I've been using the Starcom Bluetooth interface since last year and like it. Similar device, plugs into the phone port on the intercom, pair it up with your phone and no more cables. I can now keep my phone in my pocket or topcase.

Hari,

Did you ever get this bluetooth connector? Did it work for you?

Thanks,
Brian

BMW System 5 Helmet and Blue Tooth

I'm not sure if this product works with the System 5 helmet, but my local BMW dealer advises me that there has been a BMW warning re the Blue Tooth helmet add on leaking water. I'm a bit concerned, as I want to upgrade my System 5 helmet to take the Blue Tooth fitout.
I wonder if anyone on the list is actually using the System 5 helmet from BMW fitted with the upgrade?

Best wishes all.

Unfortunately the System V is not available in the US. Otherwise I would own one.

I have a System 5 with the WCS-1 bluetooth module. It failed in very heavy rain in June. The delear was not allowed to replace it by BMW. Rather I had to wait three weeks for BMW to send a kit to the dealer to repair it. It was repaired in August and last weekend it failed again in heavy rain. According to the the dealer BMW has temporarily withdrawn the bluetooth option to deal with the problem. They are expecting to ship modified WCS-1 helmets later this month.

Thanks, I think I'm going to use this guy in the wife's starcom, much cheaper than theirs.

My wife & I have BMW System 5 with bluetooth. They are currently back with the dealer again. They have not worked properly since we bought them more than 1 year ago. They have been worked on by the dealer several times, with new motherboards and even complete replacement units. Not happy with them at all, and if they are not fixed properly this time, we will be looking for our money back.

Regards, Brian

Hi Hari!

I have the same problem now that I moved the wiring from directly to the battery to the powerlet plug. I had to move it to a switched circuit because unlike the intercom the bluephone does not power down when the headsets are unplugged.

I did notice that the interference did go away above 2500 rpm.

Ken,
A lot of people here complain about it. It is not waterproof and leaks after the first rain. Also is not so easy to pair:-((

I've just received my third System 5 with bluetooth. This one seems to work even after heavy rain so I think they have got it right now!

It is a serious backward movement to the quality of baehr, is no a solution?
Hari
