Since this is my first post I thought I would make it a good one, at least for those who have been patiently waiting for Kennedy to release the harness for the 2610.

First let me briefly introduce myself. My name is Bob Hohn. I ride a 2002 Silver Gold Wing and have owned several bikes previously. I am retired from the USAF Reserve and also from the Arizona Highway Patrol where I rode motors for about five years (what fun that was). I currently work in Washington DC for the US DOT. I have visited the board quite often and read all of the interesting information everyone has shared and decided it was time to participate. Enough about me.

Now for the good news. I received an e-mail from Jon at Kennedy Technology this afternoon advising that the wiring harnesses for the Garmin 2610 are complete and available. The following is the information in the e-mail:

The harness for the 2610 is done. Te following options are available
to you.

1. If you already own a Kennedy Technology CellSet MC/SP or MC/SP2,
RadarSet, old style DualSet (with hardwired 2.5 mm mono plugs),
GPS/MPGSet or GPSet-SP3, contact and order the Garmin
cable harness with the 2.5 mm jack molded into the cable harness.
GPSet owners merely cap and tie back the SP3 power plug.

I do not know the MSRP for this harness. Check with Cyclegadgets.

If you do not own one of these products, contact CycelGadgets and order
the SingleSet or DualSet with appropriate intercom harness, device
harness(es) and power harness(es). The 1800US power harness connects
the device harenss to a switched supply, the 1800-Euro harness is not
terminated with a hitachi type plug so you can connect it to an
unswitched source.

A note about power harnesses and device harnesses.

If you want to connect two devices and want one to have switched power
(e.g. radar detector) and the 2610 to be unswitched, buy one 1800US
Power harness and one 1800Euro harness. Connect the 1800US power
harness directly to the radar detector's device harness. Similarly,
attach the 1800Euro power harness directly to the 2610 device harness.

If you want both devices to be switched, just purchase one 1800US power
harness (1800Euro for unswitched) and connect it to the DualSet.
DualSet splits the power harness and feeds it to each device harness.

MSRP for the SIngle Set with 2610 device harness is $99.95
MSRP for the DualSet with 2610 harness and radar detector harness is
$149.95. Add $10 for additional power harness.

Hopefully some of you are as excited about this information as I am. Now all I need to do is get a mount to put it on my bike. I know it works great in my truck. I look forward to learning more from all of you and hopefully we can hook up at some point and do some riding together.

I do not own a GPS yet, but plan to get one in the near future. If we are to order the harness from Cyclegadgets, then where does Kennedy come into play? Thanks.

Just received an e-mail from Jon at Kennedy Technology Group with the same information. Thanks for getting this ready before riding season! :s27:
