    Thanks, Squish.

    I'm a fan of connecting when you need something, and disconnecting after the communication is done. Listening to guys work while I'm trying to concentrate in the trees, or on the ground, is a distraction. Same in reverse.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    For biking it's somehow very intuitive. You never hear breathing or any sort of engine or ambient noise from the other person/bike. None of that activates the mic. By live all the time I don't mean you constantly 'hear' the other person. I mean all they have to do is talk and your music lessens in volume and the conversation is crystal clear. Somehow they've got it sorted pretty well for voice recognition as my bike has had a obnoxiously loud exhaust on it until yesterday(I swapped it out to a tamer one) and no issues with noise. But. I don't know how that would work/transfer to treework and the noises dealt with there?

    That would drive me bugshit if I had to listen to amplified sniffling and coughing.
    Thanks for the info!

    To update the functionality of these cardo units a bit ill bump this thread. So now that I've had a bit more time with them their operation is quite impressive. We have extremely good range for comms, crystal clear and automatic re pairing if we do go out of range. The comms are live all the time which is nice for riding, no finicky buttons to find or push. The normal operation is digital mesh comms live all the time, music streaming which automatically diminishes slightly when conversation happens, and also I am now pairing a radar as a second (or third depending how you look at it) connection which is set to override comms and music when an alert occurs. Delivering radar warnings right to my ears. All priorities and volumes are infinitely adjustable through an app or through button prompts on the device. For biking these are definetly the way to go. Feature rich and flawless function.

    The next upgrade eventually for me will be the jbl speaker option which is supposed to be sweet.

    I've always owned a radar detector since I was 16. It's not a guarantee, but it's worked for me so far!
    Alot of things on the road set it off now. I think newer cars with the sensors that tell a driver that they're very close to an object is almost constant now. Cops checking speed makes a different noise, KA band I think for cops mostly.

    Yah I've had one forever but recently upgraded to a uniden r1. Top rated, great price, great false alert filtering too. Completely programmable to eliminate false alerts from bsm, radar assisted cruise and all that jazz. The extreme long range description is accurate too. Just another tool in the box, certainly no guarantee by any means.

    I need to upgrade I think. I hit the mute button way to much now. Mine has great range I think, Cobra I think. It'll start beeping long before I can see the cop.

    How do you keep it dry on the bike?

    You don't. You put it away in a ziploc. But one, I don't ride in the rain by choice, and two I don't really run the risk of tickets if I do. Where I live is considered semi-desert. Rain is not a big concern.

    Radars have come along ways. I used to think my old bel had good range too. There's a plethora of information on the web about detectors now and I researched the living hell out of it. The uniden r1 has the best range of any detector for sale, this I'm confident of. The r3 version of it has a gps chip too which I don't really need so I saved the coin on the non gps version. Same detection sensitivity. You can pay twice as much or more for a detector with less range and more false alerts.

    Jeez...I just drive the Jag way faster than the cops can keep up with, then slide into a secluded position and let them hunt on down the road to their heart's content . Nothin' to it.
