Bike to Bike Communications
Hi all. I am contemplating installation of a bike to bike communication system and finding it hard to chose between the Chatterbox X1 and the J&M CB system. Currently I have a Zumo 550 with XM radio and just about 1000 songs on an SD, using in-ear speakers for the music and Zumo instructions... My intention is to connect the Zumo audio output to the Chatterbox/J&M audio input so I will be getting all the existing audio on the new headset. Compatibility with other bikes is a non-issue as my son, who rides his own bike, will receive the same system. I realize none of you use both systems so I am asking for your experience with the system that you use. Also, if there is a 3rd system that I am not aware of, I'd love to know more about it..
My questions are:
1. What is the effective range of your system?
2. How would you rate the quality of music channeled through the system?
I will welcome any pointers you may be able to provide.
Thanks a lot.
