Around 40-50 bucks. Not a bad price for 2-3way comms on a pinch or for 2up.

hmmm, the review said it could connect to two others but that page states only one other.

That page even says you have to have the same unit to pair, but he has a Sena there at his disposal so I'm sure he paired it together. I would only buy this for passenger comms. can't go wrong for 45 bucks.

bad review, lets see how it does with 3 - 4 riders out talking to each other.

well it wouldn't do good cause it doesn't support it..... but you can't deny 45 bucks for rider to rider for backup or passenger alternative isn't bad.

No that's not bad, but group coms is a market that everyone is missing the boat on.

I wonder why the bike comms people have dropped the FRS/GMRS comms. Seems like it'd be a lot easier to develop a FRS radio that is the size and usability of these blue tooth devices without the limit of connections. full duplex is the only thing I can see as to why they might not and that's not that big of a deal. Guess the other reason would be digital is a clearer signal but I'd think some signal cleanup could be done on the set to get a pretty clear sound.

Chatterbox does still make a unit like this, but it's pretty bulky in comparison. I guess the hardware to transmit on FRS frequencies has not been able to be shrunk down yet.
