This product functions as described I have a GPS on my bike and my iPhone. Both connect to the Scala Rider as indicated in the write up. While listening to music the GPS cuts in with turn instructions and then goes back to the music. I don't have any problems with sound quality. I tried to attach a pair or headphones, which worked fine, but my ears got sore so I switched to the speakers. July 21, 2014
Hope Sena will be better Mounted on the helmet system constantly clings to the side of trunk (Goldwing). I can't say that "my hands grow out of wrong place" and I installed base not properly, but today the base broke away from the helmet. There is another clip-on base with a screw but it not compateble to my helmets, so, I can accept that it is most likely due to the nature of helmets geometry (Nolan-n43) on my other helmets - Nolan-n104 the base hangs on better. The biggest disappointment is after ONLY FOUR HOURS of work a brand new device DIED. It is showing a dim red light and not power on at all. I've read some forums and came to the conclusion that it is quiet often issue. July 15, 2014
Cut the cord already! We took this for an extended trip. I like this unit. With the web you can customize many settings. It does a lot right but some of the not so good. Battery life was good enough for us. Our longest day was 11 hours. We didn't turn it off during breaks. We only took one charger with us and was able to get them both charged up overnight. Audio from the BMW GTL only paired to one headset. Wonder wheel volume has no effect. Volume is controlled with plus/minus buttons. Sirius radio is bad. Bad enough not to want to bother with it. FM is ok Memory stick is ok Audio from the GPS is great if paired separately. I have not tried MP3 from the GPS yet maybe that's better than the bike's audio. Sometimes it gets a little too loud. Yes the Cardo G9x can pair two music input devices on separate bluetooth channels. I have the GPS set on channel one and the bike's audio on the second channel. My phone is paired via the GPS. Intercom is very good with excellent noise reduction. But at Texas highway speeds my wife had trouble hearing me but I could hear her fine. It might be that I need a better windshield. I might try a more aggressive auto volume adjustment setting on her unit. [Edit] changing the automatic volume gain control did resolve this. Phone via the GPS connection works great even at high speeds and has priority over music or intercom. No wind noise is transmitted though the phone. Using the VOX. It is set at medium as default. Gretchen had problems activating it so I made it easier to activate but then at speeds over 70 the wind would activate it. Not a problem if you just want intercom, but the intercom wouldn't turn off so you could get the music. Again improving the GTLs wind protection might be an option. Or just turn off the VOX and use the button. [Edit] changing the VOX senitivity back did resolve this. There is no blending of audio sources like being able to hear music while in intercom mode. Looking forward to testing other vendor unit soon to be released. Music share works but after interrupted by an intercom session your music will come back but you have to re share it to the second set. Its not smart enough to go back to the way you had it. Simple enough to reestablish but grows annoying after a while. Its probably better just to set up 2 separate audio sources for each headset. Twice during the trip I had to turn off my unit and back on again (like CTL-ALT-DELETE). It just acted very strange with a cyber echo. Not sure what that was all about but I got the impression like its CPU was just overloaded. Looking forward to testing other vendor multi-CPU unit. Still we love not having to deal with cords.

Phone calls not as clear as the older Q2 I have been a Cardo user/customer for over 7 years and my latest set (Scala Rider Q2) dead unfortunately last week. So I purchased the new G9x Powerset. Installation and configuration was very simple and easy to do. My main uses of the unit was for telephone calls and music from my XM Sirius Zumo 665. Huge difference in sound quality with the larger speakers and higher volume and in full Stereo, bravo! The FM reception is not that good and disappointing as my complex tuner on the old Q2 had better reception. The sound quality for phone calls is not even close to the quality of the Q2. Before nobody could tell I was on the bike now everybody does!!! Please fix that issue... May 19, 2014
All around great product Can't believe I waited this long! Works great takes a little to get used to the buttons what to push for what function but after that just a fine piece. It's great not having to not yell at stop lights & the ease of letting my fellow riders aware of danger just by speaking through the mic. April 28, 2014
Does what it is designed to do - communicate My riding buddy and I bought this for our upcoming trip to Canada. Last year we were using our Autocom units - which were working as usual when his radio died an untimely death. So since a new radio was the cost of the Cardo units - we decided to buy the G9x instead. So far all we have done is test the features out, but so far they are exceeding expectations. Plus customer support at Cardo has been very responsive answering the few question that have arisen. April 7, 2014
Brilliant gadget- A must have I was not sure whether the G9x would be such an excellent all in one system. It works superbly and I would highly recommend it. Works well with iPhone 5 for calls and inbuilt GPS. Apple needs to improve it GPS sat nav systems though! The intercom is also very clear. This review is based on the use of the G9x on Shoei GT air helmet. Safe riding! March 17, 2014
Great Product. Fantastic Clarity. Easy to Use. The G9x is one of the best products I've ever bought. It takes a little work to get it installed, but well worth the hour or so of effort. I put one of them in my Shoei RF-1200, and the other one went in my wife's Icon Airmada. The RF-1200 has preformed holes to put the speakers, but the Icon did not. Surprisingly they were both just as easy to install. There are a few different options to install the things, and these guys seems to have thought of every possible situation. So don't worry about fitment. You can use the boom mic, or stick a little mic on the front of your fullface helmet via velcro. The only thing that doesn't work too well is the FM radio. I installed mine exactly as the manufacturer said, and the reception still blows. I'm still giving this thing 5 stars though, because it exceeded my expectations by a long way. The two-way is clear and problem free, the bluetooth is the best call quality I've ever had for any kind of bluetooth headset. And you can listen to music via the bluetooth from your iPhone/Android/whathaveyou. I highly recommend this product. So easy and fun to use. March 8, 2014

A shopper asked: Will the G9x audio kit work with the G9 unit. Specifically, can I buy a new G9x audio kit to mount my G9 unit and use my skullcandy earbuds? When is the realease date and how long after will the audio kits be available as an accessory item? Thank you. Feb 4, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Trevor F: The G9x Audio Kit is not yet available to the best of my knowledge, and I have not had a chance to fit my new G9x units, so I cannot tell you whether the G4/G9 unit will fit the G9x mount and work. Suggest you contact Cardo Systems to find out when the G9x Audio Kit will be available and it's compatibility to older units. Feb 19, 2014

Don M asked: Does the 9X still have the normal 3-5 second delay when switching from intercom to another function, such as music? Feb 19, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael N: Yes there is a delay. I counted 4 seconds to go to intercom. I'm not sure if that is consistant to the other modes. It seemed a shorter time when I pushed the voice command button and said "music on". It seemed to come on pretty quick, I didn't count the time. Apr 8, 2014
