The bluetooth helmets have never worked properly. Sometimes they lose the link completely, sometimes one can hear but the other one can't. BMW are trying their best to sort them out. They have replaced motherboards, and even the whole system but still not fixed. We have given our dealer the helmets back and asked them to send them back to Germany to be properly tested. I really hope they can fix them. We don't want to have to take out money back and buy elsewhere. I don't know if this is just our helmets, or if it is a general fault. If anyone can build a good system it should be BMW. Lets hope so.easyman05 said:What kind of problem do you have with bluetooth on your helmets? Here we had some issues with them after the rain - the helmet module is not waterproof and it could not be cured.
I paid the same price for Nav III in London. Nice thing but useless for me in Russia.
Only prob with that is, I believe it's a mono BT device primarily intended for telephones, just like the one I use with my Starcom. I have paired mine up with my 2820 with less than stellar results and sound quality.eljeffe said:You can add the Autocom Bluetooth module to your system. I think the MSRP on it was $265
I know that both Autocom and Starcom are pushing hard for stereo BT plus helmet headsets. I'm holding out for the whole enchilada.Bluetooth® receiver for vehicle installation integrates use of Bluetooth®-ebabled cellular phone to Autocom system for wireless cellular phone connections. Requires Bluetooth® Miodule Interface (shown in photo but sold separately) to complete the Bluetooth® upgrade.
I'm doing that now with my Starcom1. I have a BT module connected to the phone jack on the intercom and leave my phone in my top case, works like a champ. The other advantage is that I get a ring indicator now, since when you hook a phone directly up to an intercom with the phone in hands free mode, it's up to the phone to provide a ring indicator in the speaker, and my Motorola doesn't. Directly connected, I would be going down the road, listening to my tunes or traffic and all of a sudden, someone is talking to me, very unnerving.MarkMGT said:What I want to do is add a bluetooth module to my Autocom so that my existing mic and headset can be used. I want the Autocom to be the bluetooth headset, but pipe everything to my helmet via the standard Autocom cables.
Wonder if that is possible.
The Nav 3 is an excellent GPS.. very happy with it.
First, Callerid is a function of your phone being on the good guy list for the 2820. My 1.5 yr old Motorola V710 works with it BT and does everything but callerid. Check the Garmin website for a list of the completely compatible phones.tfkelly said:What BT module are you using? Does it interface with the 2820 so you can see who's calling and dial out from the 2820?
well...MarkMGT said:I have one.. it is installed on the GT. I'll post a picture later.
I will give a review once I have had some time. I can tell you right now it is MUCH nicer than the Navigator II.
The screen is just gorgeous.
