Need some help. Bought a J&M Integrator IV as the control for music, bluetooth, CB radio, and Zumo. My problem is that I get a lot of "buzz" from the engine or fuel pump in the bluetooth connection to the telephone when using the IV connected to the bike power (via cigarette plug in). I've changed the power supply from a 30 amp relay controlled circuit to come directly off the battery and still have the noise. I've put a noise filter in line, still have the noise. The noise is not in my headset, but the people receiving the call can not hear over the buzz. Do not have it with the AA battery pack powering the IV. Any ideas? Phone is normally not a requirement, but riding to AK this summer and will be gone for awhile, so wife would like me to call in every so oftern, plus it's handy when looking for hotels, etc

Any ideas?

If you bought it from Sierra Electronics in Ohio. Call them. Nice people. I have been to their shop. I have heard J&M is good to deal with too. I had the same problem with a Jensen radio I hooked up for my wife. I bought a filter type of thing that eliminated the noise. I forget the name of the part, but it was only $10 or so. It hooks on the power line.

I did talk to J&M via email, their recommendation was to run the J&M off of battery power....which would be okay if this was a day trip, but being gone four weeks, might be a lot of batteries...I'll keep trying solutions until I hit on something!

The noise is either coming through the power lead or through the air. Try moving the box around and see if you can eliminate it that way. Fer instance, I can't use the Autocom for the same reason when it is placed in the forward part of the under-seat tray. I keep it in the tankbag instead.

If it's coming via the power lead, there are noise filters available. Check your local car stereo installer.

Have the J&M in the tank bag. Tonight I wired a noise suppressor filter in line, (same one used earlier, but moved it up to the tank bag just in case it was picking up the engine noise). No luck. :headbang:Not giving up yet, going to try a new noise suppressor this weekend. (travel and work gets in the way)

I powered my J&M on the power wire at the tail light. Just one of those simple connectors that you do not have to cut the wire. So far no problems on the three bikes I have done this on. Power on and off with the switch.
Good luck
Mike
