Can anyone recommend a quality bike to bike intercom system that is able to pair with gps units/cell phones? I've been looking at the Chatterbox XBi 2, but the reviews are all over the place. I don't know if the negative reviews are being written by non tech savvy people? Seems to be a love it or hate device.

I just looked into Scala's headsets. Thanks for the tip. The Q4 looks to be their top of the line unit. The rider Q2 pro looks pretty sharp as well. I also found a Korean company called Sena that makes the SMH10 that they say rivals the Scala Q4. More research to be done...

Sena gets good reviews, as well. Check out the webbikeworld.com reviews; they did a comprehensive comparison a little while ago.

The only thing I don't like about my Scala G4 is how difficult it can be to initiate a phone call, though that may have more to do with limitations in my iPhone's implementation of the voice dialing over bluetooth feature.

The intercom works great and that's 90%+ of what I wanted it for...

My Sena SMH10 has been bullet-proof... I LOVE IT. I did some "unboxing" and "First Impressions" videos. You can check 'em out here...

After much research, I ended up ordering the Sena SMH-10 dual pack. I look forward to testing it's capabilities. It's a little bulkier than I want, but that jog wheel looks like a very smart design for riders.

After a little research I went with the Sena vs the Scala. I find the range a bit disappointing, but we usually ride within sight if each other anyway. The music and phone aspects are amazing. It works very well with my iPhone. I also like the fact there are only two buttons, making it less confusing for my sometimes VERY confused GF.

Put the Sena to the test all day today. It rocks! Had no problem with range because who rides a mile apart from each other? Intercom's clarity great. Some ambiance can be heard, but nothing menacing. Music volume is a bit soft, but that's probably best. Love the jog wheel most of all!

I'm not sure a mile is the "real" range, but in the twisties I tend to leave my GF behind. We just regroup afterward. Volume I'm sure Is dependent on the helmet. As long as it's not windy I can even hear the music pretty good at highway speeds. Anything under 60 mph is no problem.
