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.
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.
