The scala is a my second attempt at a wireless headset. The bluetooth connects with my gps and phone easily enough. The built in fm radio is useless. I live in an Atlanta suburb with plenty of stations. On the scala I only get two channels and don't like either of them. The intercom works well. Make sure your computer is compatible with the unit before you buy. Cardo, the company that makes the Scala does not support Mac or older windows programs. With out this, setting presets is a pain and firmware updates impossible. The user interfaces are tricky at first but become second nature quickly enough.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The EXO1000 is a fantastic helmet for what it costs. I really like the built in sunshade. I don't know why the higher line helmets don't offer it in at least some of their models. I have owned shoei and arai helmets for years. The fit and finish of the scorpion is right there with them. The lining while nice is not quite there yet. The helmet is comfortable but not as plush as the higher priced helmets. I can't comment on it's protection compared to another helmet other than it has the same dot and snell certification. I am not fond of scorpions graphics, but their solids have a finish as nice as any other helmet. Their shields are fantastic, easiest on and off of any I have used. The helmet has a good field of view , and is average in both ventilation and noise levels. Scorpion touts the pump up cheek pads. I would rather they spent that money on a better liner. All in all it is a hard helmet to beat, especially when you factor in features vs cost.
Yes, I recommend this product.
