New here but have been lurking for a bit. A little background.

Predominately used on a bike
Mostly open country. Plains and flatland at home, mountains when I can
I avoid metro areas and am not concerned there
I like to listen to music when I ride. Wireless or wired earbuds
Deaf in one ear

Problem. I was going to use a mixiit 2 http://www.mixitproducts.com Contacted them and they have no experance with it being used with a Uniden. He did some research and found info here indicating it may not work due to low output in the auxiliary. $80 to send it somewhere and warranty voided.

I really think the R1 would work great for me. My thoughts are by a rebuilt due to the shorter warranty. Run it in the car this winter to get used to it and then have tie output mod done.

The question(s). Is it super difficult to do? Ant pics or tutorials anyone has seen? Are there other workarounds if I want audio and radar together. Thanks

Thank you! I had read that just the other night but got lost whenever you went into geek mode. :) So basically the mic it or amplirider should work? Your last post or 2 indicated something you had to add? Sorry, I am a bit dense on electronic matters. Just want to speed and listen to my jams.

I'm trying to match both the music level and the RD level at the inputs at the mixer, so that it works going into the rest of the audio system (I have a Goldwing...)

So, the electronic geek-out toward the end is the level matching. See, the RD does have steps to attenuate the sound, but they are VERY big steps (1 was too soft, 2 was blowing my ears up) using the Amplrider amp. The other issue was all the audio in the system created a 'ground loop' (which shows up as buzzing or humming. The blocking capacitor added to the circuit eliminated that.

Now, I have the RD at 4 and it is at the same level.

The Mix-It 2 has a bit of matching done internally in the amp itself. It may work as-is, it may need a little help to make it work.

Hopefully that explains it a bit further.
