Identify the connector.

Post by Carsickdick »

Identify the Connector.

This is right next to the Sat Nav supply connector (that’s the one with the white plug in it) is an unused connector with a blanking plug in it.

Bike has just about every option on it so I’m struggling to identify what it’s for.

2011 R1200RT SE.

Any ideas chaps

This photo shows 3 connectors, yet on my 2012 Camhead there are only 2.

I believe that where there are 2 connectors, the second is something to do with audio if a BMW Nav. cradle is fitted like the one below.

If I remember correctly, the second 2 pin plug is for GPS audio output on a bike with radio/speakers.

Great answer, thanks.

Bike is equipped with audio and I removed the BMW Nav cradle to plumb in my Garmin XT one, the original cradle was only connected to one socket though hence the blanking plug in the spare loom connector.

I guess they maybe just never used it?

Thanks again
