    Installed Starcom1 Digital
    « on: 2012-11-12 18:43:11 »
    I installed my Starcom1 Digital on the bike over the weekend and I am happy, I can listen to audio books streamed off my phone.


    I will be splicing into the bikes audio system next weekend and will post pictures from that.

      I have now integrated my Starcom1 into the audio system by splicing the wires into the output of the audio system with help from Steiner.


      It works perfectly and sounds amazing. I have all the functions available through the thumb wheel and I can now also stream music/audio books from my phone as well as have a conversation with my wife while listening to music.

      Are you sure you picked the right 4 cables for the audio out of the Alphine ?
      And where did you connect the ground ?
      Is there more than one ground and +12v connections ?

      There should be only one of each - and be shure the ground - really is ground  ;)
      Not all ground is good ground  :D

      Use one cable to battery ground - and be sure - no electric parts from what you have mounted is electrically touching ground !

        The ground is good and as long as the audio is on I have no hum. Its only when I turn the audio off that I get the Hum and its a constant hum not engine noise.


        I would really like to fix this, as for the connections I did not have a Blue+Red but did have a solid Blue which was the most likely wire. Its sounds perfect even at low volumes when its on and playing.


        Left speaker   + = Yellow+Brown,  - = Yellow+Redbut rather a solid blueRight speaker + = Blue+Brown,     - = Blue

          I’m in the process of installing an Autocom Logic unit and am about to graft into the bike’s speaker cables. Like Chris, I don’t have a Brown/Blue wire so I’d like to confirm the correct wire for the + side of the RH speaker is solid Blue. I.e.,
          LH Speaker + = Yellow/Brown, - = Yellow/Red
          RH Speaker + = solid Blue, - = Blue/Red
          Is that correct?
          Incidentally, the Autocom instruction manual for the stereo cable doesn’t mention the K1600GT but does have a diagram for the R1200RT. That shows wiring colours as I have written above but shows them in reverse, i.e., LH speaker is solid Blue and Blue/Red, RH speaker is Yellow/Brown and Yellow/Red.
          So, my second question is to confirm the correct orientation of the wiring between LH and RH.
          Thanks and best wishes to those celebrating at this time of year.

            If you go to BMW K1600 Audio System Section. Then to Aotocom Kit L-1 Reply 7 on July 7 there is an answer to your query from Autocom.  The wiring colours are the same on the GTL as they are on the 1200RT but its a lot easier to wire in from the audio unit end

              CJNY;
              yepp, thats the way to do it. I've got no hum whatsoever, but had to work a littel to get the dongle BT to connect.
              Working great :)

                This is just an update. I had mentioned that I had a hum in the system when it was powered off, I found I had a bad splitter cable, which unfortunately has been part of the system for three bikes now. I have always had a hiss from this system but it was low most of the time and not that annoying.


                After replacing the bad splitter this system is PERFECT, I cant tell you how good this system is and the audio quality is amazing.
