    Audio and GPS directions into the helmet

    I've been looking at bluetooth communicators and see that they go from basic to advanced. I'm riding a R1200RT and would like to bluetooth the stereo and the GPS into my helmet. I ride solo so no need for comm with a passenger, and I don't want to answer phone calls while underway. I have more than one helmet so I'd like to find a solution that doesn't require purchasing several units.

    I've spotted a product from Bose that I can use independent of what helmet I'm wearing, and would be able to use with my mobile phone when not riding. I don't know if they will work when putting on the helmet, so I'm wondering if anyone has tried them. Here's a link to the Bose haedphones.

    If anyone has already been down this road, I'm all ears.

    Don't expect quality sounds from the bluetooth on the RT. BMW in all their wisdom used BT 2, which leaves the audio you get less than ideal. Many folks have wired a better transmitter to the speakers. This gives you the advantage of volume control with the wonder wheel. I still use the speakers, but the bluetooth from the NAV is good for directions.

    We use the Cardo Packtalk, which is a nice set up, can't comment on the Bose unit. Another bluetooth unit that I like is the Bluewave Get -
