Can I get some feedback on what any of the other members are using for wireless communicator intercom systems? I've been reading some online reviews and am leaning toward the Scala Cardo G4. What do you think?
The Missus and I are also shopping for intercoms...(I think that she wants her yelling to be more effective! )
We're trying to balance the "wireless-ness" of the bluetooth systems against the affordability of the "wired together" setups...
So any opinions would be greatly appreciated!!
I went with the Cardo bluetooth system. It links with the Garmin for directions and phone calls. However, the music quality is pretty poor. I don't know if that is the Garmin or the Cardo system. Phone calls are good with no wind noise up to about 65MPH using a 3/4 helmet
Haven't gotten the missus on the back for actual intercom testing yet. Still too hot for her.
We have the Scala Cardo and like the system. Have not had any problem with battery life except the last time we went out. I had not paid attention the time before when we were out all day and didn't put them on the charger when we got back. Ours will run all day and then some before needing to be charged. The only thing I don't like very well is how they fit on the helmets. Our helmets have a special port for a particular type of blue tooth system (can't remember the name) that the Scala does not fit.
As far as talking while riding this system works great and is clear sounding. I have not tried all the other gizmo's or FM with it yet.
I think that after looking at the price of the G4 Bluetooth system, we're probably just going to get (for now anyway!) a simple helmet-to-helmet; plugged into each other system...
$400 for the G4? Nothing that I could EVER say would be worth $400!
Wife and I use the Cardo Q2 which is great. It is expensive or was when we bought it but no more than our Nolan helmets or riding gear. The main thing is this unit works well with no wires. I was disconcerted the first time a call from our daughter came thru via the Bluetooth connection but it does work well also.
We use the bluetooth SMH10 dual by Sena Technologies. As long as we don't get very far apart, they work fine. Once they're both turned on, one tap on the dial by either of us turns on both of our devices so we can talk, and one tap by either of us turns both of them off.
