Re: Intercom on a budget
Cardo Systems, Scala Rider Q2 Multiset. Works full duplex rider/pillion, connects to cell phone via bluetooth, (the other half of your cellular conversation absolutely has no clue you are not talking to them from your armchair at home, let alone going 75 mph down the slab with a crosswind). Voice dialing? I have always been able to get it to work and I think any difficulties I've had are my own and not the units. Talk time? a L O N G time! Lasted all but less than the last 30 mins of a 13 hr ride. Seems like we yakked non-stop! You can link to a 3rd set. If you have a passenger and a buddy on another bike you can talk to all of them via bluetooth. Charges up quickly, lasts a long time!
The only disappointment? The plug in port for your MP3 device is non-amplified which is both good and bad. Using the port will not run down your battery because there is no amplifier. The bad news? You can't hear it if you are going faster than 5 mph.
Installation is simple and quick. Unscrew/pop out the padding in your helmet, attach the unit to the underside rim of your helmet, run the wires, put back the liner and hit the road.
Good product, good value
