This unit is a Bluetooth unit only It does NOT have Intercom/Vox functions. Three HD Dealers that I have talked with, in person, have no idea how to operate this unit. You also have to buy the Bluetooth adapter to make your HK Radio system Bluetooth compatable. I worked with one HD eealer and tried to get it to work however we could not get it to work. M-Sonic, maker of this unit advised they are coming out with a new unit in Jan 2011 that will also be Intercom/Vox capable. Until then, I would not recommend buying this unit. Just my 2 cents worth.

How does this work with an MP3 player that does not have Bluetooth capabilities? Does it work with Blackberry phones as far as radio and Verizon GPS?

I wonder if this is compatible with a Tom Tom Rider2 GPS?

I just purchased this system from my local Harley dealer and had it installed on my full face helmet in no time. It's very easy to operate, even with gloves on. There is only three buttons on the unit. I easily paired the unit with my Nokia e71 cell phone and was listening to my favorite music. An incoming cell phone call will interrupt the music playback and you can answer by pushing one of the buttons or set it to auto answer. In a cell call test, the audio was very clear, I could hear perfectly. The caller stated that they could hear me clearly, but there was a lot of background noise which I expected.

I didn't buy it to talk on the phone for hours, that's not why I ride. I bought it so I wouldn't miss important calls. I would always tell the caller I was on the bike, hang on until I pull off the road and then talk. And yes, Guns and Roses can be distracting while riding, so I would only use it under certain riding conditions and definitely not when I was in traffic. Overall, I would rate it very highly. It's small and simple to install. It's not an intercom, its a Bluetooth adaptor only, but you can buy an accessory kit from Harley which will allow attachment to other Bluetooth 2.0 items.
