Motorcycle Communication System

Cardo Systems, Inc., the world’s market leader in wireless Bluetooth® communications for motorcycle helmet headsets, announced today the availability of an upgrade Version 3.0 for its scala rider G4.

The free upgrade is available to motorcycle scala rider G4 users and provides motorcycle riders with additional opportunities to communicate on the road.

The Click-to-Link feature allows spontaneous intercom connectivity with other G4 users. This unique feature enables you to instantly initiate one-to-one intercom calls with other G4 users in the near vicinity without going through the pairing process in advance.

Initiating a Click-to-Link request will search for another Click-to-Link enabled unit in range and request a connection. If the connection is accepted and established, a temporary intercom channel is created. This connection will not change or modify your current Rider A and Rider B intercom pairings. Click-to-Link can be quickly deactivated if desired and users can choose to accept or reject any incoming Click-to-Link connection requests.

Several audio-related upgrades are found in Version 3.0, including a dedicated channel to accommodate A2DP-enabled devices such as the iPod Touch. The product now has parallel connectivity to a MP3 device and a mobile phone.

Automatic Gain Control (AGC) can now be custom set by users to adjust the audio level according to ambient noise and motorcycle speed. VOX sensitively levels are also adjustable to suit the user’s needs, whether they are low, medium, or high.

The user can adjust their AGC and VOX sensitivity via the scala rider G4’s PC software or directly through the product using the new Voice Configuration Menu.

The Voice Configuration Menu allows users customization control of their unit without needing to access software via the PC. Various settings can be configured via the menu, including; language, RDS, spoken status announcements, VOX, and AGC.

Motorcyclists who utilize the radio functionality of the scala rider G4 can now set up to six radio station presents by pressing one button. Especially useful for traveling riders, the Automatic Radio Tuning can be easily reset to the home region stations. Automatic Scan for FM radio stations is also in the upgrade, allowing easier hands free operation.

Abraham Glezerman (CEO of Cardo Systems, Inc.) says: “Our latest G4 upgrade is a testament to Cardo’s continuing leadership in innovating motorcycle communications.

“Our remarkable Click-to -Link feature enables riders to reach out to any G4 users within range, promoting the growth of a network of people that love the freedom and comradeship of motorcycle touring.

“We upgraded audio features such as Volume Per Mode, which memorizes volume levels between audio sources, so when the user switches from mobile phone to GPS, the system sets the volume based on past preferences. Our upgrades are always customer focused, as we strive to give our riders the most fun, functional and safe hands-free communication device.”
