It works!
Thank you that is great to know and if my route is really complex I could always download the next portion of the trip at the lunch break.

Thank you, I decided after getting advise on this forum to go corded, that way I don't have to worry about charging. Thanks...now just do decide on the Yamaha J&M or the Harley which is much cheaper and works on a half helmet...but I looked up the J&M website and I see they have a half helmet alternative.

That's funny. I never understood why people would want a cord. I have been a pilot since 1965 and have many stories of why the cord is a PITA. I have had many of the same problems on a motorcycle.

1974 Kawasaki Z1 (only God knows)

I go both ways. a cord is very nice, just depends on if you can get it routed and strapped but still loose enough to work for you. Cordless is a huge advantage except the ovious issues with it, interference, battery power/life.
My wife doesn't know I'm on my bike most of the time, doing 80mph with my sena headset. I don't run a windshield or anything. Just make sure you update your firmware.
