I had the intaride system, but changed to the autocom. The intaride system was good but difficult to obtain spares for, for example extension leads for the helmet kits. The autocom was cheaper, can get more accessories for, and my personal opinion is that it sounded better.

Hi,

I use the Intaride system and I can't fault it.

I've never had a problem obtaining spares, they've always been very helpful when I've rung up or emailed and stuff arrives in a couple of days.

The audio quality is excellent and no-one realises I'm on the bike when I answer my mobile while riding....which can be quite handy when I'm supposed to be at work!!!

It does all the usual things like automatic music muting when a call comes in, you can use vox or PTT for the transceivers...really it does avarything I need.

I have mine set up with a transceiver for bike to bike comms and and other uses and it works really well and the music quality (stereo on the intaride) from my mp3 player is great. I've used it on quite a number of tours and it's never given me any problems.

I would recommend it...though I've never tried the Autocom or the Starcom. so I can't give you a comparitive opinion.

Good luck making your mind up...it took me a while, but I went to see the Intaride guys when I was looking for an intercom and they were very helpful, eager to implement a few small changes to accomodate my radio needs and were quite happy to provide all the technical information that I wanted.

Ride safe!

Ken... :-D

I have had both the Autocom and Intaride RP1. For my money the RP1 is far better than the Autocom. Under half the price and far more reliable.

I never could get on with the VOX settings on the Autocom and found myself always stopping and adjusting it. I also found the Autocom Din Leads very susceptible to problems with water. I ride my bike in all weathers and all though the RP1 is better that the Autocom it too has problems with water getting into the sockets. On the Autocom the Din sockets were rusty when I got rid of it.

The RP1 also fits very nicely into the noise fairing of the Tiger, fitting above the lights. i have some pictures somewhere at home.

I have always found the support at Intaride to be very good.

Negatives about the RP1 are I do not like the curley leads, a real pain to run under the tank.

Quality is not bad. I use with my Garmin I3 GPS and mobile phone. MP3 player also works well too.

Cheers

Paul

Just a follow up Note. Intaride no longer do the RP1, it was discontinued this Christmas. It has been replaced with the EVO model which is smaller in size has VOX control and can be upgrade for Bluetooth.

See here for details - http://www.intaride.com/evo_details.html

This is an intercon that can be used as Bluetooth or cabled or a combination of the two. Seems an ideal set up as I have always been worried about Bluetooth and all those battery's.

I plan to use mine with a HP PDA 6910 which is a GPS, Phone and MP3 player in one and bluetooth.

I'll post an update once I have it installed.

And there is also a Wireless Headset kit due out soon.

This connects the Intercom to the Headset and uses their own wireless connectivity instead of Bluetooth. This should last in the region of several days between charges instead of several hours. This will be great when you are touring/camping and can't always get to re-charge your head set.

(the Bluetooth connectivity to the actual intercom is still there).
