    Default What is best way/system to go to wireless communications

    I have a 2015 Spyder RT-limited and want to go to wireless communication. What items do I need to purchase to do that and what is the best brand equipment for the money? Is there any place that sells such equipment that is knowledgeable regarding what they sell and the things that various equipment/brands will provide me (a dependable consultant). Anyone's input will be appreciated, because I am looking for this equipment and prefer good advice and to be an informed buyer. Thanks!

    The subject has been discussed many times. The brands usually mentioned are Cardo, Sena, and N-com.

    Sena seems to be the most used by members here. I have tried all the brands over the years. Sena has the longest reception and the least interference noise.

    Motorcycle Dave is a vendor that will fix you up.

    Can you please be a little more specific as to what your goals are ?

    Wireless connection between your headset and the Spyder audio.
    Wireless connection between your headset and your GPS. This can be direct to the GPS or through the Spyder audio.
    Wireless intercom between you and your passenger.
    Wireless communication between you and rider on other bikes.
    Wireless communication through your cell phone direct. This can include the phone GPS and music through your phone.

    I want to communicate with passenger, and other riders by intercom. I want to receive and make calls hands-free. I want to hear directions from Spyder GPS through the headset. I want to play music from my I-pod through my headset. I also want to be able to listen to my radio through my headset.
    Thanks for the question.

    All of those are done using the SM-10 dongle and the cable from MC Dave.
