Baehr and Mobiles
I don't know about other brands but I know any Nokia phone will work with the Baehr. I work for Nokia in Australia and have been using quite a few different Nokia models with the Baehr, I can't help myself, I have to try the latest models.....
There are two ways to connect, and at the moment, (commercially) there is only one, and that way is by using the Baehr phone cable and the appropriate adaptor for the phone. The Baehr cable has a 3.5m phono type connector, a few, but not many, Nokia phones accept this connector without an adapter. For most Nokia models you will need an adapter and the easiest way to get one is to go to a phone accessories shop and buy a personal handsfree kit that will suit any brand of cellphone, they have a heap of adapters that suit different brands and a earpiece/microphone with a 3.5m phono jack that plugs into the adapters. Throw the earpiece/microphone away and just use the appropriate adapter along with the Baehr phone cable. You can set your phone to "auto answer" when connected to the handsfree if you wish, that way you don't have to do anything when a call comes in but wait until it answers.
I mentioned there were two ways to connect; the second is Bluetooth. I heard last week that Baehr are planning to bring out a Bluetooth unit in the first quarter of 2006 that will work with the K1200 unit. Currently there are no commercial Bluetooth units that will work with the Baehr that I am aware of. I have made my own and have been using it since Bluetooth first appeared in cellphones. Bluetooth works well with the Baehr, the best bit is you don't even have to think about your phone, just jump on the bike, start it up, and at the same time your phone connects to the intercom whilst still in your pocket. Magic....
