Another option for BlueTooth is the BlueAnt Bluetooth motorcycle intercom. One nice thing about it is that not only can you link to your cellphone or GPS, but you can use it for rider-to-rider or even bike-to-bike communication. It will communicate with other BlueAnt intercoms up to 490 feet apart from each other.

Unlike using FRS radios or some other commonly used frequencies, the BlueTooth will give you private conversations between intercoms without having to listen to lots of other people talk.

There is a video on it at: http://www.intercomsonline.com/BlueAnt-Bluetooth-Motorcycle-Intercom-p/093747.htm

Not technically accurate

While you can buy a bluetooth module to connect BT devices to your autocom there is currently no helmet module available. You would still need to purchase a third party BT helmet headset and there is no guarantee that this would be compatible with the autocom unit. In general to achieve full funtionality the bluetooth devices on both ends must support the Handsfree, Headset and A2DP BT profiles in order to use your cell phone and hear music and other devices.

The new Autocom has a bluetooth attachment extra to connect any bluetooth device. Also is hard wire to your bike power so dose not use batteries to run. It is wired to your helmet if you wish or can use BT helmet or adaptor. Check the website http://www.autocomamerica.com/

hello
I have experienced both products. me and my friend both were interested in buying bike-bike communication devices. I went for scala, while my friend for blueant.

And I am happy with my decision, because the voice quality of interphone f4 at high speed sucks. the quality of their conversation above 60 km is not good. and when he went to return the product, blueant were a nightmare to deal with. I would not recommend it to any one.

I looked also at BlueAnt last night. I wouldn't mind if the life was projected at 10 years, but when they said as short as two years depending on use, that was just too little for me. Having had many cell phone batteries go TU in the 2-3 year time frame, I'm not buying an intercom for that kind of money with a battery type with a 2-3 year lifespan and then have to throw out the entire unit. That is just insane in my opinion, but apparently enough people are buying them to keep the makers in business.
