Not worth it
Dealer installed this unit in my new 2016 Wing. The radar detector interface works fine but when initiating a phone call on iPhone 5, there is static. Troubleshooting revealed a defective unit, which was sent back to J&M. 3 weeks later they sent a new one so I drove back to my dealer (I live 1 and 1/2 hours away) to have the new one installed. It worked for two whole weeks and started doing the same thing.
Discussions by my dealer with John (owner) of J&M were disappointing. My dealer claims that John says it is a "voltage issue" with some Gold Wings. He says "It does this on some Wings and not on others". Bottom line is J&M is going to refund my $$ through the dealer and hopefully will re-imburse them for their labor. I personally think this is a weak excuse. If you know you have a problem with your product, get with whoever is building the damn thing for you and FIX IT.
One of these days someone besides J&M is going to design and sell a really good POWERED microphone, noise cancelling headset, and Bluetooth interface for the GL1800 and make a lot of money, because a lot of folks will be ripping out these marginal J&M products and buying a quality product.
