With the helmet-independent communication system CONNECTED RIDE COM U1 from BMW Motorrad, you can easily have conversations, listen to music or be navigated to your next destination. The system is uncomplicated, intuitive and has a universally fitting design, which means it can be fitted to most BMW motorcycle helmets. The speakers are easy to install and offer both high wearing comfort and a high-quality sound experience in HD quality. The glove-friendly system can be operated either via four buttons on the Connected Ride Com U1, via the App Com U1 or via voice commands. Predefined voice commands can be activated with "Hey Sena". By connecting the smartphone directly to the communication system, the voice commands of the smartphone can also be used.
The system enables communication via Bluetooth or Mesh 2.0, whereby Bluetooth is ideal for conversations with one other partner and offers a range of up to 2 km in open terrain. The mesh connection allows a range of up to 8 km, provided the group consists of at least 6 people. The "Group Mesh Intercom" feature allows for private, closed groups of up to 24 participants, while the "Multi Channel Open Mesh" feature allows for open groups with infinite participants riding within range. So everyone who is on the same channel can communicate with the group without prior pairing. Of course, you can always switch between private and open groups by pressing a button. The "Universal Intercom" function can be used to establish a call connection to a headset from another manufacturer, although there may be limitations regarding the range. Communication via Mesh with communication systems from manufacturers other than Sena or BMW Motorrad is not possible. It is also not possible to integrate third-party communication systems into the group communication via a Bluetooth bridge.
Your own playlist can be easily shared with companions and their ConnectedRide Com U1, and up to 10 FM radio stations can be saved so that there is always a good soundtrack when driving. The intelligent audio mixing for example automatically reduces the volume of an intercom call if a navigation announcement is being made at the same time. When the headset is switched on, an LED informs you about the charging status of the battery by flashing accordingly. If the charge status becomes too low during use, an automatic voice announcement is made. The battery life is up to 13 hours with Bluetooth Intercom and up to 8 hours with Mesh Intercom.
