I swear by Autocom.... Great equipment.... A little pricy but in my opinion worth it.

I use a wired headset which is clear and lightweight.

They do now do a Bluetooth unit which you can slip under the collar of most helmets...if you want a wire free system but I have no idea what it is like but if the rest of their equipment is anything to go by it will be fantastic!

I do not have a trophy yet  :161:, but I use a Sena smh10 on my Kawasaki Voyager.  Pairs with my iPhone for phone and music, and the intercom works great, but the Kawi does not have built in bluetooth on the bike itself like the trophy does. From what I have read, the sena smh10, or new smh20, should work great.

I agree with Cropbiker I too use the wired autocom and find it very good and reliable.

I have the G9 and I would not recommend it.  It works OK now but it was just too hard to set up and the support from Cardo was abysmal.  I had to figure it out all on my own.

I use the Starcom (Made by Autocom) preferred hard wired , yes you have a wire and have to plug in everytime you get on , but it works all the time  :017:

Plugging in when you get on for Autocom or Starcom takes ooh... All of 5 seconds so no hardship and to know that it will NEVER be out of battery after a long day riding for your music, intercom, bike-to-bike and probably quite importantly those nav instructions at the end of the trip trying to find that little out of the way B&B in an unfamiliar town is well worth it!

Speaker hacking is a must in my opinion easy to do and works perfect (don't know why triumph did not fit audio out but that's another topic)
