Thanks for responding. I find handling the phone with Siri voice control is much much easier than via the wonderwheel but I am only able to do this by taking the TFT out of the link. I am also able to use music from the phone and/or the Nav by connecting headset direct to phone rather than through TFT. For me going via TFT disables the most efficient method of control - by using voice commands.
I have a Packtalk Bold but have also given up connecting phone through the TFT.
I find that connecting this way loses me many of the Cardo voice commands and also Siri which I normally use to make calls.
I have music on the Nav 6 which I can control by the Nav screen with volume, skip track etc also working on voice commands.
I don't use the BMW Connected App as I prefer map view rather than turn by turn.
Have to say I'm at a bit of a loss to understand exactly what I'm missing by connecting this way.
Fail to understand exactly what I benefits are of connecting via the TFT?
Can anyone tell me please?

I personally wouldn't bother about using a lightly used and correctly stored helmet for in excess of 5 years.
It's your choice of course but I'm sure these recommendations have an element of Sales input as well as just safety.

I have an MRA VARIO on mine and am very happy with it.
I'm 5"11' and have a Packtalk Bold attached to the helmet.

Personally I much prefer hard panniers to soft.
Much as I hate to disagree I wouldn't go for varios myself after having them on my first ever GS many years ago.
Heavy, lacking in space and look absolutely ridiculous when extended.
Just my view - which you can take or leave.

Thanks for your reply Bizmarck.
So its just the handlebar mount you have and that fits fine with phone at right angle - no need for any spacers or extension arms that I see Quadlock offer?
I was aware of the vibration issue so would definitely go for the anti vibe mount. Not planning to use the charging mount as I thought id just run a charge lead from phone into the DIN socket next to the TFT.
Hope all's well in NZ - planning a trip there in 2022 - all being well!

Considering fitting Quadlock on my bike and asking those who have already done this exactly what brackets etc are required from Quadlock to get right angle for viewing phone. Iím guessing handlebar mount is best ?
