I'm successfully using Camos BTS200's in my setup. Paired with Zumo550 for directions, MP3's and XM Sat. Zumo is paired with iPhone for calls. I also get Valentine 1 radar alerts into, but this required some special hookup that I have posted previously.
I like the bluetooth setup for freeing me up from most of the wires. The connection to Zumo and to my riding partner work fine. A full charge lasts a long day of riding and I bring charger for overnite recharging of headsets. Works fine. Takes some reading and practice getting everything to pair and it must be done right, but then, once it's paired it stays paired and you just have to turn everything on and it auto-connects. To get stereo out of the Zumo requires a small bluetooth 'dongle' (I used WiREvo D1000, $60) plugged into the Zumo's audio output, as the Zumo 550 does not broadcast stereo. With this I get stereo audio which sounds much better than one channel.
I consider the bluetooth headsets not to be a mature technology, and look forward to the next generation, as the current crop is not quite there for the money, but fun to play with if you can afford a second set of helmets for wireless and one set for wired (I have my wireless using Baehr intercom, a great but expensive setup.
