I have a 2012 Road Glide Ultra and would like to use the full functions of the radio, CB, and intercom funtions but with out the need to plug the hardwire. I do not like being hard wired to the bike. Doe sanyone know of a Blue Tooth unit that will plug into the current radio/comms unit but blue tooth to the helmets?

I am not aware of any Bluetooth adapter that is bi-directional, i.e. allows you to listen to whatever is selected on the head unit and talk on the CB. (I have been looking for 3 years.)

I'm wit' Tim here , cant find a cordless that will let you use all the things on the Ultra . I don't like being hard wired either , but the audio is much better and I also splurged and got the longer cord for the headset ..

Would it be possible to use the BT dongle in the Aux port and have the GPS blue toothed to it so the GPS audio goes through the radio?

I suppose it would be possible to use a dongle into the aux input but that is much more expensive than running a wire from the GPS to the aux input.

If you have the Harley Road Tech 660 or 665 you could use the NIM. Look up other threads about the NIM. The NIM doesn't work with the Garmin Zumo 660 or 665.

I have the Road Tech 660 as far as I know my bike does not have the NIM capabilities. I really like dont like the cable drapped across my bike while riding, and because of that I do not even use it. But if I could BT it, that would be cool.

Maybe this would work - just saw this on Iron Cross Audio

"LOSE THE CORD!

Iron Cross Audio can now modify 2006-2013 Harley radio to receive Bluetooth streaming audio.

Just pair your Bluetooth enabled device to the radio, select "AUX", and Bluetooth audio can be played over your audio system.

To reactivate the aux connector just turn off your bluetooth device.

Mod is completely internal with nothing more to connect or mount.
MOD PRICE - $140


Please Note:
This mod is Bluetooth streaming audio only and does not support control of your Bluetooth device or hands free phone use."

This is good, but still not what I am looking for. I want a dongle that provides audio OUT and microphone IN. It should plug into the jack for the headset cord.

You can add the NIM to your radio. You would probably want to have Iron Cross add a rear aux port to the radio as well. The BT mod sounds like a good way to go.

If you were to get a BT dongle to plug into the front Aux port, you'd still have it dangling. Not ideal, but it does eliminate being tethered to the bike.

So far I have found no one also that lets us use BT out from headset to cb. J&M is supposebly working on it but has turned stale from them. They are busy working on the 2014 stuff and dropped working on all the others!! I have been told to check back with them around Sept 2014 for further updates and possibly have a microphone interface unit. The guy who makes the HDBOM unit originally made a BT unit but got into legal issues so he only makes corded units now.

I don't know, but ran across this. Would this work?

Thanks for info

Thanks to all. I have not been able to find a unit that replaces the hard wire either.
