  • Bluetooth issue

    I was kicking the tires again today on the 2018 Goldwing. Was on the showroom floor. I asked the sales guy if I could attempt to pair my Pixel 2 XL smartphone to a demo. I'm currently not using an iPhone so I wanted to see what functionality I would have simply pairing the phone to the bike. Turned it on. Scrolled to the right screen. Hit "Inquiry." Simply would not pair. Would not even show up on my phone as an available device. Next to the demo were two other brand new Goldwings. Those bikes quickly paired to my phone with no problem. Two separate sales guys and one guy from the parts department came out and could not get the first bike to pair up with my phone. They could do so with the two other bikes. The demo happened to be the bike I was looking leaning toward. Go figure. Not confidence inspiring.

    If I get a Bluetooth headset, can I talk on the cb to my buddy on his wired J&M headset.

      If you can transmit on the CB, your buddy's connectivity is moot. Either you're transmitting or not. I would think that the question is (and may get more responses), Can I talk on the CB with a Bluetooth headset?

        The other two were 2018's as well?

          I use the J&M BT -03 bluetooth headset with the Honda CB with no problems. You use the push to talk switch to transmit. I did have a problem with bluetooth losing connection. I deleted rider connection and use passenger's connection. No more dropping out.

            Yes all bikes were 2018 models.

              Sounds like the dealer has a bike with an issue that he should repair before selling.
