Nolan N-102 with NCOM Bluetooth Review

Okay, so my wife finally forced me into getting the NCOM bluetooth system for my N-102 modular helmet. At first I hated the idea of spending 300+ for it, but now that I've had some seat time with it ... man what a great idea.

First of all, I can hook up my ipod to it. Now, the speakers are so-so ... pretty crappy with bass, but it's still good enough for the music I listen to (Rush, Def Lepard, Led Zep, VH and the like). When a call come through, the music cuts out when you answer the phone (either with auto answer on the phone, or just push the button on the helmet).

I could hear fine and my wife didn't even know I was on the bike (going about 50-60 at the time). Now here's one thing you can't do ... you can't use the handsfree mode to actually make a call from your bike ... I guess it's to prevent you from doing it while riding. You have to pull over and dial from the phone (but still talk through the helmet).

Aparently you can communicate with other bluetooth devices like GPS systems and even another equivalently equiped NCOM helmet. What does suck is you can't do bike to bike com ... I guess the range is too much for the Bluetooth, however, you could plug in a 2way into the helmet.

Anyway, there's my review.

Man, I ride to get away from the phone at times. The last thing I want to do is talk on the phone while riding!

However, glad the other stuff works as well. Chatterbox has a new blue tooth bike to bike communicator out. Perhaps taht would work well with the Nolan?

The nature of my work requires that I be "reachable" at a certain times... coordinating with my wife around my daughter's various activities requires me to be reachable as well.

It's a good system overall, unobtrusive and flexible.
