I made such a sad purchase, but such a good deal I thought I'd share it. It is a helmet speaker communication system ... for one. For the man with no friends
So, I've decided I want to hear my GPS and music in my helmet, and I'm tired of dealing with earbuds and the wire to my phone. And my Etymotic earbuds have worn out anyways and they don't make them anymore and the ones they do make are only affordable to lottery winners and computer operating system creators.
I ordered a Sena comm system that cost more than I wanted to spend, but then I found that Cardo makes a comm unit for one, cheap. You get all the bluetooth connectivity stuff, can say "Hey Google" or "Hey Siri" and tell the phone to navigate or play music or whatever your phone is able to do. And the Cardo system is waterproof and the Sena unit isn't, so Sena is getting returned.
A Cardo Freecom 1 can be had for $100, while supplies last. This year it's being replaced by the Cardo Freecom 1+, so the one I bought is on sale. The 1+ is just the 1 with the added ability to communicate with a passenger on your bike, but no other feature or quality updates. I don't carry a passenger, so the 1 is perfect.
I haven't used it much, but so far it works great. Can hear it fine, voice commands work, I can call my wife from the road and she can hear me (I know, people have opinions about that).
Anyways, that is my recommendation.
