Hi,

Does anyone have (or have experience with) the new Chatterbox bluetooth unit?

I'd love to find something that allows:

Stereo bluetooth sound
Lets me connect my:
Treo 700p
Zumo 550
Ipod
Radar detector

all at the same time. Maybe the phone could be connected to the Zumo and the Zumo to the Chatterbox - but what about the detector? Ipod?

The Chatterbox lets one connect a phone and one other device, from what I can tell, but will it also allow wired connections?

And anyone have any idea re. the range of time I'd get from the Chatterbox when out riding? Or is there a way to occassionally plug it into the bike to have it recharge itself during the ride?

In anticipation of either purchasing a new Bandit 1250 or a Strom 1000, I'd like to figure out the electronics I'll be using.

I bought two Zumo's yesterday. Any thoughts/help on the best communication system to use?

I read about the Interride (http://www.intaride.com/xlbiketobikerange.html). It looks good but I don't know if the radio would fit under the seat of the Strom/bandit etc.

I'm also looking for the best possible radar detector possible. In my car, I use an Escort (Passport SRX) which has laser detection/jamming as well. I'd love to find something like this for a bike as it works VERY well in the car. Ideas or suggestions?

Thanks for any help or pointers on these issues.

As far as I know there is no unit on the market that will fulfil all your requirements. Most Bluetooth headsets do not produce true stereo onlt two channel mono at the moment.
Keep an eye on manufacturers like Autocom because they are supposed to be bringing out a wireless solution soon.

Thanks for your help.

Is there any wired solution that you can think of that will do what I'm looking to do - or close?

And Chatterbox is mono, not stereo?

Thanks K1W1.

Let me ask you a few things about the Autocom system.

1. Can it be wired to the bike?

2. Will it fit (hard wired) on an Strom 1000 or a Bandit 1250?

It looks like it will do everything I'd want and more.

Thanks for the recommendation.

Yes. Hardwired or battery operated. Most people hardwire

2. Will it fit (hard wired) on an Strom 1000 or a Bandit 1250?
On the Strom they are usually mounted in the tray under the seat with the helmet lead coming up between the front of the seat and the tank.
If you are going to swap from bike to bike the better option would be to put the Autocom unit and the iPod and phone in a tank bag and power the tank bag using Powerlet adapters. That way you can swap from bike to bike easily.

I own a couple of Chatter box radios, It took me a while to learn how to use them properly, once you learn they are great, I have plugged in my i-pot and they are stereo and they have a neat sound also a cell phone and it also works as well as my Nextel and I am still willing to get the new blue tooth unit but It is not possible to get it, Seems is not ready yet
