Just to be clear, the short-range Cardo Freecom 2+ (0.8km/0.5 miles) will connect bike to bike as well as between rider and passenger.
The dimensions of the Cardo Freecom 2+ measures around 74x46x16mm and weighs 34g. It has an IP67 waterproof and dustproof rating. When it comes to talk time, this device can last up to 13 hours.
The product’s connection is handled by Bluetooth technology and can be paired up with two compatible gadgets at once. More notably, the unit can pair-up with select non-Cardo devices, thanks to the Cardo Gateway technology. Apart from its hands-free call capability, it can also adjust speaker volume automatically.
Tailoring features can be done through either the Cardo Connect App, the Cardo updater program on Windows or MacOS, or the default inputs of the unit. However, not all settings can be adjusted via all three sources, and there are certain objects that can only be changed through one of the given methods.
For your entertainment demands, you can choose between a music player and the integrated radio, both of which can be accessed on your phone. Parallel audio streaming is also the perfect feature to multitask. It lets you receive GPS feedback even when listening to music, or while on an intercom call. The product can also prioritise audio output levels based on their sources, between foreground and background.
PROS: Sound quality and design.
CONS: Relatively short transmission range.
