Facebook post, BMW bluetooth system

Anyone using facebook may have seen this post today, but I though there might be interest here.

BMW Motorrad Communication System
Enjoy a more connected riding experience

The roar of the engine and the sound of the wind rushing by are an

integral part of the motorcycle experience. We don’t want to change that

experience – we just want to make it even better. For example,

background noise can often make communications difficult, but with the

BMW Motorrad communication system, that simply isn’t an issue any more.

The key is its location: the device is actually fitted to the inside of

the helmet, and so the shell absorbs almost all the external noise.

Riders are connected in a variety of ways, with the system allowing them

to talk directly to their passenger, take calls, and listen to music,

all while GPS guides them safely to their destination. And all without

having to take their eyes off the road for a second. Discover it for

yourself: the BMW Motorrad communication system adds a whole new

dimension to riding safety and excitement.



Function

Easy operation for maximum safety and practicality.

All the functions of the BMW Motorrad communication system can be accessed

via three buttons on the left-hand side of the helmet. As such, it is

exceptionally easy to operate and increases rider safety.

The system must be fitted by a dealer initially, but once installed, users can easily pair it with whatever devices they wish.



Bluetooth® technology for wireless communications.

All the cabling required for the BMW Motorrad communication system is built

into the kit that fits the Schubert C3 and C3W helmets. Data is

transmitted wirelessly via Bluetooth, for maximum freedom of movement

and practicality. This also means the system is fully compatible with

the BMW Motorrad Navigator lll, lll plus and lll plus 2008, the BMW

Motorrad ZUMO, and most Bluetooth-enabled.

Gary,

You have to have "friended" BMW Touring USA to see the post. If you have a facebook account search for BMW Touring.

Re: Facebook post, BMW bluetooth system

Wonder if it is the same as the SRC system offered by Shuberth and compatable?

Re: Facebook post, BMW bluetooth system

The description sure sounds like it, and the price matches. And in turn, the SRC is just a Scala with special construction to fit in a C3.
