Nolan N-Com E-Box Intercom BT3 Kit

The BlueTooth 3 Kit includes the E-Box, the battery, the battery charger, and the seal. It is used for wireless connection from helmet to helmet, or between a helmet and other Bluetooth equiped devices, such as a phone, GPS, etc. The BlueTooth 3 is stereo for music (when used with the Basic Kit 2) and allows the rider to control his music source from the helmet (skip song, mute, etc). Thanks to its multiple circuits, it also allows two helmets to be paired together for rider to passenger communication and for a cellular phone to be paired to each helmet at the same time. BlueTooth 3 works from bike to bike, with a distance of 500 meters. This distance will vary with the environments, becoming longer on flat, straight, empty roads, and becoming shorter on mountain roads, in cities and on busy roads. 

BlueTooth Kit3 is the newest version of the Ncom BlueTooth E-Box, to be used with the current Basic Kit2. It offers the same integration level as previous versions plus:

  • Rider to passenger communication via BlueTooth
  • Bike to bike communication between two BlueTooth B3 systems up to a distance of 550 yards
  • FM Radio with RDS function (to stay tuned to the same radio station for the entire ride), with 6 pre-settings for your favorite radio stations
  • Other devices can be connected to the B3: Music players and other devices using a standard headphone jack can be connected via a wire and other BlueTooth enabled devices such as a cell-phone and a GPS can be paired through the BlueTooth connection
  • Firmware updates as well as presetting of the radio stations, volume controls, etc. can be done by connecting to a computer via the jack-to-USB cable (included) with the N-Com Wizard program

WOW WHAT A SYSTEM
I have a Nolan N43 Trilogy helmet and installed this item in the helmet. I know the system seems confusing on what you should purchase and what you should not purchase. If you are using it lets say for an Iphone or something similar make sure you get the patch cord also and make sure it is the stereo cord you purchase. The iphone has blue tooth but you can not use all the features to play music and use imaps and so on you need the patch cord. Only the phone part works with the blue tooth. The sound is just awesome and easy to install both systems the headset and blue tooth nothing hard about it and once you play with it you will find it so easy to use. I charged system and then let it run out of battery power and it took a full 12 hours of play time. Amazing and about 3 hours recharge time.

Totally an amazing system that you can upgrade if you want later on.

Quirky interface but functions well
My wife and I had been using the Cardo Scalarider Q2 Multiset for years and it worked very well. Turn it on and we were connected right away. My wife wanted a new helmet and the Nolan N43E had the features she wanted so I went ahead and bought a matching helmet and the N-com systems for both. First impressions were not positive as you have to go through way to many steps to establish bike-to-bike connectivity. Turn the unit on, switch it to FM Radio mode, switch it to Bike-to-Bike mode, call the other rider, they have to answer. Pitiful interface. Once the call is established the system performs as expected in the bike-to-bike mode. The integration into the helmet is nice as you don't have an external unit dangling below the helmet line.

For the two-up riders or for basic phone and gps integration, this system is fine. The interface for the bike-to-bike mode needs A LOT of work. I wouldn't necessarily recommend this system for the bike-to-bike scenario.

Great product, as good as any other
Don't let the bang for the buck fool you, helmet radios are just expensive. I recommend using YouTube videos for the install. Make sure to download the latest instructions instead of what's in the box. You need the Basic Kit 2 as well as the BT3 for the N43e helmet. A change in the BT3 kit is the gasket comes pre-installed so you can ignore the fact that Basic Kit 2 does not have one in the box even though it's mentioned in the instructions. Sound is loud and clear but lacking in bass. Phone calls are clear and it does a great job of filtering out road noise. It's amazing how many control options are available considering it only has 3 buttons. Bluetooth syncing was easy. Synced with an HTC One. All 3 family members have the same helmet so we will be picking up a couple more. When we get the helmets synced to each other we'll post more info.

Overall works with R1200RT
I wanted to be able to use my bluetooth capability in my R1200RT and with my Rider 2 GPS. The installation was fairly easy and it took only a couple of tries to get the device to link to the bike and gps. The speakers are a little loud for me and sound quality is not great but it works. Overall, I am happy with the product and it integrates with my helmet.

Great Sound and Good Instructions
So, the install on this was the only weird part at first. Then I realized I wasn't interpreting the instructions correctly on how to install the battery. Once I figured that out it was a breeze. Getting the little wire for the mic to plug in was a little hard with my sausage fingers but doable. The easy of use of the Bluetooth is so easy and intuitive that it is easy to pick up after you read the instructions. Read the instructions. The preset radio station option is great when your riding local and commuting. The radio search option works flawless even though it only goes in one direction. If you miss a station you have to go all the way through again. Def. download the software for your computer to upgrade your Bluetooth and to set your radio stations. The update gives you 4 rider intercom connections vs the 2 the product states. I haven't used this yet but the phone calls via Bluetooth are second to none. At 65mph in the rain on my dual sport I could have clear two way conversation with people and they didn't believe I was on a bike.

A good product with good interface. There was no problems paring the device and works well independently of the application
The Bluetooth works great. The only complaint is that the phone application only works with android phones and not Apple.

Good product but pricey and not trivial to install
I bought the BT3 kit because I have a Nolan Trilogy N-43 helmet that is designed to accept the BT3 e-box. The BT3 is pricey and costs more than other complete stand-alone bluetooth headsets, but I wanted an integrated system with everything contained inside the helmet. The physical installation is easy because the e-box just snaps in place and, with the basic com kit already installed, it is plug and play. However, the unit required a firmware update that first required following a complicated procedure for installing device drivers on your PC. Pairing it with my smartphone was easy, and the N-Com android app that you can use to control the e-box is cool. However, some functions, like setting the radio presets, are not intuitively obvious and you have to read the user guide carefully. The e-box has a stereo input jack for connecting sound devices directly, but I could not get it to work. After a lot of frustration, I sent an e-mail to N-Com's technical support center. I received a phone call shortly from a tech who explained that one has to press and hold the up-volume button for a few seconds to turn on the direct connection. This is nowhere in the manual. So, good technical support, but the manual is not complete. The e-box has a lot of bells and whistles, so expect an extended learning curve to learn how to use them all. Sound quality and the form factor are excellent.

I was wondering if the unit (n-Com BT3) is water proof or water resistant.
A shopper on Jan 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: We contacted Nolan with your question and they did confirm that this unit is waterproof.
How do you turn on the bluetooth kit 3? Been pressing the On Pad and still won't work.
A shopper on Jul 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: press and hold the "on" button for at least 2 seconds. When it comes on you will see the LEDs light up and hear a beep in the headphones.

To turn off, press and hold for 4 seconds.
I have a BMW K1600GT, I have the nolan N90 so which intercom is compatible with all these bike´s functions, gps, stereo, cell phone? only for one rider, no need for my copilot talking to me on the bike TOO! haha. Thanks
A shopper on Mar 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Works really well with the gps. paired phone to gps first and then headset to gps. Trouble with staying paired to stereo on the k16. I have found if it makes connection to stereo on the bike first, then if gps is powered up, it works okay. Unfortunetly the stock gps mount in the bike will not let you power it of or on by itself. drive by someone using thier bluetooth and the stereo starts cutting out. I have a seperate mount for my 660 so I can power it on after the bike is running. same goes for the sena. I have both because of the intercom on the Sena, but I think the N-com is better with the gps-phone.
I have a Nolan N90 helmet I purchased from you a while ago. I want to add the Bluetooth headset system and I am confused which items I should buy. I want to be able to listen to high quality music and answer the phone if needed. It looks like my question may have been answered below. Can you confirm that I will need one N-Com Basic Kit 2, and one N-Com E-Box Intercom BT3 Kit? Will the BT3 give me the best music sound? Thanks,
Dave
A shopper on Feb 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that is what you need. The sound quality is good, but not great, however, it's better than nothing. I have found that when I ride around New York City, the Bluetooth will drop out once in awhile if I'm listening to music from my iPhone. It can also be confusing to learn how to navigate the settings, specifically, if you pair it to another helmut. I ride a BMW 1200 GSA and at highway speeds, the sound isn't that good due to wind noise, but it does work great if you have a passenger on the back and what to tak. My wife and I tend to use it just to talk rather than listening to music.

When I have the funds, I want to upgrade to a Schuberth C3. I haven't tried one yet, but something tells me the sound will be better.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase, just have realistic expectations.

Hope this helps.

If you already have the N-Com B1 SDS kit installed, will the BT3 (or BT3+) E-Box work with the installed headset?

It would be nice to be able to upgrade by just swapping out the B1 e-box and replace it with the BT3 ... I'm not sure I am ready upgrade if I have to buy a whole new rig.
A shopper on Apr 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That I exactly what I was hoping to hear.

Thanks
i just purchased the b3 kit ,i would like to know, how do u know its charged and ready to use for the first time?
A shopper on Jul 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No it need to be charged for 10 hours.
Hi my wife has a Nolan 102 and I wish to fit a Nolan N- Com E Box Bluetooth Kit 3 will this work ? I have a Nolan 104 Evo will they be compatable?
A shopper on May 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If the N102 can take the Nolan Basic Kit - which is needed as a base onto which you attach communication modules - then the BT3 will work with it, and it will be compatible with your communicator. I have a BT3 on my N103 and I use it to connect to my wife's BT2 and my buddy's B4 without any hiccups. Hope that helps.
Is this the latest version, the BT3+ SDS Bluetooth Ebox?
A S on Mar 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: B5 is the latest. But only compatible with N104 it seems.
Is this the latest version BT3+ SDS Bluetooth Ebox?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: To my knowledge, yes it is.
I found the unit to be easy to install with very nice sound. The FM get a little shaky depending on location but on a solid signal, very nice, clear reception. Plug in an IPOD, portable satellite or cell phone and the sound is very good.
Have(2) N90S helmets with Basic 2 kits and wired intercom. What is needed to convert to Bluetooth?
A shopper on Aug 27, 2012
BEST ANSWER: f you would like to have Bluetooth in a Nolan helmet, you would need to have one N-Com Basic Kit 2, and one N-Com E-Box Intercom BT3 Kit per helmet. Thus you need two of each, if you have two helmets.

Also, be sure to check out our Nolan N-COM Buyers Guide if you would like to see what kind of other options would be available via Nolan:
