2021 S1000R aux power sockets?
on: June 09, 2021, 06:28:58 PM
Has anyone found / used an aux power socket at the front of the bike on the new 2021 S1000R?  And has anyone done a guide to remove the fairing to get at them. The rear USB socket is pretty hopeless as there isn't space for a phone under the rear seat hump!  The old model had 2 aux sockets on the wiring harness on the front left of the bike and I added an aux USB power source on the front of bike using them.  I'd like to do the same with my new bike.  I rode it back from London to Shrewsbury cross country using the directions via the screen bluetooth functionality, but my phone (running the BMW direction app and me listening to music via wired headphones) was dead by the end of the trip. So for any long trip I will need to plug it in - I normally mount it with a ram mount and a quad lock on the handlebars.....

Any help appreciated.

Same issues here - although I've stuck a battery bank in my tank bag with a cable going to the quad lock on the bike. It's been working very well, as in I can also keep my phone and headset topped up off the bike.

Found the accessories male plug under the left fairing.  It gives 5v when the ignition is on to power a USB socket.   Although the plug looks similar to the 12v male plug on my previous bikes the female male accessory plug will not fit (a guide slot is positioned differently).  Does any one know the part number the 5v male plug? I can’t find it online…..

I presume there must also be a connection for the Motorrad sat nav for use with the magic wheel?

I’ve been back to BMW to ask about a connector but so far no luck….I didn’t find any other connectors on the left side and certainly not the 2 connectors (like on my GS) required to control a ‘navigator’..  I suspect BMW are not expecting people to fit a Navigator because you can get nav instructions on the TFT screen via Bluetooth and the BMW phone app…hence only a 5v usb connector…

So what does the wheel do?

The wheels controls navigation (route options etc.), media (music / playlists) and calls on the TFT dash via blue tooth to your paired phone and intercom system.  Seems to work well.  The only thing that is 'niggly' with it is the time it takes to pair with phone and headset when starting up (for instance after a refuel).  You have to wait a minute before setting off to ensure everything is connected and working - so that it shows route instructions as you pull away.

Too many distractions IMO. Last thing I want to do is listen to music and answer bloody phone calls. Riding a motorcycle is the only time I’m away from all of that.

And the navigation display on the TFT screen had me confused.  The symbol for a roundabout is always the same and shows the route goes straight on, but the exit required is shown numerically (as in '3).  Before I figured it out I went straight on at number of roundabouts.  You would have thought a graphic symbol showing the number of exits and the one to take wouldn't have been difficult to implement (or take much memory)...and it would be much more intuitive.
