Well people I hope you are all keeping safe, but enjoying the little bit of Sunshine we had this weekend. If anyone is interested, I did get the ridermount gadget working. When I first opened the package I was a little disappointed as it seemed a lot of faffing
just to hear the satnav instructions. In the box is an amplifier unit with the mic which you need to attach to the satnav, this needs its own power supply so yet another power supply to be fitted to the bike. After that you then need to fit the Bluetooth unit into the back of the satnav holder, this is rechargeable battery operated, yet another cable hanging out of the satnav case. Once fitted you then get the Bluetooth unit talking to your headset, this bit is easy. The amplifier is connected to the Bluetooth unit via wire connection. Tried it out today and I must say the sound quality and volume is great and the unit does do what it says on the tin. So yes it works really well and it's cheaper than buying a bike satnav, whether its worth the hassle of fitting and faffing, only the individual can decide.
If it has some longevity then it might be worth keeping and moving to another bike if ever I feel like replacing the V. You can just buy the amplifier bit and connect it into your helmet via any set of earphones, however having a wire hanging out of my helmet connected to the satnav would be horrendous as far as I am concerned. Safe riding and thanks for reading.
