I upgraded to the Moto-X for the touchless controls as I commute to work and back on my motorbike and I was really unsatisfied with alternatives floating around to simulate touchless control.

Now when I am in my car and using my bluetooth headset the voice control works just fine, I can navigate, call and send quick messages no problem

But on my bike I use a Viper RSv-131 helmet which has bluetooth built in and I listen to local radio or music whilst I'm riding but my Moto-X does not respond when I cay Ok Google now or when I press the button on my helmet either I can answer incoming calls fine but thats it.

Does anyone else use a Moto-X on a motorcycle/motorbike or even a regular bicycle with bluetooth and do you have similar problems?

Thanks Etcetra, I have bluetooth headset option turned on and it works using my BT headset in the car.

My gut reaction is my car headset is a regular over the ear BT headset but my helmet is like BT stereo headphones with a microphone and so I think it's a different kind of BT but I'm not an expert.

Any advice would be welcome

Check to see which profiles are connected on each device by going into Bluetooth settings and tapping the little settings icon next to the connection.

That's unfortunate as it suggests an incompatibility issue between the two. It should certainly work using the phone profile.

Check with the helmet maker... maybe they have a firmware update available.
