We ordered the Q2 because we felt it was a cheaper alternative to the more expensive G4. Because my Bell helmet is curved along the edges, installation was a bear. I had a hard time getting the clamps to stay put. I didn't want to use the double-sided tape. Learning to use the features is easy, and the controls are large enough they are simple to use even with gloves on. When I get up to speed, I have a hard time trying to understand what my boyfriend is saying. We haven't figured out yet if an adjustment needs to be made to his G4, or if it's the reception of my Q2. After I told fellow riders we only paid $149 for my Q2, a few with G4's said they were impressed with the price and wondered why they didn't get the cheaper one.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I use this on a 3/4 helmet. Getting the speakers located so they don't hurt your ears after hour of riding is difficult. It is doable, but expect to have to fiddle around with it after putting on and removing your helmet several times.
I have had my Q2 to for about 3 years now and the mic boom stopped working last year and finally fell off recently. The Bluetooth works with my Zumo 550, ut it gets real fussy sometimes about linking up to it.
Because of its short life span I would not buy this unit again. The mic boom is too fragile and does not held up well to repeated helmet removal. However if you use it alot the bluetooth and FM radio features are worth it. The FM was the reason for buying this unit so I could listen to my Sirius Radio while I cruise.
Cons Flimsy
Yes, I recommend this product.

Not impressed with this system

I bought one of these a couple years back. I had serious trouble pairing two units. When I did get it to work, the volume could never get high enough to be useful while riding. I liked the concept, and I think it mounts well to my helmet and the earphones are nice and thin. Ultimately, though, after a number of unanswered e-mails to Cardo support, and a faulty boom I couldn't get fixed I was left with something I never use.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Works with few GPS devices

Will work with the Zumo but few other GPS via Bluetooth. The Bluetooth code on most GPS is fixed, unlike mobile phones. The Q2 is also a fixed Bluetooth configuration and of course the numbers aren't the same. No joy. You can transmit your GPS over FM which the Q2 will pick up, but the Q2's FM reception is like a very poor AM radio station with all the hiss.
The mp3 connection works but the sound quality is terrible, no bass, little high end, think mono. If you don't mind using ear buds to your mp3 device, stick with that.
Connectivity to a mobile phone works great, but then again talking on the phone while riding is dicey at best.
I wouldn't recommend this product.
No, I do not recommend this product.
