You may revel in the freedom of hitting the open road on two wheels, but do you have to do it in isolation? Short answer: no. It’s time to embrace the Interphone F5, a real multimedia system for bikers. It allows you to connect with your mates while you’re riding, hear GPS instructions, take and make cellphone calls, and even listen to stereo music (including FM radio with RDS). The intercom has a range of up to 1 200 m, but you can daisy-chain units for conference-type communication with up to six riders over a distance of 2,4 km.
Compatible with most GPS Bluetooth navigators, the Interphone F5 features voice-activated call/answer and call rejection commands. It can be installed on any helmet type (open-face, modular and full-face) and comes with a quick-release mechanism. It’s also waterproof (IP 67-certified).
Price: about R5 000 for a double set and about R3 000 for a single unit. Contact The Gadget Shop on 012-346 2726 or visit www.thegadgetshop.co.za
