Just wondering if any of you guys are going to fit the waterproof GPS units for city commuting to your new 125s?

TOM TOM makes one called the rider pro, looks good would be a nice touch to the Digital dash :D

I just use my phone, personally. Set my destination before I leave, have the directions spoken through my helmet as I ride. Having one of these ones stuck to my handlebars seems like a needless distraction.

I prefer to not have the distraction, but when I need it I use the TomTom app for iPhone or iPad in the map pocket on my tank bag (or in a ziploc bag also if I am expecting rain)

The Garmin Nuvi is really nice but I have never needed a GPS enough to want to mount one on my handlebars.

I used to use the suction cup mount on my 250R with the windshield. A regular GPS ($99) with a ziploc bag is a lot better IMO than a $500 wate

Scala Rider aftermarket bluetooth works great. No need to buy a helmet with it built in.

I'm thinking about getting the G9 too primarily for listening to fm radio and music through my iphone but with a $125 price tag i'm thinking it may be overkill....still though, the unit looks sweet.

Never cheap on out hetlmet bluetooth.

You can get one for under $100 but it will be terrible. Poor sound quality, poor interface/controls.

Scala's are worth the price premium.
