Lost my Bluetooth for a while - A royal PITA
I had my 6,000 mile service done and this was the first time the bike had been back to the local shop since the 600 mile service.
As I was leaving the BMW dealer, I noticed that I could not hear any audio coming from the bike to my helmet. It took me about 45 minutes to get back to my home and the radio and GPS were not necessary so I just ignored the lack of audio and enjoyed the ride.
Once home, I realized that the Bluetooth was not paired so it was necessary to reset the bike to the helmet and then the GPS to the helmet.
It was easy to reset the bikes intercom to the helmet, but not so for the GPS. Seems like I remember it being difficult the first time to pair the GPS to the helmet and it was no easier this time. I probably had to try at least 6-10 times before it would work.
Does anyone have any hints or tricks to make it pair any easier? I think I followed the instructions correctly with the light flashing on the helmet, but for some strange reason it took multiple tries to get it to work. After several tries, I deleted all information and started over. After a few more tries, all was good.
