Audio Vox cruise control install

I am in the middle of installing a AudioVox ccs 100 and and was wondering.
Did anyone ever come up with a definitive answer as to whether this does in fact work as a VSS signal for the cruise control?
Also if it works does that mean you don't need to tap into the coil and if you still do where is the best place to do it?

The K1200S and the R1200GS have a connector near the front of the bike for connection to the GPS accessory. This connector has three wires:

Brown = ground (pin 1)
Blue/Green = TAA (pin 2)
Red/White = switched power (pin 3)

I will be hanging a scope off of the TAA lead next weekend, but I am fairly sure it is a conditioned speed pulse from the ZFE (chassis control module). This would be used by a GPS employing dead reckoning, not currently used by BMW. The Rostra unit also looks at an engine tach pulse and disengages the cruise control in the event of throttle runaway.

The Rostra has all of the electronics and a throttle servo in one module and can be purchased for about $200. Here is a link to Rostra controls website.
