Anyone see the new Nolan helmet with integrated Bluetooth?
How much?

They have the helmets but have never installed the bluetooth.

I think the price was mid $300's.

Check out this.

Nolan (CIMA Int.) was at the International Motorcycle Show. I wasn't impressed as their Bluetooth did not do "stereo" music without a cord. Big deal!

And it is noisy as you go back to using not-so-quiet speakers over in-ear phones. Price of helmet was $300 and the full Bluetooth rig was another $250 (again, needs cable for stereo).

I have the nolan lid with a Nokia lead direct from my phone to the plug coming out of the lid. My biggest problem is not being able to increase the volume beyond the phone as this is not loud enough. When going over 50 or 60 mph on my old unfaired SV1000, I might as well have nothing plugged in. I am hoping this noise issue will be improved once I get my '03 GT in a week or two.

I am led to believe that by getting the bluetooth setup, you would be able to increase the volume considerably, but until I get that confirmed, I'm not going to splash the cash.

Also, the headset is not stereo in any setup (bluetooth or direct wired).

I have the Nolan BT setup being discussed here. Primarily used to connect up to my ZUMO 550 GPS. In this configuration the setup is very good. The music may not be in stereo, but when riding down the highway at any speed you can't really expect a lot of fidelity with the amount of wind noise. I also connect up my BT cell phone and have had conversations with people at 65mph. I think on my particular bike it would be difficult at higher speeds.
Pairing the cell phone to the GPS is important in this configuration, otherwise the commands with come from the helmet and alot of functionality is lost.
The second most common question is usually battery life for the BT unit. I have been on rides all day and have yet to have the system die on me.
If you think of any other questions I would be happy to answer them!
