New Install R1200GS Adventure: Trigger Issues


Just installed on a 2018 R1200GS Adventure, can't seem to get it to work without using the silver power button on the DVR unit, then it doesn't seem to want to turn off. Followed INNOVV recommendation to use the tail light wiring for the 'yellow' trigger (Red/Grey striped cable BMW), but I've seen elsewhere on this forum someone suggesting BMW 'pulses' the led's in the tail light - so the trigger may not work...??? Anyone know anything...???

Hi Brian i have used the rear light feed to operate a relay with no problems, put a volt meter across the feed to earth it should detect any voltage fluctuation/pulse, i used the accessory socket feed when i did mine. are you giving the unit time to power on and off on its own (10 sec delay)?

Problem solved! Tried to use one of those blue scotchblock connectors - but it didn't cut right through the insulation on the two cables - consequently the trigger function was not working. I took the whole thing apart, removed the connector and SOLDERED the cables together. I should have done this first time round....doh!! Trigger function and full system operating as it should now, even saw the G-sensor function come into use as I was re-assembling everything.

Fortunately you have managed to solve the problem.

I do not want to advise anyone about using a scotch block.

It's a mess. There is also a chance that the cable will eventually be cut due to the vibration. Soldering is simply the best.

I have installed mobile phones in cars for years and I know from experience that scochtblock is synonymous with malfunction.

It can take a short time or a long time, but you will definitely have problems with a scotchblock.

You can now start enjoying the video recordings!

  • @Michael Williams asked in in another thread where we are all from. I am interested in this, too. But as we should not spam a thread about a technical problem with off-topic posting, I decided that is would be better to create a separate thread for this. So here it is and everybody is invited to tell us where he/she is from and show us how international this forum is. I am located in a small city beside Duesseldorf, Germany, and riding a Tiger 1200 XRT.
  • Had the K2 for 5 days now. Overall its pretty good. I have a few issues that I need to look into. 1 - The lens seems to black out in the bottom (say 4 and 8 O'Clock) A bit like the lens has Glaucoma... 2 - I start my bike, put helmet, gloves on, ride off, but recording doesn't start until I am a few miles away, has to be at least 5 minutes after setting off, and maybe 6 minutes after starting the bike. An I supposed to wais 6 minutes before setting off? 3 - I have to do something with how I transfer the files, WiFi just doesn't cut it. My bike (R1250GS Adventure) automatically powers off after X minutes, not sure exactly how many, to preserve the battery, the WiFi hasn't managed to transfer a 3 minute file before the bike powers off. I cant view from the bike, stream, as it doesn't stream, it just jitters from frame to frame. I have an iPhone XS Max if that makes any difference. So far I have not been able to download or view any recording, only when setting up on live view. On the plus side, it only took 30 minutes to set up on the bike, only having to remove the tank panel. Does anyone have any thoughts on my three issues?
  • After the firmware v61 update, I noticed the blue light on the power transformer never goes off - no matter how long the bike is off. Is this normal? What could possibly be powering this other than my battery?
