FINALLY I'm hooking up with my mate tomorrow evening to try the radios out. He's also going to let me take some away I believe to play with over some time.

That should allow me to do some range tests, even if they won't be bike mounted. But, whatever range we get with them totally hand-held, that's likely to be noticeably increased when bike mounted with antennas.

just came across the discussion, great idea to help with safety, navigation etc. when riding as a group, but bear this in mind, those caught using an unlicenced or illegal radio setup on their bike or in a car would not only have a heavy fine to pay, but usually have the bike or car crushed! ofcom like to keep what they see as 'their' radio space!

yes, I have come across the Skully setup before, but it is set to work only with smartphones so each contact would cost. also how can you access more than one rider at a time? I think with voice activated numbers you can only call one at a time, of course I may well be wrong here as I am not into smartphone technology.
one final catch, I bet I would have to sell my bike to be able to afford one :shock:

Now that is damn smart technology, not so sure my head would like music, sat nag, phone call from Sara and riding all going on at once, but the voice interaction looks very good.

A 9 hour battery life too, and I expected the rear view camera to be gimmicky, but it works very well.

It does bluetooth and has a SDK (software development kit) so I reckon you'd be able to add bike to bike via the bluetooth & an interface. The other point is you can have group conversations on smartphones using cellular, so that'd probably work straight out of the box, although using cellular in Europe would be expensive on a UK contract, and likewise for anybody going outside their contract area, unless they've got a cheap roaming SIM deal.

Excellent link Pachi, better start saving, they won't be cheap.

Thanks, Mike. Looks like the helmet would be somewhere over $1,000.

I´ve applied to beta-test it, though being picked have as many chances as winning the lottery.

So the helmet is about the same price as one of them Apple smartphones! I also applied for the beta test, and the good news is they are looking around the world for beta testers, but I'd rather win the lottery given a choice, then I could just buy the helmet and a few more toys too.

Beta testing, assuming you like it, means you know what you want, but have to give it back. :)

Yes, but I´d really like to test it and see what ican actually deliver. We all know all this technology do not always turn out as advertised, and I am a firm believer in HUD for bikers, so I am quite interested in seeing how this helmet delivers.

Then, I would have to wait until the lottery comes to momma!
