I have spoken to people from Scala but haven't gotten a good answer to the following question. Why are companies like Scala using proprietary frequencies for rider-to-rider communications? If I am riding in group and other people have systems from Chatterbox or AutoComm you cannot talk to them nor they to each other. This industry should standardize on their channel selection, as in CB radio, so you are not limited to communications with others that have only the same brand.

I think it's a good thing. Do you really want random strangers being able to talk to you while you're riding?

If you want broad communication, there's all kinds of CB Radio type solutions. I'd rather keep my comms private.

There is nothing called a free lunch is this world. If things needed to be resolved then initiative needs a support to be sorted out.

Interesting review, I was wondering how it would compare with a Sena SMH10 bluetooth headset?
I was thinking of getting a pair for me any my girlfriend for riding. Theres lot of reviews out there, but I thought I'd ask some people to get some real opinions.

I found these headsets on this web site: BlueVision Wireless Motorcycle Bluetooth Headset and Intercom
