5" Chinese SatNav + Audio Technica ANC3 and ANC23 Noise Cancelling Headphones
Audio Technica ANC23 Noise Cancelling Earphones - Eureka, I bought these earphones after reading reviews on Amazon although no one
else had tried them in a motorcycle helmet, they are brilliant. The speakers look a little bulky but they are shaped to fit into the outer ear and fire
slightly forwards so the end result is a larger speaker that fits flush to the ear. There is a tiny microphone in each earpiece, it measures external
noise and the electronics send the opposite signal to the speakers to neutralise the sound. I am now able to listen to my music with much more
clarity at 80% of the previous volume level because they remove so much background noise.
The earphones fit easily inside my motorcycle helmet and the results are stunning, just incredible noise reduction. I have also fitted Comfy T-400
soft foam tips. These cut out more noise than the standard rubber grommets and the foam clings to the inside of my ear better so the ANC3’s never
feel like falling out. Overall an excellent product,
TIPS: One AAA battery is said to last 30 hours. I use a 2m coiled extension lead to connect to the SatNav,
Oct 2011 to 2014 I switched to a 5"
Chinese GPS bought from GoMallGo on
eBay. I fabricated a new GPS bracket from
perspex which is bolted to the screen and the
cockpit fairing. This places the GPS above the
instruments and nearer to my line of site, it
also shields it from the elements. The GPS is
held on with 2 thin strips of velcro. This GPS
holds the software and music on an SD card, I
ordered the 8GB version and they sent me
one with a 16GB SD card, Nice!. The GPS is
not waterproof but I have adapted a clear
plastic box from Tesco to act as a rain cover
on a wet day.
GPS is my favourite modern bike accessory and I would not like to ride far without it. I rely on my GPS for
speed camera alerts. As Top Gear state these speed cameras are cash machines for the government
nothing to do with road safety.
When it is raining really hard my £63 GPS fits inside a cheap
plastic box £1.27p from Tesco. Alternatively I could pay £550 for a
waterproof TomTom Rider or Garmin Zumo.
I can't see much but the voice directions can still be heard and my
MP3's can still be played
