Do you have to have a cell phone paired with it to get the traffic and weather? Maybe it has its own antenna for this purpose. Bluetooth will allow the GPS to wirelessly send commands to your Bluetooth enabled helmet or helmet mounted headset. I guess it would also send music via XM as well. Some do, not sure about yours. I know of another Mac software called "Route Buddy" that might be useful. You can download a demo version free from their site. I have the demo version. I've seen easier programs, but I've spent very little time with it. I think the full version is about $100 and it might talk with your unit. Please keep us posted with your experiences with this device. Good luck.
