For high speed conversations?

The Collett's have their own frequency and can only be used with other Collett radio's. Not sure about the others. :idunno:TGZ13 said:Can these be used together or are they only capable of talking to similar units from the same company?
In a classic example of you get what you pay for, Vox only works well on the higher end stuff like A/C......ymmv.cbr99xx said:Haven't had much luck with my Chatterbox(GMRS X1), I have trouble with wind noise continually breaking open the mic. Adjusting the sensitivity only makes screaming necessary and the first word of any sentence is usually lost. I may need to adjust mic placement in my helmet, but I haven't fooled with it yet.
Personally I find the unit to be quite distracting. I suppose it would be fine for touring with someone but I find that a spirited run through my favorite stretch of pavement requires no narration. Who knows, if the VOX worked better my opinion might be different. :idunno:
Yep... That's what I figured. I have a PTT switch that came with the unit just need to mount the darn thing.Baketech said:For your Chatterbox, toss the fooking vox, get a PTT switch and be happy...
You won't be sorry.....takes all the hassle out of it....plus you can sing in your helmet without setting the vox off.... :smilebig:cbr99xx said:Yep... That's what I figured. I have a PTT switch that came with the unit just need to mount the darn thing.
I use my Chatterbox for B2B (bike to bike) and intercom for 2-up riding....it works fine for both. The only limitation is that it defaults to Vox when connected as an intercom. This means you must fiddle with mic position and sensitivity as mentioned before. Still, it works reasonably well, and I highly recommend it for adding to the enjoyment of 2-up riding....TGZ13 said:I like the autocom but I think I would stick to the chatterbox simply b/c thats what most of the guys I ride with have. As for the VOX... screw it I dont want every noise heard by everyone. PTT would work fine to be able to communicate when needed :thumb:
Anyone use the passenger adapters for the chatterbox? How does it work out?
