Does this exist yet?

I'm tired of an umbilical cord between my helmet and a comm unit. So, does anyone know if this can be done:
1. Wireless between helmet and comm unit. (Bluetooth would be nice).
2. Blue Tooth capability for Blue Tooth enable cell phones.

Thanks

There are several Bluetooth helmets out there. Schuberth makes one for BMW (System V). Now, finding a com system. Also, you might check the thread from yesterday where someone has found a headset that works with bluetooth for about $40.

I'm wondering if you can interface the new autocom, garmin 2830 (XM and MP3)
and the Schuberth BMW (System V) ? All have bluetooth capability and all seem like they will work.

Just when I bought a new Nolan (presume it does not qualify per their FAQ) but am pursuing this as it's quite interesting. I did purchase from Cardo Wireless some technology . . . am not necessarily convinced it will work but worth a try.

BTW, I have the same earphones you have as you recommended them to me; the tip inserts that are NOT moldable seem to work best for noise protection . . . are you still using them. Can't remember the names but I just bought what you recommended. Now, that introduces a new set of problems. ho hum

I don't know which ones I recommended, but I am using the Etyomotic ER6i headphones into my autocom. Are you thinking of the bluetooth sets that the other guy was talking about?

Yeah, those are the ones I have also. In fact I just sent them an e-mail (tried calling) I wanted to buy some of the 'tips' that can be replaced. Did you put a comm system on your GT yet? Which one. I am just currently either plugging directly into iPod OR directly into 376C.

Will continue investigating Nolan's system but expect to not hear from them just like most of the other CONTACT US Internet companies.

Also, investigating Sargent's seats as they are here in Jacksonville. As soon as my low seat comes I am going to bring the standard seat to them and perhaps have a custom seat made. Bill Mayer gets good reviews but dealing with a local company may have some benefits.
