Hey guys, bit of a noob when it comes to some of the tech stuff so I might be oversimplifying this - what would be the best method of running an R7 (potentially in conjunction with ALP) if you don't listen to music or have a comms system or have a phone or GPS mounted? Could you just plug a simple bluetooth dongle into the R7 audio jack and pair it up to a bluetooth speaker inside the helmet? Or do you need to go through your phone for that to work?

Cheers,
Emma

Wondering too.
I have no music etc.
I just run a wire from detector directly to speakers in my helmet.
The hazards are forgetting to unplug and damaging things, which has happened.
I keep thinking of the Bluetooth dongle thing, but everyone keeps talking about phone being part of the deal. I would skip it if I could just to be wireless.

In theory that could work. I've seen bluetooth dongles that come with two ends and headphone jacks on each. I doubt they work as well but it could be done. Alternatively you could have a completely visual alert system. Wire up a light or something on the dash. The Uniden hardwire kit comes with a remote mute button that lights up (admittedly not super bright) but it would be a simple approach to visual alerts.
