Parag M: While you are wearing the helmet, its attached left (only). It handshakes pretty good over BT with my iphone for music+calls. The speakers sound tinny, and are ok at best. Operation is not easy with gloves, and all-in-all its overkill. Still, Im not unhappy with it.
While riding, only your left hand is free unless youve installed cruise control.

Lucas Z: Left side only. It make sence because your left hand is relativity free. Soyoucane use your left hand to push the the buttons. Unlike your right hand that is most likely in the throttle. If you're a pillion then I guess it doesn't matter other than it might look odd. Good luck. :) Aug 9, 2013

Ronald A: I mounted mine on the left side since it seemed unwise to put on the right since that would mean taking the hand off the throttle to make any adjustments in the unit while riding.

I ride with three others, all of us using the G9, all have it mounted on the left.

James W: It's designed to go on the left (clutch) side of the helmet. That way you can articulate the controls in motion without having to take your hand off the throttle.

FWIW, my left hand's dexterity is meh, but I do not have issues using the G9.

Benjamin D: The Scala Rider G9 mounts only on the left side. It was intended to allow for operation of the device with your left hand so that you can still operate the throttle on your motorcycle, etc... with your right hand.

A shopper asked: Which microphone works better? The flexible boom or corded mic? Oct 29, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David R: Sorry for my slow response...
I use the corded mic as it works brilliantly, is well out of the wind and isn't constantly brushing my lips. On calls there is no deterioration in voice quality as reported by those i speak to on calls, and the cord tucks away in the helmets lining, so in many ways it feels built-in.
Hope this helps!

Scott F: It really depends on your application. I use the boom mic on both my half shell and my flip face. I use the corded mic on my full face. Both have equal sound quality and work equally well. I like the flat profile of the corded mic in the full face, my chin doesn't touch it like it does with the boom mics. Hope this helps. I love 'em both. Oct 30, 2013

David P: I use the boom mic I like to move it out of the way occasionally. If you cough or speak loudly to someone the voice activation kicks in. Can be annoying.

Michael L: I recently used my G9 for 12 days during a 6000-mile cross-country trip. I consistently got nine hours on a charge. I was riding solo, so I only used it for listening to GPS voice prompts and XM radio through my GPS unit. To be honest, I'm not sure how long it took to charge. I plugged it in at the end of each day and didn't bother with it until the next morning. This is a great piece of equipment that has worked flawlessly for me. Oct 10, 2013

No Idea exactly how many hours to full charge.

I can tell you that from personal experience and the stories from others, there are a lot of problems with loosing Bluetooth connections to mp3 as well as GPS.

I would not reccomend buying this unit. I'm looking off a replacement. Too many problems.

A shopper asked: I have a G9 and use it with my iPhone 5 for calls and music (Pandora) via Bluetooth. I just bought a Motorrad Navigator V GPS and paired it. Problem: when turn instructions are give it turns off my phone pairing. It needs to manually paired again to restart music. Can 2 Bluetooth devices be connected? Apr 13, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Clemens M: You'll need to connect the phone with the gps via bluetooth. The GPS is connected to your G9. When you get a phone call, it should show the caller id on the gps and is routed through the gps to the G9. Same applies to your music. You can't really play music from your phone to my knowlegde. I had to upload all my songs into the gps and play it from there. It's an awful set up but that's what we are dealing with as early adopters in a small market. Apr 15, 2014
Reply to Clemens Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Gerard D: I'm not familiar with the Motorrad Navigator V GPS but do know if you use a mobile phone and a GPS with the G9 you must pair the mobile phone directly to the GPS device. I also noticed when apple upgrades the OS system on the iPhone I had to reset pairing for the G9 and start over, section 9 of the manual. I have iPhone 5s and this fixed connection issues I had with the last update. Not sure if this will resolve your problem. Apr 16, 2014
Reply to Gerard Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Stellario D: I believe you have to connect the iPhone to the Navigator and the navigator to the Cardo. In older systems it had to be done this way. I am not sure about the new Bluetooth configurations. I have not paired up my system this way (I also have an iPhone and a Navigator IV) as the music quality degrades quite a bit. Apr 15, 2014
Reply to Stellario Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Daren T: The Scala G9 Owners manual suggests that when using BOTH a bluetooth phone and a bluetooth GPS, that you pair the phone to the GPS and then pair the GPS to the G9.

A shopper asked: can you plug ear buds into the g9 instead of using the speakers? Aug 24, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
George B: In theory you could, but I think it would be awkward. The speaker wire is not connected with a standard plug that is easily replaced, so you probably would have to cut the existing speaker wire and spice it to the ear buds. Also, since you would have to position the ear buds in your ears before putting on your helmet, you would need to leave a lot of extra wire so you could put the helmet in your lap while you use your hands to insert the ear buds.
You might be better off buying a pair of Bluetooth wireless ear buds if your primary usage will be listing to music and answering your phone.

A shopper asked: Is the Scala Rider G9 installation compatible with a Nolan N-104 helmet? I'm aware of the Nolan N-Com B4 unit (also from Revzilla), and like the way it integrates into the back of the helmet rather than a big unit sticking out on the side. However, from the reviews of the Scala Rider G9, they are generally more positive, especially for sound quality (listening to XM sat radio). Also, the SR G-9 seems to be much more generally in use which would be an advantage if I choose to ride with others and want to use the intercom.

Also, is the SR G-9 software compatible with Macintosh OS 10.x? The Nolan N-Com B4 is not. I realize this is not a real big deal, but it would be a lot more convenient for me rather than looking for a PC user for updates, and setting radio favorites.

David E: Generally helmets that offer there own communication units are not compatible with others. I have the G9 unit and use it to communicate with a group of riders. The unit is not overly large and with the wired mic vs. the boom, I feel it's very unobtrusive. I agree that Scala Rider seems to be the most popular unit on the road.

The software is compatible with Apple. I synch my unit to a MacBook. Lastly, I have used the FM and Bluetooth features to listen/stream music and it works quite well. I believe you can store 6 stations and of course stream your music library. Overall, I have been pleased with the G9.

A shopper asked: I'm considering purchasing the Cardo Scala G9 or the Sena MH10. I want to be able to hear through foam earplugs. I listened to the Cardo G2 and it wasn't loud enough through earplugs. Has anyone listened to both the G9 and the MH-10 and can tell me which one is louder, taking into account the automatic gain control of the G9? Has anyone listened to these units with good earplugs and can comment if they are loud enough? Jan 19, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The sound quality between the Cardo G9 and Sena SMH-10 is quite comparable, though the Sena might be a bit clearer. However, the Cardo G9 definitely has the upper hand on amplification - a great improvement over the Q2 or G4. The only disappointment in volume for me was the intercom feature, however, integration with your phone, or music is quite good and should be plenty loud enough even with earplugs. Jan 21, 2013

JustBusa: I wear the 33dbl blocking earplugs and the G9 goes way louder than I am comfortable with. I can hear it crystal clear even above 85mph. Tried the G2 years ago, same issue as you.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
JR651x750: Yes you do need 2 units to communicate to your passenger. They offer the 2 pack bundle on revzilla if you like that unit. The 2 biggest things I would recommend you thinking about is do u want a boom or not?(a boom is the mic that wraps around from the unit and sits in front of your mouth) And how much do u want to spend. The 2 best companies are Uclear and Scala. The biggest difference is the boom. Uclears mic is built into the speakers and scalas is not.Depending on what kind of helmet you own and your personal peference. I would suggest looking at both before u make the decision. Oct 1, 2012

IbnBatota: From the G9 user manual:

"Your scala rider G9 is compatible with all scala rider intercom models for intercom calls. In addition, it is also compatible with the Schuberth SRC-SystemTM. Intercom range with other models is limited to the distance of the device with the shorter range.
For instructions on how to pair and use your scala rider G9 with other scala rider models, please visit www.cardosystems.com/compatibility".

So, the answer to your question is "YES".

Christopher E: Yes, the Scala Rider G9 will pair with the factory Alpine bluetooth unit on a BMW K1600 GTL. I just tested my G9 with my GTL and was able to listen to the radio through the G9's speakers as opposed to the bike's speakers.

The G9 will also pair with the optional BMW Nav IV gps unit.

A shopper asked: Can the two scada rider G9 units commuicate with two G4 units? Jan 27, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Two Cardo G9 units can communicate in 4-way conversation with two G4 units.
Basically you pair the G9 set together and pair the G4 set together. Then pair 1 unit of the G9 set to 1 unit of the G4 set. Once the G9 unit is connected to the G4 unit, both will form a bridge between their other pairing. This in should establish the link between all 4. Cardo System's website has very nice tutorials on how to pair them. Honestly it's a much easier to watch their animations than understand worded directions.

Justin E: To my knowledge there is no cross brand compatibility with any Bluetooth communicators. This is a major mistake in my mind. That said it's hard enough to get 2 or more Scala units to talk to each other most of the time. Sep 13, 2013

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The Cardo G9 does not have an "input" port. Currently the Sena SMH10 would be best suited for this type of scenario, since it does have a standard head phone jack style input port on the clamp. Otherwise you can plug your satellite radio into a Sena SM10 Dual Stream Bluetooth Stereo Transmitter to create a Bluetooth signal that the G9 would connect to. May 31, 2013
