K !!
IMPORTANT! Before using “One+8” Intercom, you should assign
your G9 device(s) a Buddy Name, so that other “One+8” participants
can call you by this name.
If you change your G9 Buddy Name, you must Flash Pair again with
your “One+8” Buddies for their G9 to receive your new Buddy Name.
Visit the Cardo Community platform
http://community.cardosystems.com to assign your G9
device’s Buddy Name using your PC. See Section 3 for more
details.
Until you assign a Buddy Name to your G9, it will be known by
its generic “One+8” Buddy name, “scala rider”.
“One+8” Intercom Buddies will be able to connect to your G9 by
manually choosing your G9 from their “One+8” Intercom Buddy
List (see Section 6.1: Option 2: Manual Mode).
3. If Flash-Pairing was successful, a purple light appears for
2 seconds.
NOTE: If your scala rider G9 already has a full list of 8 paired
“One+8” Intercom Buddies, pairing another buddy will replace the
buddy that you have not spoken to for the longest time.

channel that you can set up on-the-go with other scala rider G9 or
G4 users that you see along the way.
The Click-to-Link feature can be disabled on your G9 effectively blocking
any attempt by a third party to send a Click-to-Link request to you.
