Kinda Pricey at $749epper1:epper1:epper1:epper1:I just bought the bikercom and it is awesome. rider and passenger can each bluetooth cell phones in (two) and have private conversations each plus have intercom, cb radio, gps, radar, mp3 and one other device connected at the same time. Damned if I can think of another device I would want to connect but it has the place to connect the seventh device in and the best part, wait for it , wait for it, every thing comes to the driver and passenger through blue tooth wireless. Ow yeah, rider and passenger have seperate volume controls too.....:firstplace:

Very true. Autocom has always been a premier and bullet-proof performer, and while you could search you'd be hard-pressed to find even a single complaint about them. I've had mine for four years now. It is the wired version which I prefer over the BT route. Both have their pros and cons but I give the edge to always-ready-to-go wired. However, I'm not sure how easy is is to obtain an Autocom anymore after the main US distributor, Top Gear (in NY) is no longer selling them. The nice thing is, after the pricey Baehrs, Autocoms, J&B, et al., there are now a good group of alternate choices. Just remember that largely you get what you pay for... Happy communicating and ENJOY no matter what you end up with.Best ratings tend to be for Autocom (UK) and Starcom1. I've also been looking for a while and I've never heard anyone with one of these who isn't completely satisfied (in fact they all seem to take the intercom with them when they sell their bikes). HTH.
I have the J&M integrator on my bike and my wife has the J&M CB on her bike. I dont like her system at all because the intercom is open mike all the time with no vox capability. To me it is way too annoying to constantly here the wind and background noise. If I had it to do all over again I would go with the Autocomm system on both bikes. Also the lower cords on J&M are cheap. I have been through three in three years. They dont cost much but sometimes finding a replacement on a road trip is difficult.
We've got two J&M JMCB-2003 "Handlebar Mounted CB Audio System"s. I don't know what you mean by "the intercom is open mike at all times". Nothing is open (tansmitting) all the time on our bikes. It operates off a PTT lever on the CB unit (no VOX). Something is not right with your set-up. I agree, an open mike would be very annoying - it shouldn't be that way.
