Looking for a Bluetooth headset I could use driving in my convertible, I researched and bought several last summer. This headset is OK. The main beef I have with it is that the "noise cancelling" is actually a noise gate.

Great service. Product is good but i would suggest improving it by making the cord longer or not as springy. Cardo Blutooth I owned a Cardo product previously and really liked it. Because it has no batteries in the ear piece, it is very light on your ear.

I have owned three other ear pieces and finally one that is enough. I can even use it while driving with windows down and still have a conversation.

Your wall charger and USB adaptor cable serve two purposes: 1. Charging the G4 from any A/C wall socket or from a USB port on your computer (charging time from computer takes longer). 2. Downloading software upgrades from any PC running Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7. (see section 4.4 for details).
4.2 SETTINGS CUSTOMIZATION: The G4 offers various customizable settings which allow you to personalize the device based on your preferences. Among these settings, you can: Enable/Disable Spoken Status Announcements which provide your connectivity status, i.e. whether you are in mobile phone or intercom mode, and confirm changes of such modes. By default the feature is ON. Set custom AGC and VOX sensitivity levels suited to your specific riding style and conditions. NOTE: G4 settings can be customized in two ways:

1. Use the enclosed Allen Wrench to remove both Allen screws and release the Helmet Clamps back plate. 2. Determine the location on the helmet where the Helmet Clamp must be attached. 3. Adjust the Helmet Clamps location on the Helmet so that the microphone is located opposite the center of your mouth. You may need to reposition the Clamp repeatedly until you identify the best spot. (Be sure to clean the selected area prior to the gluing process). 4. Use the pre-moistened Towlette to clean the helmet area where you want to install the Glue Plate. Allow to dry thoroughly. 5. Peel the foil cover from the Glue Plates adhesive pad. 6. Place the Glue Plate into position according to #3. Press firmly 15 seconds on all 3 parts of the Glue Plate. 7. The adhesive pad bonds to full strength over the next 24 hours. Therefore we recommend not using the G4 during this 24 hour period. 8. Fasten the Clamp to the Glue Plate using the Allen screws that were previously removed. If you have purchased a helmet clamp version with the corded microphone, please proceed as follows:
5.2 ATTACHING THE CORDED MICROPHONE TO A FULL-FACED HELMET If you are using the corded microphone version, you must first make sure your helmet clamp is attached to your helmet as described in previous section (5.1). Clean the exact spot on the internal padding of the helmet, opposite your mouth, where the microphone will be placed. a. Peel the foil cover from the adhesive Velcro pad and place the Velcro pad on the chosen location opposite your mouth. b. Attach the microphone to the Velcro, as shown in photo. c. When done, tighten the screws of the clamp. 5.3 POSITIONING THE MICROPHONE AND SPEAKERS The microphone must be positioned in front of Speaker A the center of your mouth as detailed above. Attach the speakers to the Velcro inside your helmet, opposite your ears (short speaker Speaker B cord for left ear & long speaker cord for right ear). Use the supplied Velcro pads if needed. Cable Using two speakers inside the Speaker B helmet may be prohibited in certain jurisdictions. If this is the case, you should tuck away the long corded speaker underneath the helmet padding as follows: Speaker B Lead the speaker cord [B] alongside the rim of the padding to the right side and then back to the left side, near speaker [A]. Then place the speaker [B] underneath the padding.

9.1 INTRODUCTION The G4 provides you with an impressive Bike-to-Bike Intercom range by simply flipping up the antenna. The Flip-up antenna allows you to maximize intercom range with Flip-up Antenna other bikers at up to 1mile / 1.6 km for extended range (subject to terrain). The antenna is also useful when riding in dense urban environments that may affect the transmission quality. You may keep the Flip-up Antenna open when not using the intercom, even though there is no particular need to do so. To set up one or two Intercom Bluetooth connections, you must first pair your G4 with the other devices. In this manual such other devices will be referred to as CHANNEL A and CHANNEL B respectively. Pairing is a one-time process. Once completed, the G4s will remain paired and automatically recognize each other whenever they are within range. For details on Intercom use with other scala rider units, please refer to section 9.11 below The G4 has two Intercom channels available for multiple intercom connections. Therefore, your G4 can communicate simultaneously with up to two other G4s. If one of these other G4s is connected to yet another G4, then all four participants can enter into a 4-way conference mode (see section 9.10c below).

9.2 BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY The G4 can also conduct Intercom communications with earlier scalarider models in different configurations and you can always change your preferences. There are other scalarider models available that your G4 can connect to, and each of these connections comes with specific characteristics and / or limitations. In terms of range, Intercom communications between your G4 and another scala rider unit is limited to the distance of the lesser-range device. For example, connecting your G4 with a Q2 pro unit will enable intercom distances of up to 2,300 ft / 700 m, which is the maximum rated distance the Q2 pro can achieve. In the section below you can find out how to pair your G4 with other scalarider models. In addition, the G4 is also fully compatible with the Schuberth SRC-System. For details, visit 9.3 BEFORE STARTING THE INTERCOM The G4 has two buttons designated for quick connection to two other units. These other units are referred to as CHANNEL A and CHANNEL B. In the following sections you will also learn how to add a third participant and conduct an intercom conference.
Channel A Button 14 scala rider G4

Channel B Button

Since the G4 can be paired with all models in the scalarider family, we recommend that you first pair it according to your preferred configuration and then change or modify as often as you wish later, when the need arises. For example: If you typically use the intercom to communicate with two friends who both use G4 units, then you should pair it as described below in section 9.10 b. Therefore, please select your initial pairing preference from the following options in the table below and then refer to the pairing procedure as described in the respective section of this manual. When done, return to the explanations in section 9.4 Initiate Intercom Calls. Select your preferred Pairing Option
UNITS TO BE PAIRED Your G4 with another G4 Your G4 with a Q2/Q2 pro Your G4 with one earlier scalarider model Your G4 with two other G4 units Your G4 with one G4 and one Q2/Q2 pro unit Your G4 with two Q2/Q2 pro units Your G4 with one G4 and one other scalarider model Your G4 with one Q2/Q2 pro and one other scalarider model Your G4 with two other scalarider models Your G4 as part of 4-Way intercom call configuration GO TO SECTION 9.10 a 9.11 a 9.11 b 9.10 b 9.11 c 9.11 c 9.11 c 9.11 c 9.11 c 9.10 c
Now that you have completed the pairing process, you can start using the intercom. If you havent done so yet, please refer to the table above and complete your preferred pairing configuration before you proceed with this section. There are two ways to start an Intercom call with devices that are paired to your scala rider G4 (make sure you are in Standby mode): VOICE CONNECT: Preferred for relatively brief conversations as it takes the channel into standby mode after 30 seconds of silence. Start talking loudly Once you start talking loudly, an Intercom call will be established with both paired devices, CHANNEL A and CHANNEL B (if both are available). The Intercom call will stay on until all participants remain silent for 30 seconds. (applicable for 2-way communication). CHANNEL BUTTON CONNECT: Preferred for extended conversations as it leaves the channel open and active. Single tap the CHANNEL A Button to add or remove CHANNEL A from an Intercom call. Single tap the CHANNEL B Button to add or remove CHANNEL B from an Intercom call.

NOTE: While the Intercom is on, the Redial and Voice Dial functions will be disabled.
9.5 RECEIVING INTERCOM CALLS Once another paired device tries calling you via intercom, the call will begin almost instantly.
NOTE: The G4s preset priority modes have been set in a way to avoid incoming intercom calls from interrupting mobile phone calls and GPS instructions in progress. In such case the intercom caller will hear a busy signal and you will hear two beeps, indicating that an intercom caller is trying to page you. (see section 4.3 for details on audio priorities of paired devices). scala rider G4 15
9.6 VOICE CONNECT FEATURE (VOX) The G4 offers VOX technology for safe and hands-free operation of some key functions. For incoming calls, just pronounce loudly any word (e.g. hello). To reject an incoming call, remain silent for about 15 seconds. To reject an Intercom call remain silent for 30 seconds.
NOTE: The Enable/Disable Voice Connect feature affects only the Intercom functionality.
ENABLE/DISABLE VOX can be done via the PC software and directly on your G4 via the Settings Customization Voice Menu (see section 4.2). 9.7 RESET PAIRING (RESTORING THE ORIGINAL DEFAULT CONFIGURATION) This section is only relevant once you have completed a pairing process You can delete all of your paired devices at any time as follows: 1. With the G4 turned ON, press and hold the Mobile Button for at least six seconds until the Red and Blue Lights begin rapidly alternating. 2. Press and hold the Volume Up Button for three seconds. 3. The Red and Blue Lights will flash five times simultaneously and then the G4 will turn off, confirming that Reset was successfully completed. 9.8 NOTEWORTHY ISSUES a. Connecting the G4 to other units To pair your G4 to other scala rider models, please refer to section 9.10 c below. b. Busy Status (When using a G4) When attempting an Intercom call with a device that is already on a Phone/GPS/Intercom call, you will hear two beeps indicating the other device is busy.

16 scala rider G4

c. Automatic Reconnection of the Intercom If the G4 and another paired unit go out of range and disconnect from each other, the G4 will immediately try to reconnect to the other unit. You can manually reconnect the intercom call while the G4 is in Standby mode by pressing the CHANNEL A or the CHANNEL B Button to connect to the respective lost connection. d. Conference Mode Limitations Whenever you enter the Intercom Conference mode among three or even four participants (including yourself), the participants who maintain simultaneously two active connections will not be able to receive mobile phone calls or GPS messages as long as the conference call is in progress (see details in sections 9.10 b and 9.10 c) 9.9 TROUBLESHOOTING THE INTERCOM First, make sure your microphone is located properly in front of the center of your mouth. The G4 is designed for use in loud environments. Therefore, you should test the Intercom functionality only in a noisy environment, such as next to an idling motorcycle and not indoors. Please also verify that the G4s were paired together properly by following the instructions in the relevant Setup sections. 9.10 USING THE G4 FOR INTERCOM WITH OTHER G4 UNITS PAIRING LED INDICATION FOR INTERCOM CHANNELS

Passenger 2 is paired to Driver 1 and to Passenger 4 Passenger 4 is paired to Driver 3 and to Passenger 2
IMPORTANT: Since both Passengers each use two Bluetooth connections during the conference mode, they will both be disconnected from their mobile phones until the conference mode is terminated. Upon termination, both Passengers will automatically re-connect to their mobile phones. Both Drivers 1 and 3 remain connected to their mobile phones or GPS devices during the 4-way intercom call.
PAIRING FOUR SCALA RIDER G4s To converse in the 4-Way intercom conference mode, the four G4s must be paired as shown in the biker illustration above. All four units should initially be turned off. Step One: Pair Driver 1 to Passenger 2 via Channel A as follows a. Turn both G4s ON by pressing and holding the Mobile Buttons until the Blue Light flashes three times. b. Both G4s should now be flashing slowly in Blue. c. Press and hold CHANNEL (A) BUTTON on both G4s for at least six seconds until the G4s BLUE or RED Light begins flashing rapidly, indicating that they have entered the Intercom Pairing mode. (See Table in section 9.10) d. Release the buttons and wait until both G4s display a solid light for two seconds, indicating that the two G4s are now paired for Intercom connection. (This may take up to two minutes). Step Two: Pair Driver 3 to Passenger 4 via Channel A Repeat the above pairing procedure between Driver 3 and Passenger 4. Step Three: Pair Passenger 2 to Passenger 4 via Channel B Repeat the above pairing procedure between Passenger 2 and Passenger 4 using the Channel B button.

9.10c. FOUR-WAY INTERCOM When connected to three other G4 units, your G4 can also participate in a 4-way Conference Intercom Call (full duplex) as explained below. Please note that the 4-way conference operates in a linear manner, whereby the two passengers serve as the connecting links for the entire group. Therefore, if one of the Passengers disconnects, the 4-way conference mode will be interrupted until that passenger is reconnected. 4-Way Intercom between up to two couples on two motorcycles two drivers (1 and 3) and two passengers (2 and 4)

Your 4-Way Conference Intercom Pairing is now complete and ready to use.
NOTE: If the Pairing process is not completed within two minutes the G4s will return to Standby mode.

Initiate Intercom calls from a G4
There are two ways to start an Intercom call with your paired headsets while the G4 is in Standby mode: VOICE CONNECT: Start talking loudly Once you start talking loudly, an Intercom call will be established with both paired devices, CHANNEL A and CHANNEL B (if both are available). CHANNEL BUTTON CONNECT: Single tap the CHANNEL A or "B" Button to add or remove the chosen channel from an Intercom call.


Click-to-Link is the spontaneous social nature of your scala rider G4. This unique feature will enable you to instantly initiate one-to-one intercom calls with other G4 users in the near vicinity without going through a pairing process in advance. Think of it as a private bike-tobike channel that you can set up on-the-fly with other scala rider G4 users that you spot next to a traffic light or along the road. The Click-to-Link feature can of course be disabled at any time, blocking any attempt by other G4 users to establish a spontaneous link. USING CLICK-TO-LINK Disable/Enable Click-to-Link: The feature can be turned on or off via the Settings Customization Menu (see Section 4.2). By default, this feature is DISABLED. AUDIO SOURCES AND PRIORITIES The different audio sources connected to the G4 are prioritized as shown below, i.e. the higher priority source will always override and interrupt the lower one.
For example, incoming mobile phone calls and GPS navigation instructions will interrupt ongoing Click-to-Link calls, while incoming Clickto-Link calls will interrupt the audio from the built-in FM Radio etc. Click-to-Link established calls and Intercom calls have the same priority: If one is in use, the other is unable to interrupt. Therefore, a Click-to-Link request cannot interrupt an Intercom call in progress, and vice-versa.

* The G4 searches for another Click-to-Link enabled unit for up to 10 seconds, while beeping and flashing red.
NOTE: Click-to-Link connections will not replace or change your current Rider A and Rider B intercom pairings. Click-to-Link uses a separate temporary channel to connect to a Click-to-Link conversation partner.
