Scala Rider headset

I recently got a new TomTom Rider 2nd Edition, and it came with one Scala Rider Bluetooth headset.

In order to communicate with a passenger, do I need to buy another Scala Rider or is there a "slave" unit from Cardio?

I see on their website they sell a Teamset, which includes two headsets.

I wonder what the range might be as well, if you could talk bike-to-bike at all.

Cheers!

Because my usual riding buddy has a Kwacker Cruiser, he is generally several KM's behind...

Get a collett. Hell, you could take a day trip and buy direct.

In my opinion, never humble, it is the best bike to bike communicator on the market. Plus you canuks should support each other or something.

If you doubt me give them a call, I believe they are in winnipeg, and ask them their repair policy.

You cannot buy a slave for the Scala headset.

A Teamset will let you talk rider to pillion plus it will communicate with the TomTom. The Teamsets are factory matched so you cannot mix them.

The theoretical range of Teamsets is the Bluetooth standard or about 10 metres. We use a Master / Slave Teamset for bike to bike and it works reliability up to about 300 metres depending on conditions. You can always get at least 50 metres.

I have spoken to the fella's at Collett, they are only an hour away from me. Thats probably the route I will take, although I would like more range than 2 miles.

K1W1 - Have you or anyone, for that matter, actually been able to pair your Teamset master with a TomTom Rider? I have so far been unsuccessful.

The Rider only seems to have the option to connect to a 'TomTom headset' (which when selected does not discover the Teamset)...

Actually the new scala rider Q2 is backwards compatible with the team set. Just use the Q2 as your primary, get a bunch of extra features and use the team set for your passenger. However a pair of Q2s is very nice and is ok bike to bike for insight range.

I've since discovered that if you select 'No' to the question of whether or not you want to connect to a TomTom headset, the Rider will then search for any other discoverable bluetooth headset. It then successfully connects to the Teamset!

The same also works for the Q2 - I've tested both...
