Emily and I thought we would take a ride this morning to see if our BMW helmets would allow us to speak clearly from bike to bike when we ride? Well it worked perfectly as long as we stayed within about 150 feet or so and it direct sight of one another (Bluetooth). I am sure there are much better options out there but having come off a bike with a wired Autocomm I missed the feature. I rode the GTL and she was on the GTS so I thought I would share if there are any others of you out there who have the BMW comm system and 2 bikes. This is clearly not what they were intended to do but it works fine just the same.

My wife just got me a bluetooth communicator (a $40 amazon unit that is actually really nice!), and I had a question for all of you BT-enabled riders:

Can two different BT communicators of different brands "talk" to one another? Like, if one rider has the BMW system and another has a Chatterbox system, will they universally work like they do with most phones?

Some will pair with other brands, some won't. For obvious reasons, they need to be pretty "universal" in pairing with phones, music players and GPS units. However, there isn't quite the same incentive for pairing with competitor devices.
