here in Florida it's illegal to have earbuds "in" your ears, if you have a headset in the helmet even if it's stereo it's ok, it's probably very similar in other places, you guys should check and make sure if that's what they mean and then get yourselves a good bluetooth stereo headset! (they rock! I use chatterbox xBi units, they work with iPhones!) at high speeds with loud pipes, I can still hear the Music! (google them up for info, you will love them!)
as far as the armband goes, I use my iPhone without the need, just setup a playlist and use bluetooth to connect to helmet, and then if phone rings I answer by hitting a button, I have no need to call out but it would do that too. I know that with my style of riding the less distractions the better so I try and keep it simple and choose a playlist for my mood when I start, then let it go. - Bluetooth, gotta love it!

10-09-2009, 02:53 AM #24I need this!
I have been stoked since getting my motorola rokr bt headset, works great under my helmet for some clean loud wireless enjoyment while on my bike, but I still had to keep my phone in my pocket. This device is my missing link, thanks for the review!

like stated earlier it sucks that it won't work with gloves. a good step towards something usable nonetheless

This looks like it would be hard to operate , and they should of called it the Predator , because it resembles the gadget the Predator used in the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie.

Its a must. I wonder what would happen if i took that onto the track....
I'd rather be on two wheels.

I'm anxious to hear from someone who has actually bought this ... what is the quality of the arm pouch. If this is crappy vinyl with even crappier vinyl "piping" around the edges I'm not too interested. If it looks of decent quality and seems like it will stand up to daily use I'd definitely order one.

I've had a handlebar mount and an in-helmet Bluetooth kit for my 3G since November of last year (and had a charge-through A2DP adapter because that predates FW3.0 w/ A2DP/AVRCP). That said, I did lose a phone to water damage when I crossed the country in December (it was in my pocket; not the handlebar mount).
Come on! Am I the only one riding a baby Ninja?!
I have a GMAX 58S helmet and it actually has pockets for helmet speakers. I installed a Parrot SK4000 Bluteooth kit. Other than the ridiculously loud whistling the helmet makes, my only problem is the damned handlebar remote's range is terrible (I have to lean toward it which is worse than just putting the buttons on the helmet).
Now, has anyone solved the glove problem? All the solutions I see either expose the thumbs or are meant for insulation, not venthilation/protection. What we need is a DIY to attach the "buttons" from, say, dotsgloves.com to any set of riding gloves. This thing absolutely should come with a solution to that too.
FWIW, the Parrot SK4000 syncs with your phonebook/contact list and adds voice dial to any phone, so it doesn't need a 3GS for voice dialing like this kit appears to require.
Anyway, I have a tank bag with a clear pocket for inserting directions. Works great and keeps 'em right in front of me.
