Ive got a Starcom Intercom, with an Ipod connected to the audio in.
Music quality........... pretty darn good.
Intercom quality....... now that's another story, another time, crap.. however.
I connected a relay, triggered from the tailight (ignition on) to supply power direct from battery (fused) for Ipod and Starcom.
I dismembered a standard Ipod cigarette lighter adapter thingo, so that i soldered power cable directly to the PCB and then to the relay. I did this for the space saving from installing a cigar socket and the standard ipod adapter.
Anyways, as soon as i connect the Ipod charger lead, I get a lot of electrical noise through the headsets, disconnect....noise gone.
Because Ive trashed the ipod adapter, Im unable to see if this is a "standard feature".
Can someone who has an ipod and std cigar adaptor, plug it in a see if you get electrical noise through your earbuds.
Maybe I need some sort of inline filter.??? (enter electronic guru)..
The intention of all of this is so I dont have to remove my ipod everynight to recharge. It lives under the seat and soon I'll be riding for 42 days straight (YEEHA)
The relay. is triggered from the tailight so there is no way I can get a flat battery on the bike, as the system is only active with the ignition on.
Keep that smiling thing happening, thanks in advance
