Communication system
8
Precondition
The BMW V.O.I.C.E. II communication system operates
with BMW stereo helmet
inserts or helmet inserts from
J&M Corporation. You also
need a compatible spiral
cable. Advice is available from
trade outlets or from your
authorised BMW motorcycle
dealer.
Using communication facilities can distract your
attention from the traffic and
lead to accidents.
Use the communication facilities only when the traffic situation enables you to do so without risk.c
Activating the communication system
Opening and closing the
radio compartment and
adjusting settings at the control unit can distract your attention from the traffic and
lead to accidents. Do not attempt to operate the control
unit while riding.c
• Open the lid of the radio
compartment.
• Switch on the ignition.
• Switch on the radio.
» Display shows On.
» The communication system
is active.
• Close the lid of the radio
compartment.
If you want to use the
communication facilities
without using any of the radio
functions, repeatedly press
the *CD button on the radio
until the radio display shows
INTERCOM.c
Connecting helmets
• Switch off speed-dependent
volume control at the radio
(see the operating instructions for the radio).
• Use spiral cable 2 to connect
cable 1 of the rider's helmet
to front-helmet socket 3.
10_BC_VOICE_04_g1.book Seite 9 Mittwoch, 28. Juli 2004 11:24 11
.
You can switch off the radio loudspeakers on the
motorcycle for music playback
(see the operating instructions
for the radio).c
Activating helmet
microphones
If you press the Send
buttonOA while talking,
your conversation is transmitted
if the two-way radio is switched
on, and other parties can listen
in.c
Using menus
• Speak into the helmet microphone.
» The microphone switches
itself on automatically.
• Use spiral cable 5 to connect
cable 4 of the passenger's
helmet to rear-helmet
socket 6.
» Radio output is now audible
in stereo quality on the
speakers integrated into the
helmet.
» The intercom system is active.
The music or the radio output is faded out while you
speak. Approximately
4 seconds after conversation
ceases the microphones go
dead and the music fades in
again.c
The microphones do not
activate themselves unless
the passenger's helmet is connected.c
Standby ON
When display 1 of the control
unit shows On and the LEDs
are all off, the communication
system's status is standby
ON.

Selecting a function
• Press knob 2.
» The function-selection mode

• Turn knob 2 until the LED
beside the function you want
to select lights up.
» The current value of the
function appears in
display 1.
The communication system returns to standby
ON if the knob is not moved for
5 seconds.c
Setting a function
• Press knob 2.
» The LED beside the function
you selected lights up.
» The 'function set' mode is
active.
• Turn knob 2 until the value
you want appears in
display 1.
• Press knob 2.
» The value you selected is
accepted.
» The function-selection mode
is active.
The communication system returns to standby
ON if the knob is not moved for
5 seconds. If you do not press
the knob after turning it to a
value of your choice the communication system returns to
standby ON, but note that the
new value is accepted even
though you did not press the
knob.c
The section entitled "Overview
of functions" (b 13) lists the
various functions and settings.
Restoring default
settings
• Press knob 1.
» The function-selection mode
is active.
• Turn knob 1 until the LED
beside g lights up.
• Press knob 1.
» The LED starts flashing.
• Hold knob 1 down for
5 seconds.
10_BC_VOICE_04_g1.book Seite 11 Mittwoch, 28. Juli 2004 11:24 11
The default volume for
output via the helmet
speakers might not match
your own personal
preferences.
Remove the helmets before
restoring the default
settings.c
The default settings are
not restored if you release the knob before the LED
stops flashing.c
Activation thresholds of
the microphones
Ambient noise increases as
the motorcycle's speed
increases (wind noise is a case
in point) and this higher noise
level could be sufficient to activate the microphones. In order
to avoid inadvertent activation
of this nature, the system has
activation thresholds to enable
automatic adjustment to the
noise level. Consequently,
when the motorcycle is travelling at speed you and your
passenger must speak more
loudly into the microphones in
order to activate them.
If automatic activation of the
microphones is not to your satisfaction, you can manually adjust
the activation threshold separately for each helmet (b 13).
The lower you set the
activation threshold, the
greater is the possibility of ambient noise activating the
microphone. Bear in mind that
inadvertent activation could
cause the audio source to fade
out, even though neither you
nor your passenger had spoken into the microphone.c
Speed-dependent
volume increase
The communication system
can automatically adapt the
playback volume to the speed
of the motorcycle. Note that in
order for it to do so, however,
the equivalent function must
be switched off at the radio
and you must have selected
one of five possible settings
(b 13).

Setting up an SRD
two-way radio
The BMW V.O.I.C.E. II communication system has a
socket for short-range devices
(SRD) for two-way radio communication; these devices
were formerly known as LPD
(low power devices). In order
to use an SRD transceiver you
need a radio adapter cable 1
and BMW Send buttonOA on
the handlebars. The radio
adapter cable must have two
