Re: Helmets and non-bluetooth to bluetooth conversion..
I just wrote a post about this and my thoughts on BlueTooth in the helmet.
My PERSONAL opinion: I can't stand the thought of having to plug in my helmet(s) every night to keep my helmets charged, and the thought of them dying on a long ride?? NO thanks. Or are you going to blue tooth your helmet for sound, and still run a power cable to them to keep them charged?
Bluetooth is convenient to a degree, but you'll never match the sound of a hardwired helmet, nor be as convenient as a hardwired helmet
I bought two Nolan N103's just to be able to bluetooth them together, because I thought that was COOL.. (I'm somewhat of a tech geek) after thinking about it, and doing some research I said NO thanks.
I have a Zumo 550 hardwired to an Autocom Super Pro Avi, which is hardwired to my helmet. LOVE it. Phone bluetooths in, I have XM.. intercom works great, and if need be I can take calls and the sound is good.
Just my two cents.
