A buddy of mine and I are going to be riding back to Tennessee in May
from California. We are looking for the best bike to bike communicator
system we can find at a reasonable cost. ($300-$400). I have ruled out
Chatterbox, had one and it was a POS. We are looking at Autocom and
Starcom. Both recommend Kenwood Freetalk FRS (1-2 mile range) or GMRS
1W or 2W for longer range. I plan to hook a XM radio and a GPS to the
unit in addition to the Bike to bike radio. I would like to hear
recommendations from real world users. What we are looking for most is
dependability. We want it to work before we leave and don't want to have
to fine tune it on the way. I am planning on using a PTT instead of VOX
setup. We will both be riding solo so we don't need pillion capability.
I am wondering if we need 2W radios. The cost goes up from $80 for FRS
to 250-300 for 2W GMRS. I don't expect we will me much farther that a
mile apart most of the time.
Does anyone have any experience with these two systems? Or know the best
place to buy a couple of units?
