BMW Motorrad Connected Ride Com U1
What could be better than enjoying your motorcycling impressions together with your passenger or even an entire group? Have conversations, listen to music or simply navigate to your next destination – it can be that easy. The ConnectedRide Com U1 communication system makes it a reality as it is compatible with any helmet. It is straight-forward, intuitive to use and becomes a matter of course: just what communication should be like.
With its universally compatible design, the system can be easily attached to most BMW Motorrad helmets. And the easy-to-install speakers are not only very comfortable to wear, but also deliver a high-quality sound experience in HD quality.
The system is easy and intuitive to operate with gloves thanks to four buttons on the ConnectedRide Com U1 or alternatively using the system’s own Com U1 app. You can also activate predefined voice commands by saying “hey Sena”. And if you directly link up your smartphone to the communication system, you can use your smartphone’s voice commands as usual.
With ConnectedRide Com U1, you can choose between two connection types: use Bluetooth if you want to talk to another person, giving you a range of up to 2 km across exposed terrain. Mesh even offers a range of up to 8 km – providing your group has at least six members.
However, Mesh connections can do even more: Group Mesh Intercom enables private groups with up to 24 participants. Multi Channel Open Mesh, on the other hand, enables public groups with an infinite number of participants riding within your range. In this case, anyone on the same channel can communicate with the group without having to pair beforehand. You will always have the option of switching between private and public groups at the touch of a button.
With ConnectedRide Com U1, you can easily share your playlist with your passenger and their ConnectedRide Com U1, making sure you’ll be on the go with the same soundtrack. The built-in FM radio can also store up to 10 stations and be easily switched on and off at the push of a button.
ConnectedRide Com U1 can integrate a Fit-for-All or a V3 communication system into the Mesh group. However, when using the V3 communication system in conjunction with ConnectedRide Com U1, you need to initially configure a setting in the app or Device Manager.
Depending on the operating mode, you can operate different functions by voice control. English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Japanese and Russian are available.
An LED informs you about the charge level of the battery and an automatic voice notification warns of a low battery. The Bluetooth intercom runs for up to 13 hours, Mesh intercom for up to 8 hours.
Thanks to the quick charging function, you can also make the most of short breaks: within a charging time of just 20 minutes you get 3.5 hours of use in Mesh intercom mode and 6 hours in Bluetooth intercom mode.
