After riding my bike around for almost a year, I got fed up with the lack of GPS. While there are several options out there, I wanted to just leverage Google Maps from my Droid phone. Really all I needed was a call out not an up to date map that I have to look at. Enter the Scala Rider G9. What a great device. It took about two minutes to get it paired to my phone and now I do not have to stop every couple of miles to make sure I am on the right road. The callouts from Google Maps are perfect and I am also finding myself using my headset for music. The voice activation features were a bit annoying, but managed to figure out how to turn them off so I can talk to my passenger without turning everything on or off (hold the volume up and down). Updating the Rider is pretty easy too as long as you have a Windows based PC. The actual speakers can get a bit tinny, but only at super high volumes. Answering calls is a snap as well and is a nice feature though I do not recommend answering or making calls while on the road. My only gripe is that it is a bit pricey. If you are in the market for a great headset this is the one to get.
