    I installed a Starcom Advance system on my 800GS. I mounted the unit on the top of the bracket for the stock higher windscreen. I also have a Zumo 550 with XM sat radio and 2 way radio, blue tooth phone. All works great. Being able to communicate with the fellow I do long trips is great. What is good about the phone is knowing one has a call. I don't necessarily answer it but know that when I stop, perhaps I need to return the call.
