Wired headsets: You unplug them when you get off the bike.
Wireless headset: you plug them IN when you get off the bike (for battery recharge).

Good Point!...I don't have Wireless...but wish I did. My reason is not having the wires hanging off of our helmets...even after you unplug you still have the upper wire attached...sure would make us both happy... :D

What is the range of Bluetooth? Enough to get into the gas station and pay for the gas and Twinkies? Good enough to park in a picnic area and wear your helmet to listen to tunes or the news at the picnic table?

Neil;

Not sure of the legal issues regarding transmission distance, but I have
been as far as 100 feet or so away on a call. I was not in a building, but
a parking lot with the phone in the wing.

Do keep in mind that using Bluetooth requires more power from the unit
and the batteries will not last as long. Mine is hard-wired into the wing for
power, so I leave it on the bike, and use my earpiece.

The best advantage for me in using the 2820 is I can take and make phone calls without handling my phone. I travel a lot for work and when not flying enable me to take my Wing without having to stop to return calls or make calls, and vireeing the phone book from the GPS. Also the caller ID function and call waiting is visible on the GPS screen. This helps me avoid losing time.

Due to not being able to hear XM radio through bluetooth, I have ordered your complete set up for the times I do not expect to use the cell phone a lot. Waiting for my vendor to receive it.

Bluetooth headset was not stereo, and certainly was not HiFi.

Had about 4 hours of operation out of it, not good enough for a good ride.

The Mic was just too darn sensitive to wind noise, overloaded the CB mic circuit at 20mph.

The charging cradle I had in the right pocket started getting dirty and would not contact the headset sometimes when I put it in there to charge.

I am now using EdSets :oops:
