Bluetooth headset for helmets

I bought a K1200s with the bags and navigation system. I am looking to get a bluetooth headset so I can hear the voice commands without having to take my eyes off the road. Which headset is a good one that won't fall off or shut off when you put your helmet on?

cool thanks Tony! Could you give me the website so I can take a look at the items? Does it have to be helmet mounted? The regular earpiece won't fit under the helmet right? Thanks for your help

How do you recharge it?

Is it easy to remove from the helmet?

What helmet are you using?

It comes with its own wall charger . It took about two hours to charge . The helmet module attaches to the helmet with double sided 3m tape , it has a foam covered mic and an external ear speaker that attaches with velcro or a zip tie. The bluetooth module slips inside the helmet module . it also comes with a necklace that the module plugs onto with a built in earphone and mic. It also has the ability to act as a intercom if you have a second unit . Since my wife has seen it now I have to order another one. THERE ARE THREE BUTTONS ON THE MODULE two outside buttons are for the volume and the large center button has a multifunction ,answer ,end call,mute and to standby the intercom . I have it attached to my shoei duotec.I have been playing with an issue with the nav3 ,it disconnected the phone from the nav3 stating weak bluetooth signal from the phone. My phone is a razr v3. I have reinstalled both units to the nav3 this evening and will try it out on a ride tomarrow.

This item had a good review but cost over 100.00 more.

On another note : I just found out from garmin by phone that motorola phones once paired with the gps along with a bluetooth headset have an issue ,they disconnect via the bluetooth signal from the gps while on the phone. Garmin claims its and issue with motorola having a weak bluetooth signal while on a call. The headset does not disconnect. Has anyone else had this issue with other phones other than motorola?

Thanks for the update.

Keep us posted.

Any idea how it will work when paired to two phones at the same time?
I always have my Treo and my Nokia, both currently paired to my bluetooth headset. But have not tried with the NavIII.
