Cell phone location

Two points of view: (1) Don't carry anything on your person that you wouldn't want to fall on (cell phones are small, but hard); and (2) if you have an accident and you can't crawl back to the bike, it would be better if the cell phone was on your person (you can hope it didn't get destroyed in the accident).

So (cell phone for emergency purposes) which do you prefer? Cell phone on the bike, or in your pocket?

For me, it's cell phone turned off in the tank bag.

I couldn't agree more. When I go for a ride the last thing I want to hear is that phone. I understand the "being prepared for anything" theory but I have to draw the line somewhere.

That being said, I am considering an emergency locator device that can also call 911 - that I could see carrying in my jacket. At least it won't ring while I'm trying to relax and enjoy my ride.

My 2 cents.

Bike Pants Pocket

It might be handy at times to be able to use it on the bike, but I just haven't taken the time to hook it up to the Auto Comm. Probably safest to just keep it off and away from my hands while riding. If needed in an emergency and it didn't break from a slide or impact on the road, I have it handy. Never really gave that reason much thought though. I use it for my convenience, not someone trying to find me.

I run the phone on the bike at all times. I have voice activated dialing and have helped police take several drunk drivers off the road. The best part is the only incoming calls I ever get is from the wife as I don't use the phone for any other purpose as I am indoors at work and no cell phones will work there. On long trips I carry one of my older non-active phones on the body as it can be used for 911 calls should I become separated from the bike in an accident.

Carry mine in the tank bag and use the Navy III and Navy headset, works great, however, I receive very very very few incoming calls. It is comforting to know my wife can contact me if needed. Should I get a call I tell the caller I will call them back ASAP, pull over and make the call.

AS far as to where to carry the phone (take bag or On person) I have debated that question myself, I try to limit objects in my pockets (that's what tank bags are for)for the reasons mentioned, tank bag works for me.

Guess there is no right answer, depends what you are comfortable with.

I used to keep the cell phone in the oddments box. I routed the Autocom phone cable there. When I stopped I had to take the phone out, and replace it when it was time to go.

Now that I have the Zumo and a bluetooth phone (and a bluetooth adaptor connected to the Autocom phone cord), the phone works wherever. At first I kept it in the trunk while riding (I don't use my tank bag all the time). One day I forgot and left the phone in my front pants pocket. It was with me when I got off the bike. I've tended to just keep it in my pants pocket since then.

Yes, it's a hard object but it's mostly rounded and pretty small. I think it's better to keep something in your pants pocket than in a jacket pocket where it might break a rib if you fell on it.

I don't have my bike wired with any e-gizmos except for a GPS I plug in and attach to the top of my tank bag...that's it. I don't want the phone distracting me while riding...so I have no need to attach it to the bike and wire it into any comms. Cell phone distraction is my biggest pet-peeve against cagers...I'd be a hypocrite if I did it too.

I ride in the desolate SW U.S. I figure I could have a get-off and not be noticed for some time. Thus I keep my cell phone on my person so IF I ever become separated from the bike it's still right there with me. My cell stays in one of my jacket pockets. It's of no use to me if I'm lying 3 ft away from the bike and unable to move to the bike to retrieve it.

I keep my phone in the tank bag bluetoothed to the Voice II. While I get or make few calls, I find it handy to have connected at all times particularly when I am trying to link up with other riders when I am not in range of FRS communications.

Usually tank bag, however, I've been known to forget leave it in my front pocket. Front pocket is where I keep mine most of the time. So when i'm on the cycle the last thing I want is a phone call from someone. I don't answer the phone and the person calling can wait. I will check in from time to time with my wife when out on a few hundred mile day, usually to say i'm running late or i'm "lost" again.

Unlike most of y'all, I talk on my cellphone A LOT while riding (especially cross-country). I don't find it anymore distracting than talking with my wife sitting right behind me. In fact, I enjoy being able to call my family and friends back home and give them updates on my current location. Way cool!

You've probably seen the pic of my GT's cockpit (if not click). In the past, I would keep my cellphone on the bike as long as it was not raining. That way I could see if a call was coming in, or if I had missed a call or had voicemail. I also got pretty good at flipping it open and dialing with gloves on!

But this year, I have a new RAZR and a new 2820, so I'll be utilizing the Bluetooth connection and won't need to have my cellphone handy. However, I will probably still have it mounted in the same place as I had my LG VX6100. And if it threatens rain, I'll put it safely in the tankbag out of harms way.

All of that to say ... No, I never keep my cellphone on my person while riding. Nor do I keep my wallet on me. Just my I.D. card. Although, some of the posts in this thread makes a guy wonder. It would suck to crash and not be able to get back to your cellphone which just might save your life. Hhmmn...

Joe,

That's a great looking layout. Are you using Blue Teeth? I had my old cellphone hardwired into my Com II and it would very well, then changed companies and now have a Sony Erickson phone which will not work with my Com System, so it's in the trunk for the phone. Bummer, I've been trying to discover a way to get a new GPS that will work with my Com and Blue tooth to the cell, but so far, no luck. Anyway, that one nice set up you got there.

Thanks Doc. Yes, I am using Bluetooth from my phone to my GPS. I got a new Motorola RAZR and a Garmin 2820 this year. (I'll have to update my pic.) The Bluetooth works flawlessly.

I'll probably wait until next Spring to go with Bluetooth helmets. By that time the price will come down considerably.

I'm with you on that, I take most all of my business calls while on the road, as well as checking in with family and friends. If I don't tell the caller, they don't know if I'm in the office or riding in the desert or mountains. My phone is connected to the Autocom system and I keep the phone velcoed to the top of the tankbag, if I hit rain I throw it inside the bag. Works for me. -Chuck-

Which intercom are you using and did you have trouble getting the 2820 to work with it? Garmin tells me they can not make a cable to connect the 2820 to my BMW Com II. That's my problem. If I could figure out how to hard wire the 2820 to my com and bluetooth the cellphone to the com, I'd be set. For now, I'd have to change out the com system on 2002 LT or just not be able to use the phone. I am really wanting to upgrade my GPS as the Street Pilot III is really, really, really slow. So, looks like I'll do it all when I get my next bike and go bluetooth all the way, unless I can figure out someway to use my existing com system.

I have an IntaRide RP1 intercom system. It has a separate input for cell phone, GPS, and music ... so getting the 2820 to integrate with it is not an issue. In fact, it works flawlessly, Just tested it tonight.

What inputs do you have on that BMW Com II system of yours? Can you take pics?

Not sure, I'd have to take the sting ray off to see. I know that there is an accessory plug in the glove box, but have heard it doesn't work with much. I'll try to look on the CD service manual for pictures. I've heard that the cable for the 2720 can be modified to work, but don't think it has bluetooth for the cellphone. I have a factory CB wire to it somehow and I have an FRS plug that works with the com system. There is a plug to the cellphone also, but it only works with certain phones. I had to get an adaptor for the Nokia phone to work, but can not find one for the Sony-Erickson. I've been told that the Zumo can be plugged into the accessory plug, but that the radio auto-mute does not work when it give messages.

I keep my phone on me. I use a Motorola HF800 Bluetooth adapter that I keep in the oddment box and connect to the Baehr cable via the 2.5 mm connector. Works OK and the price was right, I got the HF800 on eBay for around $30.00.

I thought about it before deciding to keep the phone on me. I used to have it in the oddment box and connected to the Baehr cable, but after further consideration I opted to have it on me. The phone is less likely to hurt me than protect me in an impact situation as it is flat against me and would take most of the hit before my skin does.
Another consideration... Half the time I used to forget my phone on the bike and had to run back only for find that I had missed calls...

Re: Cell phone location

I usualy have mine on my belt. I happened to have my phone in my pants(side pocket) when I got hit. I was able to call my wife which, since she heard MY voice, let her handle the situation a lot better than if she got the,"official" call from the police or the hospital. Plus I then called my buddy who, once he realized that I wasn't joking, he made sure that my LT made it to my garage instead of where the tow truck driver wanted to take it.

Re: Cell phone location

No calls while riding for me. PERIOD. The cell phone stays in the chest pocket, and the bluetooth on my ZUMO lets me know who is trying to call me. If it warrants it, I pull over and call back.
