    Cool Communication systems

    I am looking at purchasing a communcation system for my 04 RT. I have been hesitent to pull the triger and spend the money without actualy hearing some real feedback on what others have already found out.

    I like the idea of the bluetooth technology and not having wired hanging all over me and my passenger. I do not want to end up doing this if I buy a system that does not work well

    Dan,

    I've been using the Motorola bluetooth setup. It is a rider-passenger intercom plus the rider can answer a cell phone call. While on a call, the intercom is disabled. The passenger will not hear the conversation through the intercom and the intercom is automatically enabled once the cell call terminates.

    In theory, you could use it as a bike-to-bike communicator, as long as the distance is within 30'.

    The headsets need synchronized only once, after that they will automatically connect. Uses standard Motorola charger.

    Good luck,
    Tim

    I just installed an AutoCom Super Pro AVi, Pro-Duo kit on my R12RT. It's not bluetooth but I'm very happy with the sound quality and it was extremely easy to install even for this non-wrencher.

    I have the AutoComm and am very happy with it. Although the new Chatterbox that should be coming out in the near future with BlueTooth sounded pretty good at the Dealer Show.

    The model # is HS830, which is avallable with & without the motorcycle pieces. The motorcycle pieces include a helmet speaker and boom microphone unit that attaches to the helmet. It comes with an adhesive strip, but I mounted mine using some spare chatterbox parts.

    It works quite well as intended and there are no cables to get tangled up. It is a very clean setup in that regard. The primary drawback is that you can't use the headsets for listening to music or a radio broadcast.

    Here is a quick review http://www.motorbiker.org/blogs.nsf/...2230MWENDM.htm
