Hello to all, I would like some assistance in understanding the wiring connections between the V1 and the remote display, here is my plan. As a motorcycle rider, my current bike is a BMW F800ST which is a sportbike design and has no usable area under the windscreen and fairing to locate my V1 out of the weather. As much as I would like to mount the V1 where the laser capabilities would be active, I will house it in the top of my water-tight tank bag where the radar reception is still quite good. I want to mount the remote display atop the instrument panel under the windscreen which should be enough to sheild it from the elements along with some silicone sealer at the unit's seams. I also am using an audio intergrator from J&M called the Integrator IV which allows me to monitor my Zumo GPS (with mp3 player), CB radio and V1. An adapter with the RJ11 plug on the V1 end from J&M provides power to the V1 and sends the warning beep through the Intergrator IV and on to my helmit speakers after interupting any other audio inputs.
What I need help on is this: I would like to use a standard telephone splitter in line with the Intergrator's power/data cable, running one cable on to the V1 and the other to the remote. From tracing the connections through the Valentine's hardwire adapter with a diode tester, I find the pin out assignments of the RJ11 jacks to be a mirror image in respect to the main unit and accessory side.
First, am I correct in this assumption? If I hook the remote up wrong will I blow it up? :shock:
As a solution can I -
A) either fashion an RJ11 cable that flips the pins from one end to the other (mount the plug upside down with respect to the other end) or
B) accomplish the same thing by re-arranging the pin connections on one of the splitter's output sides to mimic the Valentine hardwire adapter's arrangment. I think I can pry the splitter open without total destruction.
Suggestions and enlightenment is welcomed!
BTW, Happy New Year to all.
