    Does anyone know exactly how this "embedded speaker" works? Is it connected to the unit via bluetooth, or what?

    I don't have a car kit yet, but its my understanding that its a Blue Tooth device. You have to use the outlet for power and the GPS mounts on the device similar to the M/C mount. :)

    I don't think it connects via BT. It doesn't have you go through any pairing exercises.

    The only way that the TTR2 communicates is BT! ;)

    Theres some metal contacts on the back of the rider2 that mate with the car mount. The internal circuit board on the car mount has no bluetooth on it so I'd say just a direct connection.

    The connection is not BT, it uses the metal contacts on the base plate.

    Cheers
