GPS, Bluetooth, Baehr, iPod - ARGHH!!!!!!!!
I AM STYMIED -
I have a 2003 K1200LT, highly farkelized. I do very few of the mods myself as I would rather ride during the rare "spare" time.
One of the farkles that I do not have, yet still covet, is a GPS. I have spent literally dozens of hours reading about the myriad options available to me and I am nothing but MORE CONFUSED.
I have a Baehr K1200LT audio system, J&M outfitted (wired) helmets, listen to CD changer/FM radio 100% of the time during riding (through the external speakers or the helmet headphones when connected).
I carry an iPhone and would like to have the capability to answer select calls while underway. I do not know if this is possible, as I normally wear gloves that preclude manually actuating the iPhone's touchscreen, nor do I know how to make it accessible while riding. I also would like the opportunity to listen to my iPod on occasion, but have the same questions of controlling the device while controlling the LT.
I readily accept that I am ignorant to the benefits of Bluetooth, or even the applicability thereof, in this instance.
In order of importance my priorities are:
Can someone please make a recommendation of a GPS, whether it should or should not be Bluetooth enabled, and how I might go about accessing the iPhone and/or iPod while underway?
Sincerely and humbly - The technologically paralyzed neophyte.

Yesterday is history; Tomorrow is mystery,
Today is a gift from God......
That's why they call it "the present".
