First, it's time to trade in the old K12RS for the K16GTL. Big step, but the pillion rider likes it and my knees are suggesting it's time as well.
I've never used a communicator aboard a bike in the nearly 40 years I've been riding. Ever. Never really wanted one. I've also never used a GPS, as I enjoy having no care where I am, until I need to care. However, it's also getting impossible to read the map on top of the chart bag. Now I'm being convinced to make phone calls and actually have a conversation with the pillion, rather than just a shoulder tap when its time to find a restroom. Wow.
Lots of toys on the GTL and I was told by my the dealer that only the BMW communicator is fully compatible with the K16GTL bluetooth.
Q1.. Does anyone know what functionality one would lose if they went with the OEM Schuberth communicator on the C3 Pro? The reason I like the Schuberth is it would take 5 mins to swap back to having no mic in the helmet, when I don't want one, and there is nothing mounted on the outside of the helmet.
Q2.. Is the BMW mic quickly removable?
Thanks for the feedback.
