I have the autocom.
I had it on my RT for a few years and now mine is being installed on the GT.
I think the first thing you should do is manage your expectations. These things do work but not in my opinion without some level of acceptance of the facts. Here are a few facts:
1. Listening to music with the in helmet speakers is NEVER going to be as good as listening to music with in ear speakers. That said, I don't like in-ear speakers (ear plugs) because you can't hear the traffic around you. I honestly believe that safe riding means using all of your senses with the exception of perhaps taste.
I think the taste comes from having a BMW.
2. You will have some level of engine noise in the autocom. A good install will minimize this--but it will be there.
3. It is a bit fiddle prone. It takes time to get the VOX settings "tuned in" for your riding conditions.
4. Bike to Bike is uni-directional, meaning you have to teach yourself to talk when it is your turn. I highly suggest not trying to use VOX for this, instead using a Push to Talk button.
5. The cables do wear out and they are expensive to replace.
6. The cables will introduce noise (static) and you will need to keep the contacts clean.
7. Passengers in particular will forget to disconnect themselves from the system when they get off the bike. This leads to wear and tear on the plugs and cables slapping into the side of your motorcycle from time to time.
8. I love mine. I wouldn't want to be without it.
