Question Autocom and Motorola Rokr/Slvr

I am looking at a new cell phone, and had the thought of the Rokr or Slvr from Mototola, as they have the itunes built in. I don't have an ipod, unless I borrow , my daughters. At the moment, I have a Sony mp3 disc player hooked up in the tank bag going into the Autocom, and it has a wired remote that hangs onto the side of the bag I can adjust volume and such. Has anyone done this or thought of it?

I just got a SLVR the other day. The SLVR comes with an adapter that takes a standard 3.5mm jack that goes to my autocom. The volume on the SLVR is pretty loud, so I didn't even need to use my boostaroo.

BTW, I don't know how you can use the "wired" setup to use the phone, but Autocom does have their Bluetooth interface. But I'm not going to use the phone while riding anyway.

Thanks Eljeffe,
I saw the adapter for the 3.5 plug, but I believe it was if you wanted to use another pair of headphones. I don't believe it has the capability for the microphone. I have sent Autocom an email and hope they have something in the works, as this would really be a neat setup. I also saw an adapter on evilbay, but have not gotten a response from the seller if it works with the microphone either. The Autocom bluetooth adapter is pretty expensive right now.

Actually, I did some searching on Google. On AdvRider.com, there is a guy who is using his RAZR (which has the same mini-USB plug as the SLVR) and Autocom by going through his HF820 Bluetooth Speakerphone. The HF820 has a 3.5mm jack on it for a privacy headset, and can be used to connect it to the Autocom. Coincidentally, I already have the HF820, but they are only $79 if you look hard enough (much cheaper than the Autocom bluetooth interface).

Thanks again Eljeffe.
Even if the HF 820 doesn't put out in stereo, I could still be able to leave my phone in my jacket. You know, when the Boss calls and wants to make sure I haven't ended up in a ditch somewhere. She only worries when I'm not unloading those suspicious containers. Maybe it's more dangerous on the highway than at work.

There are quite a few on evilbay. Around $50. Alot cheaper than both of the modules you have to buy from Autocom. I don't know about everyone else's location, but the Radio Shack here has the Rokr and I can upgrade for $.01 -- yes, that's one cent.!
