Add a 3.5mm audio out jack

I'd like to add a 3.5mm output Jack to the stellar stereo system on my new GA. I would like to do this so I can plug in my Fit Ear fitted earbuds directly into the system and listen to the output from the stereo (Sirius, FM primarily). I did this on my 2013 GTL using an Autocom 2273 and it worked fine. Do you guys know if an Autocom 2273 is still available? I can't seem to find it online. If it is no longer available, any other suggestions that I can pursue to accomplish this? Eventually I'll pursue a good Bluetooth work around for this pathetic sound system (Sena maybe) but in the meantime I want to listen to the radio using my Fit Ear buds plugged directly into the system while still using the wonder wheel functions, which I could do using the Autocom 2273 set up I had on my previous GTL.

Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

A few added a 3.5mm to the dash a couple years ago. Connected the jack wires to the speaker wires.

I "think" I have a 2273 cable. I'll check and let you know.

Thanks atc250r.

I'll give Adam a call.

Do you know if there advantages to using the Motochello Speaker bridge vs. using the Autocom 2273 setup that I used a few years ago on my other bike? I'm kind of a neophyte to all of this audio stuff. I just like to listen to music once in a while when I ride, but not through those crappy speakers!

@Ronpie , I "think" the 2275 does the same as the 2273, difference the 2275 let's you switch between the speakers / 3.5... PART 2275
Designed to let you connect a typical car type stereo system to a bike powered Autocom, and then switch the music between either the on-bike speakers, or through the Autocom headset/s.
