Rider to rider communication - April 8, 2015, 07:47 PM

My father and I are looking to replace our old Chatterbox devices as they are just getting buggy after having them for 10 years now. Does anyone have any recommendations? I was looking at the Sena devices (5 and 10) but they do not seem to support voice activated rider to rider communication you have to tap the multi function button on the unit and. . . . well that seems like a PITA and dangerous.

Thoughts?

Have two scala for me and the girl. My buddy has one too.

Works well has nice mic wire options. Can even have a decent phone call the few times I've tried just for giggles.

I use the Scala rider Q3, and i'm not impressed. Frequently lose the connection between me and my wife, and we're on the damn bike. then you have to push the button and wait several seconds to reconnect. Or sometimes, resync the damn things.

My buddy and I just picked up a Sena 20S dual pack, and so far the unit works great. Has an app you can use to configure group rides, really easy to use unit with tactile wheels and buttons. If you have an iphone, it 1 button push to get to siri for pretty awesome control of your phone and setting navigation while riding. In addition, it allows universal pairing so you can pair the Sena with other brands communicators.

Been happy with it so far..

And no, it straight up loses connection. Sometimes in the middle of a conversation.

Got a Sena SMH5 and SMH10. Easy to use, long battery life, streaming music-capable and great support.

Haha...NO way I am buying that Arai given I already have the Carbon Icon. LOL....stop trying to make me spend money.

So my question is how to these look on the helmet seriously? I cannot find any good photos. I really dont want some super bulky item. Is it s way to just stick the device so it doesnt hang off the bottom as it looks to hang down off the helmet?
