Bluetooth Reciever for my Voyager
Hey all, I just recently made an addition to my 2013 Voyager and I thought I would share it.
I have an android phone and I have spotify. I wanted to be able to play tunes from it when I'm riding. After considering many different options (going Iphone wasn't one of them) I decided to go with a Bluetooth receiver. I bought from Ebay an MTX Audio MUDBTRC Bluetooth Receiver.
It is made for boats and motorcycles, so they say it is waterproof, which so far so good. It comes with brackets etc to mount it surface, flush or on the handlebars. I went with handlebars.
The wiring is very basic, the hardest part was finding the power points in the fairing to power the thing. With advice from this site I removed the left storage compartment, the left speaker and the headlight. Surprisingly this was not that difficult. It is a bit difficult to find the connectors but I did. They are dual bullet connectors (yellow / black is negative) tucked up and to the right if you are looking in the fairing from where the headlight should be. I purchased bullet style male connectors for the power. I bought flexible wire loom and heat shrink from a store we have, called Princess Auto. Also using info from this site I figured out which wire was what for the AUX Input on the stereo. I soldered and heat shrunk those connections and tucked all the cables from the left compartment back in the fairing and plugged the hole. I now have another compartment with nothing in it.
The Bluetooth receiver connected to my phone so easily and will only connect to play media. I like this cause I wanted to use my helmet headset for hand-free calls, I didn't want my phone calls going through the speakers. It all works awesome, I can adjust volume on the phone as well as the stereo volume and I can select songs forward and backward as well as pause the music.
I am very happy with my purchase and thought i would share it.
