    Thanks. I saw that those buttons were for the iPhone Zello app, but figured they *might* work since they're Bluetooth devices.

    The Motorola wireless PTT button you mention is probably the best bet. I just don't like the size of it or that you recharge it. I know the Pryme button I linked to uses little watch batteries, which would work better for my scenario.

    Stupid question for those who have this setup. Is there a cable or adapter that will allow the use of media to be played via the accessory port? With the bluetooth capabilities, I was thinking about using this as a bridge for my radar detector to transmit. Or will this not work as the port is only designed for ptt?

    I don’t think that will work, but haven’t tried it.

    I believe any input to the radio would be for transmit, like an external microphone. You wouldn’t hear it in your headset.

    In my setup, the detector connects indirectly via a BT link to the phone.

    Thanks. In hindsight, that's what I was thinking as well and so I doubt this would work. On that note, what setup are you running?

    Escort Max 2 via Escort Live app on iPhone 6+, U-Clear Amp Pro coms. The Escort bluetooths to the phone, eliminating at least one wire.

    but I got this figured out! I blogged about it > http://libertyfoxdefense.com/motorcycle-communications/

    basically, you use a bluetooth hub that connects to your radio. the BT hub talks to your BT intercom so you have wireless in the helmet.

    much much further distance than the suckie sena/packtalks of 200 yards :(

    looks like a total cost of around $600

    and you need a ham ticket to be legal right?

    great questions! yeah, about that much ;) but hopefully most folks already have an intercom BT inserted in their helmet and are just adding the radio.

    w/o an f cc license, you can program the radio to use FRS freqs. I believe MURS and a few other freq.

    If you are not on a repeater, not likely to get caught ;) . - I'm not giving legal advice!

    correct, you are giving il-legal advice.

    and I am totally ok with that, the air waves should be free man.
