First of all, let me say that I received my 2820 and started using it in the car along with my RAZR. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!
It works great! It sounds great! And I am so excited about using it on my bike ... can't wait!!!
As far as the rest of the system goes, well, I currently have the old Intaride RP1 system. And, I have always loved it. All except for the wired-phone aspect of it. For some reason, that was the Achilles heel of the system. The connection right at the phone would always get compromised and it was just a pain in the neck. Plus the fact that if it rained, I would have to put my cell phone in my tank-bag's map pocket and lose the functionality of my phone. Argh! That's why I'm so excited about having a Bluetooth connection between my phone and waterproof GPS. Now I don't have to worry about the wired connection, or frying my phone in the rain.
I said all that to tell you that I've been talking with Intaride about what it would take to convert (upgrade?) my current system to their new totally Bluetooth-enable system. It's over $800
And I just don't know if getting rid of the wire from helmet to bike is worth all of that. That's really all that the new & improved
system would buy me.
Sooooo ... I think I'm just going to appreciate the fact that this year brings a new Bluetooth phone and a new Bluetooth GPS to the party, and the rest of it will have to wait until the technology becomes more affordable. At least to this working-class schmuck.
