I Want to Go Wireless - Blue Tooth!

I'm tired of having to disconnect myself from all the wires I have running from the bike (07 RT) to my helmet.

I currently have a 2 way radio for bike to bike, earplugs to hear ipod, xm music, directions for the street pilot gps, and most importantly the radar detector. I am running everything though an autocom set up that was installed about 3 years ago.

Is there an alternative set up that ya'll know of where I can get all that into my helmet via blue tooth? This weekend I was riding solo and decided not to plug anything in. It was such a pleasure at rests or gas stops to just step off of the bike without having to untangle and unplug myself.

Just wondering what the collective wisdom is on swapping out my technology. Thanks in advance.

Re: I Want to Go Wireless - Blue Tooth!

Sounds like you ride with a passenger some of the time. If you do and they listen to your XM through your wired system then you'd be better off to keep what you got. I found out that bluetooth has limitations at this time that would prohibit the passenger from hearing anything that the rider hears, at least wirelessly. There are some wireless systems out that have a cable that would go between the rider and passenger that would allow passenger to hear everything but if I had to do that I might as well stay with what I got. With the wireless system the passengers headset can be paired with another music source such as a phone or a bluetoothed ipod. For me this is a deal breaker since my SO listens to our XM and to the GPS. If you ride solo then the wireless systems are the way to go. I've been keeping my eyes and ears open in the hopes that someday soon someone will come out with a wireless system that will do everything without any wires whatsoever.

Re: I Want to Go Wireless - Blue Tooth!

My Zumo 665 through a J&M elite BT headset works great. Stereo Bluetooh, excellent fidelty and volume and you the firmware is upgradeable with the J&M. Their newest firmware allows you to pair Driver's headset tp Zumo and a phone to Zumo nad a passenger head set to the driver's headset.

When I bought mine you had to go hardwired from passenger to driver so my wife's headset is not blutooth capable but must use a cable to my helmet We can talk to each other, no VOX complications and she hears all I do! including XM. Works Great!

Also take a look at the SENA system, they now have a unit called SR10 that can take inputs from various devices http://www.senabluetooth.com/ it might be what you are looking for!

Thanks for the reply, but I never ride with a passenger (one of the formulas for us to a happy marriage ) so I don't have to worry about that part of the equation.

Thanks again.

Wow - looks like just the ticket I need. Evidently, San Diego BMW is a distributor, next time I am in the area I will stop by and see what all is needed.

Thanks again.

A Zumo 665 and this and you are set! the sound is excellent!

But you may be using some other source????

If you decide the J&M route is what you want, I'll turn you on to where i got my stuff at a discount and the installed it in my helmet too for cheap!

although I think a Shoei is a lot more difficult than an Arai!

Re: I Want to Go Wireless - Blue Tooth!

You will spend a lot of money, and get very frustrated trying to use a bluetooth system with the components you listed. Get very specific with each item before you dive into the bluetooth .........

1. Bike to bike frs/Gmrs
2. zumo
3. radar
4. phone

I know bluetooth will handle a couple of these devices but do not know of one that will handle all of them. Kieth

Re: I Want to Go Wireless - Blue Tooth!

Take a look at the SENA SR10, it allows you to hook all those into it which then is linked to your headset (Sena SMH10).
I don't own the SR10..& am not a stock holder of Sena.
