cardo SHO-1 units within a range of up to 350 m. The
recipients will hear a “Signal!” voice announcement. To reach a
maximum number of riders, the message is automatically
forwarded to all paired units within the recipient’s range. In this
manner the total range is extended to up to 1 km.

and so connect both mobile phones and the GPS to your
scala rider G9.
