Cardo Systems Announces New Snowmobile to Snowmobile Bluetooth® Intercom and Entertainment System

PITTSBURGH, PA – January 19, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Cardo Systems, Inc., the world’s market leader in wireless Bluetooth communications for helmet headsets, announced today the availability of its new wireless scala rider G4 PowerSet with corded rather than boom microphones and intercom system specifically designed for snowmobile riders. Now snowmobile riders can speak by intercom with their friends riding on other snowmobiles.

The corded scala rider G4 PowerSet is a set of two pre-paired Bluetooth intercom devices. Each comes with an ultra-thin corded microphone and clamps on to the snowmobile helmet in minutes. The product offers clear audio communications among two or three separate riders, or among four riders in total made up of two rider-passenger groups. Intercom communication is full duplex, meaning conversations are simultaneous, and do not have the delay of older “walkie talkie” systems. In addition to the Bluetooth intercom between snowmobiles, snowmobilers may also speak wirelessly via their Bluetooth phones.

The scala rider G4 PowerSet with corded microphones is a true multi-device entertainment system that accepts and plays wireless Stereo music from iPods or other MP3 music devices that are A2DP compatible. For added built-in entertainment, each headset sports an embedded FM radio with RDS that allows seek and scan functions and users to save favorites with six station user preset.  Additionally, the product can receive in-helmet voice instructions from a Bluetooth enabled GPS device. Voice-recognition (for answering, dialing or rejecting calls), multilingual spoken status announcements (to report incoming and outgoing headset connections) and AGC technology for automatic headset volume adjustments (based on ambient noise and driving speed) all contribute to completely hands-free communication and enjoyment.

To fit into the tightest-fitting snowmobile helmets, the G4 PowerSet features a corded noise-canceling microphone designed for maximum rider comfort. The corded microphone allows for easy maneuvering and can be adjusted according to rider preference. Installation of the headset can be completed in five minutes or less.

Safety is paramount with this system that provides riders with the security of plenty of talk time and an innovative, water and weather resistant design.

The new corded scala rider G4 PowerSet for snowmobiles is now available through select distributors, retail outlets, specialty snowmobile shops, and directly from the Cardo Systems web site at www.cardosystems.com with a suggested retail price of $489.95.

  1. Contrary to popular belief, this “snowmobile” version is NOT the same as the G4 motorcycle version but with a corded mic. According to Cardo tech support, the snow version actually runs different software, and is NOT compatible with G4 upgrades for the motorcycle version!

    I am finding this out the hard way, as Cardo released a 3.0 upgrade for G4 back in March ’11 that adds significant new features and bug fixes, but I’m sitting here mid-July still not able to apply that upgrade to my snowmobile set.
