Is it cumbersome adjusting the volume while riding?


Not at all. The XBi and Scala Rider both had raised easy to find buttons, but the XBi has bigger buttons which makes them even easier to find. The BTS 300 has buttons that are slightly recessed and very hard to find when wearing gloves.

Its a model TMR-BT8IP.
Designed to plug into the bottom of your iPod. It uses your iPod's battery, so it is very compact and requires no charging or battery replacements. Only one button, so its easy to use. So far its working flawlessly.

I paid about $75 at BestBuy. I see Sony has them refurbished direct from Sony for $50.

I didn't read through all of the posts here, but wanted to chime in on the Scala. I have had one now (the Team set) since early this year. I really like it. It has it's quirks, (somethimes locks up and you have to cycle power) but it's crystal clear and easy to use.
Now there's a new device that Scala has come out with that is really slick. It's a new mount for their system that has a 2mm stereo jack built in. With this, you can plug any stereo device into it; MP3 player, Sat radio, bike radio, etc. When a phone call comes in, it mutes whatever is plugged into it, so you can take the call. The best thing about it is, it is true stereo into the attached helmet speakers. The only down side is, it's not real loud. It uses the power from the device (not the Scala set) to play the music, so you use the devices volume controls. This is WAY better than the older stuff that was only mono. You can check it out on Scala's website.

It's a littel tricky to find. It's under the accessories for the Q2 and the teamset. Here's the link.

Thanks I found it. I'm glad they finally offer an MP3 connection... even if it is wired.

Too bad though about the volume problem... I was never happy with the volume level with that model when using the phone either. It was always very hard to hear the other party.

Hey Scott, you may want to try repositioning your helmet speakers. When I first mounted mine, I couldn't hear very well at all. Then I moved the speakers down a little bit, and they were WAY better. I have to turn my volume down a couple of beeps now. I still can't hear the music as much as I'd like to, but the phone is great. Erik

Erik, this thread talks about 3 different Bluetooth setups. Which do you use?
