  1. Caller ID Error on 2018 Gold Wing Display

    2018 Goldwing Board
    Wondering if anyone has/is experiencing the apparent Caller ID software bug I am experiencing on my 2018 Gold Wing and if so, any solution. I connect my iPhone 8Plus via USB to listen to music as the Bluetooth latency while making selections is ridiculously long. I don't use the phone while...

    2018 DCT non tour model with just over 1,000 miles. I keep my iPhone X in my jacket pocket and stream Amazon music to the bike speakers using Verizon cell service.

  4. May have made another navigation mistake

    GL1800 Tech Board
    Purchased a Garmin 396 for a 06 GW. When I went to mount it there are only 2 wires to the mounting cradle, charging only. Is there a way to connect the gps unit to the factory wired headset(s). From what I can tell and read the 396 is bluetooth only. Will I have to get the 595 to be able to...
  5. Current recommendations for bluetooth headsets?

    Electronic motorcycle devices
    I've decided that my ancient corded headsets are getting replaced. I've pretty much decided that I want to go cordless because most of the problems I've experienced over the years has to do with cords getting in the way and getting damaged. I've started researching bluetooth headsets, but I...

  7. Intercom headset choice

    General MC Message Board
    I am fairly new to Goldwings and I love my bike. It is a 2012. However, the Honda factory headsets suck, I got them free. An upgrade will have to take place over the winter but deciding which solution is better is difficult. I don’t have a CB now, but may in the future, so I am taking that...
  8. Switch from wired to Sena advice

    General MC Message Board
    I've got a 2010 GL1800 level three. Shortly after getting the bike five years ago I realized the built-in GPS was good but my Zumo 550 was better. So, using a third-party harness, I was able to integrate the Zumo into the bike's audio system from the Zumo's "audio out" and "microphone in"...
  9. Sound 'quality' at highway speeds

    Electronic motorcycle devices
    We've got a 2003 Goldwing with stock sound system. We bought a new helmet wired set for our helmets to plug in. Works just fine toodling around town, but the 'quality' decreases once we get up to highway speeds (50+ mph). The helmets (3/4 type with faceshields that rotate up) are great for...
  10. Downside of using Chatterbox?

    Electronic motorcycle devices
    Are there MAJOR drawbacks using the Chatterbox bluetooth communicator that you know of? I bought a beautiful HJC IS-Max BT modular helmet from a local fellow because it FIT me (was reasonably priced) AND was designed with a recessed cavity on the side for a clean bluetooth through-the-shell...

  12. Garmin 665 and Iphone 4

    Electronic motorcycle devices

  13. Using LG Bluetooth Headphones on my Goldwing

    Electronic motorcycle devices
    I purchased a set of LG HBS-700 Bluetooth head sets. I ride alone, so the fact they don't actually hook into your on-board audio selections is not an issue. These have a band that fits around your neck. The two ear buds are attached by wires and fit nicely up through your helmet and into your...
  14. bluetooth headset???

    Electronic motorcycle devices
    I have a 2003 Goldwing that I bought used about 18 months ago. It did not come with any headsets or cords to use with the CB. I could buy a J&M headset for not much money that would let me use the CB and the stereo. I was also considering a bluetooth headset because I could use that with my...

  19. Zumo J&M Bluetooth Problem

    Electronic motorcycle devices
    I have a ZUMO 550 integrated into my bike using the J&M components. The problem I have is that when I try to make a call, the person that I'm talking to says it sounds like I'm muffled or in a barrel. They can't understand me at all. This used to work fairly well but it's sure flaky now. I think...

    I couldn't find any reviews of this item. I expect my next GPS will have bluetooth(similar to zumo 660...waiting for one that takes voice commands) and my iphone bluetooth works great in the car, so I am thinking this would tie nicely to the wings intercom system. Thinking of using J&M elite...
