First my name is Spencer, I am the sales manager down at Benchmark Helmets. I am a technofile, however I am a sport bike guy who is just starting to get into the whole com side of the motorcycle world.
I was told by the IMC/Camos person that a bluetooth adapter is in development for the BMW audio output, meaning it would sync with a Bluetooth helmet headset, thus eliminating the wires. I was also told it would be Bluetooth 2.0, so it would support hi-fi audio and hopefully some sort of prioritizing, we are hoping to see a finished product around November.
for the bluetooth module you would need to contact Autocom, I don't really know that much about how devices interface with their units, if they have a Bluetooth module just ask if it supports the hands free protocol, and make sure your phone will support it as well. All of the bluetooth headsets we distribute support this however you would just be bypassing the Autocom.
I really would like to get a forum retailer involved in any group buy, we could offer them a discount and they could pass it on to you guys via a coupon code. I will work on that.
We actually received a device prototype from China that does what you want however it was powered off regular alkaline batteries which we did not like that much, plus we would have to retail it for 300 dollars, however the product is almost there, with a little development I think we will have a solution. Does the autocom sync via Bluetooth with a headset? Isn't it fairly expensive.
