps units will integrate with the stereo system? We know the 660, 2820 and 2720 Garmin. Has anyone tried or know of any other units?They are just so expensive $$$ I was thinking of using any blue tooth and putting it in the trunk connected to the powerlet and buying the scala G4 headsets for me and my wife and listen to the gps that way but no visual might be a bummer MMMMM

We are mounting our "cheapy" Garmin, just below our key. We have an adhesive disk that the window suction cup mounts to... The Scala rider is AWESOME... perfect communication and should work fine with the garmin, it is bluetooth capable.

I use the adhesive disk in my car for my nuvi 660, be real careful to have some type of tether on your gps or you will see it bouncing down the road one day. When its hot out, even if the windows have been open, i find it hanging from its chord sometimes. The disk is good but dont think it wont come un-sucked from time to time.

Be careful with the disk and suction cup. You have a lot more vibration on a bike and if that suction cup comes loose you may lose your Garmin. If I were you and you wanted to do this, I would make sureyou had some sort oftethering device to the Garmin just in case it ever breaks free.

I'd drop the $25 and get the Vision mount and ram ball. It's a clean look and one thing that Victory hasn't made stupidly expensive. Plus ram offers a lot mount options for various devices.

I have looked at the electrical on the 2008 and 2009 bikes. The audio output from the GPS harness is mono to the radio. I do not have the electrical for the 2010 radio.
The Garmin 2820 did not output the XM audio through this connection. You had to plug in to the external 3.5mm jack for this audio.
Apparently the Zumo 665 will output the stereo audio through Bluetooth or through the motorcycle harness in stereo. I have asked Garmin several questions on this, and that is what they are telling me.
There is a handy little 3.5mm to bluetooth adapter available from http://www.imcmoto.com/called the D1000. It works while being charged.
http://imcmoto.com/products/bluetooth-adapters/wirevo-d1000.html
I choose to use the Victory mount for my bike and their harness. But there are other ways to go. http://www.ram-mounts.com/.. Cables from http://www.powerlet.com/, and you can buy the victory connector and make your own harness. Let me know if you need that info.
I am trying to find a way to take the output of the 2008 and 2009 radios and connect it to the D1000 bluetooth device. This way I can send the GPS and the Victory radio and all sources up to my Interphone F4 headset. This means I do not need my iPod to bluetooth in I can leave it on the Victory radio with all its functions coming up bluetooth.
If I could do this all over I would purchase the Garmin Zumo 665. Connect my cell and XM through it to my headset. Have my ipod, AM/FM radio, and weather channels come off the bike through the D1000.
If anyone has the Vision 2010 Service Manual and electrical in a PDF that I can get from you I would appreciate having a look at this.
Cheers..

The plot thickens. cardo says the 2820 is not compatible with the scala and garmins says it is compaitible??? come on guys someone is wrong here. dean says he is hooked up to the 2820 with scala so I go with dean. attached might be some other useful info of other models.
Dear John Blakeslee,
Thank you for contacting Garmin International. Currently the only Garmin Devices that support pairing with a Bluetooth headset are the nuvi 765, 775 , 785, the StreetPilot 2820, the zumo 550 and the zumo 660. When a headset is paired with these devices the listener will be able to hear phone calls, navigation prompts, and mp3 music.
All other Garmin Bluetooth enabled devices are only capable of pairing with a Bluetooth cell phone.

With Best Regards,
Henry L

I have the Scala G4 and a Garmin 2820 and Zumo 665. Both have connected without issue to each other. Cardo is either wrong or thinking of connecting in Stereo. The 2820 is a mono bluetooth while the new zumo is stereo. That could have been what they were talking about. But I can assure you, I have connected them easily and without modification.

WAIT ONE: I just realized I misspoke. I am not sure about the 2820 and the Scala. I ran my 2820 through the line out to the Vision aux input and got the bluetooth from there. I haven't actually paired them directly!! Fuzzy Brain Syndrome. I will attempt to pair them today before I replace the 2820 with the new Zumo 665 and let you know how it goes. I owe you that attempt after possibly and accidentally misleading you.

I have the basic 1 person Scala 99 bucks and i only got it for the phone, however it does sinc with my 2820. I havent tried it with the phone and the gps. Of course i wouldnt want my phone conversation to be interrupted with "You have arrived at the topless bar on left" anyway.

I am still confused about the mount and harness for the 2820 as they sell them (Today) are they seperate or as a kit? They show the mount for $89 and harness for $149

Okay. I am pulling my console off and setting up my zumo 665 - but first, I did connect to the old 2820 with the scala g4 and it worked just fine. Both mp3 music, XM and nav guidance all came through. Only in mono of course, but it does work.

My console is now in pieces and I am hard wiring the zumo harness power/ground directly into the old wires versus buying the $150 harness. I mounted the new, slightly taller aluminum mount pretty easily, but you have to separate the console skin from the black plastic frame with the radio. I also learned that the heated seat switch is simply a 3 piece modular plug set. Mine had been reversed in that "high" was the low switch position and low was the upper position. It took about 10 seconds to switch the 2 connectors and now it is wired correctly. Now I just have to put it all together again and hope I don't have left over screws. I hate when that happens.

graywings do you think the new mount would fit with the 2820?
Yes, it does. The only difference is the height, because the 665 is taller than the 2820. The mount holes are all the same, both for the garmin bracket and the underside mounting holes for the mount on the console. I held the 2820 in place and it matched fine, just a little higher off the console.
