Hey all,
I am looking for the easiest way to get the navigation directions come out of a helmet speaker. I am not looking for a full comms set or to connect to my phone. Is there a simple device or hack to achieve this?

    Thanks...ill have a look........ I have a little bluetooth speaker that was planning to pull apart and put the speaker in the helmet...... The gps shows that the speaker is paired ok and the speaker indicates with a steady led that it is paired but no sound comes out of the speaker and the gps stops making sound so it appears it "knows" it is paired to the speaker....confused
